This is a rare handmade Talisman which combines the mystical symbol of the Ouroboros and the ancient Egyptian Phoenix. This Talisman is a powerful sacred artifact for those who seek to transform their lives and be reborn as a new, more authentic self.
The name 'Ouroboros' originates from the Greek language; 'oura' meaning "tail" and 'boros' meaning "eating", thus "he who eats his tail”. It symbolizes the eternal cycle of renewal and regeneration, Life out of Death and creation out of destruction.
This ancient symbol represents the dual nature of all things as well as the harmony between two opposites.
The handmade Ouroboros Talisman empowers you to constantly re-create yourself. With the added power of the Phoenix symbol, which operates in cycles that begin anew as soon as they end, this Talisman is a potent magical tool for finding your inner light, getting rid of the old and “shedding” your skin in a process of rejuvenation.
Both symbols, the Ouroboros and the Phoenix, represent the perpetual cyclical renewal of life and infinity, death and rebirth, signifying to immortality. This Talisman is crafted at a time when the celestial spheres support its energy signature. Pluto (death and rebirth) rising in Capricorn, a benefic strong moon in Taurus (exalted in the house of procreation) and Jupiter, the Great Benefic, in Virgo are jointly creating an Earth supporting triangle structure while the Sun is in Leo (its own house). Therefore, those who wear this Talisman will feel the 'safety net' of the cosmos and will be able to freely jump from the old shell onto the creation of a new and higher self.
“The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the Prima Materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the Prima Materia which […] unquestionably stems from man’s unconscious.” Carl Jung (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Jung)
