The Pentagram! A Symbol Of Positive Good & Evil Incarnate!

The five pointed star, more commonly known as the pentagram is used as a positive symbol when upright, & a negative symbol when it is reversed. Wiccan White Witches use it as a symbol of spirit over the elements or the five senses. Whereas Satanic Occultists reverse it as a symbol of evil or Baphomet, the goat headed Demon. Free Masons also use the symbol of Baphomet in their practices as well!

When encased within a circle the pentagram is called a pentacle & serves many Wiccan & Occult rituals. This symbol represents Magic in it's purest sense! Many use it as a religious symbol!

So what does the Pentacle mean? It all depends on how you look at it!
