Chalice Well Prayer Cards
Chalice Well is one of Britain’s most ancient wells surrounded by beautiful gardens and orchards.
The overlapping of two equal circles creates a figure of profound and universal symbolism, called the Vesica Piscis. It represents the union of heaven and earth, spirit and matter, conscious and unconscious, masculine and feminine.
The term ‘Vesica Piscis’ translates from Latin as ‘Vessel of the Fish’ and is associated with Christ and the early symbol of the fish in Christianity.
The geometrical properties and ratios of the two precisely interlocking circles mirror the properties found in the natural world and form the basis of a harmonic found in the design of many ancient sacred sights and churches.
Imagine the Vesica as a gateway to the source. Contemplate it and go on a journey from the world of matter into the world of spirit and return bringing your spirit into the material world.
