The apple is a much loved symbol of Paganism. Cut an apple width ways & it reveals a pentagram of seeds. The 5 points represent the elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water & Spirit (also East, South, West, North & Within). A circle around the pentagram represents the eternal cycle of life/nature & of wholeness. The pentacle is believed to provide protection against evil for both the person & the home, worn as an amulet or used to guard entrances to the home through windows & doors.
