And all of a sudden a snake appears?

I was on a hike the other day by myself. I was walking back to the main trail and enjoying the view. I looked to the trail, looked away for 2-5 seconds and all of a sudden, a snake appeared right where I was supposed to step my right foot.

 

I veered away. I'm not that afraid of snakes so I spent a moment and vibe-checked her/him. S/he certainly seemed annoyed but s/he didn't bite me even though I was within biting range. Then I walked away and I'm sure the snake was relieved to watch me walk away.

 

I know snakes carry deep spiritual significance. I really don't encounter them often at all.

 

It was a small black grass snake. I really believe it was annoyed with me but declined to bite me.

What would this omen mean? What do the scriptures say about sudden yet merciful encounters with snakes?

@cathy As Amit mentioned Rahu is likely sending you a message (?)  In 1982 I went into Rahu dasa, followed by Jupiter and recently Saturn. Both Jupiter and Saturn are in strong aspect to Rahu. Snakes have been a frequent part of my life, including my boys having pet and one of my dogs being bitten by a venomous snake. Where I live now is somewhat rural sub-tropical and snakes are pretty much a given.  

From an astrological perspective I would consider where Rahu is placed sign/house and consider if any significance for you.  In addition, where you thinking on or considering anything before or during the hike that might have been "answering" you. And lastly google snake animal omen and see if anything resonates with you.

Let us know if anything shows up for you.

@ltreboot Ernst teaches that snakes are a great measurement of our spiritual development. I recently reviewed the Jaimini Sutras videos on the Rasis and the Scorpio video is all about it. If you haven't seen it, it's worth a watch.

I am extremely "blessed" with a very strong Rahu. I actually really enjoy the Rahu side of life. I realize that makes me an odd person but I wouldn't have it any other way. The ruler of Rahu is in the 6th which would suggest more rahuvian influence with wild animals (4th pets, 6th wild animals, 11th livestock per Ernst).

I was in Estonia when it happened and I was just in the back of my mind comparing Estonia with Ireland throughout my time there. Ireland is a country many of my ancestors come from. There is this belief/cute story that St. Patrick drove all of the snakes out of Ireland which I was raised with. I just assumed that there were no snakes in Estonia as its further north than Ireland. Maybe there's some kind of insight of perspective I can explore there. I can't believe snakes can live in a place that's so cold from November to March?? Do they just hibernate for that much time every year?

Also I just made friends with a professional animal communicator and I had a great conversation with her afterwards about how to vibe-check wild animals!

I encountered snakes couple of times all of a sudden in early childhood in a very close range of biting. I did pranam to them. They did nothing to me. I was surprised why this happened those days as I was a kid. As years passed, I realised how Rahu bewildered me with his Dumbness. The meaning i can make out today is Rahu is a prominent part of my entire life and my attitude is you are welcome now in humility!

Rahu needs to be subdued like Lord Shiva has snakes subdued around his neck meaning victory over evil tendencies.  

You win Rahu, you win the evolutionary goal of life!

@amit Thank you for this perspective. I'm a big fan of Sadhguru and he has many stories about snakes. Often when he is conducting specific ceremonies, a snake is spotted approaching the star of the show. He teaches that as one does the work of transforming their consciousness and does things like meditate in the forest (like he used to do), he would sometimes open his eyes and see snakes resting before him. He says they only get aggressive if we get aggressive with them, they can sense our energy. He has an entire series on venomous animals and what their appearance means, and how to be with them.

 

@LTReboot Now that I think about it, I had bees following me the entire way to the beach and back on that hike. Maybe this was a sign I have made significant improvement in my spiritual work?! I am not scared of the bees either. I just let them buzz around me. The venomous animals were attracted to my energy and felt the peace from me. I think with the teachings from Sadhguru I can make more sense of it. I was thinking too "why can't I just have a sweet butterfly follow me around instead of a giant bee?"
