Symmetrical Scales are those that divide the octave equally and/or use one interval completely to build the entire scale.

Examples of this are the Whole Tone Scale, which is built completely from whole-step intervals. Or, the Augmented Scale, which is build from combining two augmented triads a minor third interval apart.
