When we see an icon of St. George, we call to mind the way in which he saved the princess.
Let us examine the symbolism.
The white horse symbolizes our gross material body.
The Saint is the symbol of our self as a Self-aware Soul.
His spear represents the vibration of Mind-thought, intelligence and will-power.
The dragon is seductive desires and passions.
Water is etheric vitality, which is essential for creation but which is used up and evaporated by desire and anger.
And finally the princess is our present personality, who is saved by our Inner self – the Self-aware Soul.
