The Pentagram is the Wiccan symbol of protection, but when it's pointing down as it is in this picture it is Satanic. Each point in the Wiccan Pentagram (right-side up) means a different element, Light,Water, Earth,Fire and Air. The circle means protection. When it's upside-down it means the opposite. Wiccan was created in 1950 and is basically a mash-up of a lot of different pagan religions. The Church of Satan was created in 1970, they took the Wiccan pentagram and the Christian cross and flipped it, declaring it their symbols.

um, LaVey NEVER claimed to OWN the symbol... he even said IN the Satanic Bible that he got the idea form another book.... and he tweaked it a bit....

They have their own symbol, The Satanic cross (not the upside down cross, which is really the Cross of some Saint whose name I've seem to forgotten)

Yeah, that's the one.

It started like that, but then people, inculding the Satanists themselves, started think THAT was the actual symbol and it just turned into a big mess.

just because something is pagan doesnt mean that its satanist

I'm fully aware of that.
But the symbol is satanist.
Pagan's symbol, the star pointed up.
Satanist's stars point down to hell.

No. :meow:
I'm sorry If I mislead you.
But, I meant the pagan star usually points up.
And the satanist star points down to satan.

I don't know why I love the pentagram's design... It's just how it folds over itself that makes it so fucking cool. I'm not sure if it looks better right side up or up side down (probably right side up because I'm not a Satanist, but you're probably not, either), I'm a Christian BTW.

Agreed with SweetSweetAngst... Unless you where aiming for that look - then... Grats, I guess >_>

Other then that it's very well done, I love the random words and scripts in the background and how some of the text is even in the foreground too. Do the words actually mean something or where you greeking? :P

You shouldn't draw the pentagam with the point facing down-- That is the symbol of satan worshipers, and completely demeans the Wiccan symbol.

On the contrary, it's actually quite rude to act as if insulting a religion older than Christianity is no big deal. It's like burning a a crucifix, or degrading the Star of David. And technically, you posting a "design" on an art website is practically begging me to come and give you my opinion on your work. How can you get better without constructive critisism? ALSO, you should think about who you're insulting.

The pentagram dates back to ancient Sumer where it was used on jars, probably to protect the contents from spoilage. Epilias Levi (sp?), a Cabbalist in the medieval period of magick, gave the point down pentagram as representing the descent of consciousness into matter.

Since the traditional interpretations are far older than the pentagram's association with Wicca, he isn't doing anything wrong. Furthermore, Satanism in the theistic sense IS a religion, and LaVeyan Satanism IS a valid life philosophy. So, really, it's you who's being closed minded, not him.

Here's a hint: Wicca doesn't own the Pentagram, it never has and it never will. Wiccans could do with a dose of what they claim they want from others: Tolerance.

And a little research never hurt anyone. If you want to claim it's a symbol of Wiccan religion you'd better be ready to accept that it's a symbol of many other things to many other people.

In other words grow up and leave him alone.

Well, as it's a symbol, it can represent anything a group chooses it to represent. Symbols have no inherent value beyond what we choose to give them. That said, the pentagram does have a history, and it's history is more rooted in protection and elemental correspondences than in representing religious movements.

I'm basically annoyed whenever I hear someone get whiny over which point is "up" because the people who complain generally have no idea what they're talking about. Like the guy above.

firstly thats not construtive critisism, it has nothing to do with the piece. secondly i had no intention of insulting ANYBODY making it! thirdly, religion or beliefs was the last thing on my mind when i made it, as i disregard any sort of religion other than my own belief in myself and others around me. so whatever ur beliefs dont bother my with it.
