The symbolism of the ankh is that of all-encircling power and protection throughout the trials and tribulations of physical life. It is the link between the human and Divine and for many is a magical symbol signifying initiation
into such mysteries. On a mundane level the symbolism is similar to that of a cross. It represents the dreamer’s concept of the universe, or his religious beliefs. Formed as it is from the symbols of Egyptian deities Isis and Osiris – and, therefore, representing the generative principle – in a man’s dream the
ankh can suggest the power of resurrection, whereas in a woman’s dream it is more likely to suggest the power of life.
