Term: Triangle


Any geometric figure consisting of three straight sides. Often used to represent spiritual triads. A triangle with one point down was used to represent goddess energy while a triangle with one point up was used to represent masculine or god energy. This popular association in India was either discovered separately or brought into the Greco-Roman empire. In the Middle East, the six-pointed star formed through an intersection of one upward and one downward pointing triangle eventually became the symbol of the Jewish people.
