Time to come out of your shell and be yourself. Stop hiding.
If Crab has skittered across your path;
He is reminding you that not all paths lead directly to your personal goals. Sometimes a sideways approach is necessary. Shift your focus to what is all around you because your inner senses are trying to guide you through an easier way. Alternatively crab can be reminding you that community is vital for growth, however equally important is a time of introspective seclusion. Know when to withdraw and discern what is right for you.
This crustacean can also be letting you know that it is important to fuel your curiosity on all levels. Exploration of the world around you leads to discovering new horizons and a vibrant life.
If Crab is your Animal Totem;
You are usually very sensitive, shy and self-protective. Your trust must be earned. However once you befriend someone you become extroverted within their company. You enjoy exploring new challenges in life and have and your curiosity is never satisfied. You are constantly doing your inner work and deconstructing yourself and rebuilding who you are. You are always successful in reaching your goals but love to use unorthodox methods in getting there.
