I have decided to welcome 2012 with one of my favorite symbols - the Ouroboros or the dragon that eats his own tail. The Ouroborus is the ultimate symbol of renewal, creativity and endless change. The Ouroboros symbol has accompanied me for many years and represents for me the courage to accept life-changing decisions.
The Ouroboros often represents self-reflexivity or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself, the eternal return, and other processes perceived as cycles that begin anew as soon as they end. It can also represent the idea of unity. The Ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism but has also been frequently used in alchemical illustrations, where it symbolizes the circular nature of the alchemist's opus.
The Ring is meant to empower the wearer with the courage to accept life-changing decisions and to awakens creativity and renewal.
