The Pentagram


The pentagram is one of the most common symbols of a Witch and is a very powerful magical tool that is used in ceremonial rites; and is an emblem of earth.

The pentagram is worn by a witch for protection, the circle is symbolic of the never ending force of life and each individual point represents an element, with the upward point representing spirit.

The pentagram is a sacred symbol and in most witch traditions will never be worn  inverted with the point of the pentagram facing downward, in some traditions and covens a second degree witch may wear the pentagram in this manner signifying his or her degree, in my tradition the point of the pentagram must always be pointing upwards, while the pentagram is used for many different magical and ceremonial rites; the most common use is for protective purposes.
