In Witchcraft and mystical practice an image of a Divinity may inspire our imaginations and serve as an emblem or symbol of our personal connection to that Spiritual Force, Guide, God or Goddess and/or Magickal Intention. These  Goddess charms may be worn as pendants or carried for object links to specific intentions. A link can be forged with the spiritual power that the charm represents, and it can also serve as a home for a Spirit which is welcomed to reside within it.

    Goddess Face Pentacle: this image of the Great Mother is superimposed on a Pentacle ...The Pentacle signifies the rulership of Higher Mind over the lower elements of Human Nature. The use of this Divine Symbol signals the awakening of Cosmic Consciousness and the Initiation of Human Consciousness, manipulating its environment by reaching beyond the realms of physical form and perception limited to the five physical senses. The origins of the Pentagram go far back to remotest historical antiquity, as far back as Pre-Babylonian Sumer. It has been venerated by many other civilizations. To the Jews, it symbolically designated the Pentateuch, The Five Books of Moses. Early Christians recognized it as pointing out the five Stigmata — the wounds Christ suffered on the Cross. It has survived under a variety of titles, including “The Druid’s Foot” and ‘The Witch’s Star.”To the followers of Pythagoras, it was called “The Pentalpha,” being composed of five interlaced A’s or Alphas. As Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, we can view the Pentacle as symbolically portraying the Unity of All things in the midst of multiplicity.Ceremonial Magicians throughout the Middle Ages considered the Pentagram to be among the most potent, holy, and protective of symbols — being stronger in this way than even the Cross. Those involved in Occult Practices could be certain that wherever the Pentacle was displayed, there, evil had no power. Traditionally, each of the five angles has been attributed to the Five Metaphysical Elements of the Ancients. EARTH (Lower left-hand corner) FIRE (Lower right-hand corner) WATER (Upper right-hand corner) AIR (Upper left-hand corner) Surmounted by SPIRIT at the topmost point. This becomes a graphic portrayal of Spirit ruling over the four elements and with the Pentagram placed within the Circle (symbol of eternity). The Pentagram, with the single point buried in the depths of matter, has for many centuries been misunderstood by the ignorant and those of ill intent as emblematic of the powers of evil and darkness. However, to the true student of symbolical philosophy, it represents Spirit submerged and bonded into the material elements*. While the inverted Pentagram is representative of Spirit's descent into matter, the Pentagram aright, to those of Spiritual Perception, represents the redemption of Spirit from matter by ruling over it. ©1986 e.v.
