This is used as a base for many types of magick especially consecrations as it is very good at blocking evil. It is associated with the North, Female energy and Earth. The pentacle itself can be made from all sorts of different materials including brass, wax or wood etc.. In any upwards direction it is used for protection, blessing and positive energy.
