ARE PENTAGRAMS A SIGN OF EVIL?

The short answer is NO. The pentagram is a common Pagan/Wicca symbol yet its origins are actually from ancient Sumerian where the symbol was used to represent the human Physical body and Elemental form, for example... Head, Arms and Legs is the physical and Earth, Air, Fire and Water is the elemental.


Pentagram and the Physical Body

Did you know the pentagram was used in early Christianity to represent Christ’s five wounds.?

The Christians themselves believed the symbol was protective and was worn on jewellery. The pentagram was believed to symbolise Christ. During the 14th / 15th century there was a rise of occult practises (the study of astrology, magic, alchemy, etc.) that all used the pentagram symbol. The Christian church of that time accused the practices of heresy, so naturally, anything associated with the occult became names as evil and bad.


Hollywood and the Pentagram.

In the 20th century, Hollywood started to use the pentagram as a symbol of evil and devil worship which now makes some people believe the association of evil with the symbol is true, when in fact, the pentagram has no historical ties to evil or “Satan-worshipping." Even the Church of Satan who used an upside down pentagram with a goat head do not worship the devil and are simply atheists.


The Elements of the Pentagram

There are five element associated with the Pentagram. Four of matter (earth, air, fire and water) and one of spirit. See below for the correct representation of each element.




So what does the pentagram mean now?

As a Pagan / Wiccan religious symbol, the open pentagram represents an open, active approach. A circled pentagram contains and protects. The circle symbolises eternity and infinity, the cycles of life and nature.
