Nope. The Eastern Star refers either to the star which led the Magi to Jesus or the Morning Star, a.k.a. Venus, to which Jesus compared himself
(Revelation of St. John the Divine, 22:16)
 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and
The morning star = lucifer correct?
Kind of, but not really. Here's the thing. The ancient Romans called the morning star, (once again, a.k.a. Venus) Lucifer
, because it
immediately preceeds the light of the sun (do you see why it's called "the Morning Star?"
Now, in the Bible, there is a Babylonian king who is referred to (in the original Hebrew) as "Morning Star," because he was felt to be bright in
glory and marshall victory. The Romans, naturally enough, translated that name as Lucifer
when they (by which I mean St. Jerome) created the
Vulgate. Later generations of people who like hysteria more than accurate understanding took the passage about the Morning Star (Isiah 14) to mean
Satan... if it was about Satan, why didn't the author use the Hebrew word Satan, as is used regularly throughout the old testament? Anyway, here is
the relevant portion of Isaiah, which shows pretty clearly that a king of Babylon is being referred to, and that God will punish Babylon for the sins
of its king (from Isaiah 14... sorry about the length of the quote):
 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.
 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.
 The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
 Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.
 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath
raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of
the congregation, in the sides of the north:
 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake
 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house.
 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go
down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be
 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world
 For I will rise up against them, saith the LORD of hosts, and cut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the LORD.
Does the morning star = Sirius?
Set = Sirius correct?
Nope. At least, I've never seen this anywhere reputable, or with sufficient proof.
Sat = Set correct?
Nope. Set = Seth, but that's about it.
Eastern Star = Satan?
Most definitely, sincerely, and enequivocally, NO!
Is the Blazing Star that Albert Identified Really the Eastern Star?
I assume that here, in your oh-so-endearing way, you are trying to refer direspectfully to Albert Pike? No, Bro. Pike did not "identify" the
Blazing Star. It was part of Masonic ritual for about 200 years before he was born...
So I take it this Sirius Cult was evil?
I can't really say... all we have is an unattributed quote from you, which quote also involves absolutely no proof.
So far, the quotes point out that Sirius is a symbol of evil.
Yeah! Only... what a shame... the quotes are unattributed, and they contain to internal content of evidence.
Some Post Questions:
Are masonic lodges pointed towards the East?
Nope. Mine is oriented North-South. Masonic Lodges do refer to the side on which the Worshipful Master sits as "the East." So, for example, in my
Lodge, the "East" is actually the South.
There is a tribe in Africa who believes their God Dagon came from Sirius. A fish is very important in their symbology. I was wondering if there is a
picture of a fish or serpent in any symbols or masonic clothing etc...?
So wait... a fish and a serpent are the same thing? It's a good thing you don't teach biology.
