The Egyptian Phoenix is also know to the Romans in mythology. The Phoenix symbolizes a new beginning or a re-birth of the old into the new.
The mythical being has a life cycle of 500 years, near the end of it’s 500 years, the Phoenix builds itself a nest. The nest which the Phoenix built will ignite in flames and the Phoenix will burn with it. The flames will turn to ashes and from those ashes a new Phoenix is born.
The new beginning will be made for the Phoenix to live another 500 years.
With the old, comes the new.
With death, comes a re-birth.
“Where there’s life, there’s hope.” -Terence (c. 190-158 B.C.)
Unlike the Phoenix humans do not have a set life cycle and neither do werewolves. But how long will it be until you make your “new beginning,” tossing out the old and starting the new. The phoenix burns as a symbol, your symbols are old bad habits of life, the things that do not make life richer and fuller. Toss them and start your new beginning.
