A symbol often used to represent the Red Tincture, or flowering of the Great Work.

Paracelsus (http://forum.alchemyforums.com/showthread.php?t=10):

The red tincture of the vitriol is so powerful that it reddens all white bodies, and whitens all red ones, which is wonderful. - source (http://www.sacred-texts.com/alc/paracel1.htm)

I think this symbol looks beautiful! The design obviously derives from the alchemical symbol for Earth (but with a dot). In this form I haven't seen it turn up much.

The blood symbolism can take another twist on these threads:

Indeed, this symbol got somthing to think about.

My focus is right now on the dot, which is placed in the upper part of the symbol.

A concentration, a door thru which the powers of the unseen world are able to enter
in the seen world.... a breakthru of sleeping powers.

Thanks for putting it in my viewsight ... Joy:)

That is interesting. I think I know the origin.
The square or rectangle with the dot is used to represent urine and
sometimes the salt of urine.
This salt is the same one in the blood - the ammoniacal salts.

The dot could represent that it is living, or its fiery principle,
as we see in sol/gold - circle with a dot in it.

It's interesting that the blood symbol is an earth instead of a water,
insinuating dried and coagulated blood (and extraction of the salt).
At first I just thought the line was to allow for the rectangle of urine, the salt of urine in the watery blood.

Well blood is one of those "neat" substances, you see because no matter the "type" of blood, it must come from an "earth" (physical) substance, i.e. animals, plants, or even the "blood" of the metals. Its liquid quality is really only water, thus a universal mercury mixed with it. Its "salt" (coagulated or otherwise) isnt really a "salt", but rather, the sulphur because of its fiery life-force qualities. (not all fires burn just as not all waters wet the hands ;) )

I like that symbol used, cause its the central life-force substance within the earth giving it life, or you could say the earth is the life's (dot's/doorway's) manifestation of itself. It is the fire of life within in the matter, the inner star, a most precious of materials.

Is there any work done with blood? I have read of work done in urine, which seems fairly simple- Eat right for a week, collect the urine, let it "ferment", and distill it, or something along those lines.

Since blood has sugars in it, can it be fermented into alcohol? What sort of things have been done with it alchemically, if any?

Seraph,

Yes actually. I personally have been working with Blood, rain and dew for a bout a month or 2 now. I cant say to much right off about the work (not done), but you can definitely make a powerful alchemical tincture and/or elixir from it.

also you can see some stuff, including one way to use blood: http://www.alchemywebsite.com/jfren_4.html

But as a warning (cause i caught several warnings also, and found out why), the work with blood can be dangerous for many unseen reasons, and its very nature is fiery and mysterious. Some Mysteries are better left in the dark, and remember not all fires burn, so if you do pursue animal alchemy of this nature, do be careful. :)

Besides the major alchemical animal work, blood can be used
to add a personal signature to your tinctures or whatever, which
is supposed to make them more powerful as well.

I haven't any experience with this. I think see the works of Bardon.
Or maybe Georg Lomer.
