Four symbols are combined in this one intriguing talisman.
First, there is the spiral, a symbol of growth. The spiral is an ever-expanding circular pathway that "revisits" the same places over and over again, but not in quite the same way as the previous times. It is the idea of how growing makes you see the same people, places, or things in a new light.
Next, the goddess figure is a representation of the divine feminine, the part of each of us, whether we are male or female, that is nurturing, intuitive, creative, empathetic, and believes in community.
To either side of the goddess is a crescent moon. On the left side, the moon is waxing, when its lighted part is growing larger. It tells us that it's time to become more active in managing our lives and fulfilling our dreams. On the right side the moon is waning, when the lighted part gets smaller. This phase is a time of personal reflection and introspection. But the moon is also a feminine entity, and in that sense the waxing and waning relate to maidenhood, motherhood and finally menopause.
And lastly, the goddesses arms form a circle, which is the symbol of eternity.
