Path, Soil Protection, Reputation
Path: A Snail creates a slime trail for ease of movement over all terrains. It shows the easiest and most efficient path to follow for those with Snail energy.
Patience: With its slow movement it teaches the virtues of patience, perseverance and respect.
Protection: A snail under threat will withdraw into its shell until it considers that the threat has passed. This ability to protect itself is very beneficial providing one does not become a hermit or reclusive by choice.
Reputation: Snails often come out after the rain and the trail they leave is visible for all to see. This trail, or reputation, one leaves behind, often requires issues to be redressed and healed to correct imbalances which may have been caused. Ultimately this leads to growth as previous blockages are now removed.
