Zodiac: Metatron's Cube
This was a very powerful piece to create and came through very quickly. Bar having the initial intention to work within the sacred geometry of Metatron's Cube, the star tetrahedon then emerged as did the twelve Zodiac circles.
Metatron's Cube is birthed from the Flower of Life pattern. From this initial pattern, thirteen circles are pulled out. Thirteen represents the thirteen moons of the year, the feminine. There are thirteen weeks in a season and so on. You then join the centre of each of these circles with the the centre of all the others by drawing straight lines, representing the masculine energy as you can see in the drawing above. These energies are not gender specific, but are contained with in all of us and ideally should be in balance as much as possible.
From the completed Metatron's Cube it is then possible to pull through the five Platonic Solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron or icosahedron. These solids describe and symbolize the five elements or states of matter of earth, water, fire, air and aether/spirit.
- Earth = cube
- Air = octahedron
- Water = icosahedron
- Fire = tetrahedron
- Aether = dodecahedron
These shapes regularly occur in nature and ancient cultures and peoples often built their monuments or sites of worship, with these shapes.
This is a powerful geometry to meditate upon!
