Symbolic Snake Totem

Universal symbol of rebirth and renewal due to the shedding of its skin, the Snake is a hugely
powerful sign of fertility in its many forms.

Agile, sleek and lightweight, Snakes encourage us to reach our maximum potential through the simplest most economical means.

Often feared due to misunderstanding, the Snake totem reminds us we must be our own source of encouragement even if the outside world may shun us.

Snake Totems Facilitate:

  • Slough off extraneous fluff in our lives. Get back to basics, live sleekly,
    effectively, with maximum effectiveness.
  • Acceptance of dormant times in our life with the expectance of re-growth.
  • Focus of fertility – be it concerning areas of wealth, health, or spiritual rebirth.
  • Self-acceptance, self-reliance, and innate understanding that we are all beautiful,
    and powerful regardless of what the outside world may try to indicate.

    For me, snakes evoke thoughts of venomous and non-venomous reptiles, as well as thoughts of the auger, also known as a snake, used by plumbers to dislodge objects in curved pipes. The connection between these snakes becomes increasingly noticable when I relay a few stories: friends of mine in Panema and Australia have encountered poisonous snakes wrapped around the underside of their toilet bowls. This often ahppens during dry seasons when snakes venture out for water. In one case, I heard about a snake inside a toilet bowl. The image os someone sitting down on the seat evokes uneasy feeligns there:)
