oooohhhh! A sigil. Opposing forces uniting into one. Am I right?

It was something that came to me in a vision.

My instinct told me it is a sigil of some sort, although so far I have been unable to interpret it, aside from two ideas.

Your interpretation is very nice. :)

The two I've thought of so far are:

An Alchemical Androgyne


A combination of the words, "I, Me and We".

Sounds right to me. I would say that the lower downward facing part of the sigil is the most emphasised. Heaven and earth. Maybe the earthly part of you is more emphasised than the heavenly and that's why it's larger at the bottom and the total sigil isn't symmetrical.

Imbalance attempting to compensate itself. A work in progress. Or maybe I am just way off. Seems simple enough.

I admit I was a bit concerned about the lower region being larger than the upper.

If such as you said is indicative of what the sigil stands for, it follows along with what I've already imagined - that I have more work to do.

I didn't know Set was spelled another way. I was inspired to read more about the Horus/Set conflict on Wikipedia and then I remembered a small part of the story that my friend Paul told about, where Osiris' genitals were eaten by a fish.

The next audio book I'm going to listen to is about mythology from all around the world. It seems they symbolize many different things, just like the Horus/Set conflict, for example, in which both natural world phenomena can be explained mythologically or even such philosophical or esoteric subjects as the death or destruction of ego to bring about a type of rebirth.

The more I learn, the more I see a blending together of religion, philosophy, alchemy, mythology, psychology, etc... even science! We all know why, too!

How do we know said...

this is an Indian religious symbol twice over.. its called The Trishul - its the weapon of choice of the Lord Shiva.. the Trishul (literally, the three arrows) is an instrument of justice and reverence. Maybe this piece of information will help.

A lot like Neptune's Trident!

The union of Heaven and Earth Why the lower region is greater than the upper region is because the Kingdom of Heaven is the Path least walked and few and far between are those whom have overcome the restaint's of this world.

Here's a scriptural representation of the symbol -

Matthew 7:13-14Enter ye in at the strait gate, ( Symbolize's Lower Portion ) for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat. Because ( Symbolize's Upper Portion )strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto me, and few there be that find it.
