Pentacles are symbols of balance and protection. The Pentacle encased in a circle is known as a Pentagram. Each of the 5 points has their own meaning. The upward point represents Spirit. The remaining four points represent an element; earth, air, fire, and water. The encasing circle is representative of the circle of life; it has no end and no beginning.
The pentacle is a symbol of protection. Most religions on Earth attribute special powers to the number 5, which represents the human body; 5 senses, 5 oriental elements, 5 pillars of Islam etc. There are also 5 virtues; Love, Wisdom, Truth, Kindness, Justice. It is in the efforts we make to manifest these 5 virtues that the Divine protection usually attributed to the pentacle becomes effective.
