Witchcraft Hex signs are simple symbols that you can use to help in working magick. The symbols are always easy to draw. You can carve these symbols onto candles when doing rituals or spells. You can draw them in sand, on paper, stitch them onto charm bags, and any other way you can think of to incorporate them into your magickal workings. Along the lines in history I think the term hex has gotten a bad name.
The Meaning Of A Pentagram - there are actually several meanings for the symbol and none of them support the common belief that it is a symbol of evil. It represents the human star, with four limbs and the head. It is a protection against evil. It represents the five elements (air, water, earth and fire with the spirit sitting on top). It was once even a Christian symbol, representing the five wounds of Christ. An open pentagram is aware and active - a closed pentagram contains and protects.
