How can I say this? Adam…likes snakes. Period. They are everywhere on his body, from jewelry to clothing, to accessories, to boots, to the real thing on the cover of Rolling Stone. I’m not sure why Adam likes snakes, so again, this article is strictly speculation.
One thing is for sure – the serpent is one of the oldest mythological symbols there is. Because this is so, I’m guessing that like the Egyptian symbols Adam loves to wear, the snake has some kind of meaning for him beyond just looking cool.
The interesting thing about the serpent is that there are both positive and negative symbolic values. So which side of the serpent appeals to Adam? Perhaps it is a little of each. On the positive side are healing, guardianship, renewal, rebirth and regeneration. Interestingly, many of these attributes are the same as the Egyptian symbols Adam wears. Other symbolic meanings for the snake include patience, eternity, balance, cunning, intuition, awareness, intellect, protection, rejuvenation, transformation, knowledge, and yin-yang. Many of these qualities can obviously be associated with Adam – we know that he’s aware, smart, and intelligent. We know what a chameleon he is and how he can transform into any type of performer he wants to be.
But what about those negative meanings? There is temptation of course, as well as deceitfulness and vengefulness. I’m sure there is temptation in Adam’s life, as there is in all our lives. However, I’m hoping that deceitfulness and vengefulness are not.
And last, but not least, this article wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t say that Adam himself is the greatest snake charmer of all. He has charmed, captivated, and mesmerized us with every single performance he’s done!
So do you share Adam’s love of snakes? Why or why not? Personally, I’ve always liked snakes, but not to the extent Adam does. I do have a blue glass snake pendant that I wear to work sometimes. My boss told me she didn’t like it. That was reason enough for me to keep wearing it! Who knows, perhaps that’s one of the reasons Adam wears snakes – just another way to be provocative and get people talking.
