1. At one time the five pointed star was called the Christ Star...
and was worn by the crusaiders into battle.
I have always taught (as I was taught) that the pentagram is not only a representation of the five elements (and as a symbol of a human being: head=spirit, left foot is air, right hand is fire, left hand is water and right foot is earth) but is also drawn to show the decent of Spirit into matter through the inner-demensions as each element is also connected to a chakra and to an inner plane.
Involking is point up, banishing is upside down or can just be left right side up but drawn from the earth point backwards to spirit..and has absolutly NO connection to the Christian's anti-God, Satan.
My own tribe also uses a star as a symbol but is not always five pointed and is sometimes eight pointed. No matter how many points they used, it was always called The Morning Star. A fitting symbol of The Dawn People.
