Post The symbolism of the circle

Since the dawn of humanity, we have been obsessed with circles and their embedded symbolism. When we look at ancient sites we find that many of them have been designed in a circular fashion such a stone-henge and Gobekli Tepe. There is something esoteric and mystical about the circle as if it fulfils our basic primal need for symbolism. Planets are spherical in nature and this reflects the basic premise that god is a symbol of one-ness and replicated the universe in his image. The circle thus may be seen as a symbol for god symbolizing an unbroken continuity that is representative of the eternity of the higher-consciousness.





Renaissance Magic


In renaissance magic and other forms of ancient magic, the magic circle was an integral part of ritual. The magician would place himself within the circle, which would often be embedded with a variety of phrases, in Hebrew mostly, and it would protect him from whatever spirits he would be conjuring. In the Lesser Key of Solomon, a variety of magic circles are listed, which can be drawn in chalk and serve to protect the magician.

The Circle in Religion
In Christianity, the circle is found in the rings that lovers will exchange during the psycho-spiritual ceremony of marriage, which symbolize the infinite nature of their love that remains unbroken but also halos. The halo is a symbol of the divine aura that cloaks those that have witnessed the divine nature of the cosmos. They are circular and appeal to our primal obsession with circles. In Buddhism, we also find the mandala. The mandala, in Jungian terms reflects the centre of the cosmos as well as the fundamental spiritual core of man. As we develop ourselves and our sense of inner perfect, we approach the centre of the mandala. Shiva in Hinduism represents the duality of creation and destruction and thus the birth of life through opposites. This god is often represented within a circle. This circle represents the circular nature of the universe and time- death-rebirth, creation-destruction, love-hate, spring-winter- the eternal dance of the cosmos.



The symbol of the Ouroboros is also highly prominent within mystical literature and is circular appealing to our primordial desire for unity and continuity. The Ouroboros is the symbol of the snake eating its own tail. It was found within Egypt and then moved to Greece. It then during the Middle Ages became central to the illustrative literature of Alchemy in which it symbolized the ever-changing state of reality in which the beginning of one phenomenon marked the end of another. The snake-eating its own tail is also a symbol of the kundalini energy, the life-force at the bottom of the spine that awakes man to the universal consciousness and sparks the pineal gland. August Kekule apparently discovered the chemical formula for benzene when he had a dream of an Ouroboros. For Jung, the circle is a symbol of our need for unity. It is an archetypal symbol that resides in the collective consciousness of humanity and reflects the ever-changing state of the cosmos as life gives birth to death and death gives birth to life. It is the conscious mind and the unconscious working in perfect harmony. The archetypal need for circular symbolism can also be found in this ancient artefact of platonic beauty-





I hope you enjoyed the essay I wrote and found it useful.

Triangles and squares also feature highly
It's all to do with their properties
Circle = continuous
Square = equality
Triangle = strengh
Roughly speaking

You can look further into it but that's an exorcise in looking at the creators mindset and social conditions of the time .

Elaborate symmetrical designs were a symbol of knowledge and ability

Yes this is very true, such shapes feature a lot, especially in music videos and other forms of entertainment. It is interesting you say such a thing about looking into the creator's mind-set because apparently the Freemason's are extremely obsessed with mathematics and they believe that by understanding the mathematics of the universe they are somehow gaining an insight into the creator, which they believe is similar to a mathematician of an architect. The 'G' thus could stand for 'God' or 'Geometry' symbolizing the sacred geometry of the universe. I think Einstein said something similar and believed God not to be of a supernatural nature but a metaphor for the mathematical harmony found within the universe. William Blake also did a painting in which he represented god as an architect plotting out the universe in a mathematical way.



The triangle I suppose can be reduced to the trinity, which is a symbol of the three-fold self. The triangle represents the mother, the father and their children. The three sides of a triangle represent life and matter being born out of the unification of opposites. In renaissance magic, when the occult practioner, the magic mirror in which he see spirits will be placed in a triangle so that he is protected. The triangle represents the male principle, female and the result that entails. Thus the triangle is a symbol of duality and thus by incorporating the triangle, the spirit that is conjured is trapped in the world of duality over which the magician has control.



Since the triangle is symbolic of the unification of opposites and the life that is born as a result, the triangle may also refer to the right-brain and the left-brain working in harmony with one another and the result of the opposing natures of the brain creating a psychic harmony and the third side of the triangle representing the consequence of such unification. The triangle also represents the magic of the number three. There are apparently THREE composites of man- mind, body soul. There are three attributes to god- omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence. The three-wise men represent the orion constellation and are in a trinity. For the Egyptians, three was the number of the cosmos. There are apparently three types of matter- vegetable, mineral and animal. And all nursery rhymes, which all contain archetypal Jungian symbolism, seem to always contain the magic three- 3 blind mice, 3 little pigs, goldy locks and the 3 bears and so on.
