Last updated by Susan Taylor

Dreaded by many, yet truly fascinating, the snake spirit animal symbolizes transmutation and rebirth. Its capacity for transformation allows it to regenerate itself and to experience energetic change. It confers the strength to accept our deaths and our successive births to reach wisdom. Learn more about the most mysterious of the spirit animals and discover the symbolism of the snake for Scorpio natives.

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.

What are the origins of the snake?

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).

What does 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.

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.

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.

EYE AM HEAVENLY UPRISEN HERETOFORE! I adore the San Diego Zoo & its yellow python - always wondered my animal crossover - BOA & PYTHON & OF COURSE YELLOW!

Few astrologers tell us that each sign has a power measure. The power of our overall horoscope, with all the planets in various signs, may make a sign other than your sun sign the dominant factor. For instance: I have Sun in Capricorn, Scorpio ascendant and two others in Scorpio. Scorpio outweighs Capricorn in power so I would be considered ruled by Scorpio and not Capricorn.
