Seals of King Solomon: history and reality
Only the deaf did not hear about King Solomon and hisseals. It remains only to understand what it is and what they were created for. And for this it is necessary to penetrate into the essence of the legend, which mystical veil covers these seals and creates a tempting aura of mystery. And to be honest, what do we imagine when we say "Seals of King Solomon"? Are there any signs used in serials and horror films? Sorcerers, alchemists who are looking for a philosopher's stone? Everything is much simpler.
Seals of King Solomon. Legend
If you believe the legend, this seal wascreated by the famous king at all times to command the spirits, which in his homeland were called jinnah. And after applying this sign to the ring of gold, known to all, the king was able not only to command the genies, but also to talk with animals.
Speaking specifically about the print, then the versiondiverge. According to some assumptions, besides the seal of King Solomon on the ring, God's name and precious stones were also located. Another assumption is that instead of the divineThe name of the star was the star of David (we will dwell on this later).
At all times this seal had the mostvarious meanings and interpretations, among which was the combination in the press of Hellas, Egypt and Mesopotamia, which are uncomplicated hidden in ornaments. Christians said that the press depicted seven centuries of the history of the world, which, of course, ruled the archangels and the seven planets. The Muslims did not bother much with its meaning and simply attributed to it the qualities of making a man wiser (which, in fact, King Solomon was different). At all times these seals have been used wherever possible and impossible. Books, household items, architecture, labyrinths, ornaments and much more had a hidden or explicit seal of King Solomon.
The seal of King Solomon. How many triangles and how to draw a picture
The structure of the seal of King Solomon in modernversion has one common element - this is the star of David, which is inscribed in a circle. Between the rays of the star are points. If you believe the legend, then in their place were the precious stones. Now these are either points or other symbols that are determined by the intentions of the adepts who use the seals of King Solomon. Literally a red thread passed the letters that came to us from the time of the king's life. Accordingly, in the star of David there are two triangles, and therefore in the press, as a rule, there is a six-pointed star. But in some cases, as mentioned earlier, a seven-pointed star was used.
There is no universality
Each famous seal of King Solomon was notis universal. Its purpose was directly determined by the content that the mystic invested in writing and drawing. This image is usually applied on circles made of precious metals (or metals corresponding to the planets to which the magician refers). In the olden times they were made by hand, and now they can be purchased from masters. In this case, you will receive already specific letters, and the seal can be executed as decorations, goldfield or wall tablets made of stone. In general, most of the modern seals have already changed so much that the original in them is very difficult to see, but here the semantic load and power they have with the ages of existence have only increased.
