Before you start reading about the Stars of David presented on these homepages first let me define what a Star of David is and what type of Stars I have studied. There is some confusion in this matter. Though it is true that there is essentially only one geometric formation called the Star of David, what goes into the star or forms the star, whether planets, Arabian Parts, asteroids, or any other astrological or astronomical points has a great effect on the interpretations for that Star of David, the impact it will have, and who or what will be impacted. There are many different combinations and there are no simple answers since the appearance of the Stars and their interpretations are fairly recent. Astrologers are still learning about their significance and I include myself in that learning process.
WHAT IS A STAR OF DAVID?
A Star of David is a geometric configuration that has 6 equidistant points within a 360 degree radius or two interlocking triangles, one facing up and the other facing down. It looks exactly like the Jewish Star many would recognize and it is historically linked to King David who actually had a Star of David in his natal astrological chart formed by the planets. This was amazing since there were only 7 known planets at the time, 6 of which had to be in the correct position. The commonly called Star of David is not limited to the Jewish faith and the Kabbalah however, as it also appears is the Buddhist, Theosophical, and various other Eastern and Western traditions. It is fair to say that it is a symbol of integration (linking heaven and earth, as above, so below) and spirituality. When a Star of David occurs, you cannot see the Star in the night sky because the 6 points surround the earth 360 degrees around. This means that half of the planets are below the horizon. Also some of the planets in our solar system are not visible with the human eye.
TYPES OF STARS
Planetary Stars - In the Stars that I have studied since 1990, the two interlocking triangles are formed solely by the planets in our solar system along with the Sun and the Moon. These planetary Stars of David I have written about extensively in these pages, and I believe planetary Stars have global impact. For example, since 1990, three stars have been war stars - the one in 1990 that appeared directly after Iraq invaded Kuwait signaling the Gulf War, the 2001 Star occurred seven days before the destruction of the World Trade Center Twin Towers that led to the War in Afghanistan, and the November 2002 Star preceded the War in Iraq four months later. All of these Stars had difficult squares to the Sun. In 1990, Mars squared the Sun, in 2001 both Saturn and Pluto squared the Sun, and in 2002 Uranus squared the Sun. Planetary Stars have global impact and many times the effect of the Star, like a solar eclipse will last from one Star to the next.
Personal or local Stars - There are times when five planets almost form a Star, but one point is missing. In these situations an individual can use a specific time set for his or her locality to form the Star of David with the Ascendant, the Midheaven, or Part of Fortune creating the final point. I have worked with these charts and my feeling is that they impact the individual who is electing the time and they are good for personal and spiritual development. They do not have global impact as they are locality based and individually created. I do not write about those personal or local starts in these pages. I focus only on planetary Stars.
Planetary/asteroid Stars - Sometimes a Star of David is formed by five planets and an asteroid, most notably Chiron. This is a hybrid Star. It is not totally planetary, but also not locality based or individually oriented. It does not have global impact in my opinion, but it does have significance, especially for those who have natal connections to the Star.
