Living in rural Texas, I know snakes. Most of them are harmless, but the warm weather always brings with it the threat of rattlesnakes and cottonmouths. A coiled snake could just be resting – or it could be ready to strike. But snakes are a vital part of the ecosystem and have been used as totems for thousands of years.

Snake represents:

  • Elusiveness
  • Transmutation
  • Creative Power
  • Immortality
  • Fertility
  • Balance
  • Patience
  • Cunning
  • Rebirth
  • Wisdom
  • Fluidity
  • Transformation
