I'm not up to date on my symbols. Thank you!
This person used to live near someone I know and I'm wondering what their cover/robe/jacket symbols mean.

See attached.
Mod cut.

Based on Renaissance-era occultism, the pentagram found its way into the symbolism of modern occultists.

Following Anton LaVey, and ultimately based on a drawing by French nobleman and occultist Stanislas de Guaita (La Clef de la Magie Noire, 1897), the Sigil of Baphomet, a pentagram with two points up inscribed in a double circle with the head of a goat inside the pentagram is the copyrighted logo of the Church of Satan.

lol. I thought it might have something to do with her maybe being a witch. They were strange. They always had blinds closed...didn't socialize with neighbors.

See attached for new pic. What does that mean?

Is this person then more than likely wiccan? I'll have to do more research. I'm not sure what all that means.

Why I'm asking is her husband, early 30s, just died. She was 10 years older (not that that has anything to do with it). He was not sick. Nothing in obit except where he is being cremated.

.....maybe I've been watching too much Dateline.

The symbol in the first picture is an inverted pentagram. It usually represents satanic forces and evil intent. An inverted pentagram represents the downfall of humankind.

I have my suspicions about the origin of that picture since no true Satanist would ever allow a photograph to be taken of them wearing some sensationalist get-up like that, nor be seen with their hands painted red like that. So I'm thinking the picture is taken of someone in a Halloween costume or it's taken from a scene from a horror movie or TV show or some fantasy magazine or something like that.

A right side up pentagram (point up) represents the protection, healing and upliftment of humankind, nature and environment.

The symbol in the second picture is on a computer generated cartoon picture and is just some imaginary fantasy symbol that means nothing and in real human history it doesn't exist. So essentially there is no such thing except in the picture. It looks like somebody was trying to create a perverted mimicry of the Masonic Seal. They did a poor job of it. Somebody has made up that picture for whatever the fantasy or sci-fi story or comic book was that the picture was created for.

If your neighbor wears or uses an inverted pentagram then she is not a Wiccan or a witch, she is a sorceress (or more likely is a foolish wannabe who thinks she is being a sorceress). And she's not a real satanist because even satanists have standards to maintain and would never allow anyone to see them in a get-up like what's depicted in either of the above pictures.

Wicca is a religion and Wiccans (witches) do not worship satan or any other evil forces and they do not ever wear or use inverted pentagrams for anything. Wiccans may use right side up pentagrams for healing and for protection from evil forces or as a binding seal on a positive invocation or evocation. As I mentioned above, a right side up pentagram (point up) represents the protection, healing and upliftment of humankind, nature and environment.

Yes, you should do some research to gain a better understanding of occult symbols.

Wow, thank you. Well we live near the beach but you may be right. When looking at the first pic closely at her legs and that cloak, it does look photoshopped? That cloak isn't moving and when is there ever no wind at the beach?

Even if that is not her, she has posted that as her profile pic. I take it to be her beliefs. When we'd see her in the yard, she'd be dressed oddly.

So according to the symbols on her coat, you think she is a a sorceress? I'll have to look that up. I don't watch those type movies or keep up with these type things. I just want to know if she worships the devil, is a witch, etc.

This person is 44 years old so don't think she is a wanna-be kid just playing around. This seems to be her life.

some people in Soweto wear swastikas.
my opinion is they have no historical references.
this pentagram could be a design feature from a clueless Chinese manufacturer.

It means she has an instagram and likely dapples in cosplay, performance art, shock art, whatever.

Why do you care?

Who cares what she believes if she isn't bothering you or yours?
