The Ankh, or Cross of Life, is actually an Egyptian icon rather than a Wicca symbol. In hieroglyphics, the Ankh means “life”.
An Ankh is the union of the symbols for the Goddess and the God - the female oval and the male cross or staff. This symbolises the infinite creative power of the universe.
It “seems to have evolved from an ancient symbol of the Goddess in Libya and Phoenicia: a narrow triangle surmountd by a crossbar and a round or oval head.”
It is believed that in the fifth century, the Christians adapted the ankh again for their own use, leaving out the feminine aspect, and keeping only the masculine cross.
The ankh has been widely adopted in neopagan circles for its ancient mystical meaning of eternal life and the Divine Union of the Goddess and the God. Although not strictly a Wicca symbol it is worn by many witches.
