The pentacle is a five pointed star within a circle, the points representing the four elements (fire, water, earth & air) and ether (spirit) and the circle represents eternity as most pagans believe in the eight-fold year and the spiral dance. Inverted it has been known to be used by satanists and some wiccans to represent materialism.

A five pointed inner-connecting star inside of a circle. It is by almost every Religion to resemble something different. Here are some of the basic ones.

Wicca-Wiccans use the Pentacle to represent the 5 Wiccan Elements, Wind, Water, Earth, Fire, and Spirit.

Christianity-Christians wear the Pentacle as a representation of the 5 wounds of Jesus. The 5 wounds were inflicted to Jesus during his Crussifiction. Pentacles in Christian beleifs are used to make Demons run away, or protect the wearer from Satan.

Peganism-Pegans use the Pentacle depending on which Pegan God(s) they worship.

Guy 1:Hey dude, why are you wearing a Pentagram?
Guy2: I'm not, this is a Pentacle, the exact opposite.

1. A symbol of importance to the science of witchcraft and the religion of paganism.

2. A fashion statement of teenagers who want attention.
Those who know the true power of the pentacle don't wear it casually.
