A snail retreating into its shell: you expect something from someone, but are being kept in suspense. Eating snails: you are trying the patience of another person to the limit! Crushing a snail underfoot: your carelessness is putting you at a great disadvantage—serves you right!
Depth Psychology: The snail symbolizes your sensitivity and vulnerability.
