Original Message "It has been used to symbolize the time continuum. It has also been used to symbolize the eternal life and the following incarnations. Breaking the Circle of Ouroborus / Uroborus is the breaking the Circle of incarnations and the entering to the blessed Nirvana. Ouroborus was also been used in a way like the Taoist symbol Yin-Yang. Like the head and the tail are separated yet one, as its all things. Some times Uroborus is not just a snake but a dragon which probably symbolizes more the Yin-Yang meaning than the eternal time. It seems that Uroborus was used to define more earthly things that are subject to time continuum (like our earthly Incarnations). It symbolizes the Saturnian energies and some Tarot Decks correspond the Ouroborus with the Hermit, the 9th Triumph of the Major Arcana."
