Sacred Geometry symbols

Sacred Geometry symbols - Sacred Geometry meanings

Sacred Geometry symbols may have its roots in Ancient Greece, or even further back. It describes the belief that God, when creating the universe and everything in it, used a consistent kind of geometry or repeating regular shapes as the building blocks for existence.
Sacred Geometry, therefore, places meaning in geometric shapes, ratios and proportions. It ascribes to them a holy significance.
The shapes and ratios of Sacred Geometry can be found in the study of nature. Common examples include the nautilus shell, which forms a logarithmic spiral, and the regular hexagonal shapes found in beehives. Similar geometric ratios can be found in the human body, as evidenced in Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous Vitruvian Man sketching.
In Medieval Europe, churches and religious buildings were designed and constructed in keeping with the shapes and ratios believed to be divinely inspired. Much art of the period also made use of Sacred Geometry’s holy ratios and proportions. This was thought to bring the worshiper closer to God.
Sacred Geometry can also be found in Hindu teachings and many Hindu temples are laid out in accordance with geometric rules thought to have religious connotation. Islamic scriptures and holy sites also make significant use of geometric patterns.
The European Renaissance was when the principles of Sacred Geometry came to the fore, with a treatise written by Leon Battista Alberti, describing an idealized church building designed through use of Sacred Geometry. Modern-day visitors to Rome, in Italy, can see many examples of Sacred Geometry in the churches and temples from this period.

Icosahedron Sacred Geometry symbol

Icosahedron

The Icosahedron is one of the five Platonic solids. Platonic solids are each made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. Only five such shapes exist and are considered, in Sacred Geometry, to be geometrical ideals. The icosahedron represents water.

Dodecahedron Sacred Geometry symbol

Dodecahedron

The Dodecahedron is one of the five Platonic solids. Platonic solids are each made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. Only five such shapes exist and are considered, in Sacred Geometry, to be geometrical ideals. The dodecahedron represents spirit, or aether.

Octahedron Sacred Geometry symbol

Octahedron

The Octahedron is one of the five Platonic solids. Platonic solids are each made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. Only five such shapes exist and are considered, in Sacred Geometry, to be geometrical ideals. The octahedron represents air.

Cube Sacred Geometry symbol

Cube

The Cube is one of the five Platonic solids. Platonic solids are each made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. Only five such shapes exist and are considered, in Sacred Geometry, to be geometrical ideals. The cube represents earth.

Tetrahedron Sacred Geometry symbol

Tetrahedron

The Tetrahedron is one of the five Platonic solids. Platonic solids are each made from the same equilateral, equiangular polygons. Only five such shapes exist and are considered, in Sacred Geometry, to be geometrical ideals. The tetrahedron represents fire.

Perfect Right Triangles Sacred Geometry symbol

Perfect Right Triangles

Perfect right triangles are right-angled triangles in which the proportions of the lengths of the three sides are whole numbers. For example, 3/4/5, 5/12/13 and 7/24/25 triangles are examples of right triangles. These symbols can be found as far back as Ancient Egypt, engraved on walls inside the Great Pyramids.

5 Pointed Star - Golden Ratio Sacred Geometry symbols

5 Pointed Star – Golden Ratio

The Golden Ratio is a mathematical formula defining proportions that can be expressed as “the small is to the large as the large is to the whole.” It is found in art, music, nature, and even in sections of our own bodies.

Stellations of the Platonic and Archimedean Solids Sacred Geometry

Stellations of the Platonic and Archimedean Solids

The symbol depicts a stellation (extended polygon) of a dodecahedron, in which each face is a pentagon that is then topped by a pyramid composed of five golden triangles. The result is to create a shape that resembles a three-dimensional five-pointed star.

Fractals and Recursive Geometries Sacred Geometry symbols

Fractals and Recursive Geometries

Fractals are shapes made using a consistent ratio to create a repetitive pattern that can be scaled from the extremely small to extremely large. In the context of Sacred Geometry, fractals are said to be a “fraction” of the whole – the building blocks from which atoms and universes are formed.

The Moonflower Sacred Geometry symbol

The Moonflower

The Moonflower depicts the eponymous flower placed within a triangle surmounting a square. Within the geometrical lines of the symbol and the petals of the flower, a star shape is discernible.

The Syringa Bush Sacred Geometry symbol

The Syringa Bush

The Syringa Bush depicts the eponymous bush placed within a square. It represents the universal importance of the number four within Sacred Geometry. The number four is considered the root of all things in existence, and the source of everything in nature.

The Lily Sacred Geometry symbol

The Lily

The Lily symbol depicts the eponymous flower placed within a triangle, with its petals reaching outwards towards three points. Another triangle sits at an angle to this, and is attended by three smaller petals.

The Daisy

The Daisy symbol depicts the eponymous flower placed within a circle, with each of its petals of equal size and radiating from a central point. It represents the sun and its life-giving force.

Metatron’s Cube Sacred Geometry symbol

Metatron’s Cube

The Metatron’s Cube symbol takes as its base the Fruit of Life symbol and connects the center of every circle from which it is composed to the center of every other circle. Within this symbol can be found the five platonic solids. The Metatron’s Cube symbol is said to protect against evil spirits.
