Elements and Directions
In the beginning, before the beginning, the Goddess desired and whispered her wish. The breath of the Goddess fueled the tiny spark of desire and the tiny spark became a roaring flame. As the flame grew the breath of the Goddess grew into a great wind of thought. The Goddess saw all that had manifested from her tiny spark of desire and cried great tears of joy. The ashes from the raging inferno of thought and desire fell into the great sea of tears and they became clay. Unbeknownst to the Goddess, from the clay the God emerged.
The God wished to pursue and in the wishing desired to know his bearings within the blackness of the great void. He gazed in the direction of the great flame of his beginning and saw it shining. He spoke. “Shining of the great flame of the beginning, I name you so my children may call upon you for guidance. I name you Aust.”
He gazed in the opposite direction of the great flame and felt the wind fueling the great flame. He saw that the light of the great flame barely reached the home of the wind and it was not dark but it was not light either. It was betwixt. He saw that the great wind could be the end of the flame if it so chose. He saw that in the betwixt the wind could fuel the flame if it so chose. He saw that in the betwixt there was magic. He spoke. “Betwixt home of the wind, I name you so my children may call upon you for guidance. I name you Vestr.”
He looked down and saw a blinding light as the shining of the flame reflected off a great sea, protecting–hiding all beneath it. He saw that the water concentrated the light from the Aust and nourished the seeds protected and hidden in the land below its surface. And there was growth. And he saw the winds of Vestr blow across the great sea to fuel the flame of the Aust. And in the wind of Vestr, the growth became strong. He spoke. “Great sea that turns the flame of Aust and the winds of Vestr into strong growth, I name you so my children may call upon you for guidance. I name you Suðr.”
He looked up and saw that a mound of earth emerged out of the hiding of the great sea. No light from the flame, nor its reflection could reach the top of the mound. The God saw that without the light of the flame it was cold and dark. But upon the cold dark ground lay an abundant harvest. What started from the seeds born of the flame of desire, had grown in the protective water of the great sea of Suðr, and had matured to sweet ripeness in the fading light of the wind of Vestr. And he saw that by doing nothing, which he was not accustomed, the seeds from the harvest found their way into the fertile ground. He spoke. “Cold, frozen tundra, keeper of the harvest and the do-nothing time, I name you so my children may call upon you for guidance. I name you Norðr”.
And so it was that the four sacred elements came to be also the four sacred directions. Forever entwined, forever inseparable.
Urania’s code holds the balance that is the Way of the Goddess in the divine dodecagram. The dodecagram reduces to three, and three is a magic number. Three holds all that there is and all that we need to know. It is representative of and a constant reminder of our origins. One is the Goddess, two is the God, and three is the well of souls born of their union. Three is the zero-point field, the force, all that ever was and all that ever will be, the field that all consciousness is born into and originates from.
- The dodecagram is made of four triangles, that represent the four sacred elements–fire, water, air, and earth.
- The dodecagram is two hexagrams intertwined.
- One hexagram consists of Fire and Air.
- The other hexagram consists of Earth and Water.
- The four intersecting triangles result in 12 points placed exactly 360 degrees apart to form a perfect circle.
- The three points of each triangle points to a direction.
- The first point of each triangle points to a cardinal direction.
- The second point of each triangle points to a primary intercardinal direction.
- The third point of each triangle points to a secondary intercardinal direction.
Your desire to be, born of the emptiness of the Goddess has propelled you onto the path of a great journey. As with most great journey’s, so to will this journey require a certain amount of specialized gear and equipment. To acquire these all that is needed is your own awareness of them. The six axes lie exactly 30 degrees apart and when combined, make up the circle of your unique resonance–a very specific, unique, aspect of the the One. Making the shape of a 36o degree circle, this equipment and gear is designed to be used together and to work together, one building upon the other. Each axis consists of a starting point and an ending point. The starting point represents what is needed by you as an individual and the ending point represents what is needed by you as part of the collective. The starting points generally fall into the bottom half of the circle and the ending points generally fall into the top half of the circle. Within the circle, each point of the axis is at opposites ends to one another. Therefore, what we need as individuals is at opposition to what we need as a part of the collective. The Way of the Goddess is to achieve balance between the two oppositions and live within the center of the circle. The gear you need is:
- Power Source
- Communication & Navigation System
- Security System
- Emulation System
