The Royal Spirit Animal
The horse is not just any figurine but has deeper connotations and symbolism. The dark grey or brown horse, in North Mythology, is an eight-legged horse owned by Odin god. The legends in Rig Veda consider the horse to be the chariot of the Sun God. It is believed the God of the Sun rode on a chariot of seven white horses - each horse representing the seven colors that emanate from the Sun. In another Vedic legend, the Ashva (horse) is a symbol of Prana (life energy) and indicates the control over one’s breath (Pranayama practice in Yoga), where seven horses represent seven Yogic chakras of a person’s life cycle. In Greek mythology, white horses were considered sacred animals in the Achaemenid court of King Xerxes the Great. In Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, the horse carries the world’s savior at the end of the world prophecies.
