Ancient Symbols and their meanings

Welcome to We love the beauty, meanings, and significance of many of the world’s most ancient symbols. As you can see on our menus, we have a wide range of symbols categorized by subjects and a specific symbols library that extends the information of specific symbols.

From Ancient Egyptian symbols to Native American symbols to Greek Symbols and many more. Another example of an ancient symbol subject is Sacred Geometry, which is becoming more and more popular in our day and age. Sacred geometry is basically about geometrical shapes and patterns that hold the same geometry laws, which are the basis of the universe. These shapes and symbols were very popular in ancient times. All forms of life in Nature, such as plants, seashells, or snowflakes, have sacred geometry in their design and are good examples of sacred geometry in our everyday world.

Ancient Symbols and their meanings

Why are ancient symbols so important?

Like written language, symbols carry meaning that allows us to communicate with each other. But unlike language, many ancient symbols also contain something more. A deep meaning that lies in the base of our subconscious. Carl Jung called those symbols Archetypes archaic images or universal thought forms that influence the feelings and actions of an individual. He proposed that these images, patterns, or prototypes for ideas are derived from the universal or collective unconscious. According to Jung, the collective unconscious is an inherited psyche or reservoir of experience and is common to all members of a specific species.

Archetypes can be described as blueprints of our souls. These are primordial images or patterns of behavior that we are born with. The great Greek philosopher Plato is credited with originating the concept of Archetypes.

Another important note about symbols from ancient times is that they often carry more than one meaning. For example, a plus sign + can mean cross, such as in religion, or it can mean the four cardinal directions: north, south, east, and west.
