You should know by now how powerful the Pentacle is as a symbol of protection. In fact, it is the most powerful symbol of protection to Wiccans. You might find yourself wondering, am I using my pentacle the right way? Am I making full use of its protective powers? If not, can I magnify its protective powers? The answer is, yes. Believe it or not, there is a right way and a wrong way to wear a pentacle.
1. Aim for maximum exposure
Wherever you are, there will always be people who are uncomfortable with the sight of a pentacle. And it’s normal to fear being judged and mocked. But the pentacle should always be exposed to be able to protect you fully. Hence, the pentacle necklaces, pentacle earrings, and pentacle shirts, and so on. Consider yourself an educator, and take it upon yourself to dispel the myths about Wicca, which is a practice of certain Wiccan traditions like the Corellian Nativisists.
2. Cover a wide base
There is not just the pentacle necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings. There are more ways the get the most out of the pentacle’s protective powers. There are pillows, bags, notebooks, mugs, and whatnot. The more gaps to cover, the more protected you, your family, and your house will be.
3. Cleanse and bless before you receive and before and after magick
Yes, this is very important. And this includes all things that feature the pentacle especially when they are new and when you use them in magick. The thing is, things that carry the pentacle symbol have this quality where they suck in the energy from the surroundings, and that includes the bad energy of the person who was packing it. Maybe that person had an argument or was having a bad day. You know, that sort of thing.
And anything that bears the pentacle symbol should be cleansed and blessed before your rituals and after your rituals. You wouldn’t wanna bring negative energy into your rituals, and when you are at your most vulnerable during, you wouldn’t wanna take it with you after your rituals.
The best way to cleanse and consecrate anything is by using white sage or sage smudge sticks and let the object slice through the fumes of the burning sticks.
4. Choose a pentacle with crystals
A pentacle with, say for example, four crystals will create a circle of protection around you. Crystals placed in the cardinal points, creates a space of protection. Four consecrated crystals placed on the ground forming a circle will make it hard for bad spirits and negative energy to cross or can even be used to trapped a spirit in the middle. The same concept applies to crystals in pendants, bracelets, and earrings. This is why all magickal tools have to be blessed and consecrated before and after a ritual.
There’s also the fact that crystals have not only protective powers, but also blocking, magnifying, focusing, and healing powers as well, making them a favorite of healers and witches alike.
So there you have it. I am sure there are more ways to use your pentacle for protection but here are the most basic ways you need to have down pat. Hopefully this will help you, your family, and your home remain safe and always out of harm’s way.
