Description

Pentagram: A pentagram  is the shape of a five-pointed star. Pentagram used symbolically in ancient Greece and Babylonia. And today as a symbol of faith by many Wiccan, akin to the use of the cross by Christians and the Star of David by Jews.

The Pentagram is an ancient symbol with many different meanings and representations. One of the original is that the four lower points represent the four aspects of the world. Like earth, water, air, and fire with the fifth top point representing the divine spirit.

Another interpretation is the creative spirit over all creation, in other words, mind/spirit over matter.

  • Some interpretation place specific detail on the meaning for each point. For example:

Earth: The lower left point – Stability and Physical Endurance.

Fire: The lower right point – Courage and Daring.

Water: The upper right point – Emotion and Intuition.

Air: The upper left point – Intelligence and the Arts.

Spirit: The topmost point – Deity the Divine, and the All that Is.

Meanwhile, the star is encircled by a wheel, and also represent the continual flow of life, or energy.

In addition this is a Christian symbol for the five senses. Medieval Christians believe that the “pentalpha” symbolize the five wounds of Christ and protect against demons.

Finally the pentagram associate with Freemasonry and several other belief systems.
