Planet: Neptune and Jupiter
Color: turquoise, green sea
In his apparent stroke in the Zodiac the Sun appears to enter this sign when nature is about to awaken from its winter sleep. In temperate countries, such as the Mediterranean where did the Hellenistic astrology, the weather is still winter but at times, the sun gets hotter, announcing the imminent spring.
This alternation expresses the duality of this sign, twice as much as the two planets that govern it: Jupiter and Neptune. The mystery surrounding the fish depends precisely on the speed with which they live the two opposing and complementary components.
Sensitive, even so morbid, Pisces “feel” before “understand” (exile of Mercury) and surprise not only others but also themselves. To decipher this complex sign, to which they belong imaginative writers and artists but also businessmen warned, only careful analysis of the subject can determine whether prevails Jupiter or Neptune. If Jupiter is the planet out, it will be personnel from the realistic intuition: therefore need for commerce, politics, creative manual activities such as art, crafts, agriculture and gardening. If Neptune is to prevail, we will develop intuitive-dreamers personality, typical of the great visionaries, artists and geniuses with unusual qualities. Not for nothing, Michelangelo and Einstein belong to this sign.
The ambivalence of the Pisces horoscope is also found in the duplicity (or multiplicity) of the affections: caught between a type and its opposite, often leave coexist more bonds. The same ambivalence can lead them to ambiguous attitudes, that may result, when Jupiter and Neptune are particularly dissonant, even nell’imbroglio. But it is infrequent cases more often, positive and negative elements follow one another, which justifies the insatiable thirst for confirmations.
If in the past, the drive towards ideals is realized in mysticism or in monastic life today you may manifest in frequent changes of partners or work, in politics or in the suffering experienced as a vocation.
The Renaissance astrology assigns to this sign of the standing government, confirmed by modern astrology that has extended to the lymph circulation and the immune system.
The Grand Canyon National Park is located in northern Arizona; The South Shore Visitor Center is 125 km (75 miles) north of Flagstaff, Arizona. You can get there by car for an hour or an hour and a half trip. The South Visitor Center, as well as the North Visitor Center, are approximately 250 km (150 miles) east of Las Vegas but you must drive in more than 400 km (250 miles) to get to either.
The South Visitor Center is only 10 miles from the North Visitor Center, but if you want to get from one to the other you have to travel in your car for over 200 miles.
The Grand Canyon is amazingly spectacular. It is almost 320 km (200 miles) long and 16 to 25 km (10 to 15 miles) wide. In its lowest place runs the channel of the Colorado River that is 1.6 km (1 mile) deep directly below the edge of the plateau.
It is not only a simple canyon but a network of canyons, fissures and canyons formed in the rocks with hills, plateaus and rock spirals between them. The sedimented layers of multiple colors take different shades as the angle of sunlight and shadows vary throughout the day. It is truly one of the natural wonders of the world.
Its rocks formed at the bottom of a vast sea millions of years ago when the sedimentary deposits accumulated until reaching a thickness of almost 1 kilometer and a half (1 mile).
Later, a large collision of the tetonic plates elevated all this region to form the plateau of Colorado that now is between 2,100 and 2750 meters (7,000 to 9,000 feet) on the level of the sea.
The Colorado River basin was formed by bringing the water out of this region and soon erosion began through the layers of sediment. Eventually the river formed this channel of almost two kilometers (1.30 miles) deep that we now call “The Grand Canyon”.
The Visitor Center of the South Shore is the favorite place to visit the park. There you can see the best views. It has the best facilities and is the most accessible. The North Shore Visitor Center is less reachable and closes from late October to mid-May, only a few hikers who want to avoid crowds prefer it.
Multiple commercial airlines operate between Las Vegas, Nevada; Flagstaff, Arizona or Phoenix, Arizona and the Grand Canyon Airport in Tusayan just a few miles south of the South Shore Visitor Center. Most of the people admire the canyon from the South Bank Trail. This road is closed to traffic from May to October, but there is a free bus service that takes tourists to all the most interesting points.
There are several paths that take you to the bottom of the canyon, which is for serious hikers and hikers, even offering trips on a mule back (only to be booked in advance); There are also helicopter and airplane tours departing from Tusayan Airport to see a spectacular view of the canyon from the heights (flying eagle)
The National Park Service maintains the Grand Canyon Villa on the South Shore. In it you can find several hotels and restaurants as well as a gas station, grocery store, laundry and several souvenir shops. The small village of Tusayan is approximately 10 km (6 miles) from the south shore. In it there are more hotels and restaurants, a few shops, gas stations, an IMAX theater and an airport.
This trip will leave an undying memory in the memory of the visitor to show you the magnificence of this spectacle of spectacular grandeur that highlights the smallness of the human being before the magnitude of the world that surrounds us and its natural wonders.
