The Snake Card Meaning

When we see a snake in the wild, we are not likely to approach it. Why? Because we don’t trust it! Instead, we would steer clear as we can’t be sure that it would have our best interest at heart. It is important to always remember the nature of the Snake when it surfaces in your reading. A snake, is a snake, is a snake. When the Snake appears in your Lenormand spread, trouble is afoot - just refer to the question you asked and the surrounding cards to determine which area it is referring to. Remember to never expect the Snake to represent something good - it is snake afterall.
