The Triangle

Pin It

The Triangle – A beautiful and simple shape associated with the number three.  Did you know that if it is pointed up, it represents male energy, and pointed down it represents female energy…


According to ancient beliefs, an upright equilateral triangle, with one point at the top and two at the base, is a male and solar symbol representing spirit, divinity, fire, life, prosperity and harmony. In contrast, the reversed triangle is female and lunar, representing mother earth, water, rain and grace.

In Christianity and Judaism, a triangle is often used as a symbol for God and the holy trinity, and in magic it was seen as representing the element fire (with a downward meaning water). When upright and downward triangles are put together, they form the Star of David and symbolize balance and knowledge.
