Animal Medicine Monday – Snake

snake_1280
Snake is the totem animal within Sun Bear’s Earth astrology that corresponds with Scorpio.

Snake, especially the rattlesnake, is the teacher of the nagual enemies of fear and death, protector of all the teacher plants and the healing herbs, and holds the secrets of spiritual sexuality, of Quodoushka. Snake, along with the raven and crow, is a teacher of the Twenty Count, in that the sigils of the Twenty Count and the four Worlds are carried on its back. Along with communicating telepathically with other animals, snake is the protector of women’s lodges, and warns when you are out of alignment with the plant and mineral world. Snake is also the keeper of alignment with Grandfather Sun as it sheds its skin yearly.  And they are very adaptive to their environment.
