  • “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.” ~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
  • “Like the moon I will fade away but like the sun I will rise again.”
  • “Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” ~ Carl Bard
  • “Just like I know the sun will rise again, I now your love is never ending… Your love brings me comfort when I am alone… Your love has taught me to be stronger that I ever thought I could be… Your love gives me hope for a beautiful future and together we can do anything.” ~Karen Kostyla

Scarab Beetle / Ra / Khepri – Meanings:
Scarab Beetles in Egypt were a symbol of Ra, and were used as good luck charms.

The Scarab personified the god, Khepri, a sun god associated with resurrection. As such, the large winged scarab and the heart scarab were considered good luck beetles and placed on mummies for protection against evil. The Egyptian name for the dung beetle was ‘hpri’ meaning “rising from, come into being itself, to change” became the divine name Khepri, given to the creation god, who represented the rising sun.

The winged scarab symbolized self-creation or rebirth, a symbol of spontaneous creation. In this role it was associated with the sunrise.

The Scarab Symbol was one of the most potent symbols of ancient Egypt primarily symbolizing the sun, resurrection, transformation and protection.

The heart scarab was placed in the tomb of the deceased in order to guide and protect them in the afterlife.

The flat underside of scarabs, used as amulets, were usually inscribed with names, magical spells, images of deities, sacred animals and other religious symbols.

There were many different types of scarabs including ornamental scarabs, heart scarabs, scarab seals, winged scarabs, marriage scarabs, scarabs with spells, scarabs with good wishes and scarabs decorated with figures of gods and animals.

As symbols of rebirth, stone scarabs were often placed in Egyptian tombs. Scarab amulets, or charms, might be sewn onto the wrappings of the dead, particularly over the heart. Inscribed on the heart scarab’s underside were writings from the Book of the Dead—a plea that the heart not betray it’s owner when he or she sought entry to the afterlife.

Living Egyptians wore small stone scarabs as good luck charms. These could simply be strung on a cord and worn around the neck, but jewelry featuring scarabs also included more elaborate necklaces, bracelets, and rings. Often an important name, message, prayer, motto, or design was inscribed on the scarab’s underside.
