The Raven is associated with the Goddess Morrigan (Phantom Queen), shapeshifting, Magick, initiation, the Dark Moon, and particularly as a messenger carrying information to and from the Spirit world. The energy of the Raven can help one gather courage in time of change and guide one through difficult times. It is in the calm of night, both awake and in our dream state, that we can learn the most about ourselves. Raven energy will help facilitate growth and bring healing.
The pentacle has been worn as a powerful protection symbol for thousands of years. Associated in turn with Magic, Paganism, and Christian mysticism, its earliest connections were with the worship of the Goddess, from whose sacred five petaled apple blossoms and seeds the symbol may have been derived. Like the circle it is considered a protective design because of its continuously connecting points.
The pentacle has been called the symbol of man, truth, and completion. Alchemists paired the elements of the earth to those of man - flesh and bones to earth, blood to water, breath to air, body heat to fire, and the soul to ether. The five points also correspond to the five stages of life - birth, puberty, marriage, rest from labors, and death.
