I came across this wonderful post about the ‘Faery star’ which I’d never heard of before. Isn’t it lovely!? I think I need one of these in my life. Thank you to Rhapsody Boheme for allowing me to share! (Please see link to Rhapsody’s blog page below)
Have you heard of the faery star? To me it sounds magical, perhaps a star of magic and wonder. Where the world is magnificent and filled with hope and stories of old tales and make belief.
The septagram, or Faery Star, is used instead of, or with, the Pentagram by many Faerie and Celtic based traditions. The seven points represent the Sun, the Forest (or Wood), the Sea, Magic, the Moon, the Wind, and Connection (or Spirit.)
An alternative set of definitions test upon use of the Faerie or Elven Star as a gateway to the Otherworld; each point of the Star is one of the entrances to the Faerie Realm, a pathway, or the 7 rays of manifestation of the Higher Self, as follows.
- 1st point – Power, Personal Will and Determination
- 2nd point – Unconditional Love, Wisdom, and Growth
- 3rd point – Knowledge and Intelligence
- 4th point – Harmony and Tranquility
- 5th point – Powers of Mind and Science
- 6th point – Devotion and Honesty
- 7th point – Magic
The points blend with each other, nurturing and joining us as one with the Universe, bestowing personal and spiritual transformation.
The hopeless romantic and dreamer in me, beliefs that this is beautiful. It leaves me inspired in my crafty ventures to make a piece of jewelry or other artifact using the Faery Star as it’s motivation. Would you wear it or display it somehow?
