Snail Meaning in Myth and Legend

Tecciztecatl:
Tecciztecatl is an Aztec moon god (Mexico). He was depicted snuggled up in a snail’s shell in ancient relics and Aztec art. In this culture, the snail is symbolic of the moon, and its phases. The spiral of the snail’s shell is also symbolic of the moon and its cycles. To the Aztecs, the snail is symbolic of time, transition, and even fertility.

Egypt:
The spiral is also featured in Egyptian hieroglyphics. The spiral is a common feature in nature. To the ancient Egyptians the spiral (and by association, the snail) was a symbol of the progress of life spiraling out and expanding. This concept deals with symbolism of: Consciousness, evolution and the expansion of life.

European Old Religions:
Old earth religions of Europe observed the snails horns peeking out after a good rain. They linked this with farming and agricultural cycles. They also attributed the snail’s sassiness in rain as a symbol of fertility upon the earth.
