Two powerful symbols join as one in this gorgeous pendant featuring the tree of life with its branches interlaced with a delicate pentagram.
The upright pentagram is an ancient symbol used by Christians, Jews and Wiccans as a positive symbol of light and life.
It is known to represent the idea of guidance by spirit, or mind over matter - the ability to use your willpower to control the lower aspects of your being.
It is also known to represent the feminine forces of nature, such as creation and abundance and the spiritual aspects of life, where each one of the five points of the star is assigned an element and a quality of the human spirit:
- Earth - Physical endurance and stability
- Fire - Courage
- Water - Intuition and emotion
- Air - Intelligence
- Spirit - the Divine
Together with the tree of life, the meaning of the pentacle is enhanced by the tree's symbolism of growth, connectivity and continuity.
This lovely pendant features the pentagram and a tree with branches that seem to "grow" right to the edge, where one can imagine the branches extending beyond the field of the pendant, giving this necklace a primitive, ancient, almost sacred feel.
Comes with a beautiful antiqued rope chain that matches the look of the pendant.
