Here's a print I did last night. I'm quite pleased with most of it, but I did make one glaring error I really shouldn't have.

Pentagram 1 on parchment

[Edit: explanation here.]

Oh dear!

Symmetry is over rated.

I think it's more that some pagans get really really *intense* about the clockwise/anti-clockwise thing... ;-)

That makes more sense. My eyes are not working today - I'm sure when I looked at it one of the overs was an under, but it clearly isn't. Maybe I just predicted what the error would be if I'd done it and hallucinated it to match!

Funny; my first thought was "I wonder if he really wanted it to look that way or did he want the mirror-image"?

Something about the direction of the pentacle was what tipped it off for me.

Hm, that's interesting - the pentacle looks right to me, but the anticlockwise progression is of course All Wrong. Maybe I can palm it off on a southern-hemisphere pagan, or something. Otherwise I'll have to destroy the prints.

As someone who's never heard about this, tell me more? I spent ages trying to work out what was wrong with it.

Do post the edited deosil version here on your main journal at some point though, darling? It deserves to be seen. :-)
