Snake is the totem animal
within Sun Bear’s Earth astrology that corresponds
with the Sun Astrology sun of Scorpio.
Just off the top of your head, what do you know about snakes?
Snakes, with their bellies so close to the ground, teach us how to align our heart beat and energies with Grandmother Earth’s, to be grounded, to gather knowledge with all of our senses, to slither gracefully and sensually (with our full body) through life, and to not worry about danger unless it is right in front of us.
Snake, especially the rattlesnake, is the teacher of the nagual (spiritual) 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.
Living snakes are found on every continent except Antarctica, and on most smaller land masses; exceptions include some large islands, such as Ireland, Iceland, Greenland, the Hawaiian archipelago, and the islands of New Zealand. Most species are nonvenomous and those that have venom use it primarily to kill and subdue prey rather than for self-defense.
