There has been many an internet article documenting Starbucks' use of the 'siren' or mermaid with two tails for its logo - but as always, they all miss the point!
Ignoring the fact that the 'siren' is in fact 'Isis', a deity of the Egyptian creation legend (to be covered shortly...), let's start with the three stars which seemingly form a pyramid...
Simply joining the 3 stars creates a pyramid, minus the capstone of course, but in its place - a crown. The "All Seeing Eye" exists centre piece as a star - much like the star you might put on your Christmas tree.
The symbolism used here is much like that on the "British Coat Of Arms" which I covered some months back. A pyramid topped with a crown.
As noted in my post about "The Number 11" a Google search into the etymology of the word "crown" establishes it was derived from the Anglo-French word "coroune" in the year 1111.
"1111, from Anglo-Fr. coroune, from O.Fr. corone, from L. corona "crown""
As always, the crown symbolises 11:11.
11:11 x 11:11 = 1234321 = A pyramid.
Ever wondered why Starbucks is called just that? A true English translation would be "Starmoney", which is essentially "Money for the stars".
Where do you think the £3 some pay for an overpriced coffee (that will also aid in their slow demise) goes? Potentially funding some "star" project maybe?
