Crazy Horse Memorial in the Black Hills, in Custer County, South Dakota depicts the legendary Ogalala Lakota Warrior Crazy Horse designed by sculptor Korczak Ziółkowski. The Memorial consists of the mountain carving and an “Indian Museum of North America”. The site is located only 27 miles from the Mount Rushmore memorial.
Crazy Horse Memorial is built in competition with the Mount Rushmore Memorial. The head of Crazy Horse will be 27 m tall which is 8 m taller than the president sculptures at Mount Rushmore. The monument has been in progress since 1948 and is far from completion. If completed, it may become one of the world’s largest sculpture.
Astrogeographic position of the Statue of liberty for morphogenetic field level 3 which describes the atmosphere and energetical topics of the sculpture itself: : the place of the Crazy Horse memorial is located in self-defensive, solid water sign Scorpio the sign of giants, colossal statues, imaging and sculpting particularly in situ. I have described a list of spectatcular examples for Scorpio`s role as the most important sign of sculpting, stone masonry and welding in my blog text: Scorpio as the Sign of Sculpting. As the sign of nomadic cultures Scorpio also represent the most relevant astrological resonating sign for nomadic mative american cultures.
The 2nd coordinate of the site of the Crazy Horse monument is located right in between the earth sign Taurus the sign of the earth, possession of territory, roots, grounding, food, buffaloes and practical, neutral air sign Gemini the sign of road crossings, signposts, symbols, information, learning, technology, dualism and the most important astrological resonating sign of US – culture. This combination of the position of the monument between Taurus the topic of defending one teritory and Gemini the sign of signposts stands for the purpose of the Crazy Horse Monument project as an attempted response to the Mount Rushmore Memorial which from a native American point of view was built as a memorial of the dominance of the US presidents over the land. This also means that it is not actually a native american tribal monument in the first place but rather a monument of the defense of the role of Native american tribals in the USA.
That appeal to the dominance of european style US culture over the nature of the american lands that is represented by the Mount Rushmore memorial is explained by its astrogeographic positions in Leo with Capricorn. Self-centered fire sign Leo the sign of royalty and kingdom, stands for its absolutism and the resonance with the central government in Washington (in Leo). Herarchical, conservative, Strict earth sign Capricorn the sign of control, governments, laws, the ruling classes and astrogeographical resonating sign of London stands for the roots of the US american political culture and social ideals in the traditional system of the british rule and parliamentary system. Capricorn is also the ascendant and the moon sign in the US Natal Chart.
