I have just eaten an apple.
Cut an apple through its equator and you will get a perfect pentagram shape. I have one above which I cut earlier. The pentagram is a symbol of nature and this sacred shape was a symbol of the Goddess Kore (you will remember that if you think “core” with the special “K”being a Goddess) She was worshipped under other names including Ceres, the Goddess of grain and fertlilty where the word “cereal” comes from.
Apples have influenced the world in fairy tales and even in science. Snow White was offered a poisoned one and one fell on Isaac Newton’s head and inspired him about gravity. The apple was on a fall’s errand.
The number 5 is one of the fibonacci numbers which is nature’s numbering system. This means that it occurs a lot within natural structures. We have 5 senses, 5 fingers (include your thumb) and toes on each hand/foot. The rose is another sacred symbol and most species have 5 petals. Apples are part of the rose family. There are five oceans within the 5 parts of the geographical world. This number features in the Bible too. Christ had 5 wounds so 5 is seen as a symbol of incarnated conscience, matter plus spirit. The small King David killed Goliath with 5 small pebbles. The Pentateuch is the first 5 books of the law according to Judaism.
Interestingly it is not stated in the Bible that the apple is a “forbidden fruit”. The fruit was just described as referred to as “fruit from the Tree of Knowledge”.Hugo Van Der Goes nominated the apple as the forbidden fruit in his 1470 A.D. painting, The Fall of Man. It was only after that that it became associated with the “forbidden fruit”, The term “Adam’s Apple” comes from the idea that Adam swallowed this “forbidden fruit” and it got stuck in his throat. The throat is the part of the body ruled by Taurus, whose ruling planet is Venus.
The Pacific shellfish “Abalone”-means “big apple.” The abalone shell is special to the Goddess Aphrodite. She sometimes rode along on the crest of a wave on an abalone shell. The Romans called this Goddess of Romance, Venus. The number 5 is embedded in the skies by the pentagram route that Venus draws over time as she journeys. This planet retrogrades 5 times in one eight year cycle.
The apple provides a natural remedy for the heart – “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”
Make it one of your 5 a day. Ingest the number 5 frequency which is about focussing freedom in action and finding greater stability.
