Jewelry and the Meaning and Power Behind Occult and New Age Symbols

16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.” – 2 Cor. 6

Some Jewelry is demonic

If you have any items in the following graphics, then I would discard it as soon as possible. As posted here before, certain items can have a demonic attachment. I have heard testimonies where a person got rid of such items, they felt themselves or the environment become much lighter.

Some of these items are made based off of symbols. It is believed that there are metaphysical attributes of certain objects and symbols. Christian authors Ankerberg and Weldon wrote:

“…pagan idols are not merely artistic pieces of dead wood. They often have a power behind them, as idol worshipers know only too well. Indeed, many objects used in occult practices carry spiritual potency. Ouija boards, tarot cards, I Ching, rune dice, crystals and gems, astrology charts, talismans, dowsing rods, and many other physical implements used in occult, idolatrous practices may become channels for demonic powers” (The Coming Darkness, 277).

Kurt Koch, who was a Christian and an expert in the occult wrote:

“Destroy all occult objects like amulets, talismans, fetishes, mascots, letters from heaven, lucky charms, threatening letters, figures of gods and cultic objects belonging to non-christian religions are crystallization points for demonic powers” (Occult ABC).

I can recall a Buddhist acquaintance I used to have who wore a serpent (satan is described as the serpent in Rev. 12:9) pendant over her neck (sort of like the one in the picture above). In a very respectful manner and in passing, I merely suggested to her about receiving salvation in the Lord Jesus Christ. She took great offense to it and we ended up not talking again after that. Her overreaction was out of character. I suspect her pendant could have been conducive to her strong aversion to the Gospel for salvation, as I know such objects can have demonic attachments or focalization in certain objects.

This is true especially when it comes to some jewelry. Even those in the occult world admit to it.

Laurie Cabot, a witch, comments:

“Many Witches wear crystals as jewelry, along with other gemstones that have magical powers. Jewelry is a way to have magic on your body without anyone knowing it but you and others who are wise in the ways of the Craft. In general, Witch jewelry is worn because it directs energies to various parts of the body” (quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

Sybil Leek, another witch, bragged about the supposed protective properties of jewelry. She states:

“Jewelry and metals have their own vibrations and corresponding numbers, and again there is a link with the vibrations and colors of the planets. A favorite piece of jewelry will take on the vibrations of the person wearing it, especially over a long period, which gives the vibrations time to build up and become forceful. Charms, amulets and talismans have been worn throughout the ages not as a form of decoration but as focal point that can be charged with the appropriate vibrations. We are not free from the use of such things even today, for there is an increasing business in the sale of charms, even though now they be only part of a dangling bracelet. It seems that the amulet and talisman are gaining a new lease on life WHETHER OR NOT THE BUYERS AND WEARS ARE AWARE OF THEIR SIGNIFICANCE” (quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

This may explain why God wanted the Jews to burn pagan items and to not have them in their home (Deut. 7:26). In Joshua Ch. 7, God indirectly punished a man with death for keeping for himself pagan objects, which were cursed.

So what is the background and meaning of popular symbols made into jewelry or other items that are associated with the occult, the New Age, and pagan gods? You’ve probably seen at least several symbols in the following graphics many times before, but had no idea of its very ungodly (or anti-Christian) roots. Some of the occult symbols are even used in various occult practices today. Symbols play a crucial role in their ceremonies and rituals, such as with black magic (which is extremely demonic). Sadly, despite being used in occultism, some of these symbols are popular today in different contexts.

One former New Ager said:

“Here are some new age symbols found in jewelry. When professing Christians wear these items, they probably are not aware of the symbology. However, these jewelry symbols could be a stumbling block to others because they broadcast that you are a new ager. If someone also thinks of you as a Christian, they could be confused that it’s okay to blend new age and Christianity when the Bible clearly shows that they cannot be blended.

These jewelry pieces do not glorify God. Instead, they glorify paganism, idolatry, and polytheism. Therefore, it’s best for professing Christian women not to wear these items.

