Besom / Witch's Broom - Folklore & Symbolism -
Since Ancient Times, the Witch's Broom or Besom has been symbolic
of Fertility & Cleansing. They are used to sweep the circle (or
any area) free of unwanted energies, so that the desired energy can
fill the space. The long-standing tradition of 'jumping the broom'
at weddings and handfastings was done to ensure the couple's happiness and fertility.
Pentacle Symbolism - The Pentacle or Pentagram is a 5 pointed star that is
often, but not always, encircled with the circle of Unity. It represents
the domination of Spirit or Divine Will over base matter, and the
elements of Spirit, Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The pentacle has
been a symbol of protection and spiritual growth for millennia. At
its points are the stages of Life: birth, initiation, consummation,
repose, and death, with the circle bringing us back to birth in the
cycle of reincarnation.
