VMs: On the multiple religious meanings of stars in circles

Allow me to share just this one lightweight scan from the Alchimistischen
Manuskript (1550) kept in the University of Basilea (Switzerland)...
couldn't help noticing the alchemical star within its usual "magic circle",
very similar to that of f69r...

William Schnoebelen in "Mormonism's Temple of Doom", 1991, p. 47: "...this
star, when within a circle is the symbol of anti-Christ. It has 6 points, 6
angles, and an interior polygon of 6 sides hence the perfect symbol of 666.
And it exists in a stronger form... inverted, with two points up."

...and from a rather weird 'Antichrist Watch - Numerical Bible', unlikely

"Satan worshippers use a six pointed star within a circle in their coven
meetings. Evil, very evil!"


on the other hand... our f69r star is not very Solomonic, is it? (so there
isn't really an interior polygon)


"Seven is the number of unconditional love, spirituality, and mysticism. It
is symbolized by two seven-pointed stars, a triangle within a square, or a
six-pointed star within a circle with a dot in the center. In the
numerological account of creation, God is believed to have used the power of
the seven¹s love to unite and preserve creation. " - and we have plenty of
six, seven and even eight-pointed stars with a dot in the center - that has
to mean something good, right? =)

The odd Voynichesque flowers and Uroboro dragon are also fascinating...
aren't they?