While God created crystals, and they are in the Bible, the particular shape of crystal points and beads have been appropriated by new ageism. In the New Age, these crystals are idols used for divination.

The ohm symbol is Sanskrit for a blasphemous invocation to panentheism.

The moon worship pendants are idolatry of worshiping the creation instead of the Creator.

The chakra balancing jewelry glorifies unbiblical practices.

You as a professing Christian woman might not see your jewelry as an idol, but it could be a stumbling block for others who do hold that idolatrous view of these symbols when they see you wearing this type of jewelry.” Source

The (Inverted) Pentagram

One source reads, “The inverted pentagram features a reversed five-pointed star, showing two points above. This symbol is associated with black magic, and it signifies contempt for the traditional occult and spiritual values. Aside from those meanings, the inverted pentagram can also represent Baphomet or Satan wherein the two tips symbolize the goat’s horn. Typically, the inverted pentagram is used in casting spells and occult rituals to conjure evil spirits.”

In the book Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated said something similar:

“Satanists and witches love the pentagram, and we are told that the pentagram is one of the main symbols of witchcraft and occult­ism. It has always been used in ritual magic and is used for divination, the conjuration of spirits and to summon demoniac help. In the Dictionary of Mysticism, we learn that the pentagram:

‘is considered by occultists to be the most potent means of conjuring spirits. When a single point of the star points upward, it is regarded as the sign of the good and a means to conjure benevolent spirits; when the SINGLE POINT POINTS DOWN and a pair of points are on top, it is a SIGN OF THE EVIL (SATAN) and is USED TO CON­JURE POWERS OF EVIL.

[…]

the pentagram really has a very evil connotation no matter how it is drawn. With one point up it represents Lucifer and with two points up it depicts Satan.”

Occultists, New Agers, magicians, Satanists, and witches all claim the pentagram as one of symbols and hold it in high regard. Symbols are said to be representative of ownership.

The Evil Eye

One source states, “The evil eye symbol (🧿) has been found through thousands of years of history across cultures, including in Latin America and parts of Asia. The symbol, most often depicted as four concentric circles in the shape of an eye, is used to ward off variations of evil intentions. More recently, it’s trended on the pages of fast fashion websites and manifestation TikToks.

In much of the Middle East and North Africa, the symbol wards off ‘nazar’ — a curse motivated by the envy of others that can bring about bad things in your life. ”

Isn’t it clear how this is a form of idolatry? Only God can really protect one.
Some women are willing to spend a lot of money on vain occult jewelry. Compare with In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; (1 Tim. 2:9); and “Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price (1 Pet. 3:3-4).

The symbol is also supposedly used by someone to cast a curse who feels envious of you. It’s especially popular in the country of Turkey, but getting trendy in America. The curse can be anything from a zit to a car accident.

All-Seeing Eye

The Egyptian Eye of Ra, Eye of Horus, or Udjat or Wedjat eye pendant

Originating from ancient Egypt, the all-seeing eye represents well-being, healing, and protection. The symbol, with the stylized eye with distinctive markings, was believed to have protective magical powers.

“The All-Seeing Eye, also called the Eye of Providence, features an eye set within a triangle pointing upwards. The symbol has numerous interpretations and has been used in various contexts. For some, this symbol represents God’s omnipresence and omniscience, and signifies that God is always watching. The Freemasons also use the all-seeing eye as one of their symbols. It’s considered as the eye of Satan or Lucifer. Although it has opposing interpretations, many cults and organizations use this symbol, and it’s featured on many famous objects including on the one-dollar bill in the United States.” Source

Indeed, the all seeing eye is ubiquitous in the pop culture world. It’s as if it is being deliberately done. Check out this post for more examples.

“The sign is everywhere: In music videos, on magazine covers, on movie posters, in advertisement and so forth. The sheer number of these pictures is simply staggering. Considering these facts, the repeated occurrence of the One-Eye sign simply cannot be the result of coincidence. Indeed, there is a clear effort to have this sign displayed everywhere.” Source

One of the most prominent and cherished symbols of Freemasonry.
Robert Hieronimus, an occultist, wrote: “The single eye, alone or in a triangle, was used extensibely by Freemasons and other secret societies” (Quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated). It is also found on the US dollar bill.

