The Ouroboros, Greek for ‘tail swallower’ is depicted as a snake in circular motion swallowing it’s tail - on occasion, it can be seen in a lemniscate shape. It originated in Egypt to symbolize the sun; in terms of Gnostic beliefs, it is a referral to the solar god Abraxas, signifying infinity and the soul of the earth. To those of alchemy it represents the spirit of Mercury (a substance that pervades all matter) and continuous renewal, life and death and the balance of opposition.
