In the occult world, the number of the sun is said to be 6 or 666. For example, in the book Magick In Theory and Practice, Aleister Crowely tells us: "The sun being 6, a square 6 X 6 contains 36 squares, We arrange the numbers

from 1 to 36 in a square, so that each line, file, and diagnol adds to the same number. This number is 111; the total of all is 666."
That said, consider this quote: "He [the true Mason] realizes that the Temple of Solomon is really the Temple of the Solar Man-- Sol-Om-On--the King of the Universe...". (Manly Palmer Hall, Freemason of the 33rd and last Degree of Freemasonry, as quoted from his book "The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, page 63 [brackets are mine]) In magic texts, the hexagram is called "Solomon's Seal", and this name is by no means an arbitrary or artificial misnomer, evidently, since, as 33rd Degree Freemason Manly P. Hall vaguely suggests in the quote above, the name Solomon consists of three names for the solar sun god; namely, Sol, Om, and On, a fact which is plainly stated by Christian writer John Daniel, author of a three volume set of books on Freemasonry: "The name Sol-Om-On, we know, is the composite name of three sun-gods in Roman, Indian, and Egyptian mythology." ("Scarlet and the Beast", by Daniel, Vol. II, page 124). Thus the name 'Solomon's Seal', used in the occult world to designate the hexagram, means Sol = 6, Om = 6, On = 6, or 6 thrice emphasized or repeated, i.e., the occult trinity, meaning that the term "Seal of Solomon" means "The Seal of 666". That is, 666 is not only the mathematical signature of Solomon's Seal, as explained in "Six Exoteric Ways the Hexagram Means 6,6,6", 666 is also the number of Solomon's name, thus identifying the six-pointed star as "THE MARK OF HIS NAME" (REV 14:11). [According the Bible, king Solomon fell into apostasy and pagan worship and built altars to Chemosh, Ashteroth, and Moloch, all of which, according to the Bible, are demonic idols whose worship involved human sacrifice.]

[2] HISTORICALLY THE HEXAGRAM WAS A SYMBOL OF THE PAGAN TRINITY OF HORUS, SET, AND SHU. Speaking of a figure of a hexagram with an eye in the center, Albert Churchward, a Freemason, writes: "The interpretation therefore, of this symbol, sign, or ideograph (Fig. 42) is Horus, or T.G.O.U.T.U., the Eternal Lord of the North and South [as represented by the two triangles], the Great Judge, Unerring, Just, and True, Lord of the All-Seeing Eye." (pg 174-175) Churchward, author of "The Arcana of Freemasonry", claims that the hexagram, like the swastika, is an ancient symbol of the solor sun god. He claims that in the olden world, at the center of solar temples, there would often be found 3 large cubes, each of which would be inscribed with a double axe symbol, Alleged picture of an ancient idol that includes the hexagram symbolizing what in their ancient language was sometimes called "the God of the axe", or what Churchward calls the "Primary Trinity". Although Churchward never says as much in his book, the 3 double-axe symbols are equivalent in shape to 3 Love Talismans of Solomon the King, and as such, they bear the numerological meaning of 6,6,6, which is the number of the solar cult's trinity, the T.G.A.O.T.U. of Freemasonry, i.e., The Grand Architect of the Universe. The hexagram, sometimes called the "Double Triangle of Solomon" is formed when the two triangles that symbolize opposite principles, merge and overlap, forming a hexagram, which, just like the triple double axe symbols on the ancient solar temples, or the three hourglass symbols on some scarabs of the ancient Egyptian preisthood, consists of three double triangles, each 6 sides, to signify what Churchward calls the Primitive Trinity of the solar cult. Although Churchward never mentions the numerical signature of these three symbols (6,6,6) in his book on the Arcana of Freemasonry, the connection should be obvious enough to anybody who will pause to consider the matter.

According to Churchward, the double triangle or hourglass symbol was used by many ancient solar cults, including the Druids, and that claim would seem to be substantiated by the picture of the Druid priest above, which I captured from a video documentary on the occult roots of Nazism. The priest's robe bears the hourglass symbols, or "double triangles of Solomon", as well as the swastika, another ancient solar symbol. [To verify this, watch "The Occult Roots of the Third Reich".]

[3] "666 is the occult number of the Hexagram, the symbol of the Sun, for a single line of the Hexagram contains three equal parts, each of which may be represented by the number 1, so that every line can be symbolized by the number 111. There are six lines in all, so that 111x6=666, the most Holy Number of the Sun. Each angle of the Hexagram is 60 degrees. 60 is the number of the Hebrew letter Samekh, which is the letter of the Holy Guardian Angel or the Solar Self in Man. Six angles of 60 degrees each equals 360 degrees, and 360 is the number of the Hebrew letter Shin spelled in full. Shin is the letter of the Sun and of 666. Also 666 is the number of a "Man" who lives in the Sun", according to David Cherubim, aka, Frater Aurora Aureae of The Order of the Thelemic Golden Dawn, in his work Thelmic Numbers and Words, The Six-Pointed Star or Hexagram, is called the Tetragrammaton and is the symbolic representation of the Jewish/Talmudic G-d of the Kabbala. The Sephirotic Tree of the Cabala taught that the sum of the numerical values of An-Soph (166, absolute empty) and Kether (500, unity) gives 666, i.e., the Sun.

