Appendix D

The Wheel of the Year as the Star of Aphrodite

(as referred to in Chapter 5 – last paragraph, and fn.70)

 

footnote 70 says: This is the six-pointed star that is commonly thought of as the Star of David but which was only adopted by Jewish mysticism in the 12th century due to its association with sex and Eastern Goddess religious practice. See Barbara Walker, The Woman’s Encyclopaedia of Myths and Secrets, p.400-403. I have named it the Star of Aphrodite, as 666 was Her number, though it could equally be known as the Star of Ishtar for similar reasons.
