12. Fruit of Life – Throat Chakra – Sacred Geometry
The Fruit of Life is the culmination of growth that provides the “gift or fruit” born through sacred order. This sense of order was defined by human observation of the cosmos. Its core is the central, unifying “one”, the sun as the Container of Life. It holds the Seed of Life representing the six planets in our solar system and the Flower of Life that symbolizes the twelve aspects of the Zodiac seen in the stars. Together they represent cosmic order from which the Fruit of Life is born.
Two “rounds” of 18 and 24 circles are added onto the Flower of Life to form an interlocking symbol of sixty-one total circles that creates the Fruit of Life.
The first “round” of 18 circles represents a Saros, which is an 18-year, lunar or solar, eclipse cycle. Lunar and solar eclipses mirror each other every nine years in the exact location, this is called a Sar or half of a Saros. By adding these 18 circles to the 19 circles in the Flower of Life a total of 37 circles appear. When combined, the central circle becomes the “central one,” therefore 36 circles revolve around the central “Sun”. The 36 weeks in a solar year equates to nine months, the approximate time for human life to gestate. The “Sun” can now be seen as the “Child”.
The second round of 24 circles represents a 24-hour day. When you combine both rounds with the flower of life you have 60 total circles (1)+(6+12+18+24=60) rotating around the central “one” represents the 60 minutes in one hour or 60 seconds within one minute. The actual “Fruit of Life” pattern is revealed in the 13 independent circles. These 13 circles represent each of the four seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter) within a 52-week solar year (13 x 4 = 52), as well as the 13 moon cycles within a lunar year. The Fruit of Life is symbolic of the life-giving aspects of both the Sun and Moon.
The Fruit of Life honors the organizing principles of creation and the fruits of our labor. Many stories and prophecies have been inspired by the cosmic dance between the Sun, Moon and Earth. One of mankind’s greatest gifts was the creation of calendars and time, which brought order to agriculture.
