In this post, I'll talk a little about one of my absolute favorite symbols: The Brooms of Elder!
The brooms of elder consists of 3 symbols that makes up a Pentacle.
Now, this symbol is mostly used at jewelry and I think that the reason it's so popular has something to do with the fact, that it's a very non-threatening symbols...
...when people see it, they don't recognize the Pentacle right away, but just see a beautiful and interesting pendant.
Anyway, let's talk about the symbols.
There's no doubt that the broomstick has always been associated with witchcraft. But, it has very little to do with flying away (unless you take something like this into account) and much more to do with sweeping away evil spirits.
The brooms is also a representation of the air element.
In the middle of everything, you'll see the sacred elder leaf. It represents the water element and is used in many rituals and spiritual practices.
Many years ago, people used the elder tree to make defensive wands.
Surrounding it all is a circle made of Blackberry Wine. This is also associated with the water element.
The circle is a feminine symbol and represents the Goddess and Protection. The blackberry wine is often about connecting with the gods as well as material goods (money and goods).
Now, these 3 symbols forms a Pentacle. I am sure you already know the ins and outs of the Pentacle...
...but, in short, the Pentacle is all about Power, Protection, Connection with nature and the Gods and a whole lot more.
