This image of a double-sided axe was found on the side of a Minoan vase, dated from 1,600 BCE. It was a symbol of the ancient, mythical Amazon tribes of Asia, North Africa, Anatolia, and the Black Sea area. They were the priestesses of Artemis.
The Labrys is a symbol of regeneration and the powers of life unfolding.
When you draw out the Labrys it is a signal that you are ready to embrace the power of the priestess within you. You are more aware of your psychic powers and have found yourself in a position of leadership to others. You understand the need for balance in a world that is constantly evolving and changing. As well, you understand the need for change and evolution as that which cannot or does not change must stagnate and die.
This may mean you will face a time of radical truth-telling. You may need to confront situations, personal or political, using words, thoughts and creative expressions that may be considered a bit unorthodox to others. Face it bravely, with the Labrys in your hand.
