Ouroboros and the Phoenix
The Ouroboros or Uroborus is an ancient symbol depicting the Jörmungandr. A serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The name originates from within Greek language; (oura) meaning "tail" and (boros) meaning "eating", thus "he who eats the tail". In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr is a sea serpent which was tossed into the ocean and grew so large that he was able to surround the earth and grasp his own tail and as a result, he received the name of the World Serpent.
The Ouroboros symbol appears in both 14th-15th century Albigensian printing watermarks and is also worked into the pip cards of many early 14th-15th century playing cards, including Tarot cards. The symbol used as the ace of cups in early decks were frequently circled with an ouroboros. The Ouroboros is associate with secret societies.
The Albigenses were closely associated with the humanist movement of the inquisition. They came from Armenia, where Zoroastrianism and Mithra worship were common and their iconography likely came through the Zoroastrian Faravahar symbol, which in some versions clearly features an ouroboros at the waist instead of a vague disc-shape.
In Mithran mystery cults the figure of Mithra being reborn is sometimes seen wrapped with an ouroboros. References which do not mention the ouroboros refer to this circular shape as symbolizing the immortality of the soul or the cyclic nature of Karma, suggesting that the circle retains its meaning even when the details of the image are obscured.
Ouroboros with the snake looped once before eating its own tail
and the double loop snake eating its own tail are common today in art and literature. Showing itself primarily in ancient Gnostic texts, the Ouroboros is any image of a snake, worm, serpent, or dragon biting its own tail. Generally taking on a circular form, the symbol is representative of many broad concepts.
Time, life continuity, completion, the repetition of history, the self-sufficiency of nature, and the rebirth of the Earth can all be seen within the circular boundaries of the Ouroboros. Societies from throughout history have shaped the Ouroboros to fit their own beliefs and purposes. The image has been seen in ancient Egypt, Japan, India, utilized in Greek alchemic texts, European woodcuts, Native American Indian tribes, and by the Aztecs.
It has, at times, been directly associated to such varying symbols as the Roman god Janus, the Chinese Ying Yang, and the Biblical serpent in the Garden of Eden. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism, but has also been used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of the alchemist's opus.
It is also associated with Gnosticism, and Hermeticism
The Ouroboros represents renewal of life and infinity, eternity and the eternal return as in the Mythical Phoenix bird. The Phoenix has a life-cycle, which builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix arises. The Dragon or Serpent, of course is a reference to Lucifer.
The United States of America, from its inception has had a special place in the occultic societies of secrets. America is the Phoenix bird as well as the New Atlantis through which the New World Order system will bring in their New Age of Aquarius and their new Adam, the antichrist.