Alice Bailey, who can be considered as one of the “prophetesses” of the New Age Movement, and channeled demonic spirits, and whose husband, Foster Bailey, was a 32° Mason, talked about the eye. “She said:

‘….Behind all the ideas lies the concept of seeing, of a Seeing One, looking on at the created Whole. This same concept is to be found in the fundamental Masonic symbol of the Eye of God which dominates everything within the Temple.’

Bailey then goes on to mention that the “Eye of God” is Shiva (or Siva), the Destroyer. Remember, Shiva is the Indian god who is equivalent to Osiris. Shiva is also a synonym for Satan” (Quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

The Ankh

“The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol that was used to symbolize eternal life. The ankh can be found in numerous artworks of the ancient Egyptians and is often shown fed to pharaohs by the gods. Today, the ankh is associated with neo-paganism.” Source

The ankh on the head of anubis, an egyptian pagan god, who was supposedly a protector of graves, an embalmber, and later replaced by Osiris in his role as lord of the underworld. “Anubis is one of the gods adored in witchcraft. One witchcraft magazine tells how to make an Anubis protection amulet. After the instructions are given, the writer of the article then adds: ‘Anubis can be anyone’s best friend, (He’s definitely mine!) even if He is considered by many to be the most ominous God of the Underworld [hell]‘”(Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

The Hamsa/Fatima

Only Jesus can really protect one from evil (Ps. 20:7). To rely on objects for protection is a form of idolatry. It’s sold as a fashion accessory.

This one seems to be popular among generation Z and commonly used in wall hangings and jewellery.  It is said to be also popular throughout North Africa and in the Middle East and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings. It supposedly protects people from the evil eye. In other words, it’s an amulet or a “good luck” charm.

The Italian Horn

You see that red pendant that looks like a red chili pepper? That’s called the Italian Horn aka leperchaun’s staff or Unicorn Horn.

“One item that is often found on the end of a necklace is the Italian Horn or the leprechaun staff. This was ‘introduced by the lord druids of Scotland and Ireland’ and was ‘used as the instrument of the druids for castrating animals and humans. It has been hexed and is used for luck and fortune. Satanist priests wear this emblem for prosperity, as a charm around their neck.’

‘The Italian horn, also known as the Unicom Horn, is an occult symbol for the devil to bless one’s finances….'” (Quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated)

Upside Down Cross 

Notice the earring. By the way, getting tattoos, especially of occult symbols, can open doors to demonization.

Symbolizes mockery and rejection of Jesus. Necklaces are worn by many satanist’s. It can be seen on Rock singers and their album covers.

Cross of Nero or Peace sign  

Just another symbol that mocks the cross of Jesus. Also know as “The Dead Man Rune”.

According to the book Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated:

“Throughout the last 2,000 years this symbol has designated hatred of Christians. Nero, who despised Christians, crucified the Apostle Peter on a cross head downward. This hideous event resembled the Teutonic cross and became a popular pagan insignia of the day. Thereafter, this sign became known as the ‘Neronic cross.’

The symbol’s origin in history proves it to be the visual mystic character for ‘Aum’ (the split ‘Y’). This is the sacred word to the Hindu. Chanting ‘Aum’ is supposed to help awaken ‘the serpent power of Brahma’ at the base of the human spine. Occultist Albert Pike also identifies this symbol as mystical in his book on Freemasonry Morals and Dogma.

The peace symbol (also called the ‘broken cross,’ ‘crow’s foot,’ ‘witch’s foot,’ ‘Nero Cross,’ ‘sign of the broken Jew,’ and the ‘symbol of the anti-Christ’) is actually a cross with the arms broken. It also signifies the ‘gesture of despair,’ and the ‘death of man.'”

