I’ve made a good start on my next Oracle Deck – Animal Guides – four done and many more to go
Ancient wisdom from around the world teaches us that all animals carry their own unique energy and spirit. Furthermore we can call on animals to help, protect, inspire, and heal us on our life paths. You might have a Spirit Animal who stays with you your whole life or you might encounter an Animal Guide for a particular time or situation. Animals can be our allies, guides and
sources of power throughout our whole lives.
So far I have completed Owl, Horse, Dragonfly and Fox. Coming soon – Swan.
Fox – Cunning, Camouflage, and Persistence
Fox is intelligent, clever and cunning. While it is persistent, fox is gentler and less aggressive than wolf. Fox is associated with feminine magic, offering the power of the feminine to both men and women. Read more about Fox on my recent blog post here.
Dragonfly – Guide to Transformation
and True Sight
With their translucent beauty, erratic flight patterns and speed, dragonflies have inspired people for centuries. They are found in myth and stories worldwide. They most frequently symbolize transformation, both physical and mental/emotional changes in self-perception. Read more about Dragonfly from my April post in FAR here.
Horse – Symbol of Power & Freedom
Worldwide the horse has come to symbolize power, grace, beauty, freedom, nobility and strength. The horse is emblematic of the life-force imbued with spirit.
The horse plays an important role in cultures all around the world, both culturally and symbolically. Read more about Horse in my February post in FAR here.
Owl – Guide to True Sight and Wisdom
Owl symbolizes perception and deception – quiet observation and wisdom. Owl is a harbinger of death through which we find the passage to new life. Owl with its large, all-seeing eyes peers deeply into the nature of reality, seeing what others fail to note. Owl, in the dark of night, in the dreamtime, gifts us with its all-seeing vision, opening our eyes to the truth of each situation. Read more about Owl in my December, 2017 post on FAR – Wisdom of Reindeer Goddess and Owl.
