Many Jews and Christians have been deceived by Jewish Kabbalists who would have them believe that the six-pointed star is a Jewish symbol. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is not a Jewish symbol, but an occult symbol. The six-pointed star is a hexagram – a curse mark – no matter what name it may have: the Star of David, Solomon’s Seal, Double Triangle, Shield of David, etc.  When the occult practitioner puts a curse on someone, he uses the hexagram!

It is not our goal to condemn the Jewish people, but to condemn the six-pointed star, a curse mark.

The 6-pointed star is not a Jewish symbol, but an Egyptian symbol which Israel adopted in the wilderness due to their apostasy.

  • Acts 7:37-43 “This is that Moses…to whom our fathers wold not obey, but thrust him from them, and IN THEIR HEARTS TURNED BACK AGAIN INTO EGYPT… And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifices unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the HOST OF HEAVEN: as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to Me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.”
  • Amos 5:26-27 “But ye have born the tabernacle of your Moloch, and Chiun (Remphan) your images, the STAR OF YOUR GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord…”
  • The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia declares that the SIX-POINTED STAR…according to the Rosicrucians…was known to the ancient Egyptians.” (Graham, p. 13)
  • “SIX TRIANGLES…is the Egyptian hieroglyphic for the …Land of the Spirits.” (Churchward, p. 177)
  • “Ancient Egyptian Seal of Solomon” (Churchward, p. 188)
  • “In the Astro-Mythology of the Egyptians, we find belief in the first man-god (Horus I) …and his death and resurrection as Amsu”
  • “This (6-pointed star) was the first sign or hieroglyphic of Amsu”
  • “Amsu – the risen Horus – was the first man-god risen in spiritual form.” (Churchward, p. 3, 65, 38)

The six pointed star is associated with the worship of Saturn.  Therefore, the beast is Saturn (Satan) and his mark is the 6- pointed star.

  • Acts 7:43 – Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
  • Amos 5:26-27 – But ye have born the tabernacle of your Moloch, and Chiun (Remphan) your images, the STAR OF YOUR GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord…

The mark of Cain was worshiped by the Israelites in the wilderness as the star of Remphan, which Strong’s Concordance identifies as Chiun:

  • Strong’s #4481 - Rhemphan {hrem-fan’} by incorrect transliteration for a word of Hebrew origin 3594; n pr m AV – Remphan 1; 1 Remphan = “the shrunken (as lifeless)” 1) the name of an idol worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the wilderness.
  • Strong’s #3594 - Kiyuwn {kee-yoon’} from 3559; n pr dei AV – Chiun 1; 1 Chiun = “an image” or “pillar” 1) probably a statue of the Assyrian-Babylonian god of the planet Saturn and used to symbolize Israelite apostasy.

Both Chiun and Saturn are identified as Cain

  • “The god of time was Chium in Egypt, or Saturn…and Chium is the same as Cain.” - Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine (897:390)
  •  N.B. Chium is an alternative spelling of Chiun: “…Chium, Chiun kiyyun, khiyun (Hebrew)…” - Theosophical Glossary (898)
  • “Chiun is sometimes called Kaiwan, or spelled Khiun, and means star. The star of Saturn was a god… Sakkuth and Kaiwan or Chiun are objects of idolatrous worship and are Assyrian gods. In Akkadian texts both names mean the planet or star, Saturn.” (Graham, The Six-Pointed Star, pp. 28-29)
  • This is perhaps the oldest form of idolatry practiced by the ancients. According to Wisdom xiii. 2, the observation of the stars in the East very early led the people to regard the planets and the fixed stars as gods. The religion of the ancient Egyptians is known to have consisted preeminently of sun-worship. Moses sternly warned the Israelites against worshiping the sun, moon, stars, and all the host of heaven (Deut. iv. 19, xvii. 3); it may be said that the prohibition of making and worshiping any image of that which is in heaven above (Ex. xx. 4; Deut. 5:8) implies also the stars and the other celestial bodies. The Israelites fell into this kind of idolatry, and as early as the time of Amos they had the images of Siccuth and Chiun, “the stars of their god” (Amos v. 26, R. V.); the latter name is generally supposed to denote the planet Saturn. That the kingdom of Israel fell earlier than that of Judah is stated (II Kings xvii. 16) to have been due, among other causes, to its worshiping the host of heaven. But the kingdom of Judah in its later period seems to have out-done the Northern Kingdom in star-worship.  (The Jewish Encyclopedia, Star-Worship, p., 527)

Since Chiun and Cain are linked with Saturn, the planetary name for Satan, the mark of Cain was the mark of Saturn, a six pointed star.

