The Ashmolean Synchronicity
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.
