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.
Much of fairy folklore has come from
Italy, where they were known as the Fatae or fated ones. These often-fierce
beings were known to bestow gifts upon people they are attracted to, such
as: beauty, wealth and kindness. Sidhe (shee
) literally means 'people of the hills,' and
is the Gaelic term for this mystical race. Superstitious people felt that
if they called the Sidhe by their 'proper' name, they might accidentally
invoke them -- thus the custom of calling them the 'Fair Ones'
