Free Spells - Wicca Symbols

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! :)


  1. Your pentacle is upside down. A witch draws her pentacle pointIng upward. The only thing that carries us how you draw it.

  2. Sorry to disagree with the above poster but I don't feel this is the case at all! There is so much misinformation about upside down pentacles and it causes people to judge when it's not necessary.

    Far from repesenting the dark side, it is often used successfully by normal witches for banshing spells.It turns energies around in a harmless way.

    There is no, single one thing that carries us all. The power comes from within and this is what you need to learn to tap into - not to rely overly on any outside tools.

    Blessings :)

  3. Fran is right if the pentacle was NOT in the circle then it is from the other side a witches pentacle is always in a circle in fact an upside down pentacle represents a withc in their second degree

  4. Thank you Aingeal. Always happy to have constructive criticism or to be corrected but can't say it's not nice to be agreed with too!

  5. Fran, I have had numerous people ask how to draw a pentagram! there are many ways, each depending on faith- having numerous meanings. In England I have seen century old fire places (of Wicca and Druid decent - Devon England) with them in cirlces upside down, sideways etc.. I have not seen any evidence of a particular position being used for a particular reason way back when (maybe I have not found them yet!) - when do you think various positional meanings started!?

  6. Fran, just read my post and realised that the originator of the blog is also an anonymous - It's not me! I am an annymous due to lazy reasons of not uploading things to PC's such as photo's, Since posting the above blog I have spoken to several people about this subject, each peron has given me a different explanation? oh by the way - if your picture is testament - whohh mama! I am 34, blue eyes, hobbies are.....lol - all blessings to you.
