This symbol is commonly referred to as the "Chaos Star," and originated in Europe. The runic stylization is known as an "Insigil" in the Northern Tradition. This is a unique design by artist Kano Diebitch.
A Magical Rune is laid out around a circle increasing its Magical Power eightfold, radiating its Magical Power far and wide. This Rune is the "Teiwaz" rune, sacred to the god Tyr, Regent of Mars. In legend Tyr bound the "Fenris wolf" when it threatened the Cosmic Order, but had to sacrifice his right hand in the process of saving the other Gods.
Therefore in the world of men, this symbol has become known to symbolize "Order over Chaos," as well as Justice, and the Sacrifice for the greater good. It is the battle rune including heroism and victory in its meaning. It may seem a paradox that a symbol of order should come to be known as the 'Chaos Star', but the Cosmogenic force of Teiwaz is one that polarizes, creating Duality from Unity. Order and Chaos cannot exist without each other's complimentary qualities, and ultimately, everything is "ordered chaos." This has been found in science in the seemingly random movement of molecules, sound, quasars, etc. The ultimate discovery in modern physics of the chaos theory is that everything is in motion according to a mathematical order.
By placing this rune in a multiple eight-fold vibrational circle, the rune's Magical Forces are enhanced by a "Harmonic Resonance." Eight is the\ number of "Complete Manifestation," the "Perfection of Symmetry," and the eight-fold division of the Heavens. The fiery qualities of the Tyr Rune are also associated with masculine sexuality.
The chaos star is also associated with the Chaos Magick tradition; a post-modern approach to magic that emphasizes creativity, ingenuity and freedom from dogmas and history.
