One would be an upright triangle to symbolize the highest peak of Mulanje Mountain, Sapitwa and the other would be an upside side triangle, the opposite which for them is “Kuba” apparently a mountain in Mozambique whose name will remain hidden.

Tomasi Bona in their beliefs was summarised as meaning the whole world in his hands and feast while Tagoneka Mbona meant put to sleep/serpent spirit.
Chandiona Gonekela was summarised as it's seen me put to sleep and Nthanda mwana wa mwezi of the East which in English would be the Sirius star and child of the moon.
In Chichewa Nthanda yaku m'mawa means the African cross and star from the East. Kum'mwawa in Chichewa means the East and m'mawa, the morning so during a certain season and depending on its location it becomes a bright morning star.
Mwezi means the moon both seen in the sky and drawn by the ancestors of healers of this land so go the tales.
The other three spirits include Dziwe Ntambamwana named after a pool/witchcraft but not to be confused with the Ntambanana River in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa and Ife Zonse meaning something like us all. The last is Sungamwana meaning keep the child for good.
