Symbolic Meaning of the Star of David

The official interpretations for the symbolic meaning of the Star of David and the Seal of Solomon are curious. These mysterious symbols have been associated with horrors and demons yet is the principal symbol of Judaism and adorned on the Israeli flag.

So what does the Star of David really represent?

Today, the Star of David is mostly attributed to the Jewish tradition and features in the centre of the national flag of Israel. The official meaning given for the Star of David is “new beginnings for Israel.”

This particular symbol was originally chosen by the Jewish race in 1345. The country gained independence in 1945. That’s a long time for a new beginning to start!

Joking aside, the six-pointed star dates back even early and is associated with the biblical King David who led the tribes of Israel to find new land in Jerusalem.

The symbol was then adopted by David’s son, King Solomon, although the design was changed slightly so that the lines of the triangles overlap – as you can see in the image below. This symbol is therefore also known as the Seal of Solomon although has more or less the same symbolic meaning as the Star of David.

Seal of Solomon symbolism

Since the 17th Century, the star has been used to identify Jews who were subsequently the subject of many persecutions over the centuries, culminating in the horrific holocaust of the mid-1900s.

It is an irony that a symbol which is supposed to represent liberation and new beginnings is used to identify the people authorities want to subjugate. That is the negative aspect. It is even more curious that the Judeo-Christian church continues to use this symbol and display it proudly in the stained-glass windows of their churches and tiled floors.

But then again, the ancient meaning of the spliced triangles does not mean new beginnings, nor is it a symbol that has origins with the Catholic Church.

The Six-Pointed Star in Magic

The Star of David/Seal of Solomon is a hexagram and dates back to the 10th Century BCE, long before the Christian Church existed.

Even the Jews say it was taken from the House of King David who allegedly used this symbol to perform “majick” and in ancient times it was used in the worship of Saturn.

Although Jewish mystics never mentioned the six-pointed star in writing, at least none that has survived, the star was used as a symbol of deep spiritual meaning.

Some Kabbalists said it symbolised God’s complete rule over the universe and that the two triangles represent duality – a shred of information that takes us closer to the truth!

The Star of David is made up of two triangles, one standing upright, the other facing downwards. These symbols are also used in alchemy and astrology to represent male and female principles and the four elements – each of which represents attributes of character and emotion.

Male and Female Principles of the Mind

The Catholic Church says the two triangles represent the body and soul come together as one. This is not completely wrong. But they seem to have left the mind out of the equation. Are we not supposed to synchronise body, mind and soul?

In actual fact, the Star of David relates to the mind and healing! The two triangles represent the male and female parts of the brain, the left and right membranes that dictate how we think, act and perceive.

The right side of the brain is thought to be the feminine side because it mostly deals with emotions, creativity and nurturing. The left side of the brain is analytical, logical and active.

It is important to balance the two sides of your brain in order to intertwine the mind with the body and soul. They are interconnected. This is another example of how the Christian Church emit crucial pieces of information that disfigure the mind with the body and soul. We have seen that before in the Holy Trinity!

When the mind is balanced you are able to handle situations life throws at you with greater ability and assurance. From a spiritual point of view, a balanced mind opens up the pineal gland – your third eye, or all-seeing eye through which spiritually enables you to see things clearly.

The Hexagram in Pagan Worship

In her book, Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, Dr. Cathy Burns says the hexagram or Crest of Solomon was used as a talisman of Saturn worship. This snippet is particularly interesting given NASA found a hexagram shaped vortex in the atmosphere of Saturn.

Saturn worship was of course later adapted to Satan worship by the Christian Church and used as propaganda against pagans who preferred not to follow the path of Christ.

Given the Church still uses pagan symbols, New World Order researchers turn the tables and label the Church – and Freemasonic lodges – as Devil worshippers.

The reality is that the symbolic meaning of the Star of David/Seal of Solomon is used to represent all duality. The ancients said that according to the natural laws of the universe everything that exists has to have an exact opposite – the law of duality. And that means good and evil.
