A Brief Visual Glossary of Symbols

Please NoteThe information below has been compiled by Christian (Catholic) authors and is framed as such.  However, whatever faith you may be or have or not have, you are most welcome here and we hope this information may be helpful to anyone who seeks the truth.

"Whatever is hidden is meant to be disclosed, and whatever is concealed is meant to be brought out into the open."

Those are the Words of Jesus Christ in the Gospel of Saint Mark. He also taught us to 'be 'wise as serpents' in Saint Matthew's Gospel.
Let us heed His Words now.


Ever increasingly, and yet invisible and unimportant to most, dark forces impose symbols, motifs, and marks with double and often diabolical meanings hidden in plain sight.  It would be almost impossible to begin to narrate and expose all of these, so this article is truly only a very brief overview of some of the more common symbolic constructs that most of us see many times during any given day – and barely notice.  There are no symbols below that you will be new to, or that you don't see frequently if you own a computer or a television.

The symbols below have a central theme and form the very basic grammar of a secret language with ancient roots in a belief system and school of thought which goes by many names – Mystery Schools (Babylon), the Illuminati, Masonry, Occult, Secret Doctrine, New Age, Astrotheology, Secret Societies, Theosophy, Externalization of the Hierarchy, Law of Attraction, Occult, New World Order, Luciferianism, and so on – but whatever it may be called, the common factor and important thing to know is that this movement has a singular goal: to reinforce the serpent's lie in the Garden of Eden in the eyes of men that through special knowledge and disobedience man achieves immortality and can 'be like unto God'.  The quickest way to grasp the 'secret' and true intents behind the 'Illuminati' is to re-study just two stories from Holy Scripture:  The Serpent in the Garden of Eden and The Tower of Babel

Many will continue to ignore, laugh off, or even embrace these signs, excusing them as 'conspiracy', 'coincidence', or 'superstition'.  Many will not want to be bothered or troubled with this information.  Many will not see.  For the brave and honest of spirit, please simply be peacefully aware and ask why is it that we now see these symbols more and more often and in more and more places.  Why now?  Should you have doubts about the 'conspiratorial' nature of this prevalence of symbols, please just realize that whenever we see a major corporate logo design, or a frame of film from the latest Hollywood blockbuster, a magazine ad, or the cover of the newest hot video game, none of these decisions are ever taken lightly or executed carelessly.  There are no mistakes.  Great thought and care goes into all of the imagery we are presented with from high-profile corporations, entertainment, and the media.  This is on purpose and to think otherwise is either a form of willing denial or naivete.


The short glossary below in no way pretends to be exhaustive, detailed, or academic.  It is not a history lesson and it does not try to prove anything.  This compilation is based on decades of research and the authors encourage everyone to verify the facts and seek the truth on their own.  It is meant to give an easy and very basic overview and quick introduction to those who have little or no knowledge of this subject. 

Further, no symbol listed is in and of itself 'evil'. This list should not be taken as a compendium of 'evil symbols' outright. When we see symbols it means to pay closer attention, to discern, to open our spiritual eyes a bit wider and to be careful.  Of course, any symbol can be used innocently or coincidentally, and with no ill intent – indeed, when it comes to symbols intent really does matter. Also, it should be understood that most all symbols have at least a double meaning. For instance, an upside down cross to many represents a 'devil sign' and it surely can be used that way as an insult to Jesus; however, many Catholics know that an upside down cross can also be used to represent Saint Peter, who insisted on being crucified upside down as he did not feel worthy to die in the same manner as our Lord Jesus Christ. It is worth mentioning that many, if not most, all symbols which are now used with darker intents have at one time been used in some manner or form as representations of the True Triune God.  We must remember always that the devil is a thief and a liar.  He creates nothing, and no real power can ever come from him.  He simply takes what is good from God and corrupts, mocks, perverts, misuses, distorts, or falsifies it.  Finally, where the use of a 'celebrity' image has been used, it is the authors' strong hope that this not be used to malign or judge any person in any way.  The images of 'celebrities' are used only to demonstrate the pervasiveness of these symbols and their overwhelming dominance in the world of media.

The Words written in Ephesians have never been more appropriate or important than they are now:  "For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places."
Please use discernment and common sense.  


INDEX:     All-Seeing Eye   Sun/Fire/Light   Pyramid/Triangle   Egyptian Symbols   Phoenix/Eagle   Owl   Obelisks   Astrology/Zodiac   Lightning Bolt   Square/Compass   Checkerboard   Pillars/Columns   Hand Signs   Death   Butterfly   Costumes   Mannequins/Puppets   Pentacle  


all seeing eye







Called the 'All Seeing Eye', the "Eye of Horus', the 'Eye of Lucifer', the "Eye of Providence", the "Eye of Saturn", the "Eye of Ra" and even the "Eye of God'.  It can mean many things perhaps, but is most often associated with power, secret knowledge, and control. To display one eye is akin to saying 'I too am a god'.  It is an attempt to deify that which it is displayed on.

