Pentagram : Not to be feared but to understand it.

I would like to talk about the meaning of Pentagrams:

The Elements, The Origins, A Symbol of protection.

The Elements:
Those are the same elements we have here on earth that we know of already. We have Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. The 5th element is associated with the Pentacle and the Pentagram is called The Divine Spirit, which is the supreme being, I know it goes under many names, regarding each religion, and the most common word used is God. Whichever you choose to use it all means our higher power.
So, you take all the earth elements and the divine spirit and it creates a pentagram. The ultimate power to protect us is our Supreme Being. We are all connected to this planet why do you think its called, Mother Earth.

The Origins :
It is a 5 pointed star, sometimes with a circle around it, which is called a Pentacle. It is one of the oldest symbols in the world. It dates back some 8000 years and every religion has used it at one time, also it is being used on 2 flags of different countries, and built into many churches and bldgs as a symbol of the divine spirit.
Throughout time it has been used by Wiccans and pagans as a universal symbol for their philosophy and religion and Satanists have distorted its design and the history of it and used it in evil practices and philosophy.
Was first discovered but an astronomical researcher named Tigris-Euphrates in 6000 B.C.E. later it was found and used by the Sumerian scholars believed that it represented the 4 corners of earth and the” vault to heaven” or the 5 visible planets in the night sky: Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, and Venus( with Venus a representative Queen of Heaven.) It was a theory that they had but since it was such an ancient theory there is no concrete evidence behind it
It has also been know as the human pentagram, for when we stand straight up with our legs apart and our arms stretched out, we have all 5 points of the pentagram, our head, our 2 arms, and our 2 legs.
By the mid-nineteenth century, further discovery had developed amongst occultists regarding the pentagram’s orientation. With a single point upwards, it depicted spirit presiding over the four elements of matter, and was essentially “good”. I have discovered that the true intention of that person who uses the pentagram is the deciding factor.

A symbol of Protection and unity:

The pentagram symbol was used in ancient times but the Christians as a symbol of the five senses or “5 wounds of Christ”. In the 14 th century a poem Sir Gawain, the symbol was on his shield. the symbol’s origin was said it represented King Solomon and explains that each of the five interconnected points represents a virtue tied to a group of five, the five senses, five fingers, takes courage from the five joys that Mary had of Jesus, and exemplifies the five virtues of knighthood. With all this, it’s not hard to see why it was a symbol of protection and to fight off evil.

In eastern Asian symbolism, WU XING symbolizes the 5 elements of Chinese tradition ( medicine, acupuncture, feng shui, and Taoism). the picture above is of the greek elements.

Greek elements
In ancient Babylonian times, the use of the pentagram was used as an apotropaic, which is a charm to protect from evil.
I believe in a person’s true intention in anything they do no matter what it is, can be good or evil. I also believe that a solid education and constant learning in things that you don’t know much one is better than just assuming it’s bad or evil.
I have been wearing the pentagram and the pentacle on me for years and have it throughout my house and no evil has ever touched me. in other religions and philosophies if there is always a protection symbol with a history of good and bad, based on different stories being told.

The Pentagram is a symbol for spiritual shielding and ethereal world intelligence. In fact, it makes the bad spirits and other negative elements powerless when faced with this symbol while on the other hand, drawing the good spirits. Those who have this symbol have infinite possibilities at their disposal, meaning you may choose to use or not to use this symbol.
both the Pentagram and the Pentacle are two of the most powerful symbols in the world of Magic and can be used for protection as nothing can compete with the absolute protection that these symbols can give you. You may use them for keeping negative energy away.

 

A quick Thanksgiving post

I wanted to write a short letter to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. To send many blessings to you all and hope you all and your family are blessed and loved.

My opinion and views on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, is that too many people commercialize them both . we all got to remember they are about family and all the blessings you have received thru out the year and all that you have now.

I have found that if you wake up every morning and give thanks and gratitude for all you have and all the little blessings you have received and continue to receive, more comes into your life to be thankful for and grateful for.

All these things to me are what we need to celebrate on these holidays not so much the food or presents but the family and the love you share, not to say the food is not important, and we know it is. if you have a feast give thanks for it

 

 

 

Pentagrams & Pentacles-Their true meanings & history.

elements

My Introduction to you all,

 

Hello my name is Holly Jarrett and I have created this website on Pentacles and Pentagrams, which have been misunderstood for far too long and I wanted to shed some light and educate people on something that should not be feared.

