Who Is Scorpio's Spirit Animal? - It's The Snake; Symbol Of Rebirth

In Native American astrology, totem animals are defined by observing nature. The snake spirit animal is venerated as a powerful totem and source of life. Thanks to its ability to mutate, it represents the life force and primal energy. The animal symbol of the Serpent is the eighth spirit totem on the wheel of life used by Amerindian shamans. It corresponds to the middle of autumn and to our western astrological sign of Scorpio, to which it can bring a new and exotic perspective.

What are the origins of the snake spirit animal?

Scorpio's spirit animal; the snake is the 8th animal of the Native American wheel, which corresponds to the sign of ScorpioThe links between these two signs are numerous. The snake is a strong sexual symbol that evokes passion. In balance between two worlds, it is at the same time shadow and light, representing life and death. Its creative force is as powerful as its destructive force. (As a reminder, we can refer to the Bible, and more particularly the story of Adam and Eve). The snake represents the balance between opposite poles: death and regeneration, good and evil, light and shadow, creation and destruction. It is endowed with great instinct and sensitivity. Likewise, it helps to move forward while remaining grounded.

What does Scorpio's spirit animal; the snake, symbolize? - Change and healing

Among the Amerindians, the snake fascinates people by its capacity to renew itself by its regular shedding. It changes its skin to survive, which gives it an incredible healing power and refers to the different mutations of man. For this creature, death should only lead to a transformation, which in this case is rebirth.

The snake is an extremely powerful symbol. In some cultures, it is considered a source of life.  In this case, the snake means that there will be a change in your life. Its ability to shed its skin is a source of rebirth and new beginnings. Whether physical, spiritual or even emotional, the snake as a totem animal can provide you with clues to a transition, a healing, a call to listen. In short, all the possible changes there may be in your life.

It is also important to know that the snake totem animal represents the clash between good and evil. People who have the snake as their guide are often impulsive and very dynamic people. This is why any decision must be carefully thought out. Any unforeseen event can be fun as well as a real catastrophe.

You are cunning by nature and very protective of your family and friends. Like the snake, you are able to adapt to any situation. The snake is close to the earth, so it is also close to its energy. As a reptile, its instincts are primal. When it appears to you, pay close attention to the energies that flow through you. The snake spirit animal has a great connection with the sign of the Scorpio.

The snake is the very symbol of mutation and regeneration: always different, always the same, it regularly needs to change skin to continue its life, and this alone is a perfect analogy with the 8th house (itself linked to Scorpio), which speaks to us of great personal transformations and existential crises. The Snake, present throughout the world in many different forms, populating both land and water, has always fascinated mankind. For the serpent has the power to captivate man (or woman) with its disquieting charisma, its impenetrable, mysterious gaze, and its sense of not quite belonging to our world.

What are the powers of the snake?

As a reptile in carnal link with the earth, the serpent confers a primary instinct and a sensitivity out of the ordinary. It brings the earth and nature closer together. If the snake is your totem animal, you probably have great healing abilities for yourself and others. Just think of the symbols of doctors or pharmacists who wear snakes.


Able to reinvent yourself to survive the dramas of life, you are constantly balancing between two worlds.

What does it mean if you dream of snakes?

If you see a snake in your dreams, don't be afraid. It heralds a period of transition and personal development. It is an invitation to take a closer look at the changes taking place in your life. Furthermore, it invites you to seize new opportunities, while reminding you to keep your foundations intact, for the bond with the earth is strong and this acts as an invitation to keep your feet on the ground. A snake also appears when you need support. It helps you to move forward when you need to enter an environment that is unknown to you.

Article presented by Susan Taylor

Editor in Chief and Astrologist for MyAstroMag - I’ve always been completely fascinated by the world of Astrology and horoscopes. Writing for you and forecasting my exclusive predictions are my main passions.

What an amazing article. A video on youtube about communicating with animals and that knowing your Spirit animal led me here ( mindandmagick). I am a Scorpio. About 4 or 5 years ago I had a VERY vivid and clear dream, it was more like a real event than a dream in fact. It was short but powerful. Outside my back yard I watched a Snake shed it's skin, the Snake was standing upright, not crawling at all, more like when you see a Cobra. I have always had an irrational fear/terror of Snakes since I was very young, but in the dream I was not afraid in the slightest, and funnily enough, since that dream, my fear of snakes in real life has gone too. I instinctively knew that the shedding of it's skin meant a new transition in life for me, but your wonderful article Susan just confirmed this and clarified a whole lot more. I have changed and developed so much since that dream it is beyond amazing. I do feel like a different version of me that I was before. Thanks again.
