With the Pisces Full Moon’s heightened intuitive energy today and people looking into the meaning of things more and more, along with inquiries about signs, messages, and symbolism I receive consistently, and a recent request for a source on interpreting symbolism, especially things like animal totems, I felt to share one of my favorite websites from Avia Venefica who shares insightful cultural and archetypal meanings of symbolism across the board. Her website is one of the most diverse sources (check out the menu of topics in the top, left hand corner) I think you’ll find helpful with learning to understand the deeper meaning of things and how to harness that for both personal and collective implementation and awareness.
Here is her site:
I also recommend tuning in and meditating on the symbolism in question, asking for its message directly and how it applies to you, as although there is universal symbolism, how and when something shows up for you can have its own meaning and interpretation, which can only truly be understood or accessed by you. And I truly believe that if you spend the time you will discover the meaning and make those connections to what is going on in your life that brings purpose to what has shown up.
Teaching yourself to engage your own inner wisdom and using things as aids and tools to access that, will help not only to empower yourself, but also strengthen your gifts and open up more doors within you that have been hidden, conditioned out of conscious reach, or repressed.
You can also simply go online and google key words to bring up associated links to what is in question and trust what shows up or what you’re drawn to, as there is always meaning to why that particular message has been brought to your attention. The same goes for a book you might see in a book store, or one you have that you pick up and open up to, finding the perfect message right before your eyes.
Also, stay very aware, present, and observant to things that happen, you hear, someone says, etc., at the time of the sign, just before, just after, and pay attention to recurring themes taking place in your life currently that are trying to get you to pay notice and either make changes, adjustments, are aiding inspiration, or simply are reiterating you’re on the right track and being supported.
Then be open and willing to accept the messages you receive, as if you have a pattern of denial this is the very reason the messages or reiterating signs keep showing up.
Much of interpretation is relative to you, and although things can be guides or someone else can tell you what they think, these are simply keys to help access those closed doors within YOU that has the answers and that you can then run with and discover whole new worlds of possibilities once you engage them with curiosity and trust.
Enjoy the journey!

Love this! The energy and insights go great with Tom Lescher/Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul on tomorrow’s New Moon energy I just posted. Loving how everything is increasingly weaving such synchronous threads. Enjoy!
1.“When I comprehended my darkness, a truly magnificent night came over me and my dream plunged me into the depths of the millennia, and from it my phoenix ascended.”
C.G. Jung, “The Red Book”
2.”At the beginning there was only Khaos (Air), Nyx (Night), dark Erebos (Darkness), and deep Tartaros (Hell’s Pit). Ge (Earth), Aer (Air) and Ouranos (Heaven) had no existence. Firstly, black-winged Nyx (Night) laid a germless egg in the bosom of the infinite deeps of Erebos (Darkness), and from this, after the revolution of long ages, sprang the graceful Eros with his glittering golden wings.”
3. “Devouring Time, blunt thou the lion’s paws,
And make the earth devour her own sweet brood;
Pluck the keen teeth from the fierce tiger’s jaws,
And burn the long-lived phoenix in her blood…“
William Shakespeare, Sonnet 19 (bolding mine)

Prompted by dreams of portals and moving in and out of magickal experiences and processes, I was reminded of the Mayan Vision Serpent, that became a prevalent and potent symbol in my life. Symbolism can help to trigger us to remember, as well as potently encapsulates the essence of something bigger that is limited through mere words or explanation. They can help us to tune in consciously and act as portal keys to walk through and into new experiences we desire,
and that await.
Integration is key to healing on every level. The Ancients knew this and now we are remembering that which was once known. The Mayan Vision Serpent was believed to be a direct link between the spirit realm of the gods and the physical world. It is often depicted with the spirit of a god or ancestor emerging from its jaws. According to the Maya, it is the axis atop the World Tree, which lies at the center of the Universe. This center axis, which the two create, communicates between the spiritual and the earthly worlds or planes. They create a doorway to the spiritual world, where one can access their innate power and integrate it into their physical experience.
To the Maya, serpents were a very important social and religious symbol. In Maya mythology, these revered serpents are described as the vehicles by which celestial bodies, such as the sun and stars, cross the heavens. The shedding of their skin made them a symbol of rebirth and renewal – a means by which we constantly regenerate, as we walk through one doorway of experience to the next.
The Earth experience is one of learning to consciously integrate physical and spiritual into an abundantly limitless, joyful, creative, magickal and unconditionally loving manifestation.
