Oracle chose the Pentacle due to the Noble History of this Symbol
The oldest known use of the Pentacle dates to 3,000 B.C.E., when it was used by the Sumerians and Babylonians to depict angles and provide directional orientation. Early civilizations also used the Pentacle for astrological purposes, assigning the five points to the five planets viewable by the naked eye: Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus
By 500 B.C.E., the great mathematician Pythagoras identified the “Golden Ratio” within the Pentacle, an emblem of perfection that was incorporated into Greek art and architecture. Pythagoras was the first person to refer to the balance of the "Cosmos," and he proposed the soul’s eternal existence through transmigration. Later, his followers ascribed the points of the Pentacle to the five classical elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Ideas.
In 300 C.E., Roman Emperor Constantine used the symbol as a seal and amulet. When the Roman Catholic Church was formed, some Christians adopted the Pentacle to represent the five wounds of Christ, which pierced both of his hands, his two feet, and his side. Others associated the Pentacle with the five senses: Touch, Taste, Smell, Hearing, and Sight.
In medieval times, the Pentacle was part of the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, who had five virtues: Friendship, Generosity, Chastity, Courtesy, and Piety
And during the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci revived the Pentacle by illustrating that the proportions of the human body perfectly align within this sublime shape. The Pentacle also was one of the Tarot Card suits, shown above.
