The Wily Fox ~ Be Like The Wind!
Animal Totem Friday ~ The Fox: Representing Cunning, Diplomacy, Camouflage.
Fox is an animal totem that has been showing up a lot in my life of late--as you can see by my Fox badge (from Coral and Tusk)!--so it was fun to explore this cunning, wily forest creature. My go to sources for exploring Animal Totems are the Druid Animal Oracle Deck and Medicine Cards (Jamie Sams and David Carson). Both are great resources, if you want to do more research or better understand your animal totem.
“Fox is a graceful creature who typifies the beauty and harmony of the natural world. Working with the power of fox, you will know when to come out into the open and be counted, and when to remain silent. With others, you will be able to be diplomatic – one of the attributes of Fox is being ‘strong in council'. However, take care, when working with Fox Power, not to let skill and diplomacy become dishonesty or slyness.” (Druid Animal Oracle Deck)
“If Fox has chosen to share its medicine with you, it is a sign that you are to become like the wind, which is unseen, yet is able to weave into and through any location or situation. You would be wise to observe the acts of others rather than their words at this time. Use your cunning nature in a positive way; keep silent about who and what and why you are observing.” (Medicine Cards)
