The Ashmolean Synchronicity

Thursday May 24th 2018

So the Ashmolean Museum, the oldest in this country, tweeted that it was 335 today — because it’s really old and really up-to-date at the same time!

I couldn’t help but get the chart up, assuming that a sunrise chart for the day would do — and lo, dear readers, there was a piece of utmost astrological synchronicity. I did a double-take. Uranus, on May 24, 1683, was at 0° Taurus — just as it is today in 2018.

This seems quite fitting for a museum, which is about artefacts that explore and explain ideas, a perfect example of Uranian energy in a Taurus building.

The Museum’s founder, Elias Ashmole, was among other things a keen astrologer, and great friend of one William Lilley, author of Christian Astrology, one of the most influential astrological texts in English. Ashmole, of course, had Jupiter at 1° Aquarius on his MC — just where Mars transited this week. His chart is quite perfect for a museum founder — take a look at that rich 12th house and inquisitive 1st.

    I have uranus and pluto conjunct in the 12th house. This is the first time I’ve heard anything in the 12th house described as rich. So are mine too? I’d really like to learn what those two are up to! I just assumed no good. 🙂
    I thought I was already following them. What a lovely account!

    Beautiful synchronicity! Great work?

    Thanks to this post I’ve become a fan of the Ashmolean’s twitter page – doesn’t the museum have a lively and interesting programme of activities/exhibits? As you say, very Uranus in such a solid, Taurus building. Wish I lived nearer.

    Plus the Ashmolean and I share a birthday! And I have Jupiter at 2 degrees of Aquarius. Nice personal synchronicity.
