The septagram, or Faery Star, is also used instead of or with the Pentagram,
by many Faery and Celtic-based traditions.
The seven points represent
the Sun, the Forest, the Sea, Magick, the Moon, the Wind, and Spirit.
The following are the seven points of “Elven” or “Faery” Magick.
Point 1: The Sun.
There is apparent fire elemental symbolism here,
but also a more specific symbolism relevant to the septagram.
The sun is the primary force of life and creation on Earth or most any other world.
Without it, elven and human life as we know it would not exist.
Point 2: The Wood.
Most elves feel a deep connection to forests and woods in general.
Trees are considered kin, cousins and brothers.
Elves can see a deep secret hidden in the branches of trees and understand the power and nature of trees and woods.
There is also earth elemental symbolism here.
Point 3: The Sea.
Many elves also have a connection to the sea,
and water elemental powers are very strong naturally.
Some may be reluctant to know the sea or feel it,
perhaps forgetting the ocean as one of the great forces of many worlds.
Point 4: The Magic.
Magic is integral to the lives of all elves,
whether it be the simple but profound magic of a snowflake
or the more involved (for the elf perhaps)
magic of rhymes, runes, visions, and such.
It is not only a matter of understanding magic, but of living magic.
Point 5: The Moon.
Just as the sun is responsible for our existence,
so too does the moon have almost as important a role.
Consider how different Earth would be without the moon:
to light the dark night skies; to affect the weather and tides with its gravity
(it is in many ways a contributor to the dynamic nature of our weather patterns);
and even the magical and physiological effects upon us and others.
Without its effects, the cycles of life in our oceans might not have occurred or, at least, not have occurred as we have known them to have done.
The way life on Earth exists now is due directly to the moon.
Point 6: The Wind.
Many elves also have a strong connection to the wind and air elementals in general.
At the same time, the wind is responsible for helping germinate the world's plants and forests
--it is the essence of weather, and so much more.
Point 7: Connection.
Ultimately, elves must remember the idea of Connection, of our connection to ourselves, others, the world, the land, reality, magic, and the universe.
We are creatures of connection, and our power is tied to our connections to all things.
This point is the aspiration perhaps of the other points,
just as the fifth point of spirit is the aspiration of the pentagram and humanity.
Throughout the world, spiritual traditions acknowledge that human beings are composed
in accordance with nature and made in the image of the cosmos
