Double Spiral Symbol Meaning
In some cultures, the double spiral is a symbol of eternal life. The symbol spirals out infinitely, thus reinforcing the concept of life, death, and rebirth. The whorls represent the continuous creation and destruction of the universe, or the relationship of the finite to the infinite; the never ending spiral of life to death, and back again. The double spiral is related to the yin-yang symbol, which depicts the balance and the interwoven nature of the worldly realm and the spiritual realm.
A double spiral labyrinth can also be a symbol of initiation and the ritual journey through a labyrinth to the sacred realms beyond the center. Additionally, the center can represent complete balance, and/or the place where Heaven and Earth merge.
In protobulgarian mythology the double spiral is a solar symbol.
