Throughout the world, snakes are highly regarded animals. In many cultures, the snake symbolizes fertility, transformation, creation, immortality, and rebirth.

If you are a Scorpio and have recently felt stagnant in life and wished for something new or more, then this may mean that it is time for you to let go of a part of yourself.

When Scorpios want something they go after it, and they don’t stop until they get it. Their persistent nature can sometimes blind them to truths. It also can make them resistant to change. This is where the snake spirit animal comes along and pushed them to experience rebirth.

3. Lemur

It is popularly known that Scorpios can give off the impression that they are very serious people. This is true, Scorpios are very serious and barely ever let people into their personal lives. This Scorpio trait explains how the lemur is the best spirit guide for this sign. The lemur guides those who need an adventure or take everything too seriously.

Lemurs hug as a way to certify social bonds and to keep warm. Not only is this very cute, but it is something that can be beneficial for the lives of Scorpios. This is because Scorpios can be quite solitary, and this spirit animal encourages them to not be afraid to confide in and find comfort from their support system.

Furthermore, Scorpios are also popularly known for being vengeful and have the bad reputation of being seen as manipulative. This is somehow true, especially in the case of undeveloped Scorpios that have not explored themselves. However, the lemur spirit animal remedies this by infusing the Scorpio’s life with positivity. It balances the inner darkness that Scorpios face with the light.


The Scorpio energy shows the nature of death. Similar to Fall coinciding with Scorpio season where leaves fall from trees representing the end of a cycle. This illustrates how every hardship is temporary and the butterfly reminds you to treat yourself with empathy when going through it.

In many ways, Scorpios represent ego death and the unraveling of self to birth a new version of themselves! This isn’t easy, but it is a journey and sometimes necessary for a Scorpio to undergo these types of changes. Thankfully, the snake helps Scorpios stay grounded throughout their healing process.

One of Scorpios’ life lessons is to surrender. To surrender to their emotions to trigger deep transformations. This can be scary but their spiritual team including the animal guides helps them not feel engulfed in their negative thoughts. For example, the lemur spirit guide carves a path out of the darkness to more positive thoughts about life.

If you are a Scorpio, remember that you are loved and that you have a spiritual team assigned by the Universe to assist you in the metamorphosis you will experience. Darkness is temporary, let yourself believe in the good and positive.
