Tetractys Zodiac And Six-Pointed Star

The Tetractys shows the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 as dots, each in a separate line.

The Tetractys is connected to the six-pointed Star, like we see here in the following drawing.

It is also connected to the zodiac as Clare Martin showed in her book "Mapping the Psyche", London, 2005:

Pythagoras devised the Tetractys as a mathematical model that shows how numbers describe the nature of the universe as well as the nature of any system, including the human being…

These numbers are not simply quantitative, but are also archetypes of number, with ‘oneness’, ‘twoness’, ‘threeness’ and ‘fourness’ being understood as wholes or unities in themselves, each with their own qualitative meaning.

1-     There is one zodiac

2-     The signs are active or passive (Scorpio is passive)

3-     The signs are cardinal, fixed or mutable (Scorpio is fixed)

4-     Each sign belongs to one of the elements: fire, earth, air, water (Scorpio is water)
