Elephants - these gigantic majestic beings are traditionally considered symbols of good luck, nobility, wisdom, fertility, and protection. All across the world, the elephant has long been considered a sacred animal, although the spiritual symbolism of elephants changes slightly from culture to culture.


In India, an elephant is a symbol of royalty, divinity, and vitality, as well an auspicious agrarian symbol for rainfall. The Hindu God, Ganesh, is depicted as a six armed being with an elephant head and is known as the lord of new beginnings as well as the remover of obstacles. Learn more about Ganesh Here. 


In Africa, elephants symbolize royalty, sovereignty, tribal wisdom, and victory. Accounts of African mythology hold that elephants are reincarnations of deceased tribal chiefs, and as such elephants are respected and properly buried when they die.


The predominant “elephant symbol of” Japan is the depiction of the Buddhist deity Kangiten, or “Deva of Bliss” which is depicted as a woman and a man with elephant heads locked in an embrace.


In China elephant symbolism means the ability to understand the difference between good and bad, as well as wisdom, nobility, and fertility.


Elephants are powerful, wise, and protective presences that can help you better understand the world around you on a deeper, more intellectual and spiritual level. If you encounter elephants in your life, whether in pop culture, at a zoo, or in your dreams, pay attention. It is thought that an “elephant spirit animal” introducing itself to you is a sign that you need to overcome an obstacle in your life. The astrological sign of the elephant is a Taurus, and the elephant is associated with the root chakra, charging through blockages and offering energies of protection, love, loyalty, and quiet courage.
