Protective amulets - past and present
Protective signs still have great symbolic value today. Since time immemorial, magic characters - such as runes - and a wide variety of animals have played an important role in protective magic. A large part of the archaeological finds are so-called protective amulets. They prove the value of protective runes and magical animals, especially among the Nordic tribes and the Germanic tribes.
Due to the migration of peoples, the runic writing spread from northern Central Europe to the southeast and south from the 7th to the 8th century. With the spread of Christianity and Latin script, it gradually disappeared.
The snake - power animal full of magic
A large number of attributes can be assigned to the snake. However, it is above all an animal being, which is associated with the infinite cycle of life and of death. A snake skins itself again and again. This quality of self-renewal and transformation symbolizes rebirth.
In ancient Greece, the snake was considered immortal and sacred. Healing powers were attributed to the snake, not least because medicine was made from its flesh and poison. It became the symbol of medicine. The staff of Aesculapius is still a sign of the medical profession today and can be found, greatly simplified, in the pharmacy sign.
