writing from Elf Magic Mail Book 2, pages 41-44, transcribed from
original letters in 1970s:
The Winged Star (top left corner descending toward middle page)
*An image of this letter is on the following page 42.
1. (BOTTOM RIGHT ABOVE ADDRESS) A SEVEN-POINTED ELVEN STAR, THE TOP
POINT WITH RADIATION LINES ABOUT IT LIKE THE SUN, THE TWO POINTS ON
EITHER SIDE WITH FEATHERED WINGS, THE TWO LOWER SIDE POINTS WITH THE
GLYPH OF THE SUN ON THE LEFT, AND THE GLYPH OF THE MOON ON THE RIGHT,
AND THE TWO BOTTOM POINTS BECOMING TALON-ED BIRD LEGS. A TRIPARTITE
YIN/YANG/YING IS IN THE CENTER OF THE STAR.
2. (BOTTOM LEFT CORNER) SPIRAL GALAXIES.
3. (MID PAGE BETWEEN IMAGE 1 AND 2) I CHING HEXAGRAM #1 THE CREATIVE
CHANGING IN THE SECOND LINE TO #13 FELLOWSHIP WITH MEN.
FROM: ELVEN SISTERS (BOTTOM RIGHT)
THE ELVEN STAR IS WINGED, FAIR KINDRETH
. it is a true expansion,
relatively and ideally, of the pentacle or five pointed star. Of course
all geometric figures have both literal and occult significance; yet,
for the elves, the seven pointed elven star contains foci that are
quite unique to the elves as well as universal focus points that are
applicable to the ten thousand modes of manifestation. Our winged-star
focuses the elves upon 7 planes of being (physical, astral-sensual,
mental, buddhic, atmic, para-nirvanic, nirvanic), which it activates
7 chakric and/or sensory centers (vision, homing, auric, auditory,
touch,taste, smell). Men and wimin are not functionally interested
in the 6th and 7th senses, because of various cultural
and evolutionary pathways that have become paramount in their present
social pre-occupations. For the elven-kindreth the auric-proprioceptor
and the homing senses are of equal value and/or significance relative
to the other five senses. Tis our ancient peoples that
now begin to evolve together, rather than separate. Seven senses,
Seven Chakras, Seven Stars, Seven planes of being are our destiny
(beginning left of title and concluding beneath paragraph 1)
below is an evolving mass of organic (for the elves everything is
organic) potential. We may or may not perceive of the millions of
stars within this mass in terms of our humin concepts of color and
energy (the seven colors of a simple spectrum); however, in modesty,
we note the vast distances between galaxies and the minute or miniscule
existence of even the Varda that we love and serve. If we mutually
respect and hold in awe the vast, vast cosmos, perhaps that same integrated
cosmic-universe will find us (in total Varda) not so very belligerent
an embryo of life and love. We may seek out our beings upon higher
planes of mind .. we may embrace with our minds an elven star of seven
perceptions, rather than a limited and polarized star of five senses.
We find the combination of seven completes an inner cycle true to
our individual and mutual elven nature (singular). Tis our tao that
demands that we make SEVEN our communion within our-own-selves.
And in the
millions of years ahead and behind us .. we make form without boundary,
without care, without thought of having somewhere to go. The child-womon
says from within us all, I have no-where to go, nor anything
to do .. but complete the steps of bringing the rings of truth to
man and womon .. so that my very humanness shall be useful to all
sentient life upon the body of Fair Varda, and by and by, may I freely
join with others of my kindreth in devanic flight, swirling and beginning
a new vortex of being upon planes of which I may now only know wonder
above and concluding between images 2 and 3)
O tis true She grew us this way, fair kindreth; and in modesty,
we must admit that we manage to love every moment of it together.
The only sadness is elves alone. Surely, our Varda would not have
it so; and yet, with active homing and auric merging upon the wing
(by night and by day) .. is an elf ever really alone? Yet with my
eternal kindreth, I am both alone and content and together with mine
own true love.
(beginning between images 1 and 3 and concluding beneath image 3 and
between 1 and 2)
By my inner homing, I may perceive of and find my kindreth everywhere.
By my auric extensions of mine-own-true-selves,
I may freely take within my own-space my eternal sister-lover-water-brothers,
merged, sharing, reaching out together into a universe of evolving
life. REACHING OUT WITH ETHERIC EYES AND FINGERS OF LOVE, BY ELBERETH
.. A ELBERETH GILTHONIEL.
COMMENTARY BY THE SILVER ELVES:
would like to bring particular attention to the drawing of the winged
7 pointed star in this letter, which these sisters were the first
to draw, use and adopt as the elven star (now also called the faerie
star). Viewing the 2 legs and 2 arms and head of the human represented
by the five points of the traditional 5 pointed pentacle, these sisters
added the two wings of the elves as the other two points for a seven
pointed star representing elfin evolution and spirituality.
Once again in this letter, we see the sisters incorporating Buddhist,
Hindu and Taoist philosophy with modern science. We elves are an eclectic
folk and turn every worthy idea, technique and philosophy to our own
ends. The Universe is one and we know our selves to be one with
it. And note again that now the sisters speak of Varda and Elbereth
where previously they wrote of Mother Earth.
For more on the many, many meanings and occult associations of the
number 7 see Blavatskys Occultism of the Secret Doctrine, which
has a much on this.
