As usual I’m starting with a flower of life pattern underlay. From that comes Metatron’s cube from which all geometries can be constructed. The intersecting triangles which form the Star of David pattern contain the basic four alchemical symbols for the elements and are also the divine intersection of masculine and feminine. The compass and ruler working together are also a marriage of the masculine and feminine energies. If the parallel angled lines of the star are extended out we get the letter “X”. If we contain the edges of the circles into concentric circles within, we get the letter “O”. These letters are also commonly associated with love and sex. Perhaps this is why?
