THE EARTHY TRIGON
compiled by Dee Finney
|Joe and I were discussing the dream of the Bull
I had last night and our
Bison/Bull dream page,
and he mentioned the earthy-trigon, at which point I got so tired I had to
lay down and take a nap. As usual, I had a vision as soon as I lay
I saw 3 white circles within each other and 3 women dressed in white sitting within the 3 circles.
I then went into a dream in which I was searching in the Bible to see if the earthy-trigon was in it.
A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM
3-17-02 - DREAM - I was in a small town somewhere. There was a small circus coming to town and they were riding horses and driving their animals through the center of town.
As the animals got closer, I saw this huge brown western bull with wide horns looking wild and it came charging up the street. It ran into the horses with the men riding them but that didn't stop him. He was so close, I got scared and turned to run away and ran into a woman standing close behind me.
I was pinned against the woman and the bull caught up to me, opened his mouth and wrapped his big black tongue around my head and wouldn't let go.
The three of us stood there together - my head inside the bull's mouth wit his tongue wrapped around my head, pinned up against the other woman's head.
I could hear the bull breathing down my neck behind my head and he wasn't letting go for any reason.
I started pounding the bull with my fist harder and harder but he didn't let go, so I finally grabbed his tongue and tried to peel it off my head and push him away and that wasn't working either.
Finally, I managed to sock him hard enough in the chest and he finally let go and pulled back and ran down the street.
Then I woke up and discovered I had dreamed it and started telling other people what had happened and they all told me it had happened to them too.
PREVIOUS DREAMS OF THE BULL AND ME
1989 - DREAM - I was going west on Small Rd. I came to the intersection of Calhoun Rd. (172nd St.) For some reason I stopped at a barn on the left side of the road on the west side of Calhoun Rd. (There is no building there) I went into the barn. There was a huge picture window on the north side of the building so I could see everything in that direction. On the west side of the building, there was a double set of doors which opened up. That was the direction I wanted to go, but I couldn't do it because there was a huge black curly haired bull laying at my feet and I had to get past him to go that direction. The bull turned his head and looked at me with his huge brown left eye. It glistened and almost seemed like love emanated from it. Out those doors to the west was a huge green sunny meadow. All I had to do was get past the bull.
8-8-97 Dream/Vision: The woman I was watching was out of control of her life. She went into a ceremony to bring it back under control. There was a huge creature across from her with a bull-like head. She sat on the floor, dressed all in red from head to toe. She wore red stockings and shoes as well. I saw it as very sexual. She had a bowl of water with a candle burning in it placed between her outstretched legs which were spread wide. She chanted a sweet song to the God/Goddess Shimeekah. Joe was sitting to my right in the crystal. I commented to Joe that her ceremony was very Shamanic.
|The meaning of the bison dream became more clear
when Joe read Isis Unveiled Vol II by H. P. Blavatsky. In her discussion
of the Biblical patriarchs being Zodiacal signs, Blavatsky says that Adam,
Cain, and Abel form the first triad. Cain presides over the Taurus Bull,
which belongs to the earthy trigon. In the Persian 'Avesta', Ormazd produced
a being, the source and type of all the Universal beings, called "Life",
or "Bull" in the 'Zend'. Ahriman (Cain) kills this being (Abel), from the
seed of which (Seth) new beings are produced. Abel means 'son'. Apollo was
also 'Abelius,' of Bel. Cain means a "Hermaic Statue, a pillar, the symbol
The symbolism of the bison/Taurus seems quite similar to "death/destruction/creation", attributed to Kali and her consort Shiva the destroyer God. This is equated to a seed growing into a plant. The seed is destroyed in the process of the plant's growth.
Pythagoras calls three the perfect number, because it has a "beginning, middle, and end", and made it a symbol of Deity. A Trinity (means: threeness) is by no means restricted to the Christian religion. The Brahmins represent their god with three heads.
According to mythology:
1. The world was ruled by three gods [Jupiter/Zeus (heaven), Neptune/Poseidon (sea), and Pluto/Hades (the underworld)]. [Jupiter is represented with three-forked lightning (his thunderbolt), Neptune with a trident, and Pluto had a three-headed dog (Cerberus)].
2. The fountain from which Hylas drew water was presided over by three nymphs.
3. In Scandinavian mythology we have the "Mysterious Three"; that is, Har (High), Jafenhar (Equally High), and Thridi (the Third), who all sat on three thrones in Asgard.
4. (Greek) The HORAE were three sisters; Thallo (Spring), Auxo (Summer), and Carpo (Autumn or Harvest). They were also known as Eunomia (law and order), Dike (justice), and Eirene (peace).
