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.
