It is worth noting that in popular tarot decks, such as the Rider Waite deck, the suit of pentacles is represented as the five-pointed star with a circle enclosing it.
This could be one of the reasons for that interpretation amongst many Wiccans.
Over time the pentagram has appeared in a huge range of cultures and belief-systems, and meanings have varied in each one.
In Egyptian hieroglyphics the pentagram enclosed in a circle (argued to be labelled as the pentacle in many circles) meant the netherworld – the underworld where the dead roamed.
In ancient Mesopotamia pentagrams have been found, and one dates back to a similar period as the jar in Thebes – 3200BC.
Whether seen as a symbol of magic and light, or of evil and dark – the pentagram is probably one of the first things that people associate with Wicca when it comes to symbolism.
One of the reasons the interpretation of and uses for the pentagram varies so widely is because it is in fact an ancient symbol, dating back thousands of years.
