Throughout time in myths and
legends, Alligators have been depicted as symbols of fertility and creativity, jaw
snapping fierceness, and creatures of stealth. Alligator totem reminds one to
be grateful and appreciate all the gifts that are offered in your life. Alligator
totem shows how to treat ourselves in a gentle manner without judgement when
reviewing how far you have traveled toward your goals and supports the realization
of completing of long held ambitions. Alligator Totem symbolizes renewal
and new beginnings as you emerge from a dark period of your life. Alligators
are loners, shy and tend to move through their environment unnoticed. Alligators
move slowly and deliberately until someone invades their space. Alligators take
time assessing any troubling situation once satisfied they act swiftly without
hesitation. When the Alligator appears, you need to take your time to gather
the facts, look at the situation from all perspective angles, and digest what
you are experiencing rather than rushing ahead in judgement or rash action.
Alligator totem reminds us to be flexible and to roll with the circumstances.
