One of the most ancient human symbols. Appearing tens of thousands of years BC, it was the first symbol for direction, and became associated with the four winds.
To alchemists, the cross was a symbol of the ‘classical elements’: air, earth, fire, water. Elsewhere, the cross variously symbolized health, fertility, life, immortality, the union of heaven and earth, spirit and matter, the sun and the stars.
The adoption of the cross by the Christian church did not happen until the time of Constantine, three centuries after Jesus’ death.
With time giving way to prevailing religious associations, we’ve forgotten the ancient roots of the cross.
