Snagging a Vesica Piscis


In my quest to find spring blossoms set against something that shows them off well, I inadvertantly caught a Vesica Piscis .

The Vesica Piscis is an ancient symbol, and an element in sacred geometry. It is formed by the overlapping of two circles so that the center of each circle lies on the circumference of the other. This evidently establishes the exact mathematical coordinates needed to create any geometical shape. I'll just take their word for it.

I bumped into the Vesica Piscis last month in Providence, since Christine Page , whose conference I attended (see April archives) is very keen on it. She has a lovely meditation on her CD "Webs of Peace" called "Creating the Vesica Piscis".

Although the evangelical Christians are pasting this symbol onto their bumpers big time, so that they can recognize one anther on the road without honking, there are a number of hystercal variations that have developed in response. Be sure to scroll up and down if you click on this.

Thus ends another pseudo spiritual entry, providing a refreshing balance to my recent pseudo intellectual ones.
