I have been investigating the symbols used by secret societies and mystery cults to try and establish the existence of a hidden seam of golden knowledge about the Dark Star.
In DarkStar19 I began an examination of Alchemy and showed how a standard astrological interpretation of this esoteric school of thought leaves a lot to be desired.
The Blazing Star
The Freemasons have a tremendous interest in a 'Blazing Star' that is said to represent Sothis, or Sirius.
Combine this with the Freemason's worship of the Divine Being as represented by a 'bright, shining light in the East' that breaks through the darkness of the Lodge, and one can begin to piece together a common strand. Although connected with Sirius, this light is an altogether different entity.
The alchemical image shown here contains Masonic symbols (4).
The Equilateral Triangle
The equilateral triangle is an important symbol for Freemasons also.
"Whenever or wherever this symbol is found, in any form of record or inscription, it is either in reference to, or represents, the ancient Trinity and Heaven... The Truine Godhead of the Egyptians consisted of "Shu, Set and Horus" (6).
So the Freemasons have inherited a very ancient series of symbols, and Alchemy demonstrates that this Masonic equilateral triangle has some sort of celestial significance.
