It is called pentalfa, pentacle or pentagram or five-pointed or flaming star, as it is known in the Gnostic schools, it has always been assigned very mysterious powers. No evil spirit passed by where it is exhibited, and therefore it is used in magical ceremonies as a garrison, because the spirits of darkness lack power over who is located inside it or who has it. In the middle ages it was considered a symbol of immense power and was used for health and safety in both the physical and spiritual sense, and the magical five-pointed star was located in the west window of the south wing of the abbey of Westminster, is one of the emblems still existing in proof that the believers of yesteryear were deeply versed in occult sciences. The pentagram expresses the domination of the spirit over the elements of nature, is the bearer of infinite powers, it is up to each one of us to discover their meanings Symbology: These four Hebrew letters (right to left) called tetragramaton, are the four figures that translated literally mean Yahweh, this word being the oldest form of pronunciation. Basically they mean: He = Mystery, infinite wisdom. Vav = Cause and effect, is the middle term the relationship between active and passive, the verb and the voice. Yod = Matrix the beginning and genesis of life. YAHWEH is the name of God. The reason of this name is due to the Jewish superstition, of not being able to pronounce it, for fear that it was blasphemous. Many people pronounce the tetragrammaton using the word “Jehovah”, but Jehovah can not be the correct pronunciation since in the Hebrew language there is no letter that sounds like “j” or “j”, the pronunciation that the Jews use for this same name is yahawah.
Around the pentagram we find the word tetragrammaton in a circular form.
tetra = means four in Greek.

ton = in the Greek language at the end of any word, denotes the union of two, three, four, five or more units or letters in a single name or unit.

If the tetragrammaton is within a circle, it represents the totality of wisdom, protection, healing, it is the infinite wisdom and the power of the goddess: the earth, the moon, the cosmos, the circular line does not have beginning or end; It is always a cycle that ends and starts again.
The pentagram, or five-pointed star, is not satanic. Pythagoras used it as a symbol of health and his followers used it to recognize each other. In medieval times, some Christian knights used the pentagram as their symbol.
For modern Wiccans the pentagram means many things; the five points correspond to the elements of air, earth, fire and water, with the top corresponding to “spirit”. The staff in a circle can also represent a human with his hands and legs stretched out, surrounded by universal wisdom or the “goddess” – humanity in union with its environment. Many sorcerers and other pagan practitioners do not wear the pentacle, but they have other symbols of special significance to them.
