DAILY ANIMAL SPIRIT
Antelope spirit | Move or be still. Choose wisely.
Antelope medicine is one of right action. If you were to visit Northern Plains today, you would see groups of antelope scattered about the fields and hills. However they are so quiet and unmoving that (from a distance) they resemble stones. But, get too close and they move like lightening. Antelope asks you: are you being still when you should be moving, or moving when stillness is required?
Antelope belong to the species of animals with cloven feet such as goat, deer, gazelle, and oxen. The only true example of them come from Asia or Africa. What’s most interesting about observations of Antelope over time is that these animals were never really tamed even though they lived close to humans all the time. Talk about a stubborn streak of individuality!
Antelopes have many sizes and personalities. Most have brownish fur, but variants exist that include black, white, and striped coats. The Royal Antelope is the smallest of the lot, weighing only about six pounds. Nonetheless, this small creature has a huge following in African lore being acclaimed for its speed and wisdom.
Various cultures and societies used Antelope horns for Medicine, feeling that the horn was the center of magical Power. For example, although endangered, the Saiga Antelope horns are highly desired for Chinese Medicine. The horns are said to act as a curative for any “hot” sicknesses like a fever. There are some who also believe this horn works as an aphrodisiac.
In India, the Vedas mention Antelopes in connection with Deities. The Antelope is the vehicle of the Moon God Chandra. This is also true for Vayu, Lord of the Winds (see Divine Antelopes).
There is also Shiva, the Lord of Animals, one of whose manifestations is an Antelope. One story tells of Shiva as a handsome man. The wives of hermits in the Forest nearly forgot their vows to run after them. In retaliation, the husbands threw both a tiger and an Antelope toward him. When the Antelope leaped, Shiva caught it and held it still in the air, showing his Power over nature.
Keywords and characteristics of Antelope include protection, perception, olfactory impressions, movement, keen-mindedness, instinct, grace, flexibility, endurance, defender, communication, awareness, attentiveness, quickness, and atonement.
Antelopes eat plants and are fairly gentle animals. Their sense of vision, smell, and hearing is well developed. In fact, the Antelope’s eyes reside on the side of its head. These give them a better view of potential danger both in front of and behind them.
Antelope in Heraldry: Antelope periodically appears in heraldry. It sometimes represents a pure heart and fleetness of foot. Another assigned value is someone who loves music, has a quick mind, and the gift of prophecy. The depictions of Antelope were drawn from depictions, so they really didn’t look much like the real deal.
Divine Depictions of Antelope: Satis, an Upper Egyptian Goddess, had an Antelope as her symbol. She oversaw matters of war. It is believed she was part of a triad that included Khnum (who guards the source of the Nile) and Anuket (who oversees the Nile itself). Her images often include the crown of Upper Egypt that bears Antelope horns. Satis could also shapeshift into an Antelope at will.
In Babylon Marduk and Ea, both have Antelope aspects. Ea was a bit of a trickster who oversaw magic and wisdom. Marduk was the son of Ea and the national God of Babylon. Both were sometimes depicted as having an Antelope head or horns.
Hindu mythology has Soma, a moon God associated with Antelope. This was an important Deity in the Rigveda and has some parallels to Bacchus due to the sacred drink bearing his name. There is also Varuna, the God of Day, whose depictions include him riding a grand Antelope (or Gazelle).
One of the central messages from Antelope Spirit is “take action.” You have a door in front of you. Trust your instincts here. There will be some decisions along the way to the new opportunity that you really can’t put off. Antelope Spirit provides the energy for this endeavor.
The second reason Antelope Spirit may have run down your path is as a messenger. Your guardian angel is telling you that you are loved. You may not always perceive that and feel rather left by the wayside. That need not be so. Reach out, open your arms, and let someone in.
Antelope is a very watchful animal. What is it that you are not seeing? Step back and get a complete view of everything around you. Extend all your senses until you find that missing part of the puzzle; this is important before moving forward.
If you have a defined goal, Antelope has come supporting just that. This Spirit Guide has an immense amount of vitality and stamina from which you can draw. Be aware, however, that Antelope expects self-confidence: No being wishy-washy.
The Antelope Spirit sometimes comes to students who are struggling. Here Antelope offers you better focus and quick-mindedness to grasp concepts clearly and retain that knowledge.
For the time when you are walking with Antelope as a Spirit Helper, be aware that you will be on the move. Where some Animal Spirits show you how to think, Antelope tells you how to “do.” If you have been waffling or dragging your feet in some aspect of your life, that behavior is about to get shaken up.
In the workplace, the Antelope Spirit assists in evaluating your situation if you are feeling unsure. It is hard to deceive Antelope, and truth be told he has no patience for lies or duplicity. If manipulation is afoot, you will see it clearly. Better still, Antelope gives you effective strategies for fixing things.
For communication, Antelope gives you a dash of charm and charisma, which never hurts when you are trying to get your point across.