  • Strong’s #7014 - Qayin {kah’-yin} the same as 7013 (with a play upon the affinity to 07069); TWOT – 2017,2016 AV – Cain 17, Kenite 1; 18 n pr m Cain = “possession” 1) eldest son of Adam and Eve and the first murderer having murdered his brother Abel n pr gent Kenite = “smiths” 2) the tribe from which the father-in-law of Moses was a member and which lived in the area between southern Palestine and the mountains of Sinai .

The Kenites who claim to have descended from Cain wore the mark of the Tau Cross, the letter of Saturn, on their foreheads.

  •  “In this overlapping form [the Star of David] is the mark of the double messiah: the priestly … messiah and the kingly…messiah. As such it is the only true sign of Jesus, and it carries the extra meaning as being the representative of the BRIGHT STAR OF DAVID’S LINE THAT AROSE IN THE MORNING. If the Star of David is a symbol of the unified messiah-ship of Jesus, it should be the mark of Christianity. Then the question has to be, what is the symbol of Judaism? The answer is the cross. This is the mark of the ‘TAU’ and it is this shape of cross upon which Jesus was crucified. The TAU was the mark of Yahweh…the Kenites bore ON THEIR FOREHEADS long before Moses came across them in the wilderness… ” - The Hiram Key (162:140-141)
  • “TAU… [is the] letter of Saturn…” Israel Regardie, The Golden Dawn (153:215)

The Chaldean number for Saturn is 666, suggesting that the mark of Cain was a prototype of the mark of the beast—the six-pointed star received by those who will worship the god Saturn during the Golden Age of Saturn, the occult millennium (which will be shortened to 3 1/2 years). Some Jewish sources also say the mark of Cain was the Seal of Solomon or Star of David. (See: The Six-Pointed Star: It’s Origin & Usage)

In ancient pagan mythology, Saturn ruled over the pre-Flood kingdom of Atlantis and became the divine ancestor of all earthly patriarchs and kings.

  • “Chronos, or Saturn, Dionysos, Hyperion, Atlas, Hercules, were all connected with ‘a great Saturnian continent;’ they were kings that ruled over countries on the western shores of the Mediterranean, Africa and Spain. One account says: ‘Hyperion, Atlas, and Saturn, or Chronos, were sons of Uranos, who reigned over a great kingdom composed of countries around the western part of the Mediterranean, with certain islands in the Atlantic. Hyperion succeeded his father, and was then killed by the Titans. The kingdom was then divided between Atlas and Saturn –Atlas taking Northern Africa, with the Atlantic islands, and Saturn the countries on the opposite shore of the Mediterranean to Italy and Sicily.’ (Baldwin’s Prehistoric Nations,” p. 357.)
  • “The period of Saturn’s government was sung in later days by poets as a happy time, when sorrows were unknown, when innocence, freedom, and gladness reigned throughout the land in such a degree as to deserve the title of the Golden Age.” (Murray’s Mythology,” p. 32.)

The Six-Pointed Star is engraved on the Talisman of Saturn which is used in ritual magic TALISMAN OF SATURN

  • “On the first face is engraved…a pentagram or a star with five points. On the other side is engraved a bull’s head enclosed in a SIX-POINTED STAR, and surrounded by letters composing the name REMPHA, THE PLANETARY GENIUS OF SATURN, according to the alphabet of the Magi.” (Christian, p. 304-5)

“Theophrastus Paracelsus revived, in the XVIth century, the ancient doctrine of Talismans, which he claimed to be able to use successfully in the treatment of illnesses and accidents. This medical doctrine, derived from the Cabala, or secret tradition of the Jewish rabbis, was said to be borrowed from the ancient occult sciences of Chaldea and Egypt. The talisman (tsilmenaia) signifies an image, a figure, and was engraved in the form of an emblem or symbol on metals consecrated to the genii of the seven planets. This magical task had to be carried out at a fixed time of a certain day, with the firm intention of attracting to the talisman the beneficent influence of the genius which was invoked, whether for health or any other protective measures…

“Now, the name SATURN in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters, thus – Stur [ed. Star?]. This name contains exactly the Apocalyptic number.” (Hislop, p. 269)

  S = 060 
  T = 400 
  U = 006 
   R = 200 
     = 666

Sri Aurobindo, a Hindu guru well-known in the New Age affirms that SATURN IS REPRESENTED BY THE NUMBER 6… because the planet Saturn is 6th of the nine planets in distance from the sun.” (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 68)

“This is the sign with which the Magus DECORATED HIMSELF when he has reached the HIGHEST DEGREE OF INITIATION” (Christian, p. 110-111)

The six-pointed star was used in mystery religion initiation rites.

“In an ancient book on numbers the INITIATE is defined as ‘the one who has experienced and expressed 666 and found it naught; who has dropped the 6 and become the 66, and thus found himself on the Way; later, again, he drops the 6 and becomes the PERFECTED 6-FORM, the instrument and expression of spirit.” (Bailey: Rays and Initiations, p. 80)

Seal of Solomon as used in Paul Christian’s Histoire de la Magie, 1870

King Solomon reintroduced the 6-Pointed Star to the Kingdom of Israel.  The Talisman of Saturn became known as the Seal of Solomon.

