Way down deep where the strangest creatures dwell, lives a diminutive seahorse, one of the ocean’s jewels. The seahorse is quite a unique creature that has a mystical significance among the Ancient Greeks, European and Asians. A relatively calm and mild-mannered sea creature, the seahorse is seemingly content to roam the seas. Their bodies are geared for ambling-type motion – not for speed. Thus, they are symbolic of patience and contentment – they are happy with being where they are and are in no hurry for advancement. Many cultures, including the Celts, associated the seahorse with the sea gods, giving it the meaning of strength and power. They believed it can change its shape at will. For the Celts, the meaning of the seahorse included all the mystical qualities of water, connecting it to the imagination and creativity. This connection to the water led the Celts to view the seahorse as a good luck charm at sea. It is depicted to bring both courage and a safe voyage.
