☆♥*♥☆ Lizard Wisdom ☆♥*♥☆

by Lorraine Valente

 My friend Trish wants to know the symbolism of Lizard.

Granite Night Lizard
Lizards are basically "Earth" creatures yet many are very good swimmers. The love basking in the sunlight as they are cold-blooded reptiles. A lizard's keen sense of vibrations from the ground, excellent hearing, and sharp eyesight enables them to detect the slightest movement. One fascinating ability lizards have, is being able to break off their tails to escape predators. As their tail is writhing, it distracts the predator so the lizard can make its escape! Unfortunately, a lizard can only do this once because the tail grows back cartilage instead of vertebrae. :-)

Common Garden Lizard
In myth, Lizard is associated with dreaming. Dreams awaken our unconscious mind and make us aware of issues we haven't been ready to face in our conscious lives. The Romans depicted lizard in art as symbols of death and re-birth. Egyptians considered lizard to signify wisdom and good fortune and sometimes fed them as pets keeping them under their house.  They were accepted as omens of good luck and happiness. Europeans believe that if a lizard crossed the bride's path on the way to being married she would never be happy!  Lizards are also often used in "love charms".

Lizard appears when we need to analyze your present reality and brings the message for immediate change in some area or areas of life. This change can represent letting go of old ideas or negative behaviors which endanger our growth. There is a need to become objectively detached in some area of life. Lizard asks you to pay attention to your dreams, perhaps even creating a dream journal.  It is through our dreams that we may manifest our reality.
