The pentagram 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 pentagram is often a circle. For many Wiccans and Pagans the pentagram 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 pentagram was commonly seen as a symbol for good and for protection against evil. In Taoism, a pentagram shows how the five classical oriental elements (earth, water, wood, fire, and metal) are related. Today, the pentagram is the most commonly used symbol of Wicca.