5. (Greek) The FATES (also called the Moerae or Moirai) were three sisters; Clotho (the spinner, who spins the thread of life), Lachesis (the measurer, who allots the lifespan), and Atropos (she who cuts the thread of life).
6. The three Roman "Fates" were called the Parcae.
7. The three Norse "Fates" were called the Norns.
8. (Greek) The GRACES (also known as the Charites) were three sisters; Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer). They were the personifications of beauty and charm (daughters of Zeus and the oceanid nymph Eurynome).
9. The Roman "Graces" were called the Gratiae.
10.(Greek) The FURIES were three sisters; Tisiphone, Megaera, and Alecto. Furies (or Erinyes) were goddesses of vengeance. Born from the blood of Uranus, they punished wrongs committed against blood relatives regardless of the motivation. They were usually represented as crones with bats' wings, dogs' heads, and snakes for hair.
11.(Greek) Anius (a son of Apollo) had three daughters; Oeno (goddess of wine), Spermo (goddess of grain seed), and Elais (goddess of vegetable oil).
12.(Greek)There are three Harpies. They are Aello (storm), Celeno (blackness), and Ocypete (rapid).
13.The Sybylline books are three times three (of which only three have survived).
14.(Greek) The Muses were three times three.
15.The Triple Goddess (many mythologies) represent Maiden, Mother, and Crone.
16.In astrology, a Trigon is the junction of three signs. The Zodiac consists of four trigons; the watery trigon (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), the fiery trigon (Aries, Leo, sagittarius), the earthly trigon (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), and the airy trigon (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius).
17.The cardinal colors are three (red, yellow, and blue).
18.The kingdoms of nature are three (animal, vegetable, and mineral).
19. We have Faith, Hope, and Charity (three).
The concept of the Great Goddess as The Triple Goddess, young woman (Maiden),
birth-giving matron (Mother), and an old woman (Crone), dates from the earliest
ages of mankind. (These attributes were also ascribed to the three phases
of the moon; the Maiden, which corresponds to the new moon; the Mother, which
corresponds to the full moon; and the Crone, which is the waning moon. These
aspects have been used for centuries by many civilizations.) This concept
was embraced by many different mythologies from many different parts of the
world. The Vikings had the Norns (Urdu/Verdandi/Skuld), the Romans
had the Fortunae (Concordia/Salus/Pax), the druids had Diana
Triformis, the Greeks had the Moirae, Graeae, Horae, etc.
The Maiden aspect represents enchantment, inception, expansion, the female principle, the promise of new beginnings, youth, excitement, and a carefree erotic aura. She is innocent in some ways, but also a seductress who recognizes the power of her sexuality. Maiden goddesses include: Anatha, Brigid, Nimue, Kore, Persephone, Gerd, Caer, Blodeuwedd. Her traditional color is white.
The Mother is ripeness, fertility, fulfillment, stability, and power. Mother is ripe, full-breasted, at the peak of her womanly powers. She is the one who tenderly rocks the baby, but she is also the lioness who hunts to feed her offspring and will fight to the death to protect them. Mother goddesses include: Aa, Ambika, Anahita, Asherah, Ceres, Coatlicue, Danu, Demeter, Hathor, Ishtar, Isis, Lakshmi, Luonnotar, Nintu, Sheng-Mu. Her traditional color is red.
The Crone is wisdom, retrenchment, repose, and compassion. She is old age, experience, accumulated wisdom and death. She is the gateway to Death, and the guide to Rebirth. Crone goddesses include: Annis, Baba Yaga, Cailleach, Greine, Hel, Maman Brigitte, Oya, Sedna, Skuld, Takotsi, Toci. Her color is black.
Goddesses who embody the triple aspect within themselves include: Brigid (Ireland/Celtic), Carmenta or Carmentis (Roman), Hekate or Hecate (Greek/Anatolia), Helice (Greek), Kali (India), the Morrigan (Ireland/Celtic).
The Primal Goddess, Maha Devi, in India was divided into three goddesses personified as Creator, Preserver and Destroyer (Saraswati, Laksmi and Kali). The three aspects of the Primal Goddess were represented by three kinds of priestesses: Yogini (nubile virgins), Matri (mothers), and Dakini (women elders).
The Morrigan; Celtic Goddess of Destruction/Creation. The Irish triple goddess: Anu (Ana, Nemain), the fertility maiden; Badb, the mother, producer of life; and Macha, the death-crone, symbolized as a carrion-eating raven.
Kore, Demeter and Persephone (or Hekate) created from the original Cretan Rhea.
