The Caduceus is one of few magical symbols still found in modern institutions today. This unique symbol is sacred to the god Hermes (Roman-Mercury) and has been used by healers for thousands of years.
Incorporated into its design is the "winged serpent," a motif found in many ancient civilizations, most notably, the Egyptian, Mayan, and Greek. This serpent can be seen as the "kundalini energy" spiraling up the spine, empowering the seven chakras, up to the crown chakra where cosmic consciousness blossoms and takes flight, represented by the eagle's wings. This metaphor expresses the ancient wisdom that true healing only takes place when we conquer our unevolved or unloved aspects through spiritual progression.
The central axis of the Caduceus represents the male/female energy combined. The orbs are the root and crown chakras. The two snakes are traditionally colored silver and gold—the left represents the female; receptive, lunar— the right represents the male; active, solar. This pendant brings deep healing, and revelation surrounding the root cause of dis-ease. Ease is the cure to dis-ease, and the Caduceus invokes good health, strength, and healing power to overcome illnesses, be they of the mind, body, or soul.
