The Pentacle has been a symbol of protection for millennia. Associated with magic, paganism, and mysticism; its earliest connections were with the worship of the Earth Mother Goddess. Ancient astrologers also discerned a pentagram within the heavenly motions of the planet Venus. The Pentacle is a protective design because the unbroken lines hold all evil influences outside. It has been called the “Symbol of Man,” truth, and completion.
Alchemists have connected the elements of the Earth with those of Man—flesh and bones to Earth, blood to water, breath to air, body heat to fire, and the soul to ether.
