Circle & Spirals In Sacred Geometry
Sacred Geometry is a timeless study of the symbolic and spiritual meanings of various geometric shapes and forms. This study can be applied to numbers, patterns, shapes, and lines that can be seen in natural and constructed forms throughout the world. It is scientifically proven that there is a mathematical order to the universe and here we explore the meaning of two forms:
First, let’s start with the most common shape in our environment which is the circle. A circle can be seen everywhere in our world, from fruits to the planets, to the shapes of atoms. A circle has no beginning or end, which lets them be the symbolic representation of infinity. Since the line is in a never-ending loop, it is also speaking of the divine motion and orchestration of how energy moves through cycles but exists in the same quantity.
The circle is also a demonstration of the value of pi, which is a number that goes on forever without repetition. With the circle meeting in a loop, it represents one whole unit which allows the circle to be a representation of oneness and unity.
Then we have the spiral. If we observe the form, we will understand that the line is growing outward in space, which brings us to its meaning of expansion. In a spiral, the growth and manifestation of expansion are done in the perfect ratio under the phrase “as above, as below”. Here we find the Fibonacci sequence which is also known as the golden ratio, which can also be found in a snail’s shell, in human DNA, to the alignment of how planets revolve in outer space.
In this ratio, the sequence of numbers allows for every number to be a sum of the previous numbers. The spiral then holds the key to how energy expands and how it is interconnected whether it is growing bigger or smaller.
