There are seven sacraments; gifts of spirit; the seven of 3+4 theological and cardinal virtues; deadly sins, tiers of Purgatory
(in metaphysical belief this would be one of the lower astral planes - or in Buddhism, one of the Bardo planes). There are

Sumero-Semitic: There are seven lunar divisions and days of the week. "Thou shalt shine with horns to determine
six days and on the seventh with half a crown.", the seventh thus becomes opposition to the sun and symbolizes darkness and
balefulness and therefore is dangerous to undertake anything on the seventh day because that is the day of rest. We can see
here the influence of this belief in other religious contexts. There are seven zones of earth; heavens, symbolized by the
planes of ziggurat.
There are seven branches to the Tree of Life each having seven leaves. Leaves are symbols of fertility, renewal
and growth. There are seven gates of hell, seven demons of Tiamat and seven winds to destroy her---interesting to note that

Seven is a mystic number traditionally associated with Venus and more recently with Neptune. It is the number
of feelings and of instincts - of the Group Mind, of Love, whether that strange, indescribable but pervasive feeling of love
is towards another person, a pet, oneself or one's God. 'Love' embodies tremendous sexual energy, the emotions of which may
be directed in various ways.
Heptagon is the inward directing of that emotion, the containment, the 'love inside', that is symbolized by
the heptagon. It is the love we 'hold' and can equally signify a deep religious conviction, a forming of our God in our own
image or an infatuation with another. It is feeling contained.
The 7-pointed star or heptagram is a mystical occult symbol. Like the pentagram, it has been called the Witch's
Star, also the Astrologer's Star. Beyond six points, the polygrams all have multiple configurations and the heptagram may
be drawn in two different ways - an obtuse form and an acute angled form; both forms are unicursal, here shown together with
the third 7-point figure, the heptagon.
In cabalistic terms, the number '7' is attributed to Venus. It relates to Man's mundane feelings and his instincts
- to his sexuality . It relates to Man's place in the pattern of Nature and to his linking with the Group Mind - the undifferentiated
Soul of Mankind.
Man's pattern of mundane life is much ruled by the seven day cycle of the week. The seven classical 'planets'
: Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturlend their names to the days of the week and may be arranged around the
figure of the heptagram.
Placed around the acute heptagram in the order of their apparent speed of movement in the heavens, the 'planets'
are ordered along the unicursal line in the order of days of the week.
The heptagram also relates to the seven chakras of the body. These are the energy nodes that rise up the course
of the spine from the basal node, where is coiled the Kundalini serpent, to the point at the top of the head. The mundane
well-being of the body and its aura are linked to the chakras. The heptagram is symbolic of this balanced, flowing of bodily
energies and of health. It is a symbol relating to healing and dynamic balance of the body physic.
There are two forms of heptagram:
The obtuse form suggests passivity, contentment and attuning with nature and its forces; of healthy rhythms
and normal sexuality; of balanced feelings and satisfied desires; of normal receptivity and awareness of the feelings of others.
The acute, active form suggests an outgoing interaction with nature's forces, making progressive use of them
and directing sexual energy. It suggests strong feelings and strongly expressed desires; likewise perhaps, heightened sensitivity
to the emotions of others. It is a symbol of the empath and the healer.
Combining the three seven - pointed figures together, creates a beautiful mandala of meditation.

In some myths the eighth day created the new "man" of grace. After seven days of fasting and penance the eighth
day becomes plenty and renewal. 7+1 is the number of the octave which is a continual theme in all esoteric belief systems.
