The Scorpio Connection

The Arecibo Observatory radio telescope in Puerto Rico is no longer operational. Last Tuesday, both the giant reflector dish and the dome collapsed. At the time of the accident the facility was closed due to damages to its cables that were already damaged.

“Battered for decades
by hurricanes, storms and
earthquakes, the cable breaks
were the latest blow to one of the
world’s most powerful radio telescopes.
It was closed for several months after
Hurricane Maria in 2017, according
to And earlier this year,
the telescope shut down in

January and part of February
because of a series of earthquakes
that hit Puerto Rico.”

Arecibo is the 57 year old observatory owned by the US National Science Foundation. It is best known for having transmitted a message called the Arecibo Message to the far reaches of the Milky Way in 1974. It was also used by NASA for Near-Earth Object detection. Parts of the facility are still functionable but the future of this scientific landmark is unclear at this time.

Normally Dayology examines the planetary energies of individuals, however the life purpose of animals, events and objects can be determined through their origination and departure dates too. Although Arecibo took years to design and construct, it began its mission on November 1st, 1963 (like a first breath) and it was decommissioned (like it’s last gasp) November 19, 2020. Both events occurred within the sign of Scorpio and throughout its existence Arecibo has carried on with Scorpio-like precision. It’s stretched out cables greatly resembled the intricate web of an archaeid reaching out into space to capture new information.

It should also be mentioned that Arecibo served as the setting for two well-known films, GoldenEye, a James Bond Thriller and Contact, a science fiction classic. There is insufficient data to identify anybody of a Scorpionic nature involved in the making of GoldenEye but as an Ian Fleming creation it certainly explored a number of Scorpio themes: Mystery, Suspicion, Duplicity, Seduction, and Retaliation. The film Contact is a different story. This uplifting adventure was taken from the book Contact written by Scorpio born Carl Sagan. And the two gifted Scorpio actors, Jodie Fostor and Matthew McConaughey, were cast as its leads.




The photos of these three Scorpio individuals capture the INNER hold of the Day Ray upon the OUTER expression of the Sun Sign. Matthew McConaughey is the clearest Scorpio because his Tuesday Day Ray is ruled by Mars which also governs Scorpio. He has no difficulty being as private or assertive as he cares to be. Jodie Foster’s Scorpio Sun is softened by her Monday Day Ray. Her photo presents a calm but thoroughly penetrating gaze. Carl Sagan’s Scorpio Sun Sign is challenged somewhat by his Friday Day Ray. Venus, the ruler of Friday tries to lift and inspire the assertive nature of Mars, the ruler of Scorpio. Throughout his life Sagan attempted to balance his cosmic intuition with scientific logic.

It makes perfect sense that Carl Sagan chose the Arecibo Observatory as the setting for his book Contact. He as a Scorpio, must have sensed that he and this remote location shared the same #68 FRI SCO Dayology Signature. And was it just a coincidence that two Scorpios, Jodie Fostor and Matthew McConaughey played the leads for this amazing sci-fi flick? We think not!

Astrologically Scorpio has always been considered a sign of great contrasts. As it was explained elsewhere on this blog, there are Two Different Scorpios. Sinners and saints might be a way of putting it. All or nothing is another. And one type of Scorpio can unexpectedly transform into the other. You never know which side of a Scorpio you are facing, but you can count on it being deep. Deeply degraded, deeply disturbed, deeply committed, or deeply inspired. Even Arecibo worked beautifully probing the depths of space for the advancement of science until it collapsed and could no longer withstand the extremes of it’s surroundings. Then it was no more.
