Two woven stars interlocked:
the six point star: a composite symbol of the elements
triangles with point up and down illustrating
the alchemical glyphs of Fire, Water, Air and Earth;
and the five point star of the Adam Kadmon:
the First Man
or Father Time;
Humanity in its primal,
perhaps perfected state of existence.
Together these two images represent the balance of forces:
Male (active) and Female (passive).
This is not to say that “all men are active and all women are passive”,
not at all.
In the material world,
we all contain these kinds of energies,
qualities and potential.
The terms are considered “classic” in the sense
of how our cultures perceive the world
and provided descriptions of what has been observed.
Within the glyph,
there is a blending of the two in hope to develop
a “more realistic” manifestation.
In another sense
it is the material world
(six point star with all of its elements)
and the five point star
(what we decide to do with it),
the ability of proactive choice
(the five point star).
A reminder of how we affect the world,
the power of intent,
the purpose of our actions and their result.
A reminder that our “purpose” in the world
is what we decide
rather than what is dictated by outside forces.
The Amulet is intended
to transcend the preconceived illusions
of separate religious,
sociological and philosophical differences
and blend awareness of things into a single piece.
The symbols are woven together:
just as the earth is a weaving together of awareness,
perspective and ability.
The Balanced Star Amulet
is intended for anyone to wear,
everyone who wishes to embrace a diversity and
bring balance to a troubled world.
