animal spirits

My reoccuring animal guides that help me get through life.


"A masterful creation embodying grace, strength, intuition and honesty dedicated to human servitude. Major contributor in the quantum leap from agrarian to urban society, it also reflects the unification of male female energy. "

"The horse represents freedom and power. There is a lot of myth and lore associated with this majestic creature. Once wild horses numbered in the many millions. Eventually their lands were taken and they were hunted for domestication. Although the horse became a domesticated animal their spirit for freedom remained strong. They can be a bit unpredictable and have been known to revert back to their wild animistic nature.

Horses feel things deeply and have strong emotions. They can sense the energy field of others and respond to whatever that energy projects. This sensitivity is associated with psychic powers. Those with horse as a totem find comfort in being touched and benefit from bodywork.

Those with this medicine can be fiercely independent and have little tolerance for anything or anyone that limits their free expression. This characteristic can create challenges in relationships of all kinds, especially co-dependent ones. Those with this totem are teachers to their partners, friends and family showing them how to stand solid within themselves. Individuals who choose to be involved with a horse person do so because the need for self empowerment is strong. They seek the horse and the power it holds rather than the horse seeking them.

Because horse medicine people hold the energy of power their leadership and teaching skills are usually in demand. Intuitive and wise they make excellent therapists. They enjoy helping others but often feel as if there is no one to lead or teach them. If people become too dependent they will respond like a bucking bronco."

"Even though living in close knit packs provide wolves with a strong sense of family, they are still able to maintain their individuality. Wolves represent the spirit of freedom, but they realize that having individual freedom requires having responsibilities."

"A lone wolf is a wolf that lives by itself rather than with others as part of a pack. Some wolves will simply remain lone wolves; as such, lone wolves are usually stronger, more aggressive and far more dangerous than the average wolf that is a member of a pack. "
Lone Wolf. Wikipedia

"Often, the soul who has inherited the Gray Wolf as their Power Totem, is a soul who is constantly transforming themselves, improving themselves as they encounter the lessons and challenges of Life. The Gray Wolf is constantly presented with change and opportunities for growth. Despite all that is thrown in the Path of the Wolf however, he adapts himself to change. "
Life Paths. Animal Totems and Earth Medicine.

"Because wolf is a teacher and pathfinder, he comes when we need guidance in our lives. Wolf can also teach how to balance the responsibility of family needs and not to lose one's personal identity. Wolf teaches us to develop strength and confidence in our decisions. He shows we will learn to trust our insights once we learn how to value our inner voice. This wisdom keeps us from inappropriate action."

"Tigers are magnificent animals that hold an air of independence and confidence. Solitary animals, males and females come together only during the mating season."
Cycle of Power. Animal Totems.

"The Tiger, the living symbol of strength and power, generally inspires fear and respect. Tigers' compelling dynamism, intense activity, independence and curiosity about others make them irresistible, persons of multiple charms; Tigers attract followers and admirers. The Tiger has a regal quality and is courageous, active and self-assured; he makes an excellent leader and protector. Known for determination and charisma, the Tiger aims high and pursues goals with vigor, passion and daring. However liberal-minded Tigers may be, they are rash and resist the authority of others. Although they are selfish in the little things, they are capable of great generosity, even of altruism, in the larger. Tigers are men and women of action, thrust by destiny into the spotlight."

"Tigers make ardent and virile lovers who dominate their partners. Because of their sensuality, their impetuousness and love of adventure, there is an excitement that not only follows Tigers wherever they go, but also guarantees them a certain irresistible sexy allure. These creatures whose emotions are out-front have strong libidos and are lusty in their passions."
Tiger. Astrology.

"Tigers are essentially solitary and territorial animals. The size of a tiger's home range mainly depends on prey abundance, and, in the case of male tigers, on access to females. A tigress may have a territory of 20 square kilometres while the territories of males are much larger, covering 60–100 km2. The ranges of males tend to overlap those of several females."
