Black Magic And The Pentagram
All Research By Bessie Totten
There are five elements on Earth that we all need to survive,and indeed the Earth itself requires to function, which make up the sacred pentagram. I will let the great Manley P Hall explain it as he does so much more eloquently than me, but I just want to add my observation of what has been happening in America in 2017.
As you see in the text, to pervert the pentagram, as in breaking it or inverting it, (it should always have the point at the top) is used to create black magic.
The pentagram in America has been broken so much it’s almost a straight line!
This is how easy it is to put literally millions of people under the spell of the Black Magicians…….
In symbolism, an inverted figure always signifies a perverted power. The average person does not even suspect the occult properties of emblematic pentacles. On this subject the great Paracelsus has written:
“No doubt many will scoff at the seals, their characters and their uses, which are described in these books, because it seems incredible to them that metals and characters which are dead should have any power and effect. Yet no one has ever proved that the metals and also the characters as we know them are dead, for the salts, sulphur, and quintessences of metals are the highest preservatives of human life and are far superior to all other simples.”
(Translated from the original German.)
The black magician cannot use the symbols of white magic without bringing down upon himself the forces of white magic, which would be fatal to his schemes. He must therefore distort the hierograms so that they typify the occult fact that he himself is distorting the principles for which the symbols stand.
Black magic is not a fundamental art; it is the misuse of an art. Therefore it has no symbols of its own. It merely takes the emblematic figures of white magic, and by inverting and reversing them signifies that it is left-handed.
A good instance of this practice is found in the pentagram, or five-pointed star, made of five connected lines.
This figure is the time-honored symbol of the magical arts, and signifies the five properties of the Great Magical Agent, the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body.
By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man not only may master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself.
The pentagram is used extensively in black magic, but when so used its form always differs in one of three ways: The star may be broken at one point by not permitting the converging lines to touch; it may be inverted by having one point down and two up; or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths.
When used in black magic, the pentagram is called the “sign of the cloven hoof,” or the footprint of the Devil. The star with two points upward is also called the “Goat of Mendes,” because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat’s head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies the fall of the Morning Star.” from “The Secret Teachings of All Ages – Illustrated & The Secret of the Ages (Body and Soul ~ Mini-Anthology Book 9)” by Manly P. Hall, Robert Collier, Matthew Vossler