[4] "The six pointed star is of ancient religious significance and is known as KING SOLOMAN'S SEAL. Robert Morris has said that he borrowed the plan of the O.E.S. [Order of the Eastern Star] Signet from King Solomon's Seal. This six pointed star is used in masonic work and is also found in other well known secret orders. -- Slipper, as quoted by Dr. Kathy Burns in "Hidden Secrets of the Eastern Star," page 17 The word 'hex', derived from the use of the hexagram in black magic rituals, designates a witch spell, which has a long historical association with the connotation of the number six. According to Webster's Dictionary, one meaning of the word 'hex', i.e., six, in English means to 'to cast an evil spell'. Inumerable occult texts picture the hexagram as a magic talisman, and many occult secret societies, including some of the most influential, e.g. the Theosophical Society, use the hexagram in their logo and/or in their magic rituals. Since the number of the the Anti-Christ is 666, and he is also associated with black magic (in that, according to the prophet Daniel, he will worship the god of forces and know dark sayings) we might draw a connection between the symbol long used in the dark arts, the hexagram, with the Anti-Christ, whose number is 666.

[5] THE HEXAGRAM HAS PROVEN, SELF-CONFESSED LINKS TO INTERNATIONAL FREEMASONRY, which is "the synagogue of Satan", according to Pope Pius IX. Some allege, though I've yet to see any proof of it, that Freemasonry is directed and totally controlled by the powerful Independent Order of the BNAI BRITH (sons of the cut, or covenant), an elite, exclusively Jewish, Masonic organization. In any case, if the preceeding analysis is correct, a secret or implied name or code for the Masonic T.G.A.O.T.U., or Grand Architect of the Universe, is 6-6-6, the numeric signification of the six-pointed star. This stands to reason because the Sanhedrin, the Jewish Pharisees who conspired to murder Christ, treated Jesus with contempt, ridicule, and mockery. Thus, because the leaders of Judaism knowingly and consciously rejected Jesus Christ, it stands to reason that their heirs and successors would do the same. What better way to subtley mock Christianity than to adopt as a "badge of honor", or mark of distinction, a number and symbol that the Christian New Testament associates with evil and the anti-Christ? The Pharisees meet to a tee times three the New Testament's description of Anti-Christ in that, unlike the Catholic Church, they deny that Jesus Christ came in the flesh, deny that He is the son of God, and deny that He is Messiah and Lord. what's more, much more, they treat such claims with profound distain, which contempt is expressed in their most sacred religious text, the Talmud, thus giving us reason to suppose that similar subtle and craftifly concealed distain would be inculcated into their Masonic stoodges, whose symbol, not coincidentally, the square and compass, represents an incomplete hexagram. Therefore, in that the number '666' represents not only a number, but also an attitude that bids defiance to Christ and Christianity--and insofar as this attitude is clearly expressed by organizations bearing the symbol--we infer that the number well suits the symbol.

[6] Crowely, self-professed "Beast-666", the founder of modern satanism, whose own mother called him "the Beast", used the hexagram in magic rites, and the secret societies he founded, e.g., the O.T.O., still use the hexagram as part of their magic rituals today. Thus Crowley himself, an expert on the occult, as well as a practioner of the dark arts, recognized the hexagram as the mark of the Beast, whose number, according to the Bible, is 666.

For example, to substantiate this point, Crowley wrote in his book "Equinox" that his name, the name of the Beast, is equivalent to the number of the sun, 666, which, according to Crowley is also equivalent to the Masonic symbol of the dot within the circle, as the scan here from Crowley's books will attest. Since the dot in the cirle is equivalent in meaning to the All-Seeing Eye, which, in turn is equivalent to the ideograph of the hexagram, acccording to Freemason Churchard in his book "The Arcana of Freemasonry", we can infer that Crowley, as an occult adept, well understood that his name, which he considered to be equivalent to the name of the Beast, or 666, refered also to the hexagram.

