The Phoenix is a mythological bird with unique regenerative powers. According to ancient folklore, the bird lived for 600 years before burning under the sun atop a funeral pyre. A new bird was then miraculously resurrected from its ashes to begin another lifecycle.

The Phoenix is a familiar and beloved bird to many. Often, we seek to transform ourselves or find renewal in life. When attempting these goals, having a symbolic figure to guide us along our journey can be greatly beneficial. In many cultures, the Phoenix plays this vital role. This is because according to ancient myths, the Phoenix burned in the sunlight and was re-born from its own ashes. This, combined with the sheer fire-like beauty of this magical bird, has made the Phoenix a symbol of life and transformation. It continues to influence people across cultures to this day.
