DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Blue Jay spirit | Embrace your sassier side!
Blue Jay encourages you to be a little sassy today! If there’s something you’ve been wanting, ask for it. If there’s an issue that needs confrontation, don’t sweep it under the rug or Blue Jay will drag it back out into the open. One word of caution, though – Blue Jays will eat the young of other birds – so be direct, but not destructive.
Blue Jay is known for being the ruffian and scalawag of the animal spirit world. These creatures are incredibly smart and focused, and they don’t tolerate nonsense. In the wild, Blue Jay attacks any enemy with bravery and assertiveness. This boldness expresses itself, even more, when the nest is in danger’ this Spirit protects his home without reservation even in the face of a larger predator.
Jays mate for life, giving them the symbolism and meaning of faithfulness and accord. When you are thinking of a Spirit who can represent lasting bonds between two or more people, Blue Jay is a perfect choice. Blue Jay Medicine resonates with loyalty, strength, solidarity, and patience.
Blue Jays symbolism has much in common with Raven Spirit and Magpies. They love to chatter and have a very intricate language. Jays have been known to mimic human speech, making them quite the impressionist.
This bird becomes an emblem of opportunity and expediency. They are not picky about where they build a nest. Rather they simply look for a functional location, including old mailboxes! Such resourcefulness is an attribute worthy of our attention. Blue Jay symbolism reminds us that if we LOOK closely, there are many possibilities around us daily.
There is no question that Blue Jay is a tad audacious, curious, and vigilant. They have a reputation as a trickster too. They are birds of action, determined to overcome any obstacle.
Surrender is not really in Blue Jay’s vocabulary. Many are comfortable in the company of humans, sometimes following a person that captures their interest. Wherever they travel, Blue Jays announce their presence with abandon.
Their vocalizations can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, Blue Jays can annoy other birds, disrupting a peaceful afternoon with their raucous calls. On the other hand, their fellow birds will appreciate their loud nature as Blue Jays also announce the presence of danger.
Blue Jays are often confused with Red Tail Hawks, not by sight of course, but by their ability to mimic this bird’s call. Can you also mimic the voices of others? Can you use your voice to disguise some aspect of your identity when you need to?
If you are working with Blue Jay spirit, you may have to call out what you see, even if doing so upsets or annoys others. Blue Jay meaning is as much about making sure your voice is heard as it is about warning of dangers to come.
Shakespeare and his contemporaries wrote about Blue Jay in an unfavorable way. In particular, the Blue Jay was associated with a woman whose refusal to follow patriarchal standards led to judgments about her having loose morals.
In this regard, Blue Jay meaning can both relate to debauchery or the concept that debauchery is in itself a judgment born of restrictive and patriarchal beliefs about women’s sexuality and freedom.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
In this tarot card, you will see a woman who calmly holds the jaws of a fully grown lion. Despite the fact that the lion looks menacing and strong, the woman seems to have dominion over it. What is captivating is how gracefully she controls the lion. She is calm and collected, which is representative for being in control and disciplined especially in times of great adversities.
The fact that she is also holding the jaws of a lion also shows that she has courage. Her control of the lion without being too rough shows love and compassion. The blue background over the mountains shows stability and the kind of calmness that comes with being stable.
The lion is a symbol of courage, passion and desire which are very much part of the human feelings that are necessary for survival. But if these feelings are not put in check can lead to our eventual destruction.
When you get the Strength card in an upright manner during your tarot reading, then it shows that you have inner strength and fortitude during moments of danger and distress. It shows that you have the ability to remain calm and strong even when your life is going through immense struggle. It also shows that you are a compassionate person and you always have time for other people even if it’s at your own expense.
Your resilience will greatly aid you, and your fearlessness means that you should have no issues speaking your mind.
Getting the strength card means that you are a very patient individual who is likely to accomplish anything that they put their mind to. Your resilience will greatly aid you, and your fearlessness means that you should have no issues speaking your mind. This card also indicates this kind of compassion will always be rewarded with having a lot of stability in your life either presently on in the near future.
