The circular shape of this pendant represents the Sun, the Moon, the Earth, and the Soul. The pendant includes a number of symbols from Cajero’s Natural Divinity Series, including the following:
The stars represent the vastness of the Heavens. They also represent the three levels of creation: conscious, subconscious, and the superconscious. Cajero also refer to this as body, mind, and spirit.
The panel to the left of the stars contains a wave pattern, which represents water’s life-giving properties, fluidity, and an openness for prosperity and wisdom to flow into one’s life.
The dragonflies represent the masculine essence of life, and the butterflies represent all that is feminine. Each goes through its own metamporphosis. I use them as symbols of change as we grow into new levels of awareness about life.
The panel that contains four circles of various sizes represents souls waiting to be conceived in their unique stages of spiritual evolution. The larger souls have attained higher levels of wisdom.
The bottom panel has two altar steps, representing a place of Oneness, prayers and meditations of the male and female.
Pendant is 2″ in diameter; it is 1/8″ thick. Black leather cord with sterling silver tips is included.
The symbols are in bas relief against an oxidized background. The dark background is more uniform than the images show; the camera picks up reflections that are generally not visible to the human eye.
