The Five-Pointed Star as a Symbol
The most well-known of Taoist visual symbols is the Yin-Yang, also known as the Taiji symbol. The image consists of a circle divided into two teardrop-shaped halves—one white and the other black. Within each half is contained a smaller circle of the opposite color. In terms of Taoist cosmology , the circle represents Tao —the undifferentiated unity out of which all existence arises. The black and white halves within the circle represent Yin-qi and Yang-qi —the primordial feminine and masculine energies whose interplay gives birth to the manifest world: to the Five Elements and Ten-Thousand Things.
Common universal symbols: Quartered circle , triangle , spiral , circle , pentacle , swastika ,. Occult symbols are fast replacing Christian symbols in our culture. Therefore, we encourage you to use this list to warn others, especially Christian children who intentionally wear and display them because they are popular. Keep in mind that many of these symbols have double or multiple meanings. For example, the pentagram has been used to transmit occult power in all kinds of rituals for centuries, but to Christians the same shape may simply represent a star -- a special part of God's creation. The image of a fish may mean a sign of the zodiac astrology to some, but to Christians it has meant following Jesus and sharing the message of His love.
The yin yang meaning and symbol date back to ancient China. The yin yang symbol represents the belief that everything in the universe consists of two forces that are opposing but complementary. According to yin yang philosophy , the universe and everything in it are both constant and cyclical. In this infinite cycle, one force dominates and is then replaced by the opposing force. Examples illustrating the yin yang philosophy include:. The symbol of the yin yang, also known as the Tai Chi or Taiqi symbol , consists of a circle equally divided into black and white sections by a reverse S-like shape.
Humans have been fascinated by stars -- those luminous points of light embedded in the night's darkness -- for millennia.

Horiyoshi 3 with a Yakuza elder. Growing up in a conservative Muslim household, if any of my cousins had tattoos they always had to keep them hidden. Tattoos were both a religious and cultural taboo. I remember when my uncle visited us from America, every time he reached over the dinner table our eyes went to the black lines crawling from the bottom of his sweater. They were a mystery to us, although we could see they had some kind of spiritual significance to him. I got my tattoos knowing wholeheartedly that my closest family members would only see them during the Islamic ritual of bathing the body before burial. I wanted my ink to form a visual portrait of ideas and events that transformed me, literally and spiritually.
