The ankh or key of life is an ancient Egyptian symbol that was most commonly used in writing and in Egyptian art to represent the word for ‘life’ and, by extension, as a symbol of life itself.
The Cross of the Ankh is said to be a duplicate of an equally known occult symbol, the cross of Tau with a circle added to the top of the horizontal bar, and it is one of the oldest sacred signs with a deep symbolic value.
The traditional interpretation of the symbolism of the Cross of the Ankh is life and rebirth. Thus, according to this, the upper part of the Cross of the Ankh (circle) symbolizes the Nile River delta and the rest is the river itself which feeds life for the dry region of Egypt. So this is the reason why the cross of the Ankh literally embodies the ‘key of life’.
Literally, the term ‘ankh’ in translation from Egyptian means ‘life’ or ‘who lives’.
In the Ankh two characteristics are combined: a cross which is a symbol of life, and a circle which symbolizes the eternity, the essence of the human spirit and the genesis. As a result, we get a deep symbol representing the immortal, the man who is able to resurrect himself in eternity. The combination of a circle and a cross is also a sign of a spiritual and material combination, a symbol of initiation and second birth.
Many esoteric interpretations argue that the Ankh key also symbolically denotes a harmonious combination of male and female nature, embodies the gods of Osiris (he) and Isis (she). So the Ankh itself is nothing other than the sexual coitus of the two creative forces of creation, whose harmonious combination gives birth to life. Thus, the Ankh Key is a graphic symbol of an ever-changing life through an infinitely dynamic balance between female and male energies, between passivity and activity, between Yin and Yang, the Earth and the sky.
