Snake Sighting Spiritual Meaning & Symbolism

Snake Sighting Spiritual Meaning & Symbolism
Written by admin

Strong but misunderstood

Few nonhuman animals evoke emotions as strong as snakes. For millennia, world cultures and religions have developed elaborate symbolism, myths, and stories revolving around the snake. While it’s true that snakes generally don’t prey on humans, many people remain fearful and actively try to avoid snakes. However, when you encounter a snake, you may want to keep in mind the power of these creatures and understand that a message from Spirit may well be embodied in this legless reptile.

Shed the past to allow for growth

If you have sighted a snake, it is a sign of transformation in your spiritual growth. Prepare to awaken all your senses and allow your spiritual knowledge to expand. It is also time to shed old beliefs, habits, and in some cases possessions that are standing in the way of your progress.

Animals as symbols always come to us in times of change, but it is up to us to decipher the message each individual animal carries – the kind of change on the horizon or change that is already there. The significance of a snake sighting lies in the expansion of the mind and spirit. It’s a kind of transformation or awakening. However, it can be a reminder to stay grounded and in touch with the magic of nature – the earth, the water, the air and even the fire at the core of the earth. Respect the serpent, respect the earth and respect the bounty of all spiritual journeys.

Physical Characteristics and Spiritual Messages of the Snake

The meaning of an animal spirit is often tied to its physical attributes. When examining the significance of snake sightings, it’s a good idea to look at the snake itself with its abilities, flaws, and way of life.

Snakes are, of course, reptiles. They have no legs and have multiple means of locomotion, usually requiring the snake to adapt its body movements to the surfaces it chooses to move on. Snakes are also cold-blooded, meaning they must rely on outside sources to maintain their body heat.

When the snake grows out of its skin, it sheds it. The process of molting is a brief window of time during which the snake’s skin is exposed to external elements. The expansion of our spiritual body feels as comfortable and invigorating as a snake living in its new skin. The snake is aware of this. He relies on sight, smell, and even vibration to propel his way. As we expand our own consciousness, it’s important not to lose the fundamental skills we were born with as humans – including our sixth sense.

The snake hits opportunities with precision. When choosing a path to follow, it is important to choose exactly the path that is right for each of us. And when we have the opportunity to expand our consciousness or expand our path, we should do so with explicit intention. Our beliefs are strong and it is important to understand that there is a positive and a negative side to everything. Therefore, we should always focus on the positive while being aware of the negative – and show everyone a healthy respect.

Serpent or serpent as your spirit animal

If you feel that you identify with the snake or consider it your totem or power animal, chances are you have already experienced many changes and chapters in your life and are somehow adapting to those changes more easily than others. Like the snake, you are able to shed your skin and thus be reborn. It is also likely that you have some healing abilities with a special talent to balance opposing energies.

As a person, you possess a charm and confidence that people can find both attractive and comforting. As a healer, you will likely spend your life continually expanding and expanding your skills and your levels of consciousness.

What does a snake symbolize?

As we have already established, the snake is a powerful symbol in many different cultures. Curiously, this symbolism varies widely. Some lore posits a serpent as a teller of truth, a healer, or even a source of wisdom. In other cases, snakes portend deception, danger, and possible doom.

Symbolism of the snake in medicine

Two serpent symbols are the Staff of Hermes, also called the Caduceus, and the Staff of Asclepius (the Greek god of healing). Both appear in logos and symbols of medical and metaphysical healing arts. Some have even suggested that the snake symbolizes our own DNA.

Snakes in Tarot

In the Tarot, the Two of Chalices represents a couple exchanging golden chalices as if to suggest a marriage ceremony. Between them is the caduceus, a representation of balance, the union of energies and a healing connection.

Snakes and Chakras

You may have heard the term “awakening your kundalini” before. According to, “One of the goals of hatha yoga is to awaken the dormant kundalini energy (which is said to lie dormant like a serpent at the base of the spine) and lift it up through the chakras. As it goes higher and higher, different abilities are awakened, evolution is accelerated, and finally enlightenment is achieved as the kundalini moves up through the crown chakra.” Many say that this is also the path to ultimate orgasm.

The Celts

As a shamanic culture, the Celts worshiped the snake. One of the most interesting Celtic beliefs is that when the snake sheds its skin and its eyes glaze over, it has access to all knowledge of the universe – past, present and future.

Snakes in Native American culture

Native American cultures have very different beliefs about the snake. Some associate it with birth and fertility, some with thunder and rain, and others see it as a deadly serpent. In Cherokee legend, snakes are “supernaturals” that command fear, awe, and respect. This seems to be the general nature of the snake in most cultures, which makes sense since so many ancient cultures point to the snake’s ability to balance energies – both good and bad.

Significance of a snake sighting

Have you recently had a snake sighting? If so, have you felt an awakening within you or a need to connect with your spiritual side? When faced with decisions, do you weigh the good and the bad with equal respect? This is the meaning of a snake sighting and these are the questions to consider. A snake sighting is a sign of your spiritual growth and a reminder to keep your feet on the ground in the process.

snakes in dreams

If you dream of a snake or serpent, note: snake dreams are not always negative, but should be interpreted in context. What is the snake doing in your dream? Is it squirming and hissing, about to strike? This could indicate a hazard. On the other hand, when the Snake is peacefully going about its business, this may be a time for stealthy, quiet actions on your part. A snake shedding its skin may indicate that it’s time for you to make a change.

Some people wonder about the biblical meaning of snakes in dreams. Although the biblical symbolism of the serpent is often negative (think of the serpent that tempted Eve in the Garden of Eden), the serpent can also be a symbol of healing. When fiery serpents bit the ancient Israelites, they looked to a stake with a brass serpent for healing.
