The Pentacle has been used and worn as a powerful Protection symbol for thousands of years. It's meaning has roots in philosophy, religion, alchemy, magic, and mysticism. The five points of the pentacle can represent the four elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. The fifth point of the pentacle represents the fifth element, Spirit. In Hindu philosophy, this element of 'spirit' is called Akasha. It is the substance upon which reality is impressed.
In ancient Chinese philosophy, the flow of yin and yang are responsible for the creation of the five elements. The five points of the pentacle symbolize the element of fire (which creates earth), earth (which creates metal), metal (which creates water), water (which creates wood), and wood (which creates fire). The pentacle has had different meanings throughout history; Celtic priests called it "The Witch's Foot," the Druids considered it a sign of the 'God-head,' and it is also known as the "Seal of Solomon." Many believe the Pentacle to be a sign of protection against demons and a symbol ofsafety. The Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, thought the symbol represented the harmony of mind and body and considered it a symbol of good health. In Gnosticism, it referred tot he five elements of Fire, Water, Air, Wind, and Light. In Christian iconography, the pentacle is associated with the five stigmata of Christ.
In rituals of magic, the pentacle is used in ritual oaths; with the point down denoting 'Black Magic' and the point up denoting 'White Magic.' Drawing the sign of the Pentacle in the air, starting at the top and leading to the bottom, is used as a banishing ritual to ward off negative energies, evil vibrations, and psychic attacks. Understanding the history and philosophical importance of the Pentacle will help dispel the fear and negativity some associate with this symbol.
