Different Witchcraft signs and Their Meanings

Different witchcraft signs are high in meaning. already the most simplistic signs used by practitioners of the Craft can have complicate, highly suggestive meanings. Simple and complicate witchcraft signs can be used to decorate personal items, magickal objects, or they are used in spell workings; the signs ultimately contain intense meanings that come to represent ideas, conventions, ideologies, operations, emotions, thoughts, or they serve as an emblem that simplifies recondite ideas or concepts.

Goddess Symbol: The triple moons symbol is associated with the Goddess; the symbol consists of one crescent moon facing left, a complete moon, and a crescent moon facing right. The moons are connected suggesting that all three phases of the moon, representative of the Goddess in her guises as maiden, mother, and crone, are all connected and embodied in one Goddess. The first moon facing left is the waxing moon: the moon phase associated with new beginnings. The complete moon is representative of the mother aspect of the Goddess; sometimes the phase is identified as the “pregnant moon,” thereby likening the complete moon with the complete belly of a pregnant female. The third moon facing right is the waning moon: the moon phase associated with all endings. consequently, the symbol becomes a representation of the triple Goddess, and a symbol of the phases of womanhood. Since the three moons represent the beginning, middle, and end phases of the lunar cycle, this symbol also connotes that all things come from the feminine Divine and return onto Her.

God Symbol: The God symbol is produced out of a course of action, representing the complete moon, and a crescent moon on its side on top of the time of action. The two points of the crescent point upward, indicative of the Horn God or the “Stag King:” other references by which the God or masculine aspect of the Divine is identified. The suggestion of a horned deity is in reference to the character God of fertility and has nothing to do with Satan or Satanic worship. This symbol is sometimes substituted with drawn antlers in order to represent the Stag King or the God of all wild creatures.

Pentacle and Pentagram: The pentacle is a five-pointed pentagram or star enclosed in a course of action. The pentacle has a single point in the ascendant, while an inverted pentagram has two points in the ascendant. The pentacle, having five points, is representative of air, fire, water, earth, and Akasha: the combination of the latter four elements. The points of the pentacle also come to represent the human body, the cardinal directions or the four airts: East, South, West, and North. the time of action enclosing the pentacle signifies life, death, and rebirth, in addition as life’s never-ending cycle. The complete symbol comes to represent the vicinity of Magick, and the pentacle is a symbol of protection. The inverted pentagram, despite being known as a symbol of higher Magick and the “expert” over the elements, has a wide range of negative connotations associated with it in addition. The inverted pentagram was adopted by the Church of Satan as its official symbol, and Eliphas Levi described the inverted pentagram as a symbol connoting chaos or an inversion of order. consequently, the meaning of the inverted pentagram is changed depending greatly upon the context in which it is used.
