The five pointed star
The five-pointed star represents the new man. The Human Being develops himself by chasing the Self-Consciousness along the path of the Self. The Human Being who, having overcome the educational conditioning and reached the totality of the super-ego, goes in search of the psycho-ego is like the five-pointed star. A five-pointed star executed with a closed line.
The Human Being follows his life following a line by closing a cycle through the construction of his Being Power and developing Self-Consciousness. This line that the Human Being travels goes from the birth of the physical body to the death of the same. The line is the continuous development of itself and the Five Pointed Star recalls the essential elements in which and through which its development takes place.
The five-pointed star is closed within a circle because the Universe surrounds the entire cycle of becoming of the Human Being.
Each point symbolizes a goal along the Self-Consciousness to be achieved or harmonized by the Human Being in the course of the formation of its own becoming. The highest point represents the individual’s reason. The rationality by which the individual describes the world in which he lives between forms, quantities, numbers and names. The world of reason is the world of description we, as Human Beings use reason and from reason we have to start to think the world because only reason is able to think the world, describe it and communicate it.
Reason as science, as scientific research, as analysis. The reason that builds the Human Being in an attempt to bring order to the surrounding world after the emotional world and the world of time has been blocked, in their intervention on consciousness by the GIH barrier.
As the individual faces his or her existence with passion, emotion and determination, that point tends to shrink. Rimpiccolissi. This is because as the educational conditioning that fixed the control of reason on the individual is limited, the emotional worlds and the world of time begin to communicate their needs and their intuitions to consciousness: the GIH barrier weakens. As educational conditioning changes, weakening, the barrier inside the brain tends to weaken and reason loses its central position in the individual to occupy a fragment of the existential condition.
Reason loses absolute control of the individual. Reason, expropriated from the place of pre-eminence in determining the individual’s choices, as owner of the same, becomes an instrument of use for the individual. The individual is master of himself.
The right tip of the star signifies feeling. Not just hearing, which is an aspect of it, but feeling as an overall perception of the surrounding universe, understanding and connecting its elements at the same time. The feeling is the expression of the emotional world. The world through which we build relationships with every subject in the world. Feel the emotions of the subjects of the world. Feel the throbbing of the surrounding world and the flow of tension lines.
The left tip of the star symbolizes seeing. To see means not looking at the shape of things with the eyes, however part of seeing, but the vision of the essence of things, which, although referring to the eyes, is seen with the whole totality of the individual’s body.
Seeing is seeing time. See the actions and their effects in the world. See as a perception that pushes the subject to action.
See also as the need for action of the Luminous body that grows within the Physical Being. The totality of his needs and his way of being. Its bands of light, its tensions.
Finally the last two tips at the bottom. The right tip represents the super-ego, the left one the psycho-ego.
These two points tend to develop as the Human Being proceeds along the path of development of Self-Consciousness along the path of the Self. They develop homogeneously as the Human Being proceeds. They can be unbalanced when a Being prefers to act by privileging the daily world of reason, the super-ego, or the emotional aspect of the world, the psycho-ego in which to concentrate one’s action in one’s life.
Finally the central pentagon. It represents the balancing principle of Human Being. It is the will to be; the will to be, the existential will. The determination. The desire to walk the path of one’s existence. The continuous reaffirmation of oneself in a world in which infinite selves reaffirm themselves. It is the principle of movement for movement.
When a Human Being dies, in the sense that his Life Energy begins the stagnation process, the starting point of death is the pentagon. The seat of the will as the balancing principle of the Human Being. The will: the Vital Energy made Being. The will is the surrogate for the reason for the will. The will is the narrow passage that the individual must travel in order to reach the will. The will is what is left to the Human Being, even if limited by the Educational Conditioning and by the barrier inside the brain, from which we can start to walk the path of Self-Consciousness.
This is the meaning of the five-pointed star drawn by a closed line inside a circle. When the central pentagram is regular and all five points are equal, it becomes the symbol of the Human Being who has not chosen. A Human Being in which becoming is still intact, but not in act, not even as a beginning. The larger the lower points of the star, the greater the approach of the Human Being to the totality of himself. To Self-Consciousness along the Self.
The five-pointed star represents the Human Being.
The five-pointed star represents the psychist.
The five-pointed star represents the Guardian.
