Replace the red numerals, 0 to 9, with a unique letter of the alphabet around the pentagram to form five 4-letter words which read in the direction of the arrows.
Allowing that letters have a positional value in the alphabet (1-26), the sum for each word value appears as a green two digit numeral on the diagram.
Each of the five words has some association with a different word in this phrase -
"Not the life of a sparkling female kid Paulette."
The words are common enough, but may not be mainstream in some gatherings.

The closest I can see a relation is that Saul of Tarsus became Saint Paul, and Paulette is a feminization of Paul.
Or maybe Paulette is supposed to refer to a younger Paul, rather than feminized Paul, and so would be Saul, as his earlier name.
Or it was just feminized to agree with "female kid" (girl goat).
