The Ouroboros is an ancient alchemical symbol which, with the snake swallowing it's own tail and feeding on it's own body, represents the cyclical nature of life, of death, rebirth and regeneration.
 
This version is taken from the Chrysopoeia of Cleopatra, an alchemical text from the 10th century. In alchemy, chrysopoeia means "transumation into gold" which despite popular belief does not refer solely to the pursuit of turning physical lead into gold, but rather represents our personal, spiritual tranformation, from the Nigredo, or the blackness - our depression and suffering - to the Rubedo, or redness - enlightenment and bliss.
 
That's why for us the Ouroboros is such a powerful symbol, because it represents the death of our depression, and our rebirth into a new life.
