THE HEXAGRAM AS USED IN THE OCCULT
The hexagram contains 3 hourglass symbols (or Double
"the number six is
represented in the Qabalah by two triangles which form the
seal of Solomon when they are brought together and given a
common center..." (Eliphas Levi, The Mysteries of the
Qabalah, WEISER BOOKS)
, each of which has six sides, yeilding 6,6,6:
= 6 6 6
"666 is the occult number of the Hexagram,
the symbol of the Sun, for a single line of the Hexagram contains
three equal parts, each of which may be represented by the number
1, so that every line can be symbolized by the number 111. There
are six lines in all, so that 111x6=666, the most Holy Number
of the Sun. Each angle of the Hexagram is 60 degrees. 60 is
the number of the Hebrew letter Samekh, which is the letter
of the Holy Guardian Angel or the Solar Self in Man. Six angles
of 60 degrees each equals 360 degrees, and 360 is the number
of the Hebrew letter Shin spelled in full. Shin is the letter
of the Sun and of 666. Also 666 is the number of a "Man" who
(David Cherubim, aka, lives in the Sun."
Frater Aurora Aureae of The Order of the Thelemic Golden Dawn,
as quoted in his work Thelmic Numbers and Words
The Six-Pointed Star or Hexagram, is called the Tetragrammaton
and is the symbolic representation of the Jewish-Talmudic G-d
of the Kabbala. The Sephirotic Tree of the Cabala taught that
the sum of the numerical values of Ain-Soph (166, absolute empty)
and Kether (500, unity) gives 666, i.e., the Sun. According
to Godwin's Cabbalistic Encyclopedia, one number of the sun in
Kabbalistic numerology is 666. Thus the hexagram, which has a
numerological signature of 666, according to David Cherubim,
might well be called the "sun star"
It's interesting to note, also,
that the hexagram consists of a total of 18 shorter lines, where the
demarcation for each line is the intersection of another line,
such that, if we take the total, 18, and use 6 as the break or
demarcation of the total, we have 18 broken into 3 sets of six,
or 666 on an abacus in base 10 notation, as follows:
Mahatma Letters", page 345 "The double Triangle viewed by the Jewish
Kabbalists as Solomon's Seal is...the Sri-Antana of the Archaic Aryan
Temple, the Mystery of Mysteries, a geometrical synthesis of the whole
occult doctrine. The two interlaced triangles are the Buddham-Gums of
Creation. They contain the 'squaring of the circle,' the 'Philosopher's
Stone,' the great problem of Life and Death and--the Mystery of Evil.
The Chela who can explain this sign from every one of tis aspects is
virtually an adept."
(This quote is from John Dee's
"Heirolyphic Monad", WEISER BOOKS, ISBN 1-57863-203-X.) In Hebrew
the sixth letter, Vav, which in Hebrew is equivalent
to the number six, translates into English as the letter 'v' or 'w',
so that the three chevrons, which can be construed as three 'v' letters,
would translate from 'vvv' or 'www' to 666, meaning, among other things,
that each World Wide Web address translates into Hebrew as 666. Also,
the Hebrew letter Shin symbolically resembles the English letter 'W',
which translates to 6 in Hebrew. As Qaballist Cherubim observes,
is the letter of the sun and of 666."
Thus the World Wide Web
acronym is an eery coincidence wraped in a coincidence,
such that one is apt to wonder if it is by coincidence or design that
the World Wid Web address Qabbalistically equates to 666.
"The six pointed star is of ancient religious significance
and is known as KING SOLOMAN'S SEAL. Robert Morris has
said that he borrowed the plan of the O.E.S. [Order of the
Eastern Star] Signet from King Solomon's Seal.
This six pointed star is used in masonic work and is also found
other well known secret orders.
("Hidden Secrets of the Eastern Star," page 17, Cathy Burns)
In Webster's Dictionary, we read: "Solomon's Seal, a mystic
talismanic symbol in the form of an interlaced outline of either
a five pointed star or six-pointed star."

Webster's Dictionary, Second Edition, page 1817, where the six-pointed star is
illustrated, as pictured above.)

the EASTERN STAR (i.e., inverted pentagram) and SOLOMON'S SEAL (i.e.,
hexagram) both represent the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.
According to Eliphas Levi in Mysteries of the Qabalah
the EASTERN STAR of Freemasonry
is also called the STAR OF REMPHAN
. In the Book of Acts, we
Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your
god Remphan, figures which ye make to worship them; and I will
carry you away beyond Babylon."
Kevin Gest, a Freemason, wrote:
"There is a belief, originating from ancient times, that the
hexagram was regarded as a symbol that, because of its six
points, defines the creation of the universe: a creation that
extends north, south, east, west, up, and down....while,
from the Indian subcontinent, we learn that it
represents the united shields of the gods
Vishnu and Shiva."
(Kevin L. Gest, The Secrets of Solomon's Temple
John Daniel, a Protestant Christian and Masonologist,
claims that the hexagram did have profound Biblical meaning,
though the import is unflattering to modern-day Talmudic
"Originally the interlaced triangle was a decorative motif
or magical emplem symbolic of the Hindu star-god. Later it
migrated to Assyria and there was adopted by the ten
northern tribes of Israel before they were taken into
captivity in 721 BC23. (see II Kings 17:1-23)
This is confirmed by the prophet Amos, who God had sent to
the ten tribes to warn them of impending bondage if they
refused to not repent of their idolatry with Assyrian
gods. Amos, speaking for God, warns Israel in Amos
But ye have borne the tabernacle of...
Chiun...the star of
your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I
cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the
Lord, whose name is the God of hosts.
Chiun is the planet Saturn, the star-god, symbollized by

had 'bourne' or carried 'the star...god' by wearing the
hexagram as an amulet. It was also carved in the door
frames of every Iraelite house, ostensibly to ward off the
'fire god.' Since that time the six-pointed star has also
been a Jewish symbol found in synagogues from the very
beginning of the diaspora (see chap. 7 pp. 185-186). This
was 1,700 years before the Priory of Sion appropirated it
in the first millinium A.D. 26
After that it
appeared on the heraldic flag of the Jews in Prague in
1527, a full two centuries before Gentile Freemasonry
adopted it from the Jewish Cabala. Therefore it would be
natural for the Alliance in 1860 and the Zionists in 1897
to select it as their herald." (Scarlet and the Beast,
Vol. III, page 447-48)
"...the hexagram is widely
associated with the occult, and is considered the most powerful of
Satan's symbols, containing '666'. Occultists also call it the trud
and use it in necromantic ceremonies to summon evil spirits."
