“I can only say I’m sorry” ~ Indiana Jones
Apologies in advance my dear herpetophobics.
Slip back from the screen now, if you are one of the 56% of adults who have a fear of Snakes, yes I know! I should be included in that number; well I don’t have a fear as much as lets say, an aversion, when I come face to face with these little slippery sliders coming towards me, especially as there are many living in Australia, but let’s not get hiss-terical because it’s all “Adders” up
(Nathair) Depicts Transformation. Healing. Life energy.
In the tradition of the Adder:
“I am a serpent, I am Love, and I have been an Adder of the mountain.
I have been a Serpent in the river” ~ Taliesin.
It is possible that the story of St Patrick ridding Ireland of snakes refers to the Druids.
Let go of all your worries and start to forget who you are, lose track of time and you may find yourself gliding towards a glimmer of light.
The Snake’s ability to shed its skin suggests that it holds the key to the mysteries of healing and rebirth. The Welsh bards even referred to the Druids as Naddred ~ Adders.
The Druid Animal Oracle ~Phillip and Stephanie Carr-Gomm.
Celtic Zodiac ~ Adder – Snake
“In ancient traditions as well as modern times, snakes are symbols of healing powers and opportunities” ~
