Over time I've noticed that different people refer to our symbol either as a Pentagram or a Pentacle. Which word do you and why?

To me, they are two separate names. A pentacle is a five pointed star, while a pentagram is the star enclosed within a circle. When I was a Wiccan I wore a pentagram, which are the five directions, the five senses, the five elements all as one.

As SisterHoney said, they are actually 2 different things.
