FREEMASONRY'S EASTERN STAR SYMBOL
"In commemoration of the flooring of the temple and tabernacle,
the Mosaic pavement is always preserved as an ornament
of the Masonic lodge, with the blazing star in the center"
- A dictionary of Freemasonry, page 252, by Robert Macoy
"The Blazing Star (Pentagram) has been
regarded as an emblem of Omniscience, or
the All-Seeing Eye, which to the
Egyptian Initiates was the emblem of
Osiris, the Creator." Freemason Albert
Pike, "Morals and Dogma"
"To find in the BLAZING STAR of five points an allusion to
Divine Providence is fanciful; and to make it commemorative
of the Star that is said to have guided the Magi, is to give
it a meaning comparatively modern. Originally, it
represented Sirius, or the Dogstar, the forerunner of the
innundation of the Nile...Then it became the image of Horus
the son of Osiris, himself symbolized also by the Sun, the
author of the Seasons and the God of Time" Freemason Albert
Pike, "Morals and Dogma" pp 14-15, as quoted on page 102 of
"Masonry Beyond the Light" by William Schnoeblen
"The Holy and Mysterious Pentagram: When it
elevates two of its points, it represents Satan;
and when it elevates one of its points only it
represents the Saviour, goodness, and virtue."
--From an introduction to Albert Pike's Magnum
Opus, page 110, Robert Kessinger, 33rd Degree
Mason, according to Ralph Epperson.
The Devil tarot card designed by Arthur Waite (a Freemason,
Cabalist, and black majician) and Pamala Coleman Smith, in
1910. Since the Devil sports a blazing star on its forehead,
Waite evidently associated the symbol with the Devil, as in
fact many high-level Freemasons have verbally attested.
