When a man attains this degree of development, he becomes the hexagram. The sexual organs. male or female. become the sixth paint which is missing in the pentagram.
There were then a series of pictures in which the relations between the downward-pointing triangle and the upward-pointing triangle in the hexagram were demonstrated. It was noted that the forces of the two triangles are complimentary and act in opposition to each other when allowed to. They tend to push each other apart, causing Dispersion.
It was then shown that for the triangle to unite into the hexagram in man, they have to be interlocked with each other. Otherwise, the downward-tending emotional forces (Luna, Mars, Jupiter) and the upward-tending mental forces (Saturn, Mercury, Venus) will act in such a way as to disrupt each other’s effects. There was another series of pictures next which rapidly went through all the possible combinations of forces that can be derived from the hexagram.

There are exactly 12 external sides to the Star of David. Numerous online sources contend that each of these 12 sides represent both a tribe of Israel and a sign of the Zodiac. Imagine projecting outward from each of the Star of David‘s 12 sides all the way up into the stars above the earth. Thus, each side of the Star of David symbolically represents the approximate position of each of the 12 traditional Constellations seen in the night sky. Here is a new diagram called the Star of David Zodiac which matches the Star of David 12 Sides to the Zodiac’s 12 Constellations in the most correct manner possible:
The connections are quite simple-
- 12 Sides of the Star of David = 12 Signs of the Zodiac
- 7 Planets of Astrology = 7 Parts of the Star of David
Classical astrology and the Hexagram, unsurprisingly, fit very well together. The astrological associations are shown above, with the twelve signs of the zodiac lying in order within the six points of the Hexagram and the six vertices between them. The Seven Planets of classical astrology correspond to the six points of the Hexagram and its center.

Astronomy and Pythagorean Mathematics? This is at best A VERY SPECULATIVE IDEA: The Star of David, a six-sided star or hexagram is known among Hebrews today as Mogen David. It was also called Solomon’s Seal and consisted of two interlaced triangles.
The Star of David is appropriately called a “STAR” and – in our “very speculative” view – it represents a double-triangulation which “maps” the position of the major stars of the heavens with the major axis along the Milky Way from Sirius to Aquila. As such, the Star of David was originally the secret symbol of the stargazing priests, later adopted by the Israelite Kings David and Solomon and subsequently by the Hebrew people as a whole.
Well, it could be that it had something to do with astronomy. I had the above idea many years ago, but have really not found probative evidence to support it, so it must remain rather pure speculation for now.
