Symbolic Meaning of Seahorse:

The Ancient Greeks and Romans believed the seahorse was a symbol of strength and power.  The ancient Europeans believed that the seahorse carried the souls of deceased sailors to the underworld – giving them safe passage and protection until they met their soul’s destination.  Chinese cultures believed that the seahorse was a type of sea dragon, and as such they were revered for their power and thought to be symbols of good luck.

Symbolic meaning of starfish:

The starfish is thought to be a star that fell from the sky into the ocean.  It is also seen as a celestial symbol which symbolizes deep divine love.  Furthermore, the starfish symbolizes guidance, inspiration, brilliance, vigilance and intuition.
