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.
The Pentacle bears Theban Script, also known as the Witches Alphabet or Witches Runes, along its perimeter. Theban script is very popular among witches today, often used for writing spells and inscriptions.
It has long been believed to be a Potent Protection against evil and demons, hence a Symbol of Safety.
