DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Skunk spirit | Rely on your strengths.
Phew! Everyone knows Skunk’s power—that’s why people (and other animals) get out of his way! If you’re lacking self-esteem, Skunk is there to help. You are worthy of a happy life—and if someone is making you miserable, look to Skunk as a confidence builder. Remember, though, Skunk doesn’t have to spray to be powerful—his reputation precedes him! And, like Skunk, you don’t need to spray either-but you do need to stand your ground calmly, and with Skunk’s confidence.
Skunk spirit signifies resource management. After spraying its special liquid, a skunk’s glands require many days to replenish. As a result, they only deploy their defenses when essential. So, a skunk spirit carries this massage within: “Never attack – if not necessary.” Skunk’s spray protects it against predators, thus there aren’t many. A skunk may live a pretty tranquil existence, free of tumult and crazy entanglements. People tied with the skunk spirit, also tend to prefer a serene lifestyle. Skunks are not that large.
Grasslands, woodland edges, and even desserts are among their favorite habitats. Skunks like to live in sheltered places, hidden from the human eye. They prefer secret hideouts and unique environments. Skunks have an annual birth cycle, generating between 2 and 10 offspring. Skunk babies are completely reliant on their mothers for the first three weeks of their lives, as they are blind. They can stay in the den for up to a year after that time has passed. Despite this link, they become solitary after a year. The only time you’ll see Skunks together outside of mating season is in the winter, when they cluster for warmth. Thus, skunks’ independence is embedded in their characteristics. As part of its symbolism and meaning, the skunk spirit provides good grounds for distinctiveness and independence. The skunk spirit is the epitome of awareness. You must use caution and be aware of your surroundings. As a result, you will not be wasting time and effort. Don’t be caught off guard and follow your intuition. The skunk spirit also teaches us the importance of inner peace. Is this a struggle I should engage in? Is this the correct time, place, and conditions to do so? Skunk only picks up a fighting charge when it’s necessary. Peace may also refer to the end of internal conflicts and the beginning of a period of settlement. Skunk spirit instills confidence in ourselves. With Skunk on your side, you can take on any problem while keeping calm and composed. Your mood might transmit to others, resulting in a much more relaxed relationship. You have a fantastic opportunity to practice boundaries and self-reliance in every situation. Skunk Spirit shows up with help when you feel overwhelmed with your surroundings. Skunk understands how to keep calm. Your spirit is imbued with inner tranquility. You can live with it while keeping true to yourself.
Skunk spirit tend to have a bit of a loner characteristics. They value their own space and think that others should respect their personal space too. When these individuals are forced to indulge in unwanted environments, they become a bit passive-aggressive and do their best to avoid communicating with their surroundings. If you feel connected to the skunk spirit, it may indicate that you have a hot temper. You are very well aware of your ability to state your mind in every situation, whether be it with the help of aggressive behavior, or just sweet talk. You always feel the need, to be honest with everyone. But you don’t always show aggression, that side of yours shines through when absolutely in need. When others show you respect, you try to show your gratitude straight away – through actions!
DAILY ORACLE CARD
X. WHEEL OF FORTUNE
The Wheel of Fortune turns evermore, seemingly to communicate that life is made up of both good and bad times, and that the cycle is one that we cannot control. It is something that is subjected to both kings and workers, and that nobody on earth can avoid what is fated. When you have good moments in your life, make sure that you enjoy to the fullest, for what comes up must always go down. The same is true in reverse – when you are in a bad situation, things will eventually become better again.
The same forces that govern the changing of the seasons, or the rising and setting of the sun is also the master of luck and the fate of individuals.
Greater forces that are outside of human control are at work here. The same forces that govern the changing of the seasons, or the rising and setting of the sun is also the master of luck and the fate of individuals. Where it lands is as random as chance – you may find yourself at either the top or bottom, but remember that no matter what the outcome it may not last for very long, for the wheel always turns.
