If you are a true Wiccan or starting to practice Wicca, then I don’t have to tell you the reasons why you should wear one. And if you don’t have one, then don’t waste time reading this and get one!
Now, for those of you who are still learning the sacred belief of Wicca with the hope of one day being a full-fledged and powerful Wiccan, read on and let me tell you the importance of wearing a Pentacle.
A Pentacle is the single most powerful symbol of the ancients. It traverses many religions and is often misinterpreted as a dark symbol and harbinger of dark magick. Do not be misled by this misinterpretation, and although I could go on and on about its significance and importance, you only need to know 5 good reasons for wearing one:
The Pentacle is the best representation of Nature. The Four elements of Nature: Earth (lower left point), Air (upper left point), Fire (lower right point) and Water (upper right point), are best represented by the points of the Pentacle. And the fifth point pointing upwards is the quintessential fifth element of nature, which is the Divine Spirit.
The number 5, is very mystical and magickal, and essentially human. We have 5 fingers and toes. We have five senses - sight, hearing, smell, touch and taste. We perceive 5 stages in our lives – birth, adolescence, coitus, parenthood and death. In Christianity, 5 was the number of the wounds of Christ nailed on the cross. In the Muslim faith, there are five pillars and five daily prayers. And, the WICCAN KISS is fivefold – feet, knees, womb, breasts and lips.
Your Pentacle can be worn as a talisman or amulet. When carved from wood, your pentacle is linked to nature and the natural world. When made from gold, it gives off mental clarity, energy and wisdom. And, when forged from silver, your link to the Moon and Psychic energies are at its strongest.
As a Wiccan with the ability of spell casting, your Pentacle as a Talisman is a very powerful tool. Often inscribed with a “name of power”, such as an Angel, God, Spirit and others, these talismans are used for a specific purpose and intent, aiding you to have control over the power and energy governed by the entity inscribed on your Pentacle.
The Pentacle is the absolute symbol of protection. If you must dabble in the art of spell casting and conjuring, you MUST have the protection that only the Pentacle can lend to you. As a talisman, you can use it to cast open, protect and close a circle. It can be used in ceremonies and rituals as protection and spiritual control. The symbol represents your protection from negative, evil energies and against attacks from spirits and demons. It also allows you to conjure, command and control those forces which may harm you.
