Symbolic meaning of the Pentacle:
The Pentacle, symbol of Witchcraft, is a bold and fascinating statement about our place in the Universe. When the Pentacle is drawn or written the image created is called a Pentagram. The Pentagram represents an ancient concept that can be found in philosophical thought in both East and West. The Pentagram is a symbol of a Star encased in a Circle. The Circle around the Star represents the God/Goddess. It refracts and reflects all light, bringing to the wearer total intelligence, universal wisdom and protection.
The Pentagram has five points of which one point is facing upwards. Each point has its own meaning and the upward point of the Star is representative of the Spirit. Traditionally, each of the five angles has been attributed to the five metaphysical elements of Spirit, earth, air, fire and water. All elements contribute to life and are a part of each of us today.
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.
To wear a Pentagram Necklace is to say you feel the connection with the elements and respect the earth.
