2009 Animal Guides for Sherry
You get 3 Animals to help guide, teach, and comfort you this year. I drew 2 of them, the other flipped out of the deck. The 2 I drew were Wolf and Cockroach... yep... Cockroach. The first time I looked through this deck I thought... "you have got to be kidding me, a roach is an animal in my deck, ick."
Well... let's look at this amazing critter a little more closely. Survivor, adaptable, scavenger, resourceful, opportunistic, prolific. These critters make due, quite effectively, with whatever they find. They are the ultimate re-cyclers. They are everywhere... in some species or another all over the world. There are some incredible messages and lessons from roaches and in my opinion some of the best messages for this economic time in our country. Really try to embrace him.
Next we have Wolf, a very common animal totem. This particular wolf card shows 2 wolves... the white one almost seems like a spirit wolf to me. This really indicates that they have a spiritual message not just a physical message. Loyalty, family, intuition, use of all of your senses, and journeying. Not just going places in the world, but being on a spiritual journey or personal growth. Similar to dogs, but not quite the same, I think wolves are an animal we can all easily feel close to. Almost comfortable or comforting in a way. I'm hoping you get a lot of support from your family and friends. I feel like a great sense of relaxation, relief and comfort is needed for you while you expand your horizons and really learn to use your intuition.
Swan happened to fly out of the deck... so I figured it wanted to be here. Swans are graceful and beautiful. They carry these messages. Look beneath outer appearances however... see what's really in a person's heart and soul.
Roach: Adaptive, survival, observation, cleverness
Wolf: Pathfinder, freedom, camaraderie, decisiveness
Swan: Beauty, Grace, sensitivity, healing
Well... no mythical beings, but you did get an animal that will be around long after we are extinct.
Hope these animals help you throughout the year...
