Hexagram: A six-pointed star usually formed by two interwoven triangles. Today, it is frequently seen as a symbol of Judaism (having replaced the previous symbols of the pentagram and seven-branched candlestick) and is known as the Shield or Star of David (Mogen David). A popular interpretation of the symbol is that the triangle with one point down represents God reaching for humanity, while the triangle pointing up represents humans striving to reach for the Divine.
Mystically, the downward-pointing triangle represents the feminine powers while the triangle pointing up represents the masculine powers. Thus, it is a symbol of mystical union, a Western version of the famous Yin-Yang symbol of Taoism. Magically, each point represents the astrological powers of one of the planets visible to the unaided eye. According to the book The Golden Dawn, by Israel Regardie, Saturn is at the point at the top, the Moon is at the point at the bottom, Jupiter is at the upper right point, Venus is at the lower right point, Mars is at the upper left point, Mercury is at the lower left point, and the center is given to the fire of the Sun. These attributions are used in many rituals, the most famous (due to its original publication by Regardie in the late 1930s) being the Greater Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram.Donald Michael Kraig

1) A six-pointed star consisting of two superimposed triangles, one whose apex is up and the other apex down. The upward triangle is masculine, the downward is feminine—together they symbolize union of energies or sexual congress. In ritual magic they are used to invoke or to banish planetary forces.
2) One of sixty-four combinations of long and broken lines used in the I Ching (or Yi King) system of Chinese divination that are traditionally determined by throwing Yarrow Sticks, or by means of coins (heads, tails), dice, dominoes or other means.
