Hello everyone, I was going through some old (and I mean old) books that I had written, long ago. I was tickled to run across my first BOS and it amazed me how beautiful it was. I wrote it in the 1990s, that’s over 30 years ago.
Opening the cover there was a pic of the triple goddess The 1st page was the floral pentagram I love so much. The name Bergid (my name then) and dated 1990.
I won’t go through all of it but today I want to pick a section That as I thought out loud, ‘really?’
My actual writing was illegible, most of it I couldn’t read but some of it I had downloaded. We’ve studied the altar tools we know what it looks like and means to us.
But did you know that the pentagram…
During the times of the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), the pentacle was the first and most important of the Seven Seals – an amulet whose seals represented the seven secret names of God. It was inscribed on King Solomon’s ring, which is often called Solomon’s Seal in error. Each point of the pentagram was also interpreted as referring to the five books of the Pentateuch – the first five books in the Hebrew Scriptures; the Torah.
To the Hebrews, the five points of the pentagram were tied to the Pentateuch (the first five books of the bible) and represented as a whole the concept of truth.
The pentagram was looked at as satanic for a time.
For most of human history the pentagram has symbolized good things – the heavens, stars, health, scriptures, truth, and even the Savior, Jesus Christ.
That’s it for today
