It’s my turn to provide the Component of the Month for July, and I chose my scarabs! Scarabs have great meaning in Egyptian history.
“Symbolizing eternal life and rebirth, scarab beetles held great religious power and protective abilities. Kephri, the scarab-headed god, rolled the sun across the sky each day, where it died at night and was reborn in the morning. Scarabs also embodied the cycle of creation due to the ‘magical’ way the beetles produce offspring, which you can read more about below.
Scarab amulets would lend the sacred beetle’s power to the wearer. They offered a person magical protection against the dangers of this world, as well as those of the next.” (from Egypt.About.com)
To participate in the July COM:
Extra scarabs will be available for purchase after the draw – please contact me if you are interested.
Thanks and Good Luck!
