Note: Many 'wicca'
participants are taught that satan is simply a relatively modern and
convenient invention of the Christian church. With that belief they
therefore reject the references to satan described below. That lie is
easily dealt with. The pre-Christian Old Testament mentions
satan nineteen times. Indeed, the ancient Hebrew manuscript of
Job, the oldest of the 66 'books' that make up the Bible
- and therefore written long,
long, long, before the Christian church emerged - mentions satan some 14 times.

pentagram above as it signifies contempt for traditional spiritual and

Thaumaturgic Triangle Used for purposes such as spell casting or summoning up demons.

to draw in demonic power. This area can be of any size in any area - with 'items' at the

The Pentagram takes many forms and is
used by New Agers, Freemasons, Ladies of the Order of the Eastern Star, the Mormon
Church, the Orange Order, satanic heavy metal bands, plus major occult groups such as the
Golden Dawn. Celtic priests called it the witch's foot. In the middle ages it
became known in Britain and Europe as the goblin's cross, the devil's sign and the
wizard's star. Among the Druids of Great Britain, it was the blasphemous sign of the
Godhead. Amongst the people of Babylon it was a magical charm. It is used
extensively in Black magic and can be used in three ways. The star may be broken at one
point by not permitting the converging lines to touch. It may be inverted by having one
point down and two up, or it may be distorted by having the points of varying lengths.
When used in Black magic, the pentagram is known as ' the sign of
the cloven hoof' or the footprint of the devil. The star with two points upward is
also called the 'Goat of Mendes' because the inverted star is the same shape as a goat's
head. When the upright star turns and the upper point falls to the bottom, it signifies
the fall of the Morning Star.
