Hi Daniel,

With great respect, may I draw your attention to the fact that the "Star of David," as palladial icon for Judaism, is recently adopted (19th. century), in the context of Zionism: of course there are a few ancient instances, ornamental, Kabbalistic:[^] The sign's use in Islam, associated with magic (Seal of Solomon) may be as ancient. And, note that Hasmonean Judaism was fervently aniconic, and condemned any form of magic.

The pentagram has much more ancient ritual use, although it also occurs in the Christian tradition: [^].

Of course, the most pluripotent magical sign is the capital letter "I," and its associated phoneme.
Quote:
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”
― W.B. Yeats
