I drove into town for a late breakfast and on my drive back to camp on a hilly 5-mile desolate road, a snake was slithering across the road and I was headed right for it. I shrieked out of reaction to fear of killing it beneath my car but, looked in the rear-view mirror and it safely made it across. (Did it stop right under my car and proceed after I rolled over it?) The snake was large and very bright white pink. I cannot find any images on Google that match its description. I am predicting that it is a Mojave Desert Sidewinder. What does it mean?
According to Spirit Animals and Animal Totems: The snake animal meaning is powerfully connected to life force and primal energy. In many cultures, it is revered as a powerful totem representing the source of life. When the snake spirit animal appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting.
The snake as a spirit animal can be to provide guidance about life changes and transitions, whether they are happening at the physical, emotional or spiritual level. Snake could appear as a spirit animal when you are stepping into the unknown and need support to move forward. This animal is typically close to the ground and can remind you of staying grounded as you move through changes.
