The snake or serpent is a symbol that can be found in several different cultures all over the world. They can represent fertility, creative energy, growth, awakening, rebirth, and transformation. The ancient ouroboros symbol represents the continuous renewal of life.
To us it represents awakening. In Hinduism the serpent lies at the base of your spine in what is called kundalini energy. As it awakens it travels up your spine, activating your chakras and opening you up to an expansive state of consciousness. The snake also represents the shedding of skin. As we grow and awaken in our lives, past versions of ourselves must be shed in order to hold more space for the present self.