It can never and never represent a follower of the Beings self-posed as a creator god.
They can only pray that their “god” grant them the dissolution of themselves as nothing. The five-pointed star represents truth seekers; contradictions; of becoming.
Origin of the Five Pointed Star
The five-pointed star entered the western symbolic imagination in 1556 when Vincenzo Cartari published in Venice “The Imagini de i Dèi de gli Antichi”. That text brings the symbolism of the Five-Pointed Star closer to the Christian cross in its alleged appearance to Constantine. The five-pointed star appears to the Romans during the wars of Antioch. The Roman general dreams of Alexander the Great who gives him the five-pointed star, with the letters Salus or Igea, and the Roman general adorns his insignia before the clash with the Galatians. The Galatians are defeated and the five-pointed star adopted as a symbol.
Constantine was a character who used the apparitions to justify his side. A propagandist of his time to whom Hercules had appeared on another occasion and for different purposes. Cartari’s text is one of the very first texts that speak of the Ancient Gods outside the rhetoric of the demonization of Christians. The design of the Five-pointed Star also appeared in the text of Cartari.
It is from Venice, from 1556 onwards, that the Five-pointed Star becomes the symbol of a religious path different from the Christian one, representing, in all circumstances, the new that emancipates itself from the old. After the translations of Marsiglio Ficino and the flourishing of the neo-Platonism that gave birth to the Italian Renaissance, with Pomponazzi, Giordano Bruno, Pico della Mirandola, Cardano, Vanini, Casanova, the Five-pointed Star spreads in Europe and is made its own between the end of 1500 and 1600 by Freemasons as a symbol of freedom from Christian absolutism. After the United States revolution, the Five-pointed Star spreads all over the world.
If you want to represent the five-pointed star inside a circle with the presence of the Gods of the Pagan Religion it is necessary to know the religious thought of the Pagan Religion and the meaning that the Pagan Religion gives to the names of the Gods and how the Pagan Religion substantiates the reality of the Gods .
The Five Pointed Star Symbol
and the Pagan Religion
It is not possible to define the Five-Pointed Star symbol of Pagan Religion if you do not know the relationship between the meaning of the symbol and the Gods that those meanings represent.
For example, the circle that is called Universe in Witchcraft. In ancient pre-Christian religion, referring to Orphism, it was called Nera Notte. Nera Notte, in which Gaia appears substance of every existence in the universe, is a uterus of life. An unconscious uterus that however begins to pulsate and manifest its intelligence at the very moment when the first intelligence, the first self-awareness, becomes aware by starting that process of transformation that leads the unconscious Gaia to universal awareness at the end of time. Time that kicks off in the womb of Nera Notte. For this reason, whether it is called the UNIVERSE or BLACK NIGHT circle, it is absolutely indifferent.
It is the principle of the Genius Loci of the Ancient Religion of Rome. The Genius Loci is the awareness and awareness of the place that is built and nourished by the awareness that inhabits that place: being the GOD of the place.
This also applies to the points of the star; change the name, but not the meaning. If I call the upper point Zeus-Poseidon-Hades or, more simply, Zeus, absolutely nothing changes since reason, understood as form and quantity that describes the world in which the Beings of Nature are born and act, is built by Zeus . The space of reason is claimed by Zeus as the right to build life, the life of Nature, against the Titans through Titanomachy.
The same is true of the two lateral points, which are feeling and seeing: one means time and the other emotions: they are worlds and are subjective ways of perceiving the life and the world in which we live. The emotions and the emotional world that we perceived since we were in the primordial soup (or in the womb) are represented by Uranus Starry and the world of transformation, of the eternal modification of each present, is the world represented by the Titan Cronos.
The same goes for the two bottom tips. Talking about the world of the superego and the world of the psycho-ego is equivalent to talking about the everyday world and the worlds of perception and transformation. Where one is the world of Hera, Nature, and the other is the world of the search for the freedom of perception that the individual perpetually practices and it is the eternal search for the freedom of Demeter that leads to change every lived experience.
And finally the center of the five-pointed star, the will. The toothed sickle which Cronos took from Gaia’s hands to build his space and which he imposed on the children of Nature through his daughter Estia. Persistence that feeds transformation.
Reading this symbol in this way allows us to link it to ancient religions, but nothing changes compared to the reading that Witchcraft gives it.