These 2 symbols hold a lot of power, and they stand for the 4 elements and our divine spirit. I have acquired such a passion and love for these and wanted to share it with everyone.

I was born and raised around the Metaphysical World, which encompasses a variety of things. These have always been a part of my life. I wanted to share my knowledge with others to help anyone curious about knowing more.

The Definition of The Pentacle

When you hold it upright, it represents the unity of all the elements, harmony, creation, and balance. When you hold it upside down or inverted, it represents chaos, disorder, and destruction. In all, it’s an amulet used in magical evocation and it is up to the user to decipher the energy it will promote. The true power it holds is based on the intention of the person that is holding it or using it.

A pentacle is a 5 pointed star with a circle around it and a symbol that witches and Wiccans recognize. it’s also, known as a protection sigil. it is associated with Earth, which is a grounding and stabilizing element that can bring peace and comfort to the wearer.

It is a pentagram with a circle around it that symbolizes unity, infinity, and the cycles of nature. It represents the spirit over the physical elements. It is so ancient that is dates back as far as Sumeria and goddesses. it is also considered to be a talisman or amulet.

The pentacle was later adopted as an altar tool and it symbolizes the element of earth on the altar. It has been used to cleanse, charge, and consecrate items.

Pentagrams- it’s meaning.

A pentagram is a 5 pointed star that symbolizes the divine spirit, and the 4 elements of earth. This divine symbol that is found across the world on churches and many other bldgs for it stands for unity and protection. It does not stand for evil or anything negative. In this world that we live in, we are all connected and one. for nature is everywhere and it is everything this symbol stands for.

OK let me a list and explain a few other things that make up this star. It is created out of Elements which are – Air, Earth, Water, and Fire and The Divine Spirit, is our supreme divine being, there are your 5 points. Also, the lines of the star have meanings which are Respect, Love, Gratitude, Forgiveness, and Compassion.

It was once commonly used by Christians to symbolizes the 5 wounds of Jesus. The pentagram dates back to Pythagoras, the Greek mathematician, and philosopher. He said that number 5 was the number of a man because of the 5-fold division of the body. We have a head, two arms and two legs so we are in a sense a pentagram ourselves.

In Greek, the letters for the 5 elements create an anagram for the name Hygeia, which is the goddess of health. it is basically her symbol, therefore it was a symbol of protection and can be traced back to that time period, as people would use the pentagram to protect themselves by invocating the goddess of health.

In ancient Judaism, it was a symbol found in mysticism. It was related to the top part of the Tree of Life. In Kabbalah, it stood for the books of the Torah. The Pentagram has had a long history of uses as a pagan symbol, Judaeo- Christian symbol. It had no single meaning, it represented many things, mathematics, the human body, words, religious rituals, and magic.

In Europe, 8000 years ago it was a symbol with mystery, intrigue and deep spiritual meaning. Many countries have used it, like Islam, Christianity, Morocco, Ethiopia, to ancient Jerusalem. Back in the Sumerian age, they called it ” the vault of heaven”. In Norway and Sweden, the pentagram was used to ward off trolls and evil, they drew the symbol on all doors and walls.

The Pentagram was embodied as a symbol of the female principle by a 5 petaled rose, found in many Gothic cathedral ornamentations, they were truly subtle just like secret pentagrams being used the decorations.

The Elements – more in-depth information

Earth – is the element of the north. Air – is the element of the east. Fire – is the element of the south. Water – is the element of the west. Spirit- is the element of the center of your self.

Water = Healing, expression, peace, compassion, emotions and intuition. Air = intuition, knowledge, renewal, change, intelligence and the arts.

Fire = passion, inspiration, intuition, creativity, protection. Courage, and daring. Earth = fertility, wealth, abundance, strength, wisdom, stability, and physical endurance.

Spirit = the soul, the divine, the mystery, and manifestations.

Conclusion

As you all can tell both symbols are part of the earth and our nature, so when I said earlier that we see it as all of us being connected that is because we are connected as one being in spirituality. I truly believe we are all connected in one way, for I see all of us on this planet as one race and that is the human race. I hope this sheds a more positive light on these two amazing symbols, just remember knowledge is power so instead of fearing something or denying something is good or exists just educate yourself in some new things every day. One thing I can say is these symbols have been around for thousands of years and always stood for protection and unity. In the psychic realm, both symbols are used in a hasty manner, which is in Tarot Cards, for 2 of the main arcana suits are Pentacles and Pentagrams.
