Can’t see the future? Have no idea what to do with your life? Cerastes, a Spirit and Totem animal, can help you find answers. Tap into your intuitive skills while also being more flexible through cerastes’ symbolism! By exploring this Animal Guide’s meaning deeply, it will illuminate for you how they have helped guide others in their most confusing times.
In Greek mythology, Cerastes was a large serpent with four horns on his head. Stories depict him as being able to breathe fire and strike men down with one bite. The relation between the mythological creature and the real-world Cerastes or Horned Viper is that they both have supraorbital horns above each of their eyes!
The Cerastes is a desert-dwelling ambush hunter, primarily residing in the sand. Like its mythological counterpart, it buries itself with only two horns poking out of the Earth for unsuspecting prey such as birds and other small animals that think they have found food; however, this time not from an apple instead looking like tasty worms or caterpillars. The real-world version does just what its mythical namesake did: both represent strategic maneuvers, trickery, and deception.
If the horns of Cerastes represent an eternal connection to the Cosmos, then he must be worshiped by those who are devoted skyward. Zeus is a god that resides in this realm and has many qualities associated with it—such as being the Father of all Olympians. The mythic Serpent also holds significance for him; when sacrificed, its remains were buried within his temple walls.

Cerastes is a creature of cunning that waits for its prey to come close and then strikes. It buries itself in the sand until it hears something, digging out only when necessary or if they have found their desired target.

The Serpent is a symbol that appears in various ancient cultures, including Sumerian art. In Ancient Near East and Mesopotamian Empire, the Cerastes snake was depicted on boundary stones. Images of snakes also appear throughout Abrahamic traditions such as Christianity, where they are associated with deceitful tricksters who tempted Eve (with Serpent) by tempting her to eat from the Tree of Knowledge which had been forbidden to humans because it would give them knowledge about good and evil - this act is one of the original sins for those religions (though not all).
Serpents have been sacred in many cultures for centuries and represent renewal, beginnings, endings, knowledge of good and evil. The Milky Way Galaxy is one example among others that illustrates this connection—the image symbolizing All or everything.
Did you know that in ancient Norse mythology, a giant serpent emerges from the sea and grows so large it encircles the entire world? It is said to represent life’s ever-changing nature. The Aborigines of Australia tell tales of their own Rainbow Serpent or Wagyl Deity: A creature who moves between waterholes as it creates Earth’s mountains and rivers while representing Earth’sEarth’s element Water with its cyclical nature, which carries on throughout all seasons.
The Snake is the symbol of rebirth and transformation. It also has a dark side that warns about potential betrayal, so if you dream about your worst fears coming to life in the form of a serpentine creature slithering around on the sand – don’t worry! You are simply being warned not to be naïve or let yourself become too trusting, as this could lead to unforeseen consequences.
When Cerastes hides in the sand, it’s a warning for those who need reminding: Remain alert and on guard against someone doing things behind your back which may undermine happiness or success.” If bitten by Serpent in a dream foretells a period where one can experience visions (or start a vision quest). When Cerastes sheds skin signs, major transformations will soon occur.
Consider also the following: cerastes could refer to a type of Snake with toxin-secreting fangs; cerastes is a genus of colubrid snakes that exclusively inhabit North Africa and parts of the Middle East (and thus perhaps the symbolism in your dream). Ceratitis capitata is an insect that “, like all tephritidae, has a narrow body and long legs. The ceratitis capitata larva is distinguished by its ability to jump or leap.”
