Setogram (faery Star)

The septogram is also know as the Faery or Elven star. It is used by some faerie traditions but is also associated with other magical traditions.

Seven is a scared number in many traditions and this star is used to represent different sets of seven things by different people. These include:

  • the seven Pleiades (stars)
  • the seven days of the week
  • the seven major Hindu chakras
  • the seven classical planets (sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn)
  • the seven notes in a diatonic music scale (white notes)
  • the seven tenants (balance, harmony, humility, learning, reincarnation, tolerance and trust)
  • the seven elements (earth, air, fire, water, above, below and within)

The number 3 is often considered to relate to heaven and the higher realms and 4 to the earth. 3+4 = 7 heaven and earth together as a whole.
