DAILY SPIRIT ANIMAL
GROUSE SPIRIT | DON’T BE AFRAID TO BEGIN AGAIN.
Grouse Spirit wants you to find trustworthy people for your life: Good souls who will not break your trust even when you choose some alone time for a while. Some sensitives suggest the Grouse Spirit speaks to you about your power in controlling your life, your vision, and your quest for greater wisdom.
Grouse, Chickens, and Quails are all related. They’re not a fancy flying bird. The Quail prefers staying grounded in a space where food and needs are abundant. About 18 species live in the Northern Hemisphere, where their feathered toes allow them to walk on the snow, so again flying isn’t a necessity.
Grouse embodies the energies of good parenting and protection. If danger arises, Mother Grouse does everything it can to lead the predator far away from the nest. If necessary, the female Grouse shows astonishing bravery by sacrificing itself to protect the brood. Here, Grouse symbolizes self-sacrifice for the greater good of the community, or that “the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
One of the most charming behaviors of Grouse is its mating dance. Some spiritually minded observers compare the Bird’s movement to Whirling Dervishes using sacred dance for trance and connecting with the Divine. The ancient ritual takes place on the same grounds every spring.
The dance begins with about a dozen male Grouses who boldly strut, fanning their tails as they go. They use the sacks in their throat to make a sound eerily similar to tribal drums. The sack inflates and deflates, and some males may use their wings in battle. Nearby, hens watch the dance with interest, sometimes for many days before choosing one lucky male. Here, Grouse comes to represent dance, trancework, communing with the Gods, ritual, and tradition.
In an odd dichotomy, spring is about the only time in which Grouse takes part in a group forum. They prefer a solitary life. Sometimes, small groups gather in winter out of necessity to find food. After gathering what they need, Grouse retreats to a space about ten inches beneath a blanket of snow; it safeguards them against harsh winds and low temperatures while providing convenient camouflage. For Grouse, it seems a perfect balance and causes the Bird to represent protection, self-preservation, thriftiness, and survival.
No matter the space in which the Grouse occupies, they hold their territory as sacred. Males occupy an area of about 7.5 acres, on average. The Bird’s space overlaps with the territory of one or two nearby females. Their territorial behaviors give Grouse symbolic ties to assertiveness and boundary setting.
Some sensitives suggest the Grouse Spirit Animal speaks to you about your power in controlling your life, your vision, and your quest for greater wisdom. While Grouse remains grounded in common sense, it doesn’t mean you can’t reach toward higher ways of thinking and behaving. Listen to the drumming of your heart and soul. Follow it in the direction it takes you.
DAILY ORACLE CARD
V. FIVE OF WANDS
From the image on the card, the symbolism in the Five of Wands suggests that there is form of conflict in one’s life. This may be an existing conflict or one that is brewing and may eventually blow up in one’s face. It may also depict a problem in communication, for example in a situation where no one really wants to listen to the other – meaning that no agreement or understanding takes place. The five men may signify problems in a group of people who are not patient enough to listen to what anyone else is saying. They only want to be heard, and since none of the others will listen, they all argue at once.
Much of this can be solved by the querent taking the first step to try and initiate communication in such a way that you suggest that everyone airs out what they have to say, one at a time. By doing this, you will be able to address the problem, and everyone will be heard. Meaning they’ll all be satisfied.
The Five of Wands can also mean that you are or will be facing competition in an area that you are not used to. This can be at work or school where you will meet people with the same abilities as you who pose quite a challenge – leading to feelings of jealousy, greed, and envy. This tarot card encourages that you accept the competition as a way for you to improve yourself without feeling any malice towards them. This means that you should learn how to cope with them in a civil way.

You will need to identify where the problems are and offer a solution that will handle the case.
