The pentagram is the most powerful symbol for a mage. The five-pointed star gives him power over the elements and, like the circle, has no beginning or end. The symbol represents perfection and totality. The points point to the four elements while the fifth corner refers to spirituality.
The circle is the most powerful witch symbol and symbolises the divine. It represents infinity and eternity. It is the place for performing rituals, as ancient religions have no buildings. Those who enter the circle are separated from the outside world and shielded from energies.
The triangle’s magic number three symbolises ascension to heaven and refers to the holy trinity. The square represents firmness, immobility, shelter, security and tangible perfection. The moon, growing and waning, represents rebirth and the magical forces that bring change. It is a ship of light that carries the soul through the darkness to the light of the new day.
The table forms the workspace around which everything takes place. It faces north, the source of magical forces. The inscription on the stone was discovered in a cave dedicated to Hermis Trismegistus, the patron saint of magicians.
