Cautious Crab Sea Spirit - Prints

Regular price $55.00
Background

Crabs cast off their shells for new ones, associating it with rebirth/cycles. The protective animal symbolism is evident in the hard, spiny exoskeleton found with these creatures. Reminding us of the cyclical nature in our lives and what protection we may need for the path on which we embark.

She also reminds us that we may live within the diversity of this world with the preparedness of a warrior (wearing armour), but we are born with this preparedness - we do not have to guard or defend ourselves on purpose. When we relax and move in the waves of wellbeing - moving in the natural flow of things, we have no need for defence. All of our needs are met, and we are divinely cared for.

The crab's ambulation is noteworthy. Never taking a direct (forward, or head-on) route, the crab makes its way on land with a sideways tap-dance. This is a reminder that not all paths are direct and not all ways will be forthcoming in their meaning. When you are moving in a certain direction, and you feel a bit misguided, call upon the travel-savvy crab. She will guide you in an unorthodox way - taking lesser known paths of least resistance and bring you to clarity.

The crab is content to move with the natural cadence of the moon, the water, the land, and the perfect rhythm of nature. We would all do well to follow her lead.
