Learning to truly embrace and realize that without blocking awareness through an over-emphasis on the limited physical senses, i. From here we can learn to "Trust," the quality given to the North and element of Earth. Trust leads to co-operation with the inner realms, including establishing allies and places of power. To walk truly with our faery cousins we must learn not only to trust them, being careful to establish who and what can be trusted , but to be worthy of their trust in return.
This trust is built upon using the fourth quality of "Honor," which coincides with the direction of Within and the Sun. Each of us carries an energetic sun at our center, the spiritual light through which we are judged by otherworldly beings. For this light to shine true and pure, and our energy to be untainted within both their realm and our own, we must live every breath with honor and learn how best to honor our alliances, friendships, and the land itself.
When these qualities are firmly established, then the world of "Magick," the fifth quality, related to the Moon and the direction of Below, will start to reveal itself. Through this art, and collaboration with established allies and co-walkers in the Otherworld , we can start to implement positive change within ourselves, the microcosm, and thus affect the macrocosm, or outer world.
The indispensable sixth quality is "Joy," which comes from the West and the element of our emotions, Water. To feel true joy is to be open to the ecstasy of the Universe, to celebrate life, existence, and each other, even in adversity. When the previous qualities have been thoroughly explored, then the natural inclination of the pure spirit towards joy is unlocked. There is always beauty, true beauty, to be found in the world and beauty is the nourishment of joy. Joy, and the culmination of the previous qualities, give birth to the seventh quality of "Inspiration.
Otherworldy forces may inspire, but so may people living and working within the world through their impulse to create. It is the passion, action, and transformative potential of inspiration that make its designation of the element of Fire and the direction of South so appropriate.
Some time after finishing Faery Craft I took another look at the "Faery Craft Septagram" and realized that the more traditional symbolism of the seven planets, and thus their accompanying correspondences, would also work as an extra layer of meaning along with the seven directions and Faery qualities although not with the directions that they are assigned in Western Mystery Tradition, so in this way it is another original addition.
The Sun Honour and Moon Magick remain as they are, but the other planets can be placed according to their inherent qualities: Mercury in the East works perfectly with the Element of Air and the quality of Knowledge.
To choose a planet that could stand with "The Stars" for the direction of Above was less obvious, but as the "Morning Star" herself, Venus fits this direction well. After all, she is the Goddess of love and matters of the heart, and it is through the heart that we experience "Connection. This particularly emphasizes the need to act upon inspiration, as Mars is the planet of action. This assignation of the planets to the seven directions and qualities gives us an extra tool to use in our Faery Craft—the planetary vowels.
These vowels originate in the magick of Ancient Greece, and hence are represented by Greek letters. They are:. These sounds could be intoned as part of a meditation of magical working that involved the related quality, or as a focus to emphasize and unlock that quality, or they could all be strung together as a mantra to help bring all the qualities together in balance within the self.
This might be a very effective method to use in parallel with the voice exercises featured in Chapter Two of Faery Craft. It is my hope that this small article has shed some light on the use of this particular symbol within Faery Craft and Faery work as a whole, and that perhaps you will be inspired to adopt these meanings yourself and work with them.
Symbols are a language of their own, and as such, are constantly evolving. We should not be afraid of adapting their uses, so long as they do not contradict the essential nature and energy of the symbol itself. Once a book is written and in print, the work does not become static and fixed. If it did, whilst the words would remain, the life of the work would inevitably fade, as all things must when they resist change. Knowledge is a living, breathing changing thing, and when we embrace that, we may dance in the arms of wisdom.

In Babylonian hymns and incantations, the Igigi and Anunnaki play a very prominent part, in which Anu is represented as the father of both groups. The Anunnaki, who as children of Enki were the special friends of the newly created men.
Please note the 8 pointed stars on his clothing. The secret underlying this article is the Greek alphabet when computing the gematria of the allegorical language of the New Testament. The number eight corresponds to the New Testament, according to Ambroise. In Christianity there are eight beatitudes: poverty of spirit; mourning; meekness; desire of righteousness; mercy; purity of heart; the peacemaker; and suffering for the sake of righteousness.
Amongst the Jews, 8 is the number of circumcision, because that ceremony took place on the eighth day. The number 8, which arithmeticians call the first actual square, has been named by the Pythagorean Philo ; laus- the name of geometrical harmony, because he thinks he recognizes in it all the harmonic relations. You will find that in mathematics that the symbol of the infinity is represented by a 8 laid down. It was the Pythagoreans who held that there are in man eight organs of knowledge; sense, fantasy, art, opinion, prudence, science, wisdom, and mind.
The Greeks had dedicated the number 8 to Dionysius, who was born in the eighth month of the year. Moe is the founder of GnosticWarrior. He is a father, husband, author, martial arts black belt, and an expert in Gnosticism, the occult, and esotericism. I am looking for the meaning of the pointed star. For instance, you may wish to inscribe one on top of your Book of Shadows to help prevent people from perusing it's contents.
You can also wear it as an amulet to help prevent others from knowing what you are truly thinking. No matter what your tradition or belief this star is indeed a magickal and wondrous symbol to be used.
If you research it, you may find additional meanings as well. I do a lot of work with the Fae, so those are the ones I am the most familiar with.
