# Sacred Geometry Symbols

In this first section I will teach you about the most popular and important sacred geometry symbols. First we will start with the Golden Rectangle. The Golden Rectangle is known as the most pleasing rectangle shape to look at, it is the most perfect. The Greeks were the first to call phi the Golden Ratio. They associated the number with perfection. It seems to be part of human nature or instinct for us to find things that contain the Golden Ratio naturally attractive. The Golden Rectangle has this Golden Ratio into its makeup. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil, and a rule to draw your first Golden Rectangle.

1. First Step: Make a square, 1 or 2 inches long. Make sure all the sides of your square are equal. This exercise is best done with graph paper. If you don't have any it will work anyways.

2. Step Two: With a ruler find the mid-point on the base of your square, measure half the length of your square in other words. Ok, now draw a line up the middle of your square all the way to the top.

3. Step Three: Draw a diagonal line from the mid-point on the base of the square all the way up to the right top side of your second half of your square. Now measure the length of this line with your ruler.

4. Step Four: Starting from the mid-point of the base of your square, draw a line towards the right the same length as your diagonal line. Do the same from the top mid-point of your square. Join the two ends with a line going down. Now you have a Golden Rectangle. You can measure the proportions if you want to see it.

Next I will show you how to construct a Golden Spiral also known as the Fibonacci Spiral.
