The crab is a creature of the shoreline, occupying both the land and the sea, but connected to neither completely. The crab emerges where the waves pull back from the sand, scuttling out of holes, approaching its existence with its sidewinding gait. The crab is tenacious—occupying two worlds at once—and it has the power to regenerate. It is a powerful symbol of the earth as well as a constellation of stars in the night sky. Invoking the crab is beneficial for those who are in transition, and looking for a way of navigating life’s varied and ever-changing elements. The crab reminds us to yield, that we can be more than one thing in a lifetime.
