Which Sign Would Love The Stone House?

Filed in Zodiac Fashion

famous sacred stone house Portugal

This is the renowned (in some circles) Stone House in Portugal.

Inspired by The Flintstones  & built between two gigantic (sacred?) rocks that were already sitting on the mountain, it is apparently ultra luxurious inside, despired the remote location and all.

I’m not so sure about it, luxe or not.

Feng-Shui-wise, that is a fuq of a lot of “Earth” and it looks like it is squeezing the house together, like it is in a vice.

FYI: They say that in Feng Shui (and acupuncture, as Feng Shui IS just acupuncture in space) that you need a harmonious balance of the Five Elements: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.  Stone = Earth.

But if those massive rocks are like sacred Geomancy conductors at the apex of ley lines, this could be quite spesh.

WHY do so many scribes discount magic in their reportage?

Other than that, i think if i lived here it would awaken cheesy Celt fantasies. I wouldn’t want to be in there pretending to make paella and talking about whether or not the I.M.F. is any better at predicting the economy than weather bureaus are at seasons.

I’d want Aragorn or someone to be galloping in.

And you?

I dunno, I think its fabulous. I would live there. Looks like it’d be comfy. 🙂

Crab sun, Leo moon, Aries rising

I LOVE IT I am now planning a trip to spain just to see it. I have Taurus rising but am an Aries, and Crab moon. hmmm I mostly have piscean everything and saturn in virgo. not sure if this can be put down to astro, or an extreme love of architecture, stone age everything and LOTR. speaking of weird architectures I love this tree house hotel in sweden. something for everyone there, except extreme ground hugging taureans. and what about Alain De Botton’s new venture for architecture of happiness where you can stay in deluxe gorge architecturally designed weekend… Read more »

I looked at it and immediately thought… a hobbit.. that’s who…!!

Then I read what you wrote MM and you mention Aragorn.. and if he would actually come riding up to stay for a while then I think indeed I might love it also!!

I would say aqua sun with cap moon or venus….. because it’s weird for te aqua and has an old slow earthy feeling, which would ground the aqua and provide security for the cap!

Argh, yes the detritus and squalor inside is so disappointing, but I think the basics are there for a hefty Virgo-ing, tidy, fit out, beautify etc and I would still think it heavenly. But yeah – kick out the nasty slobby hobbit squatters.

Eh – seeing the inside spoils it all for me. Didn’t realise it was so small, and it really looks like one of those huts that hikers use to crash in for the night. Not what I expected at all – too dark and dank for me to sleep in.

No way would I live there, even if Viggo Mortensen would come striding in after a long day of orc slaying. I do love solitude, but more of the Bjork’s plutonic house.… Read more »

Yurk. MUCH prefer straw bale:

But that’s my Saggie side coming out 🙂 🙂

This stone house is too squishy. And Aragorn would be sleeping in a rough hut made of leaves and branches – I think he’d feel squished in a house like this.

Am off to look for pictures of the inside. Its horrible, but intriguing….

Have you ever actually smelled hay bales?

Domestic Triffid
Domestic Triffid

At the risk of letting my Virgo rising off the leash here – its straw bales, not hay bales. Hay is for feeding cattle – its summer grasses left to dry; whereas straw is the stalk left after cutting down wheat, corn, barley, oats etc

*stuffs Inner Virgo back into box*

….and yes, I have smelt both – I used to do a lot of riding when I was younger 😀

Don’t you like the smell ?

I have to say, I love it because of Celtic fantasies….MM you always ‘get’ it. Stone circles, sacred stones, sacred wells, a vast uninhabited heath (a la Thomas Hardy and Emily Bronte), etc – I’m there.

I am Sagg Sun, Cap moon, Aqua rising and have Celtic heritage and have walked miles through Celtic country to encounter neolithic sacred sites.

But seriously, many property developers could learn from this – build with respect of the natural landscape and the culturally sacred, people!

Gorgeous picture MM. Thank you.

I like it but how the hell do they heat it? And I’d like wider windows for the views, please, and maybe some skylights. Cool if you’re a rock climber. And they’ve saved scads on building materials, wall coverings etc.

Maybe I could find a caveman to share it with.

If it were 15 mins from a convenience store I would so live there.
Failing that, I’d make it my writing / composing retreat. Pop off to the rock cottage to whip up a novella or sonata or two.
Completely love love love it.

If I was going to build a house incorporating those massive boulders I wouldn’t want it to look like a cottage that accidentally got squished in the middle. Why not go all the way and have something like giant rounded river stone wedged in the pile – or maybe even perched on top. I’d give living in it a go – would love to touch those rocks – imagine basking on them like a lizard for a moment at least. I think it’s easy to call all “big stuff” in nature sacred – it’s just the wonder of it’s size,… Read more »

I’m a Libran and love rocks, crystals, any stones, you name it, they natter to me. But that it awful, disrespectful of the two stones either side, no wonder they’d like to crush the house between them. And query? If these were sacred stones, did the builder of the house ask these stones if they want a house shoved between them? Ego, ego, ego.

=) It’s so true. People want to live on mountains and rocks but they don’t realize the rocks are not some sterile place without life. Whole ecosystems complete with lichen that break down rocks, birds that live in holes in the rocks ,centipedes, and you name it live in and on the rock too.

And can you imagine the d00shbags waking you up at 5 am to go climb on your rocks as a sport?

I’m a kataka and I wouldn’t go near it… one shouldn’t mess with (or build one’s house on top of) sacred places. They can be enjoyed without fucking with, and are meant to be visited at times- not lived on. plus the claustro vibe. I’m all for nook/ womblike little houses but this one isn’t it…

To earthen me (virgo sun/cap rising/toro moon) it is too cold, too hard, too exposed.

I kind of love it, deffo taps into all my wild woman fantasies. In reality though it’s very wonky and un-symmetrical and that would upset all my Libra too much. Plus I live in a house made from granite blocks 4 foot thick and it’s a nightmare. If I could I’d go for wood, much warmer and far more soothing for living.

Agree … claustrophobic … and with all that space around.

And can’t see the point of a stone mountain hideaway if it attracts thousands of tourists a year.

He sounds beautiful, his astro sounds super easy to get along with for me (my hub is Gem with kataka moon) and a very versatile, curious and loving personality for sure.

The Virgo ex would like this abode – to visit, or look at.

He’d see it far in the hills and refuse.

Why? cause it looks like a growth.

Virgo ex had phobia’s to eyes on potatoes (turn and scream for help), barnacles on whales. Total decay / rot / growth features.
