A viking pendant with pentagram.
The Pentagram or Pentacle is the symbol of a star in a circle. The pentagram always has 5 points. Traditionally one point is facing upwards. Each point has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the spirit. The other four points all represent one of the elements: earth, air, fire and water.
The spirit and all the elements are believed to contribute to life and are part of us all. The meaning of the pentagram can also represent the search for Divine Knowledge. It is an ancient concept; it is mentioned in the earliest written ritual texts in Babylonia and in Celtic and Native American traditions.
Therefore, union with the elements and respect for the earth is one of the possible symbolisms of wearing the pentagram as a piece of jewellery. It can also be worn as a protective symbol or to indicate involvement in the world of magic and divine wisdom.
Thus, the main symbolism of the pentagram stems from the fact that it has 5 points. Many ancient cultures had a five-point symbol, which was very important to their religious and spiritual lives.
