Pentagram Pendant, Flower of Life – Sterling Silver
The Pentacle, also known as the Pentagram, is a symbol considered both divine and magical in many cultures. Because the ratio of line segments in the pentacle all equal PHI (or 1.618), the five pointed star has always been the symbol for beauty and perfection. Among early religions, pagans who were rejected by the Church for worshiping Nature, believed that the goddess and planet Venus were both represented by the Pentacle. Known also as the Eastern Star or Ishtar, the planet Venus traces a perfect pentacle across the ecliptic sky every four years. So astonished were the ancients to observe this phenomenon that Venus and her Pentacle became symbols of perfection, beauty and the cyclical qualities of sexual love.
