Cosmic Serpent

Meaning, Messages & Magic

The Cosmic Serpent symbolizes ancient wisdom, paradox, wholeness, and creation. The Cosmic Serpent carries with it the story of creation, universal wisdom, and truth.


No time, space, or dimension can hold the Cosmic Serpent. It’s a master observer, as it’s everywhere at all times, reminding us of the illusions we keep ourselves in.


This Serpent is a strong symbol of paradox with its ability to equally hold opposites as truth. Everything has a light and shadow side to it or Yin & Yang or Serpent Twins. You can’t separate one from the other. They both offer medicine and teachings that bring clarity to the whole.

The Cosmic Serpent is a beautiful creative artist, using its body as a paintbrush to illustrate wisdom through imagination. When the Serpent Twins twist together they show the forming of a double helix (DNA) – the essence of creation. When the Serpent forms an open or twisted circle eating its tail it becomes an Ouroboros, signifying infinity and the cycle of birth and death.

    I was meditating and sun gazing when I had the urge to cover my face with my hands. While my hands covered my face and my eyes closed, I saw something like a snake with a. Dragon’s face with fangs and small horns. Or something like that like a cosmic serpent. It staredm at me and iI became scared . It transformed I to an eagle. Please let me know where can I find information about this experience.

    If you look at the two lines most storms cross the turtles back you will find these two brothers of the rainbow and feathers still travel with the star brothers as they slay enemies and give water. Sorry just looking to see what you have of the gaun. Love your art.
