What is a Mandala?

In its basic form, a mandala consists of a square that contains four gates with a circle and a central point. It emanates radial balance and portrays a sense of proportion. Today, mandalas commonly refer to geometric patterns, charts, and diagrams representing the cosmos in a symbolic or metaphysical sense.

The goat is a polarizing animal. The reason I say this is because it can represent all aspects of the good and evil. The goat is used in many satanic symbols but is also a sign of life and strength in other cultures. In this post, I’m going to review some of the symbolism behind the goat and the different ways people get the goat tattoo.

Of all animals, the goat was the first to be domesticated by man. The reason for this is because they are a resourceful animal. They are used for their meat and milk and in some cultures, they are sacred. Goats have a big role in the growth of human civilization. Because this animal has had such an impact on humanity, there are a lot of myths and legends surrounding this animal.

In Norse legends, Thor was pulled across the sky in a chariot pulled by goats. Every night Thor would eat these goats and they would reincarnate every morning and go back to pulling Thor’s chariot.
