Symbology

Blood of the Pure Symbology – Preface – The Pentagram

Pentagram
(pentacle, pentangle, pentalpha)
 
 
 
In alchemical texts, the four elements (in Latin):
Flatus
Ignus
Aqua
Terra
superseded by Light, or Divine Energy
illustrated the process of creation
Fiat Lux, or, “Let there be Light.”
 
In Wiccan/Pagan lore, the pentagram symbolizes the five elements- 
Earth
Air
Water
Fire
Spirit.
 
The Wiccan emblematic pentagram faces point upward to symbolize the triumph of Spirit over Matter; the Satanic pentagram is transposed, point downwards, to symbolize Earthly Gratification, or the triumph of the Individual over Dissolution.
 
Some Wiccan grades also utilize a reversed pentacle, although for different purposes.

Sophia CarPerSanti was born with her mind lost in another world. Not too strangely, writing is her only passion, and so there's not much one can do to correct that.
