The cauldron is a symbol of the creative forces of transformation. The round shape and receptive properties of cauldrons make them sacred to the Goddess, and it is associated with the element of Water. However, given that the heat of a fire is necessary for much of the transformative work of a cauldron, some view it as sharing association with both Water and Fire.
A cauldron is great for magical work, as it can be used for fire spells and/or as a place to allow spell candles to burn out safely, and can hold magically charged ingredients for potion-making. Great for use with charcoal incense, herbs, resins and etc. It can also be used as a cone incense burner.
The pentacle is perhaps one of the most recognizable symbols that Wiccans and Pagans use. The base symbol is the five-pointed star, which can be drawn non-stop without lifting pen from paper. Enclosing the pentacle is often a circle. For many Wiccans and Pagans the pentacle is a symbol that represents magic and magical workings as a whole. For others it’s used as a talisman, a connection to the divine, to open and close circles and a myriad of other ritual uses. In the past, the pentacle was commonly seen as a symbol for good and for protection against evil. In Taoism, a pentacle shows how the five classical oriental elements (earth, water, wood, fire, and metal) are related. Today, the pentacle is the most commonly used symbol of Wicca.
The Triquetra symbolizes the three faces of the Goddess, balance of the Mind, Body and Spirit. The circle signifies the ever-turning cycle of life, death and rebirth.
Germanic neopagan groups who use the Triquetra to symbolize their faith generally believe it is originally of Norse and Germanic origins. The symbol is also sometimes used by wiccans and other pagans to symbolize the Triple Goddess, or as a protective symbol.
In Wicca, trees are living things that are filled with the essence and energy of the Elements and the Divine. The Tree of Life also shows you how everything is connected; from the smallest organisms to our Earth being a part of the solar system, and the solar system being connected to the galaxies beyond.
The Triple Moon is used in Pagan and Wiccan teachings. It represents the threefold nature of the Goddess: As maiden, mother and crone.
