The spirit of this archetype is to connect with intuition and let go of limitations.
The snake sheds its skin whenever it needs to, leaving behind old beliefs, patterns, attachments, etc., to advance to a state of greater consciousness.
Intuition is felt in the body, but in order to receive its clear and precise message it is necessary to refine and calibrate our perception, clearing away the negative aspects that have forged our personality. Many times we stop acting for fear of being rejected, unloved or excluded, we have ideas or thoughts in line with these fears and beliefs and we unconsciously limit our ability to be happy. This is where the serpent archetype invites us to go deep within ourselves to clarify and shed light on our essential being.
