Moray Eel Symbolism & Meaning

In the world of magic occupied by animal spirits, the eel symbolizes the ability to survive come what may. They are shape shifters, naturally mysterious and elusive and they have a no-nonsense approach to survival. In other words, they are not afraid to get to pull a trick or two from their sleeves if it means being able to escape their current predicament.

Eels are pretty stealthy with their tactics, and are pretty good with the whole “smoke and mirrors” effect. They are the perfect embodiment of a now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t philosophy, evading the spotlight and leaving the audience wondering where they are and how they did it.

While these natural magician talents could have been used for more spectacular effects, the eel spirit animal uses it to keep a low profile. That does not mean you can’t find them, though. More often than not they can be found silently observing those around them, remaining in the murky depths until the need to show themselves arise.
