This image depicts a Cosmic Temple that I have constructed on the Astral Plane. The internal structure of the temple (not visible in this image) is a sort of “memory theater,” which represents in spatial form the internal logic of traditional astrology.
The ground floor of the temple has a square floorplan and contains
the Mundane Houses of astrology. Above this is a cylindrical tower with
one level for each of the seven Astrological Planets (so there is a
Moon Chapel, a Sun Chapel, etc.); these levels are not visible from the
outside. The hemispherical dome corrsponds to the Zodiac, and
around its periphery are Chambers for each of the Signs. Within the
Tower a stairwell descends from each Sign’s Chamber to the Chapel of
its Ruling Planet directly below it. For example, the Leo Chamber
descends to the Sun Chapel. (Except for the Sun and Moon, each Planet
rules two Signs, and so the Chapel for each of these Planets has a Male
Wing and a Female Wing corresponding to its two Signs.) Twelve smaller
turrets surround Planetary Tower, and each contains a spiral staircase
connecting a Zodiacal Chamber to the corresponding House in the Natural
Zodiac. That is, the Aries Chamber is connected to the First House, the
Taurus Chamber to the Second House, etc. There is a round hole in the
center of the Zodiacal Dome (as in the Pantheon), which descends down
through the center of the Temple. The Cosmic Axis passes through it
(visible at the top of the Dome).
