Bellatrix, also designated Gamma Orionis is the third brightest star in the constellation of Orion. The traditional name Bellatrix is Latin for «female warrior» also called the Amazon Star. The Amazons appear in Greek art of the Archaic period and in connection with several Greek legends and were referred to as Antianeirai («those who fight like men»). The guilt waves symbolize also the energy and the vibrations in the air when Orion, the celestial archer, shot his golden arrow on Earth. The shimmering dark Granit used on the top is a reresentation of the cosmos above us.
The power of three is universal and is the tripartide nature of the world as heaven, earth, and waters. It is human as body, soul and spirit. Notice the distinction that soul and spirit are not the same. They are not. Three is birth, life, death. It is the beginning, middle and end. Three is a complete cycle unto itself. It is past, present, future. Pythagorean three means completion.
‘Power of Three’ has to do with Alchemy. The Egyptian god Thoth or the Greek Hermes Trismegistus (Thrice Blessed or Thrice Great) are the progenitors of the Emerald Tablets describing the mysteries of Alchemy. The alchemy of three is demonstrated by its power of multiplicity. Thus in addition to being a number of good fortune, Three is also the number of multiplicity and alchemy among other things.
