Incubus and Succubus
Demons, incubus(male) succubus(female) who seek to have sexual intercourse with sleeping humans.
In medieval European folklore, the incubus is a male demon (or evil spirit) who visits women in their sleep to lie with them in ghostly sexual intercourse. The woman who falls victim to an incubus will not awaken, although may experience it in a dream. Should she get pregnant the child will grow inside her as any normal child, except that it will possess supernatural capabilities. Usually the child grows into a person of evil intent or a powerful wizard. Legend has it that the magician Merlin was the result of the union of an incubus and a nun.
A succubus is the female variety, and she concentrates herself on men. According to one legend, the incubus and the succubus were fallen angels.
The points of the upright pentacle represent the four elements as a physical base for Spirit at the top point. *Spirit dominating matter.*
The points of the inverted pentacle has Spirit at the bottom point with the elements above. *From Spirit grows the physical.*
It represents the Horned God of Celtic paganism, Cernunnos, who is usually pictured with antlers. He is the God most used to represent male fertility, often called upon at Beltaine. He is also the God of animals, the forest and the hunt. Unfortunately, it was his image that was used to portray Satan as a way to frighten people away from the Celtic religion and convert to Christianity.
It can also represent our shadow side....the part of us we keep hidden....even from ourselves. The side we consider *not good enough* or even evil.
And yes, it also represents Satanism.
