DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Snake spirit | Encourage self-transformation.

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? 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 as a spirit animal 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. If your spirit guide is the snake, then 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 who are cold-blooded and crawl their way forward smoothly. The 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 are:

Primal Energy
Rebirth
Healing
Change
Wisdom
Protection
Flexibility
Detecting Danger

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. When the snake is your spirit, it 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 life 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 guide 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 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
ACE OF WANDS

Lots of Ace energy this week!

Wands symbolize creativity, and the Ace of Wands is the boldest among the cards in the suit. It is not the kind of creativity that you learn from school or as a hobby.

When you draw the Ace of Wands, it is an indicator that you should just go for it. Take the chance and pursue an idea that you have in mind. Take the first steps to start the creative project. The Ace of Wands calls out to you to follow your instincts. If you think that the project that you’ve been dreaming of is a good idea, and then just go ahead and do it.

This powerful aspect brings us opportunities for success as long as we’re determined to follow our dreams.

MAR 25 — MARS ENTERS CANCER

Finally leaving Gemini, warrior Mars can feel a little water-logged in nostalgic Cancer. Our battles turn to the home front, as we’ll do anything to protect our space and keep our loved ones safe, though we can easily be passive-aggressive with those we love, too.
