In Astrology, the Star of David is often Called the ‘King’s Star’

Some researchers have theorized that the Star of David represents the astrological chart at the time of David’s birth or anointing as king. The Star of David is also known as the “King’s Star” in astrological circles, and was undoubtedly an important astrological symbol in Zoroastrianism.

The ‘Bright Morning’ Star of David

Revelation 22: 16- ‘I, Y’shua, have sent My messenger to testify to you these things for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.’

To my knowledge, this verse in the NT is the oldest possible mention of the Maagen David, or at least the oldest source that might put the two ideas together.

Many commentators have suggested that the message of the Star of David is linked to the number seven by way of its six points surrounding the center. The number seven, of course, is key to our understanding the world as a holy creation of God…In short, the world is holy, a place in which man and everything else created in the six days has the potential to revolve and evolve around its center, its core and its Creator. The Sabbath, the seventh day every week, is a reminder of this concept.

A nSoDDaysofWeekew theory about what was actually the Seal of Solomon is to be found in a book “Le Sceau de Salomon, secret perdu de la Bible” (The Seal of Solomon, lost key of the Holy Bible, French language) by Janik Pilet. According to him, it was a source for holy inspiration used by several authors of the Old and New Testaments, and its drawing is described in the first text in the Holy Bible i.e. the creation in six days.

Star of David
—————-
(Magen David, Shield of David)- The Star of David is the primary modern emblem of the Jewish religion. How it came to be such is a matter of some debate. Legend has it that the emblem was used by the Biblical King David (hence the name Magen David, or “shield of David”). In reality, it was not associated specifically with the faith until the middle ages, when it began to appear on flags, tombstones, and synagogue decorations. It is probably not coincidental that the symbol was important to the flourishing kabbalistic tradition of the same time period. Kabbalistically, the hexagram symbolizes the six directions of space, the divine union of male and female energy, and the four elements. The Star of David is also important in the Rastafarian and Messianic Christian faiths.
