The ancient myth and lore of the Unicorn speaks of innocence, purity, grace and mystical healing powers. To touch or to be touched by the horn of the Unicorn can bring total and complete healing. These one horned legends were always a symbol of supreme power, connected with gods and kings.
The Unicorn is a master of transformation and can appear in a symbolic representation of any other creature, or even humans for the purpose of teaching us the breaking of limitations.
They are the connection between the visible and the invisible world, as they can easily switch between both.
The unicorn’s most vital function has been as a symbol of power and virility, as well as purity. It is a combination of opposites – the male horn and the female body. This may be its most important role, symbolizing the soul as the spark of divine light in the darkness of matter and evil.
‘Well, now we have seen each other,’ said the unicorn, ‘if you’ll believe in me, I’ll believe in you. Is that a bargain?’
