Mano Cornuto (Horned Hand)

Hello Paranormal Seekers,
Mano Cornuto (Horned Hand)
By: Tamara Ortiz

Mano Cornuto, meaning horned hand in Italian. The horned hand is usually associated with the Wiccan traditions representing the Horned God or as the horns of the Moon Goddess. This symbol is used in the Occult as a charm or symbol to protect against the evil eye, similar to the hand of Hamsa (Arabic) and the hand of Hamesh (Hebrew). It is unclear in history if the Horned Hand symbol originated as an image of ‘horns’ or as a “poking out the evil eye” gesture. It is common belief in today’s day and age, although untrue that the Horned Hand is a representation of the devil or stands for some uncommon evil unseen force. This is so very untrue. It wasn’t until the late 70’s and early 80’s is when this symbol started to be utilized by heavy metal bands, furthermore associating the symbol with negativity and such things as the devil.

Even Salt can look like sugar, or sugar like salt but they taste completely different.

I bring up this analogy and this symbol today because the trends I have seen recently. When it comes to such things as the paranormal, please remember to do you due diligence in research, education and investigating.
