Fancy yourself some cool symbols to satisfy an intellectual or mystical itch? Well, I hope you’re ready for what’s ahead. There are so many symbols out there that tickle our subconscious and reveal what and how our ancestors perceived the world and life’s merciless circumstances.
1. The Aesclepius Wand
Don’t confuse this for the Caduceus because they’re quite different symbols associated with different Greek Gods, but they do have similar properties. This is considered the true symbol of medical practice. The wand itself is connected to the old method of trying to extract parasites by letting them wind around a stick then pulling them out of the body. The snake doesn’t symbolize a parasite, in this case, however. The serpent signifies healing and transformation from a mental and spiritual perspective. Aesclepius or Asclepius is the Greek god of healing and prophecy.Exclusive Deal – GameFly BOGO Offer. Get GameFly for 2 months for $20!
