The pentagram or in this case the pentacle (a five point star within a circle) was known to the Ancient Greeks, with a depiction on a vase possibly dating back to the 7th century BC. Pythagoreanism originated in the 6th century BC and used the pentagram as a symbol of mutual recognition and of wellbeing.
The symbol of a star instills in oneself a feeling of awe and wonder, staring up into a clear night’s sky you can experience inner peace and solitude. At times you may feel the absolute dependence we have on the universe and the insignificance of our everyday problems upon gazing out at the billions of stars and realising our fleeting existence relative to all time.
