Maya codex, long shrouded in controversy, proves genuine





The Grolier Codex, an ancient document that is among the rarest books in the world, has been regarded with skepticism since it was reportedly unearthed by looters from a cave in Chiapas, Mexico, in the 1960s. But a meticulous new study of the codex has yielded a startling conclusion: The codex is both genuine and likely the most ancient of all surviving manuscripts from ancient America. The study, Houston said, “is a confirmation that the manuscript, counter to some claims, is quite real. The manuscript was sitting unremarked in a basement of the National Museum in Mexico City, and its history is cloaked in great drama.  Sept.7 http://news.brown.edu/articles/2016/09/mayacodex





The worldview underlying astrology sees all of reality as symbolic in nature. To the symbolist, the heavenly bodies are threads within a great tapestry of affinities and correspondences. Thus even when an article is published, the symbolist can find important clues connecting the contents of the article with the planetary configurations at that time.  The article on the  codex that was lying unrecognized in the basement of the National Museum in Mexico City was published on Sept.7 just two days before the first quarter Moon. A chart for the Moon phase at Mexico City has the Saturn-Neptune square prominently placed on the horizon axis. As in  previous posts [1][2][3] here too the square continues to be about knowing the difference between fact and fiction.
