The Penagram and how it’s not just for Satanism

This is probley the most well-recognized symbols of witchcraft along with the most misunderstood!

The Pentagram is a representation of the five elements, earth, air, fire, water and spirit. An open pentagram( the star without the circle around it) means an open and active approach, Many wear it while still deciding to become a witch or not. Some just wear it because its a little safer then the more traditional.

A circle around a pentagram contains and protects. The circle symbolises eternity and infinity, the cycles of life and nature. The circle touching all 5 points indicates that the spirit, earth, air, water and fire are all connected.The circled pentagram is the passive form implying spiritual containment of the magic circle, in keeping with the traditional secrecy of witchcraft, and the personal, individual nature of the pagan religious path.

 The inverted pentagram is the symbol of Gardnerian second degree initiation, representing the need of the witch to learn to face the darkness within so that it may not later rise up to take control. The center of a pentagram implies a sixth formative element – love/will which controls from within, ruling matter and spirit by Will and the controlled magickal direction of sexual energies.

Many associate the Pentagram with devil worshiping but just because they use it doesn’t mean it’s an evil symbol. If I recall correctly they use a cross too………….
