Pentagram by Nekotaku Pentagram by Nekotaku
EDIT: okey.. i know a lot of you must have searched on "pentagram" and found this.. woo hoo <_<
Please take a look at the rest of my gallery too.. most of it is a lot of better than this. This fucking sucks.

PSP8, about one hour.


The pentagram resembles the five elements fire, earth, water, air & ether. Though ppl often think it's a satanic symbol, it's not.
If you turn it upside down though, so with the two points for earth & fire op, it is satanic, because fire stands for passion and earth for possesions.

lol, nice Edit there. If you think this sucks, you could make another that you like better. There's just a huge audience for pagan art, especially glowing purple pentacles like this. :)

Most agreed as well. -finally people who understand what the pentagram truly is, not just something misunderstood as something evil or satanic.
Wonderful design on this by the way :heart:

Um, Pentacle if I correct you. The point up is a Pentacle and the point down, the Pentagram. I got this information drilled into my by Wiccan and Pagan friends.

Just a note - the top point can also be referred to as your own spirit, and the circle connecting the points represents harmony between the elements. Great job <3

satanists (real satanists, not LaVeyan Satanists) flipped the star upside-down, drew a freaking goat's head in it (since Lucifer appearently takes the form of a goat, go figure), and decided it was theirs, even though the pentagram stems all the way back to traditional Wiccan. Now everyone thinks it's related to Luci even though it isn't.

Good explanation! But, there is no traditional "wiccan", Wicca is neo-paganism, it was created ~70 years ago. The 'old wicca' would be paganism.

Actually, an upside down pentagram does not make it satanic. It still is a symbol of the five elements, or a symbol of the ram headed god, but that does not make it satanic for all accounts, only when used in satanism or demonism. Infact, it is only used in a very FEW instances in satanism. And the fifth element as you refer to it, is really spirit, not the chemical compound ether, at least not in wiccan/pagan/satanic culture.

Aether (also spelled ether) is a concept used in ancient and medieval science as a substance. The aether was believed to be the substance which filled the region of the universe above the terrestrial sphere. Aristotle included it as a fifth element distinct from the other four, Air, Earth, Fire, and Water. Aether was also called Quintessence (from quinta essentia, "fifth element"). Quintessence was also supposed to be a definition of pure energy. Its force is imagined to be like a lightning. This element also has the power of life. Its Platonic solid was the Dodecahedron. -From Wikipedia

A "point down" pentacle is nothing new- nor is it necessarily Satanic when it appears as such. Historical depictions of the pentagram were as likely to be points down as point up- a distinction between one or the other was rarely made by the ancients. Even today, one must not assume a point down pentagram is Satanic, as it is just likely to be Masonic, Wiccan, or simply upside-down. Some inexperienced Wiccans will occasionally claim that a point down pentacle is Satanic, but such a symbol has at times represented the Wiccan horned God, and is still today an emblem of the Second Degree initiation in Gardnerian Wicca. -from [link]

okey okey duuude. relax. I don't practice magick, i am not a wiccan nor do i have any contact with people who are. As far as i knew a pentagram pointed down is a satanic symbol, and as it turns out it doesn't neccesarily have to be, but you don't have to make such a big problem about it.. just like a crucifix is not neccesarily a christian symbol, it's generally accepted as such.

I know, I guessed as much. I was providing you with information about it. Had I been attacking you for it, you would know. I was informing, and my sig is because I see alot of people use the pentagram online, and in every day life w/o knowing what it actually is/stands for/used for, and so on. I just don't think that people should use a symbol they don't understand or know about. That's what's up w/ my sig.

All that I ask is that you keep the info in mind for the future. I know not alot of people practice magik. That's why I try to inform them when they are using such a powerful symbol in every day life w/o knowing exactly what it is. Sorry if you mistook my post for attacking you. There would have been alot of exclamation marks and bold and italicized lettering if I was attacking you ^^;. Sorry for the confusion on my intent.

Yeah, I found this through searching for "Pentagram," too... =P

It looks really cool I love how it's made of light, with the enlarged "shadow" over it. It very much looks like a symbol of power this way...

The pentagram was also a symbol of Venus, as well (both the goddess and the planet)... I just think the design looks cool. :D

Wicca isn't the only religion that uses the pentagram as its symbol. Really it's just the newest one... mostly popularized by some british dude named Gerald Gardner joining a coven in the 1930's or 40's... pagans have been using the symbol for thousands of years though. (I'm pagan, but not wiccan) on a side note, awesome pic.