Crowley, not alone among Satanists who identified the hexagram as the mark of the Beast, also wrote that the acronym IAO, which is another name for the god he worshiped, means 666, the number of the Beast. "This name I.A.O. is qabalistically identical with that of THE BEAST and with his number 666, so that he who invokes the former also invokes the latter." (Aliester Crowley, Magick in Theory and Practice, Chapter I) He further states that this god, IAO, is also known as the god of the "All-Seeing Eye", which, in turn, signifies a symbolical synonym; namely, the hexagram, according to Freemason Churchward, as quoted above. "Now shalt thou adore me who am the Eye and the Tooth, the Goat of the Spirit, the Lord of Creation. I am the eye in the Triangle, the Silver Star that ye adore" (Black witch Freemason Aleister Crowley, Liber A'ash, quoted by secondary source, "Fallen Angel: The Untold Story of Jimmy Page and Led Zeppelin Based On the Stairway to Heaven Album")

IMG Crowleyites using hexagram in a ritual
[Above Crowley's crew adore their master; note the use of the hexagram. The hexagram has been used in devil worship for ages, likely since Solomon's day when he went bad and built an altar for Moloch and Ashtoreth.]
"And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth THE MARK OF HIS NAME." (Rev 14:11), The Holy Bible

This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666. (NIV) Rev 13:18

"Contanzo's followers said he had educated them in the correct, magical procedures of the Aztec priests, who would rip the heart from the victim's body cavity and gulp down the blood before it was drained away. The belief, on which the ritual system of the greater Aztec empire had been built, was that the throbbing heart sequestered the energy of the sun, which had to be "fed" with constant sacrifices. The ritual sites at Mexico City were stained red with the blood of hundreds of thousands of victims killed in this manner. After the sacrifice, the body parts--particularly the brain and vital organs, which contained the 'soul-life' of the sun--were boiled with blood in an iron kettle for ritual consumption. The Spanish soldier Bernal Diaz, who accompanied Cortez on his conquest of Mexico, reported seeing many pots--the kind used by Constanzo--near the Great Temple of Tlatelolco." -- Carl A. Raschke, "Painted Black", page 23

The Devil by any other name is still the Devil. To Christians, that means that sacrifices made to lesser gods are made to devils, not God, but to Freemasons, such as Blavatsky, it means that "Satan is God of this world and the only God", meaning that every blood sacrifice, whether knowingly or not, can be made to only one god; namely, the god of Freemasonry, the T.G.A.O.T.U., or what the ancients called "the god of the axe", sometimes symbolized with three double axes, as pictured in Churchward's book. Two camps, two battle lines, two signs: the cross of Jesus Christ or the hexagram of T.G.O.U.T.U., the Grand Architect of Freemasonry, the god of the triple double axe. Each person must choose. Bury the axe, take up the cross of Jesus Christ, and resist the hexers and their hexagram!

FREEMASON MATHERS ON SACRIFICES TO DEMONS: "Concerning sacrifices to the spirits, and how they should be made.

Such sacrifices consist of the blood and sometimes of the flesh." Freemason S.

The Magic Square Of The Sun is 666

Ancient numerologists discovered several magic squares - an array of numbers, the sum of all rows, columns and diagaonals being equal. Seven such squares were assigned to planets. The ancient Babylonians reckoned in units of six, sixty and six hundred, etc. Our unit of time and remnants of this system survive - the six letters of the Roman numeral system, such as 'I', 'V', 'X', 'L', 'C' and 'D' - the sum of those six Roman numerals adds up to the number 666. Early Christians were well aware of the solar properties of the 'Trinity of Sixes', as well as anti-Papists, who equated it with the Roman Catholic church, since the sun is the symbol of authority. From an occult perspective, in 'Revelations' Chapter 13, we find that 'The Beast' committed blasphemy by assuming such a number or title. This is pre-Bible, that 666 was determined as the number of the sun. So, if you add rows or columns of the Magic Square of the Sun in any direction - diagonal, up and down, it always equals 111, so that 111x6=666. Recall that this breakdown is the same as the hexagram, as noted above in the quote by a member of the Golden Dawn magical fraternity. Thus, in writing about Magic Squares, W. Wynn Westcott, a Freemason, notes: "It will be noticed that the great number of Sol is 666, called Sorath, Surt, the number of the Beast..." (W.W. Westcott, "Numbers - Their Occult Power and Mystic Virtues")
It's interesting to note that the number '13', which in the occult is said to be the number of rebellion and death, and therefore, of the Devil, also seems to be tied in with the hexagram, as the image to the right attests. '13' is the Death card in the Waite Tarot Deck and commonly known as an unlucky number--an ill-repute that's said to date back to the Papal crackdown on the Knight's Templar, thus giving the number a Masonic association as well. This form of the hexagram, as a cluster of 13, also appears on the U.S. one dollar bill. Kabbalists say 13 is man's ability to go beyond the Zodiac, to ascend above the stars of heaven, which may help expalain why, in the Library of Congress, it's inscribed: "Too low they build who build beneath the stars" and "The True Shekinah Is Man." Christians often associate the number 13 with rebellion due to Genesis 14:4.
