Ouroboros, originating in the ancient Eqyptian hieroglyphs is a symbol of everlasting renewal. The symbol of a serpent (sometimes dragon) eating its tail represents the endless cycle of destruction and renewal. Even though the serpent is consuming its tail, it’s simultaneously feeding/nourishing itself and therefore is everlasting. The figure 8, the serpent is making in this piece further illustrates this ongoing cycle. This type of “everlasting” acknowledges that ‘the all is one’, and that small deaths or sheddings can actually be what replenishes the whole.
The symbol of Ouroboros has traveled through esoteric philosophies and practices and across multiple cultures! It plays a big part in alchemy and even has come into play in more recent years with psyche work, via psychiatrist like Carl Jung who take into account the power of dreams states and symbols to uncover the subconscious. This creation brings in the alchemical processes by incorporating the elements, earth, air, water, and fire. Embracing the elements to help us move through our fears IS embracing the power of snake medicine. The snake is a symbol of personal power that occurs through the willingness to go through the transformative fires of life and agreeing to be transformed by the experience of living rather than hanging on to the known.
