DAILY POWER ANIMAL
Beaver spirit | Work hard, reap the rewards.
Beaver may be one of the hardest-working animals on the planet. Beaver is attuned to both earth and water medicine and is strongly attached to home and family. Beaver appears in your reading to remind you that sometimes there’s no substitute for hard work. Make a plan, create a solid foundation, then take the next indicated step.
These animals are hard workers and resourceful and know that there’s more than just one way to approach obstacles.
Beaver spirit is a symbol of persistence and hard work. The beaver spirit encourages you to put your best foot forward at the start of a demanding project. This animal also stands for productivity. The beaver can set ambitious goals and motivate themselves to achieve the impossible. The beaver also teaches us the power of teamwork to reach our goals faster and the importance of having a good alliance with our partners.
Harmony and success come from working together for a common goal, not from selfish action. Additionally, the beaver offers new horizons regarding our problems at home, giving us hope and fresh perspectives. Every time you need to finish a task in record time and with effective results, you can ask the beaver for inspiration. Then, you won’t waste your time on unnecessary distractions, and focus on the essential aspects of the project. The beaver helps you fight procrastination and teaches you the importance of discipline to achieve your dreams. If you have a plan, stop thinking about it and act on it! Also, the beaver meaning could symbolize that all your efforts and hard work have paid off. You are about to reap the rewards of your past struggles and endeavors. This spirit animal also prompts you that you build your emotions and physical strength. If you are not likely to hit the gym or check on your emotional well-being, this is a great time to do so. However, the beaver may warn you about devoting too much time to your work and neglecting your spare time. Pay attention to how you spend your energy and find a balance to avoid future health problems.
Beavers are disciplined and hard-working creatures. They diligently create and maintain their own habitat, patiently cutting down trees until they fall over, putting each log in its place, and building solid and long-lasting homes. They are nature’s engineers and help restore water systems. Beavers have enviable motivation and enthusiasm, know no rest, and do not complain about their responsibilities. If the beaver is your spirit animal, you are a driven, optimistic, and mature person. You don’t need other people to tell you how to get things done, as you have enough experience to carry out your endeavors. You also enjoy teamwork and accomplishing shared goals. You are not selfish and do not try to overpower others. You are open, collaborative, and non-judgmental. However, you can also tend to be overly demanding and put work above all other areas of your life, such as your leisure time or social activities. You can also be a little hard on yourself when things don’t go as expected or when you take longer than hoped to reach your objective.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
V | 5 OF SWORDS
The Five of Swords card depicts a young man who has a very convenient look of contempt on his face. He is looking at the enemies that he has managed to conquer. There are five swords that he possesses – which he has taken from the other combatants who are in the card. The two other figures are walking away from him in a slow manner with a sense of loss and sadness. Above them, the sky is tumultuous and cloudy, which indicates that not everything is well, despite the fact that the battle is already over.
This card indicates that you are engaging in a conflict of some nature. It can also suggest a disagreement with others, which leads to hostility and tension. Despite the fact that you think you’ve won, you might still lose in the big picture, because you have annoyed or hurt those that you have argued with, and as a result, you are on the road to isolating yourself. Perhaps, at the moment, you believed that it was more important to be right rather than appreciate and understand where the other side was coming from.
Right now, it’s important to attempt to pick up the pieces. You still have the chance to act while the conflict is still fresh. You may feel as if everyone and everything is against you. You might also lose some friends along the way. This is why you will need to make a significant decision about your point of view. What is more important to you? Mutual progress, or winning? This might require you to stand up to a conflict within yourself.
What is more important to you? Mutual progress, or winning?
The card represents ambition in a way which is rather negative. Too much ambition without actual regard to the consequences or the people that you affect is never something good. Misplaced ambition such as the one depicted by this card can leave you as a dejected loser or a callous winner – in both cases, the connotation is rather negative. This card instead asks us to be more considerate of those that we surround ourselves with, to let go of ego.
JANUARY 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR
1/6/2023 FULL WOLF MOON IN CANCER: Your feeling of safety is now related to your home, family, and similar activities such as cooking and gardening. You may be prone to emotional fluctuations; you should learn to forgive and forget in order to avoid depression from thinking too much about things. Your perception of the world can be very subjective; try to create a certain distance without being bitter. Due to your rich emotional manifestation, you can create a real sense of belonging in the world.
1/14/2023 LAST QUARTER IN LIBRA: You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things nice rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.
1/21/2023 NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger, and jealousy.
1/28/2023 FIRST QUARTER IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
