The concept of the sacred marriage originated with the ancients, who typically enacted annual ceremonies to bring fertility and prosperity. The Greeks called it Hieros Gamos. Many mythologies describe it as a marriage between heaven and earth. In ancient Egypt, the marriage between Isis and Osiris was considered sacred union of heaven and earth, of yin and yang, of the feminine and the masculine principles.

The Ankh, also known as key of life, the key of the Nile or crux ansata (Latin meaning "cross with a handle"), was the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic character that read "life", a triliteral sign for the consonants -n- . It represents the concept of eternal life, which is the general meaning of the symbol. The Egyptian gods are often portrayed carrying it by its loop, or bearing one in each hand, arms crossed over their chest.

Andre tal; 10, 22, 24, 28: Et andet væsentligt tal i den egyptiske gudeverden er titallet. Det er tidsmæssige og rummæssige symboler.

Ti og tolv skaber tallet toogtyve − et tal, der spiller en vigtig rolle i den kosmologiske struktur i det gamle Egypten.
