The Magickal Pentagrams that we offer come from a number of different magical traditions and were designed for many different purposes.
Pentagrams have been used as symbols for eternities, including by Christians as in Christianity it was thought to represent the five wounds of Jesus.The pentagram has magical associations, and has become very meaningful to people who practice Neopagan faiths.The pentagram has long been associated with the planet Venus, and the worship of the goddess Venus, or her equivalent. It is also associated with the Roman word lucifer, which was a term used for Venus as the Morning Star, associated with the bringer of light and knowledge. It is most likely to have originated from the observations of prehistoric astronomers, who were the first to note that when viewed from Earth, successive inferior conjunctions of Venus plot a nearly perfect pentagram shape around the zodiac every eight years.As a representation of the elements, the pentagram is involved in the Wiccan practice of summoning the elemental spirits of the four directions at the beginning of a ritual. The outer circle of the circumscribed pentagram is sometimes interpreted as binding the elements together or bringing them into harmony with each other. The Neopagan pentagram is generally displayed with one point up, partly because of the "inverted" goat's head pentagram's association with Satanism; however, within traditional forms of Wicca a pentagram with two points up is associated with the Second Degree Initiation and in this context has no relation to Satanism.

Each piece is supplied with a leaflet giving full details of its origins, benefits and qualities, together with a sample ceremony to enable you to consecrate and empower it.
