The pentacle is the star that stays steady and on course. The crescents represent wisdom and intuition. The moon is constantly ebbing and flowing through process. As we move through life, through a moon cycle even through a day and we flow consciously through various phases and their accompanying energies. The heart at the bottom reminds us to look within for our answers and the knotwork binds them all together.
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.
