Afraid of the Pentagram?

The  Misinterpreted Pentagram

The poor Pentagram is the most misinterpreted, misunderstood  symbol.  In terms of our grids, the flow of the energy through it have nothing to do with personal beliefs. Energy is energy and it flows through everything you see and don’t see!

Symbols represent what YOU attach to it.

The tradition of placing a star on American homes can be traced back to the 1700s in New England, according to one Web site. Farmers mounted five-pointed stars on their barns as a sign of good luck, like a horseshoe, or simply as decoration. … The star is also used as the symbol of some fraternal organizations.

Just the facts – Not subjected to opinion!!

The Pentagram is found all through nature from flowers and leaves, apple core and star fish – even the path of Venus! I couldn’t do better than this well written article by The Smart Happy Project!

Pentagram in Nature

The Pentagrams place in Geometry with high regard for the roles mathematics and geometry play in the structure of the universe.

The Golden Ratio: phi (Divine Proportion)




A regular pentagram colored to distinguish its line segments of different lengths. The four lengths are in golden ratio to one another.



Higher dimensions[Wikipedia]

Orthogonal projections of higher dimensional polytopes can also create pentagrammic figures:

4D 5D
4-simplex t0.svg
The regular 5-cell (4-simplex) has five vertices and 10 edges.
4-simplex t1.svg
The rectified 5-cell has 10 vertices and 30 edges.
5-simplex t1 A4.svg
The rectified 5-simplex has 15 vertices, seen in this orthogonal projection as three nested pentagrams.
5-simplex t2 A4.svg
The birectified 5-simplex has 20 vertices, seen in this orthogonal projection as four overlapping pentagrams.

All ten 4-dimensional Schläfli–Hess 4-polytopes have either pentagrammic faces or vertex figure elements.

The Pentagram has long been used to represent strength and protection.

In Popular Religions

Throughout history, various people and cultures have assigned different meanings to the pentagram. While some individuals see it as a controversial or evil sign, others consider it a sacred symbol.  The pentagram is proof of how human beings create and attach meanings to objects in our world.

  • Christianity –  Used as an ancient symbol of the five senses, representing the 5 wounds of Christ, Joys of Mary, the 5 Virtues
  • Bahá’í – The five-pointed star is a symbol of the Bahá’í Faith. – known as the Haykal (Arabic: “temple”‎)
  • East Asian symbolism – (Wǔ Xíng) are the five phases, or five elements in Chinese tradition. They are similar to the ancient Greek elements, with more emphasis on their cyclic transformation than on their material aspects. The five phases are: Fire (火 huǒ), Earth (土 ), Metal (金 jīn), Water (水 shuǐ), and Wood (木 ).
  • In Taoism, a pentagram shows how the five classical oriental elements (earth, water, wood, fire, and metal) are related.
  • Paganism – Neopaganism – which is other religions based on man as one with nature) the pentagram represents the five elements, and the continuous flow of life.
