The snake/ serpent/ dragon eating its own tail. Being this is an ancient symbol that goes back before written time, there are several different meanings to the symbolism of this snake. Literally a snake eating its own tail, biting and devouring itself, the creation that comes from destruction, Life out of Death, the idea of a constant eternal return, and as a symbol of resurrection. From the Egyptian hieroglyphs, to Greek writing, the teachings of the Alchemy, the Norse legends, Aztec gods, Chinese, Hindu deities and more, all use the snake biting its tail as a symbol of the eternal transcendence and struggle.
Now, why the serpent/ snake love... The feel of a snake against my skin and hands has never scared or repulsed me. Quite opposite. I find it interesting how a snake moves, grows, and harnesses energy. It sheds its' skin, transforming itself, often thought to be a symbol for healing, and promote personal growth as well. Being I run very warm and have had long hair for the majority of my life, a friend I had in college had mexican milk snake I loved. His favorite spot was the back of my neck under my hair, in my hoodie, or the sweatshirts pocket. This was where my fear of them dissipated, and my interest grew. Snakes are an incredible totem for light healers.
