The snake. It was the first temptation of mankind in the bible. Leading humans to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge and thus damn themselves. It does cut a tempting figure, long and lithe, gliding seamlessly from place to place. They’re beautiful, mysterious, and dangerous to the prey they happen across.
In some cultures, snakes were fertility symbols. For example, the Hopi people of North America performed an annual snake dance to celebrate the union of Snake Youth (a Sky spirit) and Snake Girl (an Underworld spirit) and to renew the fertility of Nature. During the dance, live snakes were handled and at the end of the dance the snakes were released into the fields to guarantee good crops. In other cultures, snakes symbolized the umbilical cord, joining all humans to Mother Earth. The Great Goddess often had snakes as her familiars—sometimes twining around her sacred staff, as in ancient Crete—and they were worshiped as guardians of her mysteries of birth and regeneration.
