The 5 pointed Star is a most Ancient symbol predating by centuries the 6 pointed star often associated with Solomon.
Solomon The King"" was the 2nd son of David and Bathsheba and the 3rd King of Israel. He ruled around the 10th century B.C. King Solomon was a Master Magician and had authority over all the Spirits and Birds and the Beasts.
The 5 Pointed Star is one of the oldest and most potent of all the Talismans. It has been said that this symbol will protect the Seeker from All Evil influences as well as preserve mankind from the Machinations of Evil Spirits.
The Five Points of the Star have come to represent many things:
- The 5 ELEMENTS: Spirit, Fire, Water, Air (in descending order of authority.)
- The 5 SENSES: Sight, Hearing, Taste, Smell, Touch.
- The 5 LIFE FORMS: Man, Animal, Fish, Plant, Crystal.
- FIVE IS THE NUMBER OF MAN: The pentagram represents the Perfect Man: Head, 2 Hands, and 2 feet. (also 5 fingers.)
- The five wounds of Jesus on the cross.
It is said that NO Evil can pass where the Shield of Solomon is displayed.
