Artist's Description

Lizard Animal Totem Symbolism:

The lizard animal totem is a reliable messenger from the spiritual realm. They are flexible and highly adaptive to their surroundings, capable of overcoming a plethora of adverse circumstances and personal attacks. Their ability to thrive in such conditions earns them the symbolism of being able to go with the flow and the inherent value of amalgamating in the wild. Lizards take excellent care of themselves, and they incite us to do the same. Like other reptiles, their scurrying nature allows them to escape predators more easily. This further supports the idea of them as adaptable and quite literally shows why they symbolize quickness. Lizards are also cold-blooded creatures, which incurs several harsh sounding attributes for them symbolically, such as shrewdness and introversion.

Symbolic Meaning Of Lizard:

Lizards possess one of the most remarkable and unique sets of defense mechanisms in the animal kingdom. Not only can they move in a way that makes it difficult to be caught: they are also experts in camouflage, utilizing trickery to confuse their predators and remain safe. Even this is not the highlight of their defense system, though.

When the lizards are caught by a predator, they are capable of shedding their tail in order to escape, leaving their captor completely boggled long enough to scurry away under rocks or into the jungle. Of course, they are able to grow it back with time, but the act still symbolic of quite a sacrifice in the name of survival. This act is a literal symbol of regeneration and shows us that we are capable of symbolically doing this ourselves. The new tail is also a symbol of growth and rebirth.

When lizard animal totems regrow the tail that they have shed, they are literally regenerating something that is lost. If these creatures can physically regrow a lost limb, then we can certainly regenerate parts of our soul metaphorically. All of these profound capabilities are gifts that should be appreciated and revered.

We, too, possess gifts, albeit not of the same literal nature. It’s our responsibility to exercise and utilize them at appropriate times so that we can take care of ourselves and live happily and freely, like the lizard. Although we may not have the same type of physical predator, there are still forces in life that are out to get us and prevent us from succeeding in all that we want. Individuals who gravitate to lizard symbols are prone to repetition and often find themselves going through the same cycles. While this can be positive, it is more often negative and unproductive.

If Lizard is your Animal Totem:

When this reptile is one of your personal Animal Totems you have the power to regenerate that which is lost. You are prone to repeating some cycles simply because your energy loves re create your emotional attachments in some way. You are extremely good at facing your fears and moving between realities and “otherworlds”. Rather, your personal energy thrives off of recreating. Exercise this process and attention to detail to ensure that you are not just riding the same Ferris Wheel over and over again. Use your talents in new endeavors in addition to perfecting the old.
