If you chose Card 1:
Cobra - Pausing, Waiting, The Inner Teacher The cobra represents a teacher or spiritual guardian. The cobra hovers and watcher, ever-present, every-loving. The essence of the cobra is found deep within us in the form of the inner-teacher, and manifests externally in those special guides who've led us along our path. What would it feel like to be a student again? What are you ready to learn? Remember the old saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." The snake can symbolize spiritual guidance. The presence of the snake in your life often means that you are in a period of transition and it points to ways promote your personal growth. 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. When the snake spirit animal appears in your life, it likely means that healing opportunities, change, important transitions, and increased energy are manifesting. When this fire energy is in balance, you are a student of life, humble, and wise. When this is out of balance, you may become a bit of a know-it-all and perhaps even egocentric. To bring this into balance, consider taking a class, and study.
If you picked Card 2:
Frog - Clearing, Cleansing, Healing The frog and the water element are almost inseparable. The frog spend its first months of life entirely within this healing element, and then emerges to rest on land. But no matter how "Earthly" the frog becomes, their need for cleansing and rejuvenation is regular. Frogs tend to become overworked and undernourished, so it's vital that such sensitive creatures practice self-care. This card serves as a reminder that water helps us cleanse, forgive, and release. Time to dive in. Frogs aren't meant to carry a heavy load. The frog totem symbolizes the cycles of life, in particular the rebirth stage. Its own journey through life, from tadpole to the adult state, reminds us of the many cycles of transformation and rebirth in our lives. The symbolism of the frog as animal associated with birth and rebirth can be traced in Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome and other cultures from antiquity. The frog was a popular symbol for fertility, as well as rebirth or resurrection. For example, in the Ancient Egypt mythology, the frog was associated with resurrection; the Roman Venus, goddess of Love, was often depicted with a frog. The frog is an amphibian and goes easily from water to earth during its life. By extension, it has been often revered as a symbol of transition. If you see the frog as your animal totem or spirit guide, you may be called to experience change in your life. Those changes might be with regards to how you lead your life and can also be of spiritual nature. When this water energy is in balance, you may have clear energy and an enthusiasm for life. When this energy is out of balance, you may feel depleted, as if you are running on empty. To bring this energy into balance, get to a lake, river, ocean, or even bathhouse to replenish and reconnect with water.
If you selected Card 3:
Earthworm - Shy, Hesitant, Reluctant to Share Inner Vision We have all felt the woes of the Earthworm at some point along the way. The earthworm at some point along the way. The earthworm indicates a newbie or novice working to establish confidence in a new field. Others around you may seem wise and experienced, but it's important to remember they once felt earthworm energy, too. This card is a reminder to not be intimidated or lose hope. Mastery takes time, and you're on the right track. Besides, rumor has its beginner's mind offers the most valuable insights. If the earthworm has come to you, feel blessed that the little creature teacher has come to remind you to be comfortable with your emotions but more importantly to aerate the soil of your soul with productive and fertile actions and thoughts. The earthworm is the spiritual groundskeeper. In real life it both nourishes the earth and takes nourishment from the earth. As a guide, it says that through interacting - literally - with the soil and earth around you, you will find nourishment, and in turn nourish. It's time to do the dirty work. If you do it already, then there is emphasis on its healing nature in your life at this time. If you're not used to getting your hands dirty, it's time to do so! The wisdom of the earth is vast, sometimes even overwhelming, but if you take it into your life at this time, earthworm knows it will help you. When this earth energy is in balance, you are earnest, intelligent, and feel valuable. When this energy is out of balance, you may be self-conscious and apprehensive. To bring this energy into balance, speak up and risk embarrassment.
If you were attracted to Card 4:
Butterfly - Undergoing Great Change and Transformation The energy of the butterfly is with us during periods of transitions. Since air is usually the element of the heart, this change usually involves relationships (of if you love your job - perhaps your career). Since transition is accompanied by some amount of discomfort , be extra patient and kind during this time, especially of the butterfly is you. Let solid friends and activities support you like a "cocoon". Committing to one daily routine (a meal, practice, or prayer) done at the same place and time, will do wonders for lifting a Butterfly's spirit. When the butterfly comes into your life as spirit guide, you may be going through or expect important changes in your life. More than changes in your environment, the transformation the butterfly totem points to are more internal: They could be related to your own perspective on a subject, aspects of your personality, or personal habits. Personal transformation is emblematic of the butterfly symbolism. Know that massive changes are afoot. Butterfly is asking you to embrace those changes in your environment and with your emotional body. This physical transformation of energy around you is taking root and expanding in ways that may surprise you. Release any expectations you may have with regard to the outcome of this change and do not try to control it - but simply allow it to flow through and around you. Keep your faith. When this air energy is in balance, you will feel cheerful and graceful. When this energy is out of balance, you may feel fragile and frustrated. To bring this energy back into balance, create a daily routine.