Isn't This the 'Eye of God' or 'Holy Trinity'?
No. It is often wrongly claimed that this 'eye' symbol, especially when surrounded by a triangle and rays of light, is actually a representation of the True Triune God or 'The Holy Trinity'.  Some churches began displaying this symbol throughout the Renaissance and Age of Enlightenment (both movements with very strong occult/'illuminati' underpinnings and designs).  Please simply know that the 'all seeing eye' absolutely does not have it's origins or roots in Catholicism or Christianity or even Judaism. The roots of this image can be traced back to Egypt (eye of osiris/horus), Hinduism (shiva's 'third eye'), and even Buddhism (buddha is referred to as the 'eye of the world'). Just because you may have seen this symbol (or any other) in a Catholic Church does not make the symbol truly and automatically 'Catholic' or Christian – at all. All symbols must be looked at carefully in context and also interpreted both historically and even more importantly to their usage in modern time. To try and make the argument that this symbol (The 'all-seeing eye' in a triangle) is not an easily recognizable emblem of the 'illuminati' in 2014 is a losing battle.


sun fire light







Has been, and always can be, represented in endless ways.  Very briefly, all of these signs go back to pagan practices of worshiping the earth's sun.  Sun worship is an act of honoring the created (the sun) instead of the Creator.  It venerates the visible light of the physical realm which gives biological life in place of the True Light, which is Jesus Christ, Who gives eternal Life.


triangle pyramid







The triangle (and pyramid) are ways of representing the number 3, or the union of two (1 male and 1 female) to produce three – manifestation.  It is invoked to produce something, achieve an effect, or attain a goal.  The pyramid/triangle also certainly represents a controlling few (or one individual) at its upper end as it is supported by the greater masses at the base, externalizing the extreme hierarchy.  The most obvious examples are the ancient Egyptian pyramids built on the backs and labor of captive slaves.  Pharaohs exploited and exhausted countless lives of generations of enslaved human beings in an attempt by their few rulers to achieve 'immortality'.  This symbol instantly brings to mind the Book of Exodus in which Moses helped God lead His people out of bondage from His enemy.  The pyramid/triangle is definitely used as a powerful emblem representing an enemy of God in the attempt to possess His people.


egyptian symbols







The overwhelming importance of Egyptian symbology and iconography cannot be stressed enough.  It can be fairly stated that almost anywhere you see an Egyptian influence upon imagery, there is most certainly an occult meaning and mystery school association.  









These bird symbols have varying significance and meanings, but in short, they represent the mythical Phoenix bird which destroys itself in flames, and then rises from the ashes.  The symbolic bird is often depicted with two heads.  It can often represent Lucifer, great military strength, force, and fascism.    









A symbol of wisdom and secret knowledge, this symbol is heavily associated with witchcraft/wizardry, secrecy, mysticism and the underworld.  The owl sees and hunts at night – it is a representation of working in secrecy, as the owl has the ability to see in the dark.









An ancient Egyptian monument to the ' sun-god' Osiris, and also an early representation of Pan, the 'goat-god' of sensuality, the obelisk is primarily a phallic symbol and signifies celebration of power, fertility, the flesh, regeneration, and, is, of course, an idol to the sun.









All forms of astrology are inseparably connected to the occult.  Most pagan gods are represented by a specific planet.  The study and practice of astrology denies a trust in God and seeks out special knowledge, foreknowledge, and power.  Each symbol of the zodiac has an important meaning and is the most common 'short-hand' for the occult.


lightning bolt







Also known as a 'satanic S', the lightning bolt is a symbol of supernatural power, punishment, and destruction.  It signifies the ability and right to inflict harm on others.  Think of the Nazi SS uniforms which prominently featured double lightning bolts.  


square and compass







The 'logo' and admitted symbol of the Freemasons.  Masons will profess the symbol stands for virtue and wisdom.  It is far more complicated than that and has a lot to do with the duality of the physical versus the spiritual, the seen and the unseen.  The important thing to know is wherever the square and compass symbol is seen, there is a masonic influence, if not ownership. Another emblem of freemasonry usually seen along with the square and compass is the letter 'G'.  The meaning behind this letter and what it may stand for is a mystery.  While some say it stands for 'God', 'The Grand Architect of the Universe', along with many other things, most likely the 'G' has multiple meanings which are understood at different levels within degrees of freemasonry.  The letter 'G' certainly represents 'Gnosis' – secret spiritual knowledge and enlightenment.


