Is it the Elf Star or the Faerie Star? And Who First Adopted the Seven-Pointed Star as the Elf Star?

greenstarbluegrayweb
“Since the five-pointed star represented Mankind…, Arwen Eveningstar [of the EQD]
added wings to that figure (so one ray for the head, two for the arms,
two for the legs, and two for the wings) and thus came up
with a seven-pointed star to represent the elves and
the evolution of mankind into the Angelic Realms.
Obviously, due to the wings, it represents our faerie kindred as well.”

Really, it is both. We call the seven-pointed acute-angled star the “Elven Star” because it was our sisters Arwen and Elanor, founders of the Elf Queen’s Daughters, EQD, (of which Zardoa of the Silver Elves was a member in their Carbondale, Il., vortex/coven, the Elves of the Southern Woodlands) who in the 70s were the first to adopt this star to represent the elves and started using it in the letters they wrote and circulated to elfin folk (see our Silver Elves books Elf Magic Mail, volumes 1 & 2, in which we have reproduced the original contents of those letters and described the graphics that adorned them and have also added our commentary upon the letters and the sisterhood.)

Our sisters Arwen and Elanor first conceived (in this lifetime) of using this star for the elven and put them upon the EQD letters on numerous occasions. Since the five-pointed star represented Mankind (inspired in Arwen’s mind by Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man), Arwen Eveningstar added wings to that figure (so one ray for the head, two for the arms, two for the legs, and two for the wings) and thus came up with a seven-pointed star to represent the Elves and the evolution of humankind into the Angelic Realms. Obviously, due to the wings, it represents our faerie kindred as well. In fact, the very first letter of the Elf Magic Mail shared by the EQD that had this symbol showed a five-pointed star with wings called “The Winged Star.” Thus from the very beginning the idea existed beneath the surface that this was also the Faerie Star. So it represents all Fae folk, elves, pixies, faeries, brownies and others and all are welcome to use it.

We have, for our own part, worn the elven star as an amulet for over forty years. We have at least a half dozen variations of it. From a very small elf star less than an half inch from side to side that we have upon one of our magical elven wands that we created, to a necklace piece that was made for us individually that is about three and a half inches in diameter. We even have one, about two inches across that comes from Jerusalem. We also have one that our sister Loriel gave us as a birthday gift that is a seven-pointed flower. And Arwen, Elanor, Loriel had a house south of Half Moon Bay that had a huge seven-pointed elf star, about six or seven feet in diameter, that was painted on the side of their home. We lived with them for over a month in the late 1970’s at this somewhat Rivendell like abode.

We Silver Elves carried on the tradition that the EQD created, putting the Elven Star on our own The Magical Elven Love Letters (see volumes one, two and three) throughout the 80s and 90s that we sent out to our elven and otherkin kin and over the years it apparently caught on. It would be nice, to our minds, if our kindred knew where it came from as it is part of modern elven and faerie history, but in the long run, it doesn’t really matter.

What does matter is that this star speaks to the heart of the elfae (the elven and faerie folk) and it is this reason that it has been taken up and carried on and used again and again to represent us. And surely, this would not have happened if in fact the elven/faerie star didn’t have something ancient to it. It sings to our hearts and imaginations because it truly connects us to our ancient kindred and it resonates in our Collective Unconscious. Otherwise it would have gone the way of so many things that have been put out there but passed by and forgotten. It calls to us. It reminds us of who we truly are and that is what truly matters. For it is the Elven-Faerie Star and we are all the kindred that it shines upon.

Photo above of the first drawn Elven 7 pointed star (bottom right corner): “Winged Star,” by the Elf Queen’s Daughters that appeared on one of their letters circulated in the 70s to their many vortexes/covens (as well as putting the 7 pointed star on many other of their Elf Magic Mail letters). Read both The Silver Elves commentary about the first appearance of this star as well as the explanation of the meaning of the Elven Star that was published and circulated through Elf Magic Mail in the 1970s to the EQD vortexes/covens.
Here is the text to the first paragraph of the above letter:

“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 and fate!” Click here and then scroll down to read the full letter and commentary

What sort of elf, faerie or other are you?
For years various kindred have asked us, the Silver Elves, to help them figure this out. Now we’ve created a questionnaire to help us do so. This is our gift to you. Simply follow the link & the directions. http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html 

Also we hope you enjoy the following meditation on the 7 pointed acute elven star, the elven-faerie star, that we Silver Elves created and published in Circle Network News in the 80s. You may find other versions that people have slightly adapted from this one to fit their own cosmology, but this is the original one and was created and first performed as a seven day meditation birthday gift for Zardoa Silverstar by Silver Flame, from elven heart to elven heart, opening the Gateway to Faerie. To be clear, while we love our original one here, we also find the adaption meditations and ray point meanings that others have done through the years to be quite magical as well, and the faeries particularly have made some adaptations to this meditation that are quite creative and beautiful indeed.
