The Meaning of Ancient Egyptian-staff / Ankh in Occultism

The ancient Egyptian staff/Ankh symbolizes the following:

  • Reproduction, sexual union, life and zest for life or future life, life after death.
  • This hieroglyph is sometimes called the key of the Nile. The symbol is associated with Imkotep (living around 3000 B.C.E.), physician for the pharaoh’s family. Long after his death Imkotep was made the god of medicine or healing in Egypt.(source: Dictionary of symbols, published 1991)
