What Message Does the Lucky Salamander Offer Us?

When we observe a salamander in nature, spiritual messages can be transmitted to us.

Some see this animal as a symbol of water and the life that emerges from it. Others will, on the contrary, see a sign of the burning energy of fire and the Sun. There are also some who will dwell on its astonishing ability to molt and change skin.

In short, the lucky salamander has obvious qualities on which it is good to spend a few moments... Who knows, perhaps we could find lessons there to apply to our own!

Yes, more than a simple message, some see through the salamander an almost magical creature with mysterious abilities or at least linked to the spiritual areas of life.

The salamander: a being of fire

One of the salamander's main qualities comes from its connection to solar energy.

This creature lives near water, it's true, but still spends most of its time on a sunny rock enjoying the invigorating rays of the day star.

It is said that a lucky salamander is capable of creating and extinguishing flames, crossing the hottest braziers without any burns and even mastering certain fire spirits.

It is probably these characteristics which made the salamander the symbol of the kings of France, and in particular of François 1ᵉʳ. (Here is a book to learn more about the subject. )

In short, this reptile is seen as having exceptional resistance to fire and heat in general.

According to some myths, it was salamanders who taught humans the mastery of fire.

This idea is the basis of two other interesting facts…

Salamander, blacksmithing and alchemy

On the one hand, blacksmiths and other glass blowers have made the salamander one of their emblems.

In fact, anyone working near a forge, a brazier or an oven can benefit from the protection of this animal.

On the other hand, the salamander quickly became a symbol of alchemy.

This esoteric art is largely concerned with the transformation of matter (the mind and soul changing as they are confronted with changes of a physical nature).

However, most very concrete transformations need fire. We could for example think of evaporations, fusions, transmutations, etc.

The salamander can therefore prove to be a powerful ally in this context as well.

The lucky salamander as a symbol of rebirth

When a salamander's tail is cut off, it grows back in no time.

Anyone who owns a reptile and has witnessed this true metamorphosis will tell you: no scientific explanation can describe the mysteries hidden behind the phenomenon.

It is therefore not surprising that the salamander has been associated with renewal, regeneration and, to some extent, eternal life.

In particular, the way the salamander's tail grows back teaches us an important message...

It is in fact only her own internal forces that she uses to achieve this “miracle”.

Who knows, maybe we also have such resources hidden deep within us!

So here is a great message of hope : even if we experience losses and upheavals in our lives, we undoubtedly have within us the means to overcome them.

It is for this reason that many of you choose to wear this salamander pendant, to remember this thought.

The duality hidden in the salamander

As we have said, the symbolism of the lucky salamander is closely linked to fire.

Some also see this creature as an expression of water energy, and therefore of the psyche, emotions and a certain fluid energy.

When we take the time to look at the salamander, we see that it is not wrong.

In addition, its link with the Sun makes it a perfect representative of the day. However, this animal lives a lot at night.

Here again we can raise a clear duality. Some see it as a lesson inviting us to seek balance in our lives.

In this specific case, it would be a question of making better use of our time between moments of action (day) and moments of rest (night).

It's interesting. Clearly, the lucky salamander is a very complex creature…

Here we have provided you with some keys to understanding that can put you on the right path.

Unraveling its mysteries, however, will first and foremost require personal reflection.
