DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Snake spirit | Be prepared for transformation.
Has Snake slithered into your world today? If so, you are being asked to undergo a major transformation. Are you willing to shed your old skin? Are you willing to let go of people, places, and things that no longer have a place in your life? The snake will help you make the grand transformation, then slide into a new life that’s brimming with possibility.
In Native American culture and various other religions, snakes are symbolized as the energy of Earth. Snakes are mostly found in direct contact with the Earth. Snake spirit represents a person’s humility and grounded nature. Snakes also represent healing. Snake venom has been used in traditional Asian medicine for thousands of years. It can bring healing to any long-term mental or physical pain. The snake also represents the primal source of life energy. This energy is inside every human being and is considered to be in a ‘sleeping state’ until one chooses the path of enlightenment. This aspect has been discussed more in detail below.
Snakes are classified as reptiles that are cold-blooded and crawl their way forward smoothly. Snakes are perceived as dangerous animals, however, not all of them are harmful and life-threatening. If the snake is the animal spirit for you, be aware of the energies that you possess.
The most important personality traits of snake spirit animals are –
Primal Energy: Ancient yogic scriptures define ‘Kundalini’ energy as the primal energy which is situated at the base of the spine. It is the life force that is considered to be dormant. The Sanskrit term ‘Kundalini’ means ‘Coiled snake’. In simple terms, there’s life energy inside all of us that is in deep sleep. It is awakened through years of spiritual practice, yoga, tantra, or chakra healing meditation. Once the kundalini energy is awakened, it leads to enlightenment, and the person experiences the ultimate bliss. The Indian yogic scriptures refer to this state as the ultimate freedom from the cycle of birth and death.
Rebirth: Snakes shed their old skin adapting to the new layer of skin that grows underneath the old one. This is known as the symbol of transformation, renewal, and rebirth. Snake spirit gives the vision and energy to transform your life in a whole new way. It prepares you for the transition and growth ahead in your life. It helps you to shed the old thoughts, beliefs, fears, and doubts and inspires you to adapt to new powerful beliefs, habits and infuses you with confidence.
Healing: From the earliest times of civilization, snakes have been seen as supernatural creatures. The snakes are known to possess extraordinary healing power according to ancient Greek mythology. Also, snake venoms have been used for traditional medicine formulation for a long time in history. The snake spirit in your day can invoke the power of healing. If you have been suffering mentally, physically, or emotionally, the snake spirit animal is here to let you know that you are on the path to getting better. The sufferings will come to an end soon enough and a new journey is about to get started.
Change: If you have been experiencing the presence of a snake quite often, it can indicate a bigger shift or a noticeable change in your life. Sometimes, the change might take place in yourself. You might experience a different emotion, a new you, a new attitude, or a new way of perceiving things.
Wisdom: Snakes are said to have evolved on the earth since the primordial beginning of time. Snakes are one of those few spirit animals whose mention can be found in almost all major ancient religious texts. Snake as a spirit can bring you on the journey of knowledge and wisdom. The answers that you were looking for, the conflicts and confusions in your mind, or the spiritual call that you were questioning for a long time will be opened unto you. The snake spirit animal will show you the light of wisdom in your darkness.
Protection: The snake as your spirit animal also provides you the shield of protection. It makes you aware of any evil forces that might come on your way and helps you to overcome all kinds of obstacles with ease. If you are trying to start something new or want to set for a new journey, invoke your snake spirit animal to give you power and protection against anything negative.
Flexibility: Snakes are known to be hypnotically charming and flexible. The way they move from one place to the other is quite a show. The snake spirit animal brings flexibility in every aspect of your life like thinking, communicating, managing, organizing, etc. If you have been disoriented and chaotic lately, the spirit animal will help you to be flexible, disciplined, and organized.
Detecting Danger: Snakes mostly rely on their instinct to determine danger. It has a group of sensory receptor cells to feel the vibrations in the ground of an approaching animal. If the snake is your spirit animal, it will charge you with the same instinct energy to identify anything wrong in your surroundings. This will help you to tackle your enemies or any challenging situation in the most tactical way.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
IX. 9 OF SWORDS
The Nine of Swords depicts a woman that is sitting on her bed while she holds her head in her hands. It appears as though the woman has just awakened from a very bad nightmare. She seems to be upset, anxious and fearful. Nine swords are hanging on her wall, and a carving that depicts a person defeated by another can be found in her bed. The quilt has been decorated with various astrological symbols and roses. Here we see the same woman in that we saw earlier in the Eight of Swords – and perhaps, she was finally released, but haunted by the nightmares of the suffering she endured while she was left and deserted.
The Nine of Swords is often associated with fear and anxiety, about all the things that worry you and keep you up at night. Sometimes this card can be associated with trauma – one which may be shameful for you to confide with others about, and all the psychological responses that come from experiencing that trauma.

When we are never released from the entrapment depicted in the Eight of Swords, we escalate into the Nine of Swords, where we are plagued by nightmares. The suit of swords is one that is concerned with the mind, with logic, with intelligence, and with communication, but somehow the Nine of Swords was caught on the destructive end of the mind, the one which turns inward on itself, multiplies and festers. Questions are plaguing you, and you find yourself reciting all the possibilities – all the things that can happen to you. You are haunted by what could be.
There is a sense of repetition within this card, that some event which has troubled you before, and one which you managed to either repress or run away from, is coming back again. Sharing your grief does at least provide an outlet for your pain and may release you from carrying this burden alone. Is there anyone that you can feel comfortable speaking to?
Sharing your grief does at least provide an outlet for your pain and may release you from carrying this burden alone.
In cases where it is less about trauma and more about general anxiety, analyze yourself and think if this is a feeling that is within your control or if there are other factors that contribute to your anxiety. Concentrate on the matters which you can control, and learn to ask for help.
