The Star Attributes
Golden Dawn title
Daughter of the Firmament, Dweller between the Waters
Golden Dawn description of The Star
The large Star in the centre of the Heavens has seven principal and fourteen secondary rays and this represents the Heptad multiplied by the Triad. This yields twentyone-the number of the Divine Name EYHH whch as you already know, is attached to Kether. In the Egyptian sense, it is Sirius, the Dog-Star, the Star of Isis-Sothis. Around it are the Stars of the Seven Planets each with its sevenfold counter changed operation”. “The nude figure with the Star of the heptagram on her brow is the synthesis of Isis, of Nephthys and of Athor. She also represents the planet Venus through whose sphere the influence of Chesed descends. She is Aima, Tebunah, the Great Supernal Mother-Ainia Elohim, pouring upon the Earth the waters of Creation which unite and form a River at her feet, the River going forth from the Supernal Eden which ever floweth and faileth not. Note well that in this Key she is completely unveiled while in the twenty-first Key she is only partially so”. “The two Urns contain the influences from Chokmah and Binah. On the right springs the Tree of Life and on the left the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil whereon the Bird of Hermes alights and therefore does this Key represent the restored World, after the Formless and the Void and the Darkness: The New Adam, the Countenance of the Man which falls in the Sign of Aquarius. And therefore doth the astronomical symbol of this sign represent, as it were, Waves of water: the ripples of that River going forth out of Eden. But, therefore also, it is justly attributed to Air and not to water because it is the Firmament dividing and containing the Waters
