Astrological Symbolic Meanings
There's no end to symbolism in astrology. Check this main page for your personality types according to many zodiac systems (includes Western, Asian, Native American, Celtic zodiacs and more!)

Nature Symbols
This section of symbolic meanings is one of my favorites. Go hiking through natural symbolism for enlightenment and inspiration. Section is divided by elements (fire, earth, air, water), with articles discussing profound symbolism found in each realm.

Celtic Symbols
There's no end to symbolic insight offered by the ancient Celts. This fiercely creative group of ancestors have rocked my world in meaningful ways; I hope these pages will kindle your own creative flames too!

Alchemy Symbolism
It's such an arcane system of symbolism, but packed with power and potential. This section seeks to clear up (a little bit) of the mystery of alchemy for the purpose of utilizing its imagery for personal benefit and understanding.

Basic Shapes and Colors for Symbolic Meanings
Sometimes the most profound meaning comes from the simplest sources. This section gets to symbolic basics: Circles, squares, colors, etc. A great foundational research for your symbolic exploration.

Dream Symbolism
Not a day passes when I'm not asked about the symbolic meaning of dreams. This section is devoted to that outcry for information.

Animal Symbolism and Totem Meanings
Hands down, the most sought out information on this website deals with connecting with animal totems, communications and animal meanings. I've spent years hanging out with animal kin, and this section (of 100+ entries) is the offspring of my observations and devotion to the animal kingdom.

Native American Symbolism
My own blood is spiced with Native American lineage, so it just made good sense to explore various tribal wisdom through symbolic eyes. This section is the result of a need for connection to Native Ways and Wisdom.

Number Meanings
Numbers represent a unique symbolic language that is worthy of further investigation. Check out this section for numerological insights, meanings and ideas. Includes auspicious dates, name-numerology, cultural ideas about numbers and your number-based personality traits.
