More About the Symbol of the Pentagram
The pentagram was considered by the ancient Greeks and medieval astrologers to have supernatural properties and to be a protective symbol. Often in the past people would mark their doors with pentagrams to ward off evil witchcraft and spirits.
In good magic today (with the top pointed upwards) it is often used as a symbol to support transmission and communication with the spirit world. Its five points are often seen to represent the four classic elements of earth, water, air and fire joining with the fifth element of spirit to create life. A five-pointed star (pentagram) with a circle around it is referred to as a pentacle. This circle represents sacred space in which the fifth element of spirit controls the four earthly elements.
Also in the legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight a pentacle adorns his shield representing the five knightly virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, brotherly love and piety.
More About the Sacred Spiral Symbol
The sacred spiral is an ancient symbol of growth and evolution. It dates back many centuries and has been used by the ancient Celts, Greeks and as part of Wiccan beliefs.
As a Wiccan symbol it represents divine energy and the cycle of life – of death and rebirth. When drawn clockwise, it’s said to bring things towards you, and when drawn anti-clockwise, it pushes negative energies away from you. A spiral dance is also often used to celebrate and represent the powers of the symbol.