The book also reads:

“The Germanic tribes who used it attributed strange and mystical properties to the sign. Such a ‘rune’ is said to have been used by ‘black magicians’ in pagan incantations and condemnations….To this very day the inverted broken cross–identical to the socialists’ ‘peace’ symbol–is known in Germany as a ‘todersrune,’ or death rune. Not only was it ordered by Hitler’s National Socialists that it must appear on German death notices, but it was part of the official inscription prescribed for the gravestones of Nazi officers of the dread SS. The symbol suited Nazi emphasis on pagan mysticism.”

The Hexagram

From the word “Hex” comes from this emblem.

It is used as a “stand-by for MAGICIANS AND ALCHEMISTS. The SORCERERS believed it represented the footprint of a special kind of DEMON called a trud and used it in ceremonies both to CALL UP DEMONS and to keep them away. 

Former Satanist, Bill Schnoebelen, reminds us: “To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan….” (Quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

Ying Yang

The yin/yang symbol can be seen almost anywhere. It is used in logos, the New Age movement, and of course martial arts.

It is said that “The symbol itself dates back at least to the fourth century B.C., and has been identified with the Eastern philosophical religions of Confucianism, Buddhism, and Taoism. In the Western world it has long been adopted into the symbolism of myth, magic, astrology, and witchcraft” (quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

One book explains the Ying and Yang like this:

“Another ancient magical sign called the yin-and-yang first appeared sometime before the 3rd century B.C. in China. This emblem became a favorite of SORCERERS and mystics throughout the Orient because it, too, embodies so many possible meanings” (quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated).

The concept of yin and yang (also called Tai-gi-tu), also plays an important role in many other occult practices.

An assortment of the type of jewelry you should avoid.

Ouroboros


A snake with its tail in its mouth is called an ouroboros (also spelled oroboros or uroboros). Another form o f the oroboros is a dragon with its tail in its mouth.

It reads as quoted in Masonic & Occult Symbols Illustrated “‘In alchemy a dragon, or more often a serpent, eating its own tail is known as the uroboros. The dragon was a symbol ofthe god Mercury and the circle a powerful symbol ofthe eternal cycle ofnature. Because the uroboros recreates itself by feeding on its own body, it is a symbol of transforming matter, i.e. alchemy itself.'”

Orgonite

What can really be behind the “negative energy” one feels can be demons. That’s how I would describe the presence of what I knew to be evili spirits during a sleep paralysis episode. Source for image.

Closing

I’m not saying all jewelry and wearing it is bad or demonic. I don’t believe wearing a necklace with a cross, which symbolizes Jesus Christ’ death, burial, and ressurrection, is bad. The Bible reads the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing (1 Cor. 1:18). Though one should never think of it as some sort of charm, amulet, talisman, or an object of worship. We should only depend on God for protection instead of any objects. The Bible reads “O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield” (Ps. 115:9), and Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God (Ps. 20:7). Obviously, one shouldn’t wear jewelry with any evil appearance or negative connotation, as the Bible reads to “Abstain from all appearance of evil” (1 Thess. 5:22). Popular jewelry such as the engagement and wedding ring has pagan origins, but it has pretty much been detached from its pagan associations in today’s context. We should exercise discernment and pray to God in the name of Jesus if it is an item permissable to have.

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you can receive Him into your heart, and He can deliver you from darkness and sin and have your name written in His Book of Life.

If you are sincere, you can say this simple prayer to the Father (it doesn’t have to be word for word):

“God, I recognize that I have not lived my life for You up until now. I have been living for myself and that is wrong. Please forgive me of all of my sins, just as I forgive others. I need You in my life; I want You in my life. I acknowledge the completed work of Your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ in giving His life for me on the cross, I believe in my heart Jesus is Lord and was raised from the dead and I long to receive the forgiveness you have made freely available to me through this sacrifice. Come into my life now, Lord. Take up residence in my heart and be my king, my Lord, and my Savior. From this day forward, I will no longer be controlled by sin, or the desire to please myself, but I will follow You all the days of my life. Those days are in Your hands. I ask this in the Lord and GOD Jesus’ precious and holy name. Amen.”
