Elven Star (Seven pointed star, Septagram, Heptagram, Fairy Star)

The septagram is a continuously drawn figure having seven points. It is a less common religious symbol than the pentagram, but it is a sacred symbol to Wiccans who follow the Faery tradition, where it is called the Elven or Fairy star.

The septagram is important in Western kabbalah, where it symbolizes the sphere of Netzach the seven planets, the seven alchemical metals, and the seven days of the week.

The seven pointed star is an important part of the seal of the A.A., the inner order of the OTO, the secret society made famous by Aleister Crowley:

The 7 pointed star in Polynesia is a symbol of the ancestral (original) ocean navigator, Kanaloa. It consists of a somewhat solid symbol with the center having a dot inside a circle.

The Elven Star is also associated with the Otherkin, who believe they are, if at least in spirit, animals.

The septile is known as an aspect of fatality in astrology [source:Marc Edmond Jones...be careful what you 'tatoo' on your body...the Tanakh doesn't give idle warnings!]
It is a ‘gateway’ and it has to do with the Angelic realm. 7 and 11 are the only two numbers from 1 to 12 that when dived into 360 give an irrational number. the result for the septile thus is 51.4285… and that is the slope of the sides of the ‘Great Pyramid’

Until modern times, there were only seven bodies visible to the eye.

i found this in a wiccan book that i was reading, it said that it was the symbol of magical energy and ever since then i have drawn it everwhere, on my hand, on my school papers and books, and sadly, after almost 3 years, i am just now beginning to read up on the history of this star

The feri tradition and wicca are not related at all. Feri Witchcraft is its own seperate entity.

This symbol is also important in Islamic literature as the number of points of the star is the same number as the number of verses in the opening chapter of the Quraan, the Fatihah

It’s also an odd number which is more favoured…

That is also why, in scolarly litterature, there is normally a (historical) difference in meaning between the heptagram and heptagon (Greek); and the septagram and septagon (later Latin).
