Wicca symbols can bring more meaning to your spells than you possibly realise. There is certainly so much history behind them, but the importance goes beyond that. The Wicca symbols represent all that you should be aiming to connect with and understanding as a witch or as someone wanting to perform spells.
There are many to go through and I will likely go into more detail about the others as they crop up in following posts. But today I’d like to go into the Wiccan pentacle as it is the core symbol and will give you a good grounding.
Used in so many rituals, the pentacle is the 5 pointed Wiccan symbol to represent earth, air, fire, water and spirit. It brings you together with the universal elements around you and calls on their power to aid you in your spell work, also asking you to give back your own spiritual energies as an offering. You are at one with the world around you and it flows back and forth; giving and receiving.
As it represents the universe around you it is often used to give protection so you can keep a pentacle on your altar as a permanent fixture, constantly providing you with assurance that you are perfectly safe. The pentacle can also be part of a spell ritual and you can include the drawing on the pentacle in the air using an wand or your athame.
One example of how to use a pentacle is in a banishing spell to rid yourself of a negative person or to stop them affecting you. Imagine a pentacle over their body or across their forehead. Imagine the pentacle with a blue, glowing radiance about it (blue also offers psychic protection) and imagine them being distanced or taken back away from you. You will feel their impact diminish.
Free Spells and lots of blessings! :)
