Pentagram

   A five pointed star which is used extensively in ceremonial magic. If the pentagram has one point upward, it represents the deity, controlling nature with the mind and the microcosm. With two points up, it represents Satan. The five points of the pentagram represent the five senses. Also called a Pentacle.
