Protection Pentacle Pendant
Design by Holly Bird
The Pentacle has been a Protective Symbol for thousands of years. Its earliest connections were with the worship of the Earth Mother Goddess; from whose Sacred five pedaled apple blossom and seeds the symbol may have been derived. It is the simplest form of star that can be drawn with a single line - hence it is sometimes called the Endless Knot. Other names are: the Goblin's Cross, the Pentalpha, the Witch's Foot, the Devil's Star, and the Seal of Solomon (more correctly attributed to the hexagram).
Like the Circle the Pentacle is considered a Protective Symbol because its continuous lines keep all evil out. It has also been called The Symbol of Man, of Truth, as well as a Symbol of Completion.
Ancient Alchemists paired the Elements of the Earth to those of Man: Flesh & Bones to Earth, Blood to Water, Breath to Air, Body Heat to Fire, and the Soul to Heavenly Ether.
It has long been believed to be a Potent Protection against evil and demons, hence a Symbol of Safety.
The Double-Sided Protection Pentacle measures approximately 1 3/8 inches and includes an adjustable black cord.
