Longwood Warren 2018:
Location: This part of Hampshire has a long crop circle history with some of the earliest recorded crop circles appearing there in the 1970s and 1980s. The central feature of the landscape here is the Cheesefoot Head (or Matterly Bowl) which is a stunning natural amphitheatre that affords spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. In years gone by the Bowl was the location for several spectacular crop circles, but it is no longer planted with crops and now plays host to the Boomtown Fair music and culture festival each summer in August. This crop circle was located to the south of the amphitheatre on a tract of land called Longwood Warren that would have been part of the estate once belonging to the now demolished Longwood House (read more here). There was a circle here last year (2017) – read more.
Design & Symbolism: This design has a nine-fold geometry, but its beauty lies in the laid crop where nine arcs can be seen and then the crop has been flattened in a graceful wave-like pattern – it looked stunning in the late afternoon sunlight. Nine is the number of Threshold because it is the last of the single digit numbers and therefore it stands on the threshold of the move to double-digits. Nine contains three trinities (thrice three), so it is also seen as the the principle of three taken to its highest level. Curiously, nine is also associated with the superhuman and is mentioned in many myths pertaining to the impossible (the nine year journey of Odysseus), or the nine Angelic Realms of Christian tradition: perpetual thresholds , that cannot quite be grasped.
I love the way the crop circles often present us with numbers as ‘flowers’ – designs with petals – such beauty and succinctness, nature and super-nature married together.
