The most obvious characteristic of the androgynous Baphomet symbol is that the male and female energies are not balanced or in equilibrium. The sun side of the symbol represents the male forces while the moon side represents the female forces. The hand and arm on the sun side are pointing up while the hand and arm on the moon side are pointing down.
Visualize each as a plus and minus of the male and female forces, or fluids. As such, the Baphomet symbol can be interpreted as representing an imbalance in the material world between the male and female energies. This imbalance prevents the true spiritual androgynous being from evolving out of the merging of the male and female fluids and ascending as one spiritual being made out of two.
