Seahorse Positive Totem and Symbolism

The male seahorse impregnated by the female and carries the offspring to term. This totem is sharing the load in the home, and gaining perspective of both genders.
The seahorse has a boney exoskeleton which is a totem of protection. Often when the seahorse comes to us it is a sign that we need protection.
A relatively calm, and mild-mannered creature, the seahorse is seemingly content to roam the seas. Their bodies are geared for ambling-type motion. They are symbolic of patience and contentment - they are happy with being where they are, and are in no hurry for advancement.
Further testimony to these attributes is the lack of evolution of the seahorse’s body style. They have remained with this body style without change since their inception. Content to be who they are, and not feeling the need to change.
The seahorse wraps its tail around the nearest object in order to anchor itself in turbulent waters. This is a lesson to be persistent in our goals.
