In ancient Egypt, it was the symbol of the solar cycle as well as the resurrection. He is the image of the sun reborn by itself, the cycle of day and night. Symbolizing the principle of eternal return, it was worn as an amulet. (CHGH)
In the Gothland region (Sweden) it bears the name of "Thorbagge" (insect of Thor) because it was dedicated to Thor. (CHGH)
The amethyst is a temperance stone. Its color is made of an equal proportion of red and blue. Balance between heaven and earth, sense and spirit, passion and intelligence.
Arcane XIIII of the tarot is named temperance. It represents an angel who holds in his hands two vases, one blue, the other red, between which a colorless fluid, vital water, is exchanged. The purple invisible on this representation is the result of this perpetual exchange between the chthonian red and the celestial blue. (Chthonian: relating to the infernal or telluric divinity that is to say underground in Greek mythology)
Beetle contributes to longevity and protects against serious incidents (DERR)
In Sweden, putting a scarab back on these legs causes 7 sins to expiate. (JONE)
