Chaos Star (Chaos Wheel, Chaosphere)

The Chaos star is a spoked device with eight equidistant arrows radiating from a central point. It was originally devised by the fantasy author Michael Moorcock as a symbol of chaos (infinite possibility), and has been adopted as a symbol of Chaos Magick. Its current rounded shape was devised by occult author and chaos magician Peter Carroll. The chaos wheel is a popular decorative emblem for jewelry and clothing.

Of course he acknowledges it… never even tried to deny it. Just like he took the ‘color of magick’ from Terry Pratchett… to whom he gave full credit. HAIL ERIS!!!

You’re thinking of the black sun symbol.

Actually, this symbol was created by Michael Moorcock, and was used to represent the forces of Chaos in his books. Peter Carroll acknowledges that he took it from Moorcock.
