The pentagram has been used as a symbol in a vast array of contexts, so it means many different things to many people. In Christianity, for example, it has been used as a representation of the five wounds Jesus received during the crucifixion, as well as for the Star of Bethlehem. In many other religions, it has been used to represent elements (i.e., water, fire, air, earth, and spirit or ether). In the Middle Ages pentagrams were used as a symbol of the five knightly virtues: virtue, loyalty, and kindness. Pentagrams were also used to defend against witches, evil spirits, and demons.
For the most part, skulls represent some sort of positive aspect that comes from the negative. Because the human skull is the last part of the body to decay after death, it is known to represent consciousness, intellect, and our temporary stay in this physical world.
