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 the early religions, pagans or country-dwellers, who were rejected by the Church for worshipping Nature, believed that the goddess Venus and the planet Venus were both represented by the pentacle.
Known also as the Eastern Star of 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. One of the oldest symbols on earth, the Pentacle is representative of the goddess and the sacred feminine.
