Fruit of Life

12_Fruit of Life - Throat

The clockwork nature of time is held in the throat chakra. This story is revealed in the geometry of the fruit of life matrix by adding two rings of 18 and 24 circles to the flower of life.

The first ring of 18 circles represents an 18-year Saros cycle, when the Sun, Moon and Earth return to the same relative location to repeat a solar or lunar eclipse. This cycle helped ancient astronomers predict the time and location of the Sun and Moon as they began to measure time and space. A Sar is the 9-year period between a lunar and solar eclipse.

The second ring of 24 circles represents the 24-hours in “one-day”, or one rotation of earth on its axis. A day is defined by 2, 12-hour periods: AM (ante meridiem/after midnight) and PM (post meridiem/after noon).

By adding two rings of 18 and 24 circles to the 19 circles in the flower of life, a total of 60 interlocking circles now surrounds the central “one”. This represents 60-minutes in “one-hour” and 60-seconds in “one-minute”.

The actual fruit of life pattern is revealed by focusing on the 13-independent circles within the 61 total circles. These 13 circles represent a 13-week cycle, which equates to the length of the four seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Four 13-week seasons equal a 52-week year.

This story of time held within the fruit of life inspired the creation of calendars and clocks, which brought order into everyday life. As farming communities grew, temple towns were created and the nature of time became a secret that was held by temple priests and priestess. Calendars and time became tools that were used to maintain order. As patriarchy grew, men associated themselves with the solar world of the sun, as “keepers of the seed”. Women were associated with the lunar world of the moon, as “keepers of the mystery”.

Time is relative to how we perceive it. Some see it as an illusion, or as a mathematical construct. Others believe it to be proof of divine order. In reality time is timeless. Earth spins on its axis as it orbits the Sun every 365.25 days. The Moon is revealed by the Sun as it orbits the Earth every 29.5 days. Earth’s tilted axis determines the exact days when the seasons begin and end.

Message: It is time to rethink and reset as we prepare for change. Become aware of our surroundings and identify what needs to shift in order to move forward. We are encouraged to share our stories with others as we shift into this new reality.
