Caduceus Symbolism / Folk Lore
With Strong Ties to Paganism, the Caduceus is recognized internationally as the symbol of Medicine, and symbolizes Healing of the Body, Mind and Spirit!
Two elements are combined in the Caduceus:
1 - Carried by Mercury, the wing-footed messenger of the Gods (also Roman soldiers during flag of truce), the staff of peace was once borne by Roman military emissaries to signify a cessation of hostilities.
2 - Sesculapius, the Roman God of Medicine, is said to have appeared during a plague in Rome in the form of a snake. Snakes have through the millennium have represented eternal life & revelation of truth (shedding of the skin), and are often credited with being able to search out medicinal herbs.
