The Hexagram has been a central element in the 2016 design for Earth-Beat. It is a potent symbol of the macrocosm (God, the Universe and Higher Energies) and of the relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm (Humankind, the Earth and Manifest Energies). In its regular form it is drawn as two intersecting equilateral triangles, and it is most commonly seen as the Judaic Star of David.
The upward-pointing triangle (the symbol of the element Fire) represents the yearning of the manifest to reach or return to the Divine, with the downward-pointing triangle (the symbol of the element Water) signifying the descent of the Divine into matter. Where these two meet in the center of the hexagram, a point of balance and beauty is reached where the two hearts come together.
An area of mystical knowledge that is predicated on the relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm is astrology, and classical astrology and the hexagram, unsurprisingly, fit very well together. The twelve signs of the zodiac lie in order within the six points of the hexagram and the six vertices between them. The seven planets of classical astrology correspond to the six points of the hexagram and its center.
The six points of the hexagram can also be considered as representing the six syllables of the oldest and most important mantra of Tibetan Buddhism, Om Mani Padme Hum, with the center representing OM itself.