masonic floor







Black and white together are a representation of duality and the balance of good and evil.  This is the traditional floor used in masonic lodges (going back to ancient Egypt) and is where initiations occur. Generally speaking, this often seen symbol is simply a calling card of freemasonry.


columns pillars







Another common symbol of freemasonry, with kabalistic influences.  The pillars in part represent duality (opposing forces) and signify an entrance or gateway into deeper secret knowledge and hidden spiritual realms.


hand symbols







Many symbols are depicted in hand signs, gestures, and even secret handshakes.  Hands can make triangles, devil horns, and signify membership in a secret organization.


death culture







Extremely prevalent and exhibited in endless forms.  These symbols are the opposition to Life which comes from God.  These motifs celebrate and foster blindness, desensitization, mindlessness, heartlessness, and coldness.


monarch mind control







A symbol of transformation and metamorphosis that is most associated with a form of 'mind-control' (simply, a modern term for possession).  It often signifies taking a human's free will and changing the person into  a 'slave' that is controlled by others.


mind control mickey







These all have specific meanings, but the common thread is they indicate a form of mind-control and are heavily associated with occult sexual slavery.  They signify an imposed cage of childhood and dependence to be exploited and controlled by others.  These symbols also are often used as a mockery of purity and innocence.


illuminati puppets







Symbols of dehumanization.  Lifeless figures easily controlled and manipulated by others.









This shape has 5 points and 5 is the occult number representing man, and specifically the body of man.  In modern times the pentagram is most associated with witchcraft (wicca), satanism or ritualistic magic, and is often seen pointing down in representation of a goat's head.  In brief, it calls forth and honors earthly human glory, deification of man, and freedom from sexual or religious taboos.

    I'm being gangstalk, and they do mason symbol at me. They have done the Ok666, the shush sign, and the ok666 over their eye, and the pointing the index finger to the sky. Here recently they have pointed directly at me the pointer finger. What does that mean??

    LOL the Sowilo rune is a symbol of the Sun, not of "destruction". The Nazis used a double Sowilo. Educate yourselves, bunch of silly fundies! You talk about mental control and you have the worst brainwashing of all; CHRISTIANITY. You dare to talk about the abuses of the "illuminati" but you never talk about the Church (and protestants) burning people to impose their religion, of course.

      So because the protestants and the church as you say burned people, does that justify what the so called illuminati does to people. Instead of addressing this particular issue, you'd rather turn around and point fingers at something else like a typical troll.

        You're the ignorant, because you're talking about fetuses, not "babies". And if you want to mention Atheist killers, better talk about Stalin or Mao! Also the Illuminati and Masons are just members of a sort of spiritual university. What each member does with the spiritual knowledge they acquire, it's up to every member. What the popular culture does with those symbols is attempting to awake the sheeple. Besides the real "Illuminati" who rule the World are the big stockholders (owners) of banks and multinationals. If you want to know who's really in power, follow the money. Oh and I don't get why you Christians don't feel safe instead of worrying so much for the next thing the ruling elite or the Illuminati will do. I've noticed every religion has a little bit of truth; why don't you ask Jesus for the protection of archangel Michael? Let me guess; it's because you don't really believe in them and archangels are like unicorns to you, hypocrites.

          Wrong, Satanist dumbass. And you can barely even speak English, "You're the ignorant, …". Fetuses ARE babies, you Satanist POS!!! I know exactly who the Illuminati are , dumbass. Yet you lick their boots like the easily manipulated, unthinking Satanic pawn you are. You are one stupid as hell POS and I hope you enjoy the hell that you've been begging for and deserve, you treasonous POS!! And stop lying, you LOVE Satan to the point that you'll deny God in your desperation to justify your homosexuality/pedophilia and filth!!! YOU are the hypocrite, Satanist fagot and you'll get Satan's reward! Faking like you give a damn about other people LMAO!!!!! What a joke!!! If God doesn't exist then who gives a damn if the Illuminati murder half the world, hypocritical fagot?? It wouldn't matter because we'd all be the product of random chemical reactions and Life would have no meaning. That's another thing, you're a scientifically illiterate dumbass, stupidly fantasizing that a fictional explosion of Nothing created Everything. DUMBASS!!!

            Oh the truth hurts, huh? You have no decent arguments to respond and thus you have to recourse to insults. But I wish no hell to you; I hope your god (which is really the Sun god) blesses you so you can open your mind. Happy 2019.

