Symbols of Enchantment

As we continue our theme of the Enchanted Oasis, I thought it would be fun to explore symbols of enchantment, that we find in our lives and sometimes use in our writing.

The symbols we use and encounter in our daily lives, our stories and our mythology reflect so much about our longings.

For the next several days I’ll be sharing posts about several symbols — the green man, the minotaur, Chiron, mermaids, the phoenix, ghosts and genies of jin.  These are symbols that have been meaningful to me and continue to appear in many places in our culture and its stories.

What symbols of enchantment speak most deeply to you?

As we continue to explore our inner and outer enchanted oasis, these symbols can be pathways to discover the questions that pull your life forward.

  1. Hello Karen, I saw you at my blog and thought to come and see what you were blogging. I try to get around to my friends blogs. ;)
    Great minds think alike, or are on the same frequency spectrum. lol
    I am getting ready to go into a theme on Theosophy Nature Spirits and Fairies…..
    I have a great picture of The Green Man I was going to use in the future, so if you see it, in the future….not being a copycat.

    I am looking forward to your theme.
    Much love and thanks for your support.

    1. It looks my original reply didn’t quite format correctly, so please check out my comments below. Can’t wait to see your picture of the Green Man! :)

  2. Thanks for letting me know about your theme too – that sounds quite similar and wonderful. This should be fun to see each other’s views on this subject! :)
