Description

Pentagram: A pentagram  is the shape of a five-pointed star Pentagrams were used symbolically in ancient Greece and Babylonia, and are used today as a symbol of faith by many Wiccans, 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; {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 interpretations place specific details on the meaning for each point.

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

Fire: The lower right point – Courage and Daring.

Water: The upper right point – Emotions and Intuition.

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

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

In all cases, the star is encircled by a wheel, representing the continual flow of life, or energy.

The pentagram was used as a Christian symbol for the five senses, Medieval Christians believed that the “pentalpha” symbolizes the five wounds of Christ. The pentagram was believed to protect against demons.  Christians once more commonly used the pentagram to represent the five wounds of Jesus The pentagram has associations with Freemasonry  and is also utilized by other belief systems.
