Full Strawberry Moon in Capricorn June 29th 2018 August 28, 2018 13:01
as this Lunar month’s full moon Spirit Animal. I’ve been seeing slugs everywhere lately, but mostly eating the wild strawberries in our yard. I became curious to their meaning and lessons.
“Looking at the symbolism of the slug in various cultures, we can see that the slug was not always considered a nuisance but actually an ethereal being with healing powers. Some of the Native Americans used slugs to heal a toothache by allowing them to squirm around in their mouths. Apparently they believed that the trail the slug leaves behind has healing properties to it.
The slug is also considered a hermaphroditic animal and is therefore considered to embody both the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. Because of this, the slug is more a spiritual being than an earthly being. Great balance and strength is also a message that the slug can bring to its beholder. They are able to mate with any other slug and produce hundreds of offspring, and therefore also represent great fertility.
I used to see slugs as being snails that are "between homes" (shells) but I realized that slugs are actually different species than snails...they don't need a mobile home. They are strong without it. The slug is also connected to shamans of certain cultures because during mating the slug sometimes loses a part of its body, just as the shaman loses a part of himself in order to transition into the spiritual world.”
