Faerie Fairy Eleven Star Information And Lore

Faerie – Fairy - Elven Star:

Seven Pointed Stars, called "Faerie or Elven Stars" represent a gift from Faerie to humans to bridge the understanding between the Mortal human realm and that of Faerieland. The 7 pointed star is known as a gateway symbol, a Gate or entrance between our world and that of Faery, the Otherworld. Each point on the star represents a gateway or path of the Higher Self to prepare one for entrance into Faery.

The seven pointed star has a few names: septagram, septacle, Elven Star or Fairy Star. The number seven corresponds to the spirit realm, which is why this symbol is associated with elves or fairies. It is also a representation of those who believe in Faeries, consider themselves to be Fae, or blessed by the Fae.

This seven-pointed star (septagram) represents a belief in fairies and magic. Each of the seven points is believed to have a different meaning, although there are several common interpretations.
Some say each point represents a pathway, or the "seven rays of manifestation of the Higher Self."

1 - power, personal will and determination
2 - unconditional love, wisdom and growth

3 - knowledge and intelligence

4 - harmony and tranquillity

5 - the powers of mind and science

6 - devotion and honesty

7 - magic

Another premise is that the points signify the seven magical elements - earth, air, fire, water, light, life and magic - or the inner and outer elements - earth, air, fire, water, heaven, earth and self. A further suggestion is that they represent the seven directions - north, south, east, west, above, below and within.

The number seven is believed to be a magical or lucky number, and can be used to indicate appreciation and knowledge of fairies.
