Gold Pentagram Wooden Box

The pentagram is perhaps one of the most recognizable symbols that Wiccans and Pagans use. The base symbol is the five-pointed star, which can be drawn non-stop without lifting pen from paper. Enclosing the pentagram is often a circle. For many Wiccans and Pagans the pentagram is a symbol that represents magic and magical workings as a whole. For others it’s used as a talisman, a connection to the divine, to open and close circles and a myriad of other ritual uses.

Whether seen as a symbol of magic and light, or of evil and dark – the pentagram is probably one of the first things that people associate with Wicca when it comes to symbolism. One of the reasons the interpretation of and uses for the pentagram varies so widely is because it is in fact an ancient symbol, dating back thousands of years. The pentagram has been used to represent religious and spiritual ideas from a wide array of beliefs and religious practices.

As with many modern traditions that are a blend of ancient symbolism and modern interpretations, the pentagram can be used in a large variety of ways, with different practitioners and groups finding different energies and uses for the symbol. Because the upright pentagram has become so synonymous with modern Wicca, many practitioners choose to use it as a symbol when undertaking magical working – such as placing a pentagram on their altar, or drawing representations of it in sacred art and ritual practices.

Pentagrams are often used to open and close circles and add potency and power to ritual work. One of the most interesting uses for pentagrams amongst modern Wiccans is in banishing. The ‘Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram’ (LBRP), is a ritual that has become incredibly well known and originated in ceremonial magic with the Golden Dawn – drawn from the works of Eliphas Levi. In modern Wicca, pentagrams are often ‘drawn’ using a wand or other magical tool in order to banish unwanted energies – much like in the LBRP practice. This shows again the eclectic and inclusive nature of Wicca, where energies from many traditions and belief systems are drawn together in a powerful synergy of naturalistic magic.

Interpretations of the elements of the elements of the pentagram vary. In early Christian symbolism they are said to represent the wounds of Christ. In chivalry they represent the five virtues of generosity, piety, courtesy, chastity and chivalry. In Jewish symbolism the pentagram was ascribed to the five books of the Pentateuch – which taken as a whole represents spiritual truth. In the Wiccan tradition they represent the four elements – Fire is the lower right, Earth the lower left, Water the upper right and Air the upper left. The point at the top symbolises Spirit – the place where the elements come together and connect us to source.

For many Wiccans, the pentagram can bring incredible benefits as way of focusing energy and calling forth protective and effective magical energy. As with many other symbols and ritual tools, often the truth is in the way we choose to use the energy – both as individual practitioners and as groups working magic.
