The Phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird that can be found in the mythologies of the Egyptians, Native Americans, Greeks, Arabians, Persians, Romans, Chinese, Hindu, and more.
In ancient Egyptian mythology and in myths that originated from it, the mythical Phoenix is a sacred female firebird with beautiful red and gold feathers, the color of the rising Sun. Said to live for over 500 years, at the end of its life-cycle the Phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs before it bursts into flames; both the nest and the Phoenix burn fiercely and are subsequently reduced to ashes from which a new baby Phoenix arises.
Originally, the Phoenix was identified by the Egyptians as a heron-like bird called a Bennu,known from the Book of the Dead.In other Egyptian texts the Phoenix is one of the sacred symbols of worship at Heliopolis, it was often associated with the rising sun and the Egyptian sun-god Ra.
Modern additions to the myth in popular culture say the tears of the Phoenix have great healing powers, and if the Phoenix is nearby one cannot tell a lie.
The embodiment of life, death and rebirth, the Phoenix represents the idea that the end is only the beginning. The Phoenix symbolizes renewal and resurrection, death and new life, overcoming darkness and rising more powerful than before.
Being a Scorpio I closely relate with the symbolism and magical energy of the Phoenix. Scorpio signs often reinvent themselves through growth and change constantly. Life for us is a continuous cycle of death and rebirth. Possessing the gift of healing only adds to the correlation which is how I decided on the name The Regal Phoenix for my crystal shop!
