Wiccan Goddess Magick & Pentagram Potency
In Wiccan religion the five pointed star pentagram is symbolic of faith in the five wounds of Jesus.
The first known uses of the pentagram are found in Mesopotamian writings dating to about 3000 BC. Each point in the pentagram signifies forward, backward, left, right, and "above." These directions also have astrological meanings, representing the five planets Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, and Venus as the "Queen of Heaven" (Ishtar) above.