      Yeah, I agree. ‘Tis good to notice and acknowledge where secret societies like the enslaved freemasons (like king James) have corrupted divine spiritual communities into moraless cults that end up slaves unto the same principality that gadre’el-ites serve in infinite slavery. Misery’s only love is company, which is what “they” (the ashkenazi) seek: the company of those as weak as “they” are. Those who say they are Jews and are not but do lie.. those of the synagogue of shaitan have already lost and are doing what they can to turn more good seeds into bad seeds. “They” will never prevail over the faithful. Those whom serve the Source and truth will inevitably prevail and the longer they postpone it the more gratifying our righteous win is. We’ve already prevailed over hell, the synagogue of shaitan is merely in perpetual denial. Their resistance is futile and amusing. They think corrupting the Vatican will turn righteous ones away from righteousness? That only works on the weak who are unworthy anyway. Good riddance to the naieve ones who are willing to question Source, but refuse to question the corrupting forces of Source’s word/all Truth. The same ones who corrupt the Word are the same one who manifest the murdering. If anything that drives me closer to Source, it further into the hands of the Void that causes the violence haha.

    I think the all seeing eye refers to masons using the eyeball of their victim to see into the future the owl is moleck, the biblical antichrist is the roman church according to every reformer and the false prophet is plato.
    Freemasonry is neo-Platonism which i think is why neo was called neo in the matrix, the end times beast is Plato's republic (Fabian socialism) brought to us by Britain.

    I have to admit (sheepishly) that before I stumbled upon this page after being elsewhere on your website I had no idea what a lot of these symbols meant or referred to. I very much thank you for educating me on these symbols.

    The 'Biblical False Prophet' website has posted revelations that the Lord has given to me. Here is a summary of those revelations:
    The false prophet has the appearance of TV Batman – a good guy in the shadows. TV Batman wears a grey bodysuit. If you look at the crow that attacked the dove at the Vatican, it has black wings (black cape) and a grey body.
    The movie "50 Shades of Grey" is a sign and Batman uses a 'batsignal.' The 'colour' grey speaks of mixture. In contrast, the Lord showed me the Penguin. The Penguin wears a black and white costume – there is no mixture. The Lord also showed me a lock of green hair. Eventually, I worked out that it represents the Joker. On the inside, the false prophet is the Joker. The false prophet has a sense of humour, but this is a cover. We won't see much of the Joker, but there will be enough information to know his true identity. The movie "Batman v Superman" is a sign – one good superhero (false church) v another good superhero (true church). The Lord showed me a dream in which a fruit bat (false prophet and antichrist have one mind, Rev 17:17) flew toward a large Gothic house (Vatican) at night ('dark ages').

    Job 26:10 He drew a circular horizon on the face of the waters, At the boundary of light and darkness.
    However, satan has been using compromise to blur the boundary. Compromise is a basis of the interfaith movement.

      Annie Friday, fruit bats carry Ebola virus. This speaks of spiritual death!
      The false prophet is an actor (Batman) who transmits a deadly virus.

      Dear Peter,

      Here is the link to the crow and the dove page: ISIS, the ANTICHRIST, the CROW, the WITNESSES and the ABOMINATION
      This will help you see further into the Truth +++

        Thanks. I'm in the eWilderness, but I can SEE that what is posted here is consistent with images the Lord has been showing me. SEEing is an interesting topic because people with partial sight think they can see, but can they see ENOUGH? Perhaps they can't see that the 'solution' is right in front of them – the eye salve (Rev 3:18). Perhaps they can't see that man muddies the waters,
        Ezekiel 32:13 Also I will destroy all its animals From beside its great waters; The foot of man shall muddy them no more, Nor shall the hooves of animals muddy them.
        God Bless

    I am so embarrassed for humanity…and so sad. Sad, mainly, in that there is a limited awakening; there are limited 'scales' lifted off people's eyes and there is limited awareness, except only for this minority group. Please God, enlighten ALL your people. Free will is an amazing gift and I understand why, but HOW can we humans help those whom you have not chosen? Are they lost from the beginning? I am devastated by this concept. Please free even the most hateful and evil of people such as Hitler, etc. Is there NOT one redeeming quality in people such as these? I feel so sad for these sinners. As they have sinned differently than me :-(
    I pray that the entity of 'hell' can be eliminated by the prayers of the most faithful. I know it's not prophesied, but my perfect world brings ALL humans together in the healing and forgiving name of Jesus – in Heaven.
    Please God, spare those in hell.

      First, the church needs to awaken.
      Second, the church will be divided into the church that is awake (light) and the church that is half-awake (shadows/twilight) or sleeping (dark/dead).
      Remember that the virgins (= church) without oil (= anointing) in their lamps will miss the groom (Messiah Heb/Christ Gk = Anointed One). Remember that the door was shut (Matt ch 25).
      The church must be ruthless with sin or sin will creep in.
      Now is the time to choose between 1. the Anointed One and 2. the blind church leaders who SAY that they are anointed and that Jesus is the Anointed One.
