  3. Thank you for sharing. I have been looking for this a very long time. It is important to know human history in the form of language which are symbols. Human psych is metaphors & symbolism.

  4. Thanks for the comment. Alchemy is a great window on the study of metaphor+symbol, that's for sure.

  7. On the third picture down, the image properties box is half covering one of the symbols. Does it say carbon? because I'm looking for the symbol for carbon or something related.

    1. Pretty sure that one is the symbol for Cancer, as in the astrology sign.

    3. if you try to look behind it, it says the word "moht" which i'm not 100% sure on, but the cancer symbol looks like a 69 really.

    4. The one that's almost completely covered (not the 69 Cancer sign) would be the symbol for Capricorn - ♑. You can only see the very top of it, so it's a bit confusing. These are in the same order as what I have down in my book. Cheers.

  9. Is there any way you could share where you got these images from? There are a few that have info boxes covering the names, and I'd really like to know what they are. Thanks!

  12. thanks for you post, it was very helpful. I was wondering if you could tell me what a certain symbol means that I have been searching for a long time. It is 2 c's facing in opposite directions almost back to back with a small space between them and a single horizontal line through the center of each one. I would greatly appreciate it :)

    1. From the sounds of it it's one of the signs for 'tartar' (probably tartaric acid).
