The Pentacle is a Pentagram encased in a Circle. The Pentagram is a stylized Five Point Star with each point having it’s own meaning, but always with one point pointing upwards.
Extensively used in both East and West, cutting across multiple continents and civilizations, this ancient Sacred Symbol is at least 8,000 years old. It has been popularly and widely accepted by Mystics across the world as a Power Generator of Positive Energies and a Protector from Negative & Evil Energies, apart from others.
The Number 5 is prime and has always been regarded as mystical and magical, yet essentially ‘human’. A few examples of this five-fold symmetry : 5 Senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste), 5 fingers/toes on each limb, 5 Stages or Initiations in Life (birth, adolescence, consummation, parenthood and death), etc.
The word “Pentagram” was most probably coined from the Greek word “pente” meaning five and “gramma”, a letter. The Pentagram is the simplest form of star shape (with five points) that can be drawn unicursally – with a single line, as a continuous loop, hence it is also called the Endless Knot.
The Pentagram has a long and complex history as Sacred Geometry right from the days it was scrawled in the caves of ancient Babylonia. Pythagoras himself considered it as the very portrayal of Divine Life embodying hidden, luminous knowledge and an Emblem of Perfection – he called it as a PentAlpha – Alpha being the first letter in the Greek Alphabet. In fact, the Pentagram is still known as “The Star of Life” all across Europe. Many cultures have associated many different metaphysical explanations to this universally popular divine shape. The simplest and the most widely accepted significance being that the 5 points symbolize the 5 Elements or Pancha Pranas or the Pancha Bhoodhas : Earth (Bhoomi), Water (Jala), Fire (Agni), Air (Metal, Vaayu), and Spirit (Ether, Sky, Space, Aakash).
Significance : An Open Pentagram (without a surrounding circle) represents an Energy Generator apart from balancing the 5 Elements. A Circle around a Pentagram (Pentacle) contains and protects. The Magickal Circle symbolizes eternity and infinity (unity and wholeness too), the cycles of life and nature. The Circle touching all the 5 points indicates the concept that all the 5 Elements all connected and inter-related.
The Pentacles and Pentagrams are powerful but down-to-earth energy shapes that for all practical purposes do not have any religious connotations whatsoever and have been in use for thousands of years – knowingly or unknowingly – amongst people of all origins, cutting across religions.
