The script around the outside of this pentacle is said to be a relic from the Atlantean days. These magical letters, called the Theban Alphabet, are thought to be connected to the Cabalistic Enochian Script of the Elizabethan astrologer and magician, Dr. John Dee. Through “angelic communication” the angels, Michael and Uriel, gave to John Dee this magical “divinely inspired “ alphabet.
Sometimes called the “Witch’s Runes”, this script is very popular among the elemental crafters of today. These very ancient runes have been used from time immemorial as a magical alphabet from which spells and inscriptions were written. The powers of these magical letters are protected by the pentacle they surround.
The pentacle is a five-pointed star formed by one continuous never ending line. It is an ancient symbol honored by many cultures that carries many meanings—a symbol of truth, a sign of completeness, protection, and a symbol of mankind; it is closely associated with the Earth and the Earth Mother Goddess.
