“This insect is in the habit of entering the hives of the common domestic bee, where it takes up its abode for a time, and regales itself on the honey. … It is not easy to understand how a creature without offensive weapons, and unprotected by any hard covering, can either resist or survive the attacks of so many armed assailants.”

The Pentacle was known as the Seal of Solomon. It is a symbol of Earth and Prosperity as seen in the tarot. The pentacle in its upright position represents the Spirit in balance and harmony with the four elements. The tree represents the cosmic world tree known throughout many cultures & spiritual paths. Around the edge it reads, "Seed, root, stem, bud, flower, leaf, fruit," representing the endless cycle of rebirth
The Merkaba (Tetrahedron/Star of David) is used by most traditions to graph what occurs when one source separates to understand itself, and to expand its abilities. It is the core geometric form in many sacred graphs, such as the Far East Mandalas and Yantras. The merkaba represents source examining itself – what it is and is not – the polarities that exist to hold energy in place. It is often used as the symbol for creation itself, and in some cases the central symbol for certain deities.
