Symbol Code: SM001010     Symbol Name: Halloween Spiders   (Category: MANKIND )

Halloween Spiders(CONTEMPLATION OF SELF): Much like the bat, cat, and the owl - spiders (as Halloween symbols and otherwise) are creatures considered to be endowed with supernatural qualities which make them harbingers of mystic energy. Witches often invite the spider into their homes and practices as a method of enhancing understanding of energetic patterns. Why are they so mystical? Predominantly because of their ability to weave webs, which has long been symbolic of time, fate, progress and the representation of the human journey (on both physical and philosophical levels). Also, the spider boasts eight legs, and the number eight is symbolic of cycles which would make the spider's presence during this time of year (symbolic of the transition between summer to winter) quite fitting.


Symbol Code: SM001011     Symbol Name: Halloween Black Cats   (Category: MANKIND )

Halloween Black Cats(CONTEMPLATION OF SELF): Mysterious, precocious, sleuthy, and seemingly able to stalk the darkest nights without aid of light - the cat has long been considered to be closely linked with otherworldly concepts. Indeed, many practitioners of energetic communication welcomed the company of felines as it was understood these creatures could serve as a facilitator to opening otherworldy doors. Black is a common color of mystery and the unknown. Black is also considered to be an absorbing element - taking on off-kilter energies and transforming them into purer frequencies. When we view the meaning of Halloween symbols based on the understanding it is a time of transitions - the black cat becomes a suitable totem for the celebration. The black cat augers our connection with the intangible, and serves as a bridge from the mundane to the magical.


Symbol Code: SM001032     Symbol Name: Waterfall   (Category: MANKIND )

Waterfall(GOOD AND PLEASANT): Water is a symbol of emotion and the subconscious. Therefore, waterfalls deal with the constant running and flowing movement of our emotions and the stirring movements of our deeper minds. Observing the nature of waterfalls, we see they typically move at such a rushing speed that they tend to take everything with them in their path - rocks, trees, any debris in the midst of a waterfall is subject to its pull. This is symbolic that we must not let our emotions run away from us. Further, the waterfall leads to a plummeting drop and a crashing end against jagged rocks. This is a lesson that when we are not in control of our emotions and thoughts then they control us - potentially leading us down a rocky demise.


Symbol Code: SM001063     Symbol Name: Symbolic Pelican   (Category: MANKIND )

Symbolic Pelican(SACRIFICE AND RITUALS): The elegant pelican soars into our awareness with heavy messages of sacrifice, resurrection and nourishment. A common pelican-fable observed the pelican piercing her breast with her beak , causing blood to flow. The fable describes a noble, self-sacrifice of the pelican to provide for her babies by feeding them the blood of her own body. These observations that worked themselves into folklore, and so, the pelican (even to this day) is a symbol of self-sacrifice. So much so, the pelican is likened to Christ's sacrifice and self-offering in Christian traditions. In reality, the pelican is regurgitating food for her offspring, and in doing so, blood from macerated fish is spotting her snowy white breast.


Symbol Code: SM001105     Symbol Name: Feoh   (Category: MANKIND )

Feoh(INTELLIGENCE): To round off this page on good luck symbols, I explored the Futhark, a specialized divinatory alphabet from ancient Nordic people (Anglo-Saxons, Germans, Scandinavians). The Feoh is a symbol for cattle. Don't have a cow, man (sorry, I couldn't resist the bad pun and the opportunity to link to my cow page). I'm including it in the good luck symbols for business because cattle was just like money to the ancient Nordic people (albeit, not as easy to carry in pockets). In fact, the measure of a man's wealth was based on how many head of cattle he owned. The value of cattle was even higher than land ownership.
Further, the Feoh is the first letter of the Germanic alphabet, which underscores its symbolic importance. This symbol represents wealth gained by honest means, and hard work. This may not appeal to some of you. But, those who are building a business from the ground up with pride, integrity and a passion for what you're doing - the Feoh may rumble a throaty "hurah!" in your veins. The Nordic people believed in gain by the sweat of the brow. If you're that kind of business person, consider the mark of the Feoh as a point of focus for your business intent.


Symbol Code: SM001106     Symbol Name: Jade Plant   (Category: MANKIND )

Jade Plant(INTELLIGENCE): Every Chinese restaurant I've ever attended has had a jade plant in it. That's because it's one among many Chinese good luck symbols. The jade plant is actually a symbolic mimicry of the actual jade stone. Jade is considered highly valuable, and therefore very lucky - a material representing great wealth, auspiciousness and fortune and status.
Feng Shui practices encourage placing jade plants near entrances to your business or in southeast location of your home or business in order to activate financial energies. Jade plants, like the stone, are green and (just like the bloodstone) this color carries symbolism of growth, renewal, spring time sprouting in the form of wealth in our lives. Money may not grow on trees, but a gemmy jade plant might spark your mind to more lucrative thinking patterns. If nothing else, having a jade plant around will certainly boost your mental functions as the oxygen the plant puts out is great brain food.


Symbol Code: SM001107     Symbol Name: Malachite   (Category: MANKIND )

Malachite(INTELLIGENCE): For many of the same reasons jade and bloodstone are good luck symbols, malachite is said to be an auspicious stone for business people too. I have a smooth oval of malachite on my altar, because it appeals to my crow mind. I just love the two-tone swirly viridian whirlpools in the stone - they draw me in. I am not, however, a millionaire. Nevertheless, business people of all eras have placed malachite stones in the corners of their business establishments with the idea the powers of the stone will magnetize a long line of customers to their door. As with other good luck stones, you can keep a piece of it in your pocket, purse or wallet for the same intent of gaining wealth/customers, etc.


Symbol Code: SM001108     Symbol Name: Staff of Ptah   (Category: MANKIND )

Staff of Ptah(INTELLIGENCE): Ptah is also a patron of craftsmen, sculptors and so his staff may appeal to people who are working on the foundation or construct of their business. The staff of Ptah serves as a focal point to enhance creativity and ingenuity in matters of vocation. Further, Ptah encourages dexterity and resourcefulness in creating substance. As the architect of the universe, Ptah's staff is a symbol reminding us of our ability to coax material from the immaterial.
