Trivial extension of symbolic compositions theory re: stars

This is how I’d read stars with different numbers of points, based purely on shit that’s come into my head for no reason over the years. I’m aware that ne’er-do-wells like Aleister Crowley came up with similar systems, but I’ve never read up on them.

Regardless of the number of points, the N-pointed star is essentially a star. “Star” is the noun part of the symbol and the number of points is the modifier. So a six-pointed star can be read as “5-thing of 6-thing” or “Star (symbol 5) of Wave (symbol 6),” and would be interchangeable with a symbol where a five-pointed star is encapsulated within some sort of wavy motif, or if the star itself has ripples across its surface (these are both ways of applying the 6th symbol as an adjective to the noun “star”). Similarly, a seven-pointed star can be read as “Star of Jagged-thing.”

Jumping to the loose association bit (see original post), that means a seven-pointed star could be read pessimistically as destructive alchemy or read optimistically as cathartic creativity. A six-pointed star (the one we’re obviously interested in) could be read pessimistically as cultural unification (i.e. globalism, the Philosopher’s Stone) or optimistically as radiant creativity.

Since Ken posted this meme while I was writing this up and thinking about it, I may as well decode the AT Field. It’s a sharp-line division (symbol 1) made out of trauma (symbol 7), so it’s “violent division,” i.e. traumatizing, ego-protecting distinction (between the Other and me).
