The Eye Ring
In ancient Egypt, the Eye of Horus was worn as an amulet for protection and for good health and healing.
Horus is a sky god whose eyes are said to be the sun and the moon. An ancient myth describes a battle between Horus and Set in which Horus' right eye was torn out. Thoth, who associates with the moon, magically restored Horus' eye, at which point it was given the name "Wadjet" meaning "whole" or "healthy." While the right eye of Horus traditionally represents the "Eye of Ra" the god of sun, in this myth, it specifically states that it is Horus' left eye which has been torn out; the left eye that has been restored by Thoth, the eye that represents the moon. So the myth relates to the waxing and waning of the moon during which the moon appears to have been torn out of the sky before being restored once every lunar cycle.
In this way, The Eye Ring, paying homage to Wadjet, represents a return from chaos, a balance, a healing energy. Couldn't we all use a little bit of that in our lives?
