Why Seahorse?

Seahorse symbolism

The image of the seahorse represents the balance of both feminine and masculine energies which we hold within ourselves. In terms of depth psychology we term these two drives as anima and animus, these are the unconscious masculine and feminine within us all. Within a woman is the animus (masculine within the female) and anima (feminine within the male).

The ancient Greeks called the seahorse the hippocampus, the hippocampus is part of the limbic system and is involved in our emotional processing and regulating stress.
