Magickal Symbols And Their Meaning




The Pentacle
The upright pentagram/pentacle, is a five pointed star with the single point on top, pointing towards the sky (higher self or God/Goddess), enclosed in a circle. The symbolism of the pentagram/pentacle is as follows:

  1. Spirit - The topmost point of the star.
  2. Air - Upper left hand corner of the star.
  3. Water - Upper right hand corner of the star.
  4. Fire - Lower right hand corner of the star.
  5. Earth - Lower left hand corner of the star.
  6. Circle - The universe without beginning or ending, encircling us.
Modern Pagans, Wiccans and Witches use the pentagram/pentacle for protection, wisdom and empowerment. It is through the circle that the Wisdom and Power of the Divine is focused into the Center of the Pentacle which symbolizes you. Thus the Love, Power and Protection of the Lord (God) and Lady (Goddess) is focused into you.
