Snakes hold a special status in religion and spirituality the world over. One of the most (in)famous ones of those is the Cobra, of which there are several types. I have already written on two Egyptian Cobra Goddesses, Meretseger and Wadjet, and one Hindu one, Manasa. Cobra is one of my Power Animals that I am strongly connected to. She joined me in my early twenties after I already had Jaguar as my companion since childhood.
