Sir George Trevelyan, the original and well-loved British explorer of the Mysteries, and White Knight of the New Age, once defined sacred sites as places where cosmic and telluric (earth) forces meet, forming a vortex of energy. These vortices create force fields which extend over the surrounding countryside affecting the subtle bodies of all who live within them.

The field of influence extending from Glastonbury, the Vale (veil?) of Avalon in south west England, has come to be known by many as the Glastonbury Zodiac. According to Katherine Maltwood who 'discovered' it in 1935 and called it the 'Temple of the Stars', it is an area in which the twelve astrological symbols or signs are delineated by natural land formations such as streams, tracks and field boundaries.

Although the land figures are almost impossible to verify with the eye, (they were, in fact, first identified from the air) nevertheless they do represent a conceptual reality for many of the Glastonbury residents. Living within the 'zodiac' can bring a certain edge, a 'pokiness' to life, a sense of deeper connection to the metaphysical. A similar rarified field of energy can be experienced around the hilltop village of Rennes le Chateau in south west France, which has been perceived by many 'sensitives' as a 'land temple' 17kms in diameter. Table Mountain in South Africa, Mount Shasta in the U.S. and Mount Warning in Australia are amongst the other poweful examples.
