In the native cultures of the Andes
Amaru is considered a symbol of destruction and also of protection. It is often represented as two intertwined serpents called Yacumana and Sachamana. The bicephalous serpent represents a duality of creator/destructor, being a celestial creature that has the ability to travel through the different levels of the cosmos (upper world, world here, underworld), transmuting according to its correspondences to each of them, becoming a link between these worlds.
Yacumana, one of the mythical serpents in the upper world, is the one that originates rains, thunder, hail, ice, and other atmospheric phenomena, and is associated with "quwa," a small "luminous feline" bearer of lightning and hail that causes them, representing the constellation known as "Scorpio" that announces summer. In the world here, it becomes the river that creeps over the earth, and in the inner world (underworld), it takes the form of a serpent.

Sachamana emerges from the interior in the form of a bicephalous serpent which, in the world here, takes the form of a tree, with its upper head feeding on flying beings and its lower head attracting animals from the surface of the earth. In the upper world, it transforms into the rainbow that fertilizes nature.
In the cultures native to Mesoamerica
The serpent was one of the animals with the greatest presence in the mythical and historical imagination of Mesoamerican societies. It was considered the being that led humans through different sites of the cosmos and as the organizer of time and the calendar. The Maya and the Mexica conceived the sacred serpent as the multiple being that enveloped the world and gave order and coherence to everything that existed within it. This being was the prime introducer of order into the world of mortals and the victorious annihilator of the chaos that existed before the creation of the things enjoyed by humans on Earth.

In the cultures inhabiting the Amazon
The anaconda is a shamanic animal. Shamans refer to the Amazon River as the terrestrial anaconda and to the Milky Way as the supernatural and creative anaconda. It is a dual animal, representing the masculine and feminine components as an opposite metaphor for day and night or the Sun and the Moon, one of the most important mythological aspects of Amazonian peoples. The relationship of this animal with water and the Milky Way is fundamental, as this galaxy forms the Amazon River itself as it descends from the sky.
