Pentacle or Pentagram?

Sterling silver Tree of Life pendant featuring PentagramWitches of all walks and skill¬†ask this question…and the answer often varies between resources. To simplify the this, think about the distinction as the difference between 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional:

  • Pentagrams are the shape of 5 lines forming the familiar star-shape, with or without the circle.
  • Pentacles are talismans or parchment with potent magical symbols (such as a pentagram) or evocations inscribed on them.

To make things confusing again, your pentacle jewelry that features (or simply is) a pentagram design can be referred to by either name!
