The Pentagram or Pentacle is the symbol of a star in a circle. The pentagram always has 5 points. Traditionally, there is one pointing upwards. Each point has its own meaning. The upward point of the star is representative of the mind. The other four points all represent one of the elements: earth, air, fire and water. The spirit and all elements contribute to life and are part of all of us. The meaning of the pentagram may also represent the search for Divine Knowledge. It is an ancient concept that is reflected in the earliest written ritual texts in Babylon and in Celtic and Indian traditions. One of the symbolisms of wearing a pentagram as a piece of jewellery can therefore depict the connection with the elements and the respect for the earth. It can also be worn as a protective symbol or to indicate a commitment to the world of magic and divine wisdom. The most important symbolism of the pentagram is therefore the fact that it has 5 points. Many centuries-old cultures had a fivefold symbol, which was very important for their religious and spiritual life.
