- The Caduceus, the staff of Hermes or Mercury has a great history with many symbolic Meanings.
- A.L. Frothingham incorporated Dr. Ward's research into his own work, published in 1916, in which he suggested that the prototype of Hermes was an "Oriental deity of Babylonian extraction" represented in his earliest form as a snake god. From this perspective, the caduceus was originally representative of Hermes himself, in his early form as the Underworld god Ningishzida . Hermes was a messenger of god and guide to the underworld. He is the god and protector of shepherds, travel, and literature, trade, wealth, luck, fertility, animal husbandry, sleep, language, and thieves
- One Greek myth of the caduceus is part of the story of Tiresias, who found two snakes copulating and killed the female with his staff. Tiresias was immediately turned into a woman, and so remained until he was able to repeat the act with the male snake seven years later. This staff later came into the possession of the god Hermes, along with its transformative powers.
- According to Roman legend, the symbol originated when Mercury once attempted to stop a fight between two snakes by throwing his rod at them, whereupon they twined themselves around the rod, and the symbol was born. That story then lent to the symbol being used later as a symbol of Peace.
- The Male and Female form represent the unity and balance of the masculine and feminine. Which is also represented in the Infernal Union. Samael and Lilith beget Baphomet. The Symbol of The Magician.
- The hands pointed upward and downward represent " As Above, So Below" Symbolic of Duality and the Union of Opposites.
- The Latin word "Solve et Coagula" written on the arm means "Dissolve and Coagulate". This means that you must "Break something down in order to rebuild it a new". Often used in Alchemy.
