Do you have an altar?
This grid incorporates the Pentagram on an altar.
The Pentagram is a symbol of a star, always with 5 points - one pointing upward, each with its own meaning. When surrounded by a circle it is often called a Pentacle.
The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. All these things contribute to life and are a part of each of us.
Many Witches, Pagans, Wiccans & those on a magical path, wear the Pentacle in a piece of jewelry, often a necklace - it is also drawn onto doorways or created for an altar or spellcasting set up. It not only invokes a powerful symbol for protection, but represents and connects to all of the elements & 'earth magick'.
The Pentagram has a negative association because 'Satanists' hijacked the symbol and reversed it, said to evoke the exact opposite of the divine - which the single upward point on the star points to usually. Of course, Wiccans don't even believe in Satan, which is a Christian belief & construct. 🤔
Paganism was around a long, long time before Christianity took over the Western world, and in an attempt to stamp out Paganism and Pagan's pantheon of gods and goddesses, to have everyone follow their 'one true god' (a male only god) they deliberately used an image similar to the Greek God 'Pan' - a horned god worshipped for centuries as the representative of the divine masculine counterpart to the goddess in Paganism. The Pentagram was even used by early Christians.
So as you can see, it's a symbol with a lot of history and controversy - but the true meaning is beautiful - the upward star points to the divine, each point represents something in order of density. All the way from spiritual energy at the top, then to fire - then to air (freeflowing elements) - to water - and to earth (basal, fixed, matter). So the Pentagram also represents the connection from the divine - to the physical.
It is used for protection by the 5 spiked wands and a pentagon shape in the centre symbolising the womb.
Well, I hope you learnt more about this symbol if you didn't before - blessings, Sarah 🙏