…Solomon’s blatant idolatry had angered the Lord to the point of bringing about the division of the kingdom of Israel. Part of the evidence is the six-pointed star, which was called the Seal of Solomon from then on.  Let us investigate those false gods with which he was involved. First mentioned was ASHTORETH, otherwise called ASTARTE, the word meaning STAR.”

II Kings 23:13 is explicit: ‘And the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites, and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did the king defile.’…
“King Solomon built an altar for Ashtoreth, worshipped her, and also practiced Moloch rituals. It was at this time that the HEXAGRAM OR SIX-POINTED STAR CAME TO BE CALLED THE SEAL OF SOLOMON…
“…the Seal of Solomon or six-pointed star, or hexagram…was considered an ALL-POWERFUL TALISMAN especially when accompanied by the Hebrew Yod…It was also combined with the Tau cross, or Crux Ansanta in the center…
“…How do the dictionaries define ‘hexagram’? ‘The root word hex is defined as (1) an evil spell, (2) a witch (v.t. to bewitch)’ (Funk & Wagnall’s Dictionary)…
“Solomon’s Seal was accepted as occult by the occult world. King Solomon was deeply involved in witchcraft and occultism. According to The Sorcerer’s Handbook, ‘King Solomon, traditionally known as an arch magician, used a spell to banish infernal beings sent by the king of demons to extract human hearts… [The names of the demons are then given.]’…  (Dr. O.J. Graham, The Six Pointed Star,  24-5, 29, 32)2.


6 Points, 6 Equilateral Triangles and 6 Sides of the Hexagon All Translating in 666

The Seal of Solomon is a graphical representation of 666, the number of the Beast, and Solomon is the man whose number is 666:

  • “This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.” (Rev. 13:18 ESV) Emphasis added
  • Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, besides that which came from the explorers and from the business of the merchants, and from all the kings of the west and from the governors of the land.” (1 Kings 10:14 ESV) Emphasis added

“How do the dictionaries define ‘hexagram’? ‘The root word hex is defined as (1) an evil spell, (2) a witch (v.t. to bewitch)’ (Funk & Wagnall’s Dictionary)…

Solomon’s Seal was accepted as occult by the occult world.  King Solomon was deeply involved in witchcraft and occultism.  According to The Sorcerer’s Handbook, ‘King Solomon, traditionally known as an arch magician, used a spell to banish infernal beings sent by the king of demons to extract human hearts… [The names of the demons are then given.]’…  (Graham: 24-5, 29, 32)2.

Seal of Solomon from Eliphas Levi’s Transcendental Magic

Interestingly enough you will notice that the emblem is made up of three pairs of triangles with their apexes touching.  Each pair collectively represents the number 6, which qualifies the whole symbol as a graphical representation of 666.” (Sects, Symbolism & Mark of the Beast)

More on Saturn Worship


The Seal of Solomon’s Mystical Meaning

According to Occultist Frederick Goodman the Seal of Solomon is so powerful that some even suggest that “the secret symbol” of Goethe’s Faust is the magical Seal of Solomon.

For Faust, the ‘Seal Unveils all Nature’s powers as with a mystic thrill’, and even less proficient magicians regard the Seal as one of the most powerful and meaningful of all magical symbols. This explains why it is found is such diverse sources as grimoire, designed to se out she supposed rules of demonic conjuration, magical spells designed for enchantment, and even theological texts and buildings where it is designed to reach the highest for of ecclesiastical symbolism, as for example in the superb windows of the cathedral at Palma, Mallorca”. (Frederick Goodman, Magical Symbolism, p. 81, 1989).

The Jewish Encyclopaedia describes the Seal of Solomon or better known as Magen David as a magic sign used to invoke angels and demons:

It stands to reason that the secrets of the theurgic Cabala are not lightly divulged; and yet the Testament of Solomon recently brought to light the whole system of conjuration of angels and demons, by which the evil spirits were exorcised; even the magic sign or seal of King Solomon, known to the medieval Jew as the Magen Dawid, has been resurrected (see Conybeare, in “Jew. Quart. Rev.” xi. 1-45; also Exorcism).

“Solomon’s Seal. The symbolical double triangle, adopted by the Theosophical Society and by many Theosophists. …the pentagram is the triple triangle–the six-pointed star being the hexalp ha (See ‘Pentacle’… The way a triangle points determines its meaning. If upwards, it means the male element and divine fire; downwards, the female and the waters of matter; upright, but with a bar across the top, air and astral light; downwards, with a bar–the earth or gross matter, etc.” – (H.P.
