This seven-pointed star is said to be a gift from Faerie to humans, forming a Gateway from the world of Faerie to our mortal world.

Each point on the star represents a path for the Higher Self to prepare for entrance into Faerie.  The seven points have been said to be the seven directions of North, South, East, West, Above, Below, and Within, or to conform to the magical elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Light, Life, and Magic.

The seven-pointed star not only embodies these magical qualities for meditation and enlightenment, but is also a powerful warding device against evil.
