The Star of David is a six pointed star with a great mystic meaning. It is a Jewish symbol, and we sometimes refer to it as hexagram, Salomon's seal, six pointed star, double triangle, Seal of Salomon... And we could go on and on!
It is a timeless star full of history, which gives meaning to our past, our present, and our future. It carries within it the energy of the numbers of creation and the power of the words of the Bible. But there is no explanation for its origin, except for an Indian source or stories about King David.
In the following article, we will analyze its origin, properties, and uses, as well as many other details.
The hexagram or Seal of Solomon is the base of the star of David, and it is an ancient symbol that has been used over the centuries by the Jewish people, but also by Arab magicians, Kabbalists, Druids, and even Satanists.
In occultism, the six pointed star is not only inseparable from the five-pointed star or pentagram, but, in fact, it is only the opposite, the hidden part.
The Star of David can be seen as a double pyramid. The descending triangle represents the negative principle, and the ascending triangle represents the positive principle. For many, it is considered an equivalent to the eastern symbol of Yin and Yang.
There are also those who see in the Star of David a union of the masculine and the feminine, and how the two triangles intertwine to evoke the sexual act, between an active force and a passive force according to the scheme of the mentioned Yin and Yang.
Of its properties and uses, it is worth highlighting how the six pointed star is used within the Satanist cult to represent number 666, the number of the antichrist according to Revelation 13 because it contains 3 figures of six: 6 points, 6 triangles, 6 faces of the hexagon. The Star of David is used in black magic, and many witchcraft manuals describe the rituals for invoking hexagram demons.
If the six-pointed star is known as the Star of David, it is because it is attributed to King David. The Bible tells us that David was the first king that God put on Earth, and his most famous feat was killing the giant Goliath, whom he defeated by throwing a stone. He then became a warrior king.
The star of David has six branches of the star that symbolize the six days in which God created the world. According to tradition, the symbol of the Star of David was on the shield of King David, which protected him against enemies. This tradition comes from the Bible, from Ephesians 6:16, where it says "In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one."
If before we talked about the hexagram also being known as the Seal of Solomon, it is because Solomon, David's son, engraved the struggle between his father and the giant in a ring with this symbol, which represented the struggle between earth and heaven. Another mystical meaning of the Star of David is the conjunction of heavenly and earthly energy.
King David is buried in Jerusalem, on the outskirts of the ancient city, and every day he is visited by hundreds of Jewish religion faithful people, who prostrate themselves before him to pray. However, the association of this figure as a Judaism symbol was also reflected in the conquest of Europe that Adolf Hitler attempted to carry out in the twentieth century. Hitler forced all Jews to have a yellow six-pointed star on their clothes during the time they were brutally persecuted during the Holocaust.
At the founding of the state of Israel, the star of David depicted on the flag became the symbol of Israel. From a distinctive sign to a sign of infamy, the Star of David appears today as the key to the knowledge that leads every man to God.
Recently, a representation of the Star of David was found in a Jewish shrine in the city of Taranto, in southern Italy, in a tomb dating from the early third century AD. His name appears in Jewish writings for the first time in the twentieth century, in a book by Judah Hadassi, which mentioned that the "Shield of David" is behind the name of each angel.
Some experts point out that the Star of David is a complicated, intertwined figure that does not have six, but twelve sides as it would not be composed of two superimposed triangles but six smaller triangles emerging from the central hexagram. Like the Jewish people, the star has twelve sides, representing the twelve tribes of Israel.
The Kabbalah teaches that God created the world with seven spiritual building blocks that are His seven emotional attributes. As a result, all creation is a reflection of these seven fundamental attributes. These are Chesed (goodness), Guevurah (severity), Tiferet (harmony), Netzach (perseverance), Hod (Splendor), Yesod (Foundation) and Malkuth (kingdom).
The Star of David contains seven compartments, which would represent these attributes. Yesod would be the center, the base, and all other attributes are rooted in it and come from it.
