Animal symbolism & Animal Totems or Animal Medicine is shared across cultures all over the world, mainly passed on through stories and teachings in Indigenous cultures. Mother Earth has many lessons to teach us, and she connects us with our animal brethren to remind us that we share this world with an unimaginable amount of intuitive and intelligent beings. A symbolic encounter can be at any level – it could be a random sighting of an animal you don’t normally see, or an animal appearing in your dreams. Basically, the animal making itself known to you. Take these encounters to heart and use the lessons animal medicine teaches us to improve ourselves and respect the natural world around us.
The connecting spindles of the spider web show us at all paths we travel are connected. Sometimes we feel lost and off track – this is the time to tap in to Spider medicine and remember that we are always headed in the right direction because all trails are connected. The 8 legs of the spider symbolize the infinite in the universe – there are infinite paths we could travel, and all of them are connected and lead to the right place at the right time. Worry less about what path you take, for you are always headed in the right direction.
