    Qabalah, Tree of Life, Sacred Geometry 1-10 - Sacred Geometry & Sephiroth


    I'm reading a beginners book on the Principles of Qabalah by Amber Jayanti.

    In it is discussed the basics of Sacred Geometry associated with the 10 sephiroth of the tree of life.



    One: Geometrically, one is symbolized by the point or dot. One is the mystic centre, the indivisible point of no dimension, the point of emanation and supreme power. This number is equated with spiritual unity or oneness - the common thread that runs between everything in the manifest world. Number one is further linked with light. All this certainly describes many qualities of the first sephirah, the Crown.

    Two: Geometrically , two is symbolized by the two points or dots, two liines or an anble. The one-dimensional line signifies the passage of time, the line which progresses forward from its point of origination. Number two symbolizes the ideas of duality and reflection as well as those of the echo, shadow, and the momentary stillness that occurs when two forces are in balance. Much like activities of the second sephirah, Wisdom, two is regarded as a reflection of the immortal and a step forward in the process of physical manifestation.

    Three: Geometrically, three is symbolized by three points or dots and the two-dimensional triangle. It is the ternary or what consists of three. Three suggests the trinity, triple goddess (birth, life and death), and the formula for creation and synthesis. This number also stands for the resolution to the conflict posed by duality, because three is considered the product of the action of unity upon duality, as it is in the activities of the third sephirah, Understanding.

    Four: Geometrically, four is symbolized by four points or dots, the square (a flat four-sided figure), and the cross representing the four points of the compass, elements and seasons of nature. The cross signifies the descent of spirit into matter, and ascent of matter into spirit, as does the fourth sephirah, Mercy. To Pythagoreans, four is the quaternary, what consists of four. This number represents stability, the earth and its inhabitants, rational organization, tangible effects and what is three dimensional.




    Five: Geometrically, five is symbolized by five points or dots, the pentagram ( a flat five-sided figure) or five-pointed star, a symbol that has long been attributed to the human race - the points are our head and four limbs. Because the number five falls in the middle of the sequence of single-digit numbers one through nine, five suggests how each human being serves as a mediator between the material and spiritual worlds. Five is also linked with the fives senses, through which we may learn to perceive the spirit in the world around us. It is the number of higher truth and the voice of our conscience or intuition. LIke the principles of the fifth sephirah, Severity, five shows that although living truthfully may be difficult in the short run, it is no nearly as severe as the effects or repercussions of failing to abide by truth.



    Six: Geometrically, six is symbolized by six points or dots, the hexagram (a flat six-sided figure or two interlacing triangle). The hexagram is composed of two triangles that signify the mystical union of fire and water and the sacred marriage of the masculine and feminine principles. This number further corresponds to the six directions of space and the cessation of movement or stillness at a central point. Like the sixth sephirah, Beauty, six is equated with equilibrium, inner peace, love and harmony.



    Seven:
    Geometrically, seven is symbolized by seven points or dots, the heptagon (a flat seven-sided figure). Because the seven-pointed star is made by combining the triangle or ternary and the square or quaternary, it suggests the alignment of heaven and earth. Seven refers to the basic series of musical notes, the seven colours of the rainbow, the first seven planets which correspond to the seven chakras, and the seven sins and seven virtues, which are linked with what we desire. This number also indicates a finished cycle, end of time period, fulfillment, celebration, and a victorious conclusion. The name of the seventh sephirah is Victory. Victory is associated with our desires and passions and how their fulfillment serves to elevate our consciousness.

    Eight: Geometrically, eight is symbolized by eight points or dots, an octagon (aflat eight-sided figure comprised of two interlacing squares), and the Pythagorean octonary. This number and the actual shape of the number itself, is often equated with interdependence and interconnection and the Principle of Correspondence: "As above, so below', and vice versa. Eight further suggests the eternally spiralling movement of the heavens, order and the power that the human intelligence may exert over itself and matter. It is aligned with the eight sephirah, Splendour, linked with the human body.

    Nine: Geometrically, nine is symbolized by nine points or dots, the triangle of the ternary or the triplication of the triple (three three-sided and flat interlacing triangles). Nine is a number of assimilation, separate elements combined to create a whole, and completion, as it is the end of the numerical series before its return to unity or transformation into a new form. Paired with the ninth sephira, Foundation, nine stands for the assimilation of our life experiences which enables our thoughts, words and deeds to be automatically based upon higher truth and universal principles.



    Ten: Geometrically, ten is symbolized by ten points or dots or the decad, a decagon ( a flat ten-sided figure that may be comprised of two interlacting pentagrams), a triangle comprised of ten points and the tetrad. This number is also depicted by the ten-sided double cube. Ten signifies spiritual and physical achievent (which may be seen as on and the same) and new beginnings. Ten is equated with the spiritual world brouth into manifest form, as is the tenth sephirah, Kingdom. Finally, from the most ancient times ten has been used to symbolize perfection as it reduces (1+0=1) back to the number one, or the One.

    this from another post of you celtaur,is related
    "In sacred Geometry the number 7 is pivotal, as it represents the fullness, completion of those of the same surrounding the center. ie. 1 circle in the centre surrounded by 6 equally sized circles - there is no other number that can do this but the total of 7."
