FUN TRIVIA:  One of the most widely misunderstood symbol – the pentagram – is often feared by many.  The earliest use of the pentagram dates all the way back to 3500 BC. The Chaldees of Mesopotamia inscribed the symbol on their pottery and other artifacts. The Hebrews used the pentagram as a symbol of truth and to represent the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures. The Pythagoreans of ancient Greece were fascinated by the mathematical purity of the symbol and viewed it as a sign of perfection. Ancient Babylonians used the pentagram to represent the gods and religious beliefs of their culture.

During the medieval era, Christians believed that the pentagram symbolized the five wounds of Christ and it was used to ward off evil spirits. For the first few hundred years after Christ’s death, the pentagram was the primary symbol of the Catholic Church.   It was not until the 19th century that the church decided to associate it with evil.  Some believing that there is a marked difference between an upright pentagram and an inverted pentagram. The inverted pentagram was adopted by the Church of Satan as its logo. Or the elements being above spirit meant chaos.

A number of groups still use the pentagram a symbol of harmony and spirituality. The temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are adorned with the pentagram. The symbol of the pentagram is also used in many Wiccan ceremonies. Wiccans see the star as symbolizing the four elements of air, water, earth and fire, which are perfectly balanced to create the fifth element of spirit. The pentagram ring is a popular talisman worn by Wiccans and other Pagans. This star of life is often the main feature on their altars and is a widely used ritual tool, often representing feminine energy.  with the arms and legs and head of the goddess being the 5 points and the pregnant belly in the middle.
