The seals were developed as symbol of unity and family at the suggestion from one of Solomon's wives. Each symbol within the seal holds a special meaning. From research, I have learned this is the general meaning of each object. Some see these seals as one of the first magikal sigils in recorded history. I'm not so sure of that claim, but ok. Here's one to ponder...
The Fifth and Last Pentacle of Mercury. –
This commandeth the
Spirits of Mercury, and serveth to open doors in whatever way they may be closed,
and nothing it may encounter can resist it.
Editor’s Note.– Within the Pentacle are the Names El Ab, and IHVH. The versicle
is from Psalm xxiv. 7:– "Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up ye everlasting
doors, and the King of Glory shall come in."
Works of this seal is to provides with knowledge and understanding of everything. It also helps to penetrates into others hidden thoughts.
Editor's Note.-- In the center is the name of God, El. The Hebrew letters inscribed about the dodecagram make the sentence, 'IHVH, fix thou the Volatile, and let there be unto the void restriction.' The versicle is:— 'Wisdom and virtue are in his house, and the Knowledge of all things remaineth with him for ever.' -SLM
In W, this is pentacle number 21, where the verse reads "Sapientia et virtus in domo eius, et scientia omnia rerum apud eum in saeculorum saeculi. In Aub24 this is the sixteenth pentacle, but the verse reads, "Et tunc cognovi esse in me scientia cunctarum creaturas, tam quae in coelo, quam quae sub coelo sunt." -JHP (link- http://www.esotericarchives.com/solomon/ksol.htm)
