There are many Wiccans who do not like to wear a pentacle necklace because they are not comfortable with sharing their beliefs. And there are also those who CANNOT wear a pentacle necklace for family and societal reasons.
A lot of Wiccans among us still have to hide their faith and still have one foot in the broom closet (*wink) simply because not every Wiccan belongs to an open minded family and community. Being peaceful beings that we are, Wiccans do not like to bump heads with anyone who do not understand their belief.
A Pentacle necklace, compared to other Wiccan accessories have the power to stun non-Wiccans. Because they think you can put a hex on them using a pentacle necklace, or a beam of light will come out of your pentacle and swallow them whole! Whatever it is, it is surely very imaginative.
For those of you who would like to take the subtle road to expression, here are 5 alternatives to wearing a pentacle necklace:
A Pentacle T-Shirt or Hoodie may cover a wider area than the pentacle necklace, but it is somehow less imposing. Why? Because a pentacle t-shirt will usually feature a fun design that throws off the “scare factor” of the image of the pentacle. Nothing scary or demonic like that.
This is not a list created to make other non-Wiccans comfortable with your belief. These are also not listed just so you can better hide your beliefs. No, not at all. These are just ideas as to how you can express yourself in a more subtle manner and you are not quite ready to tell everyone about your beliefs yet.
