pentagram

In humanity's age-old quest to understand its place in the universe, our ancestors turned to geometric forms to represent the connection of the Self to all elements of life. The pentagram serves as a guide to higher consciousness. Its origins date back to Pre-Babylonian Sumer. Many ethnic and religious groups have venerated this symbol. To the Jews, it symbolized the Pentateuch, the five books of Moses. To the early Christians, it symbolized the five wounds Christ suffered on the cross. Since the Middle Ages, priests, magicians, and philosophers have considered the pentagram a powerful symbol of protection and esoteric knowledge. The pentagram is made up of five triads representing the metaphysical elements Spirit, Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. These triads, when joined together, signify the unity of the divine and the physical. This controversial symbol continues to exist today as a visual representation of the five-fold path toward spiritual growth and enlightenment.
