DAILY SPIRIT ANIMAL
FOX SPIRIT | STAY SHARP AND USE COMMON SENSE WISELY

Fox’s symbolism and meaning include cleverness, independence, playfulness and mischievousness, beauty, protection, and good luck. Foxes inhabit every continent on Earth except Antarctica, so they appear in the mythologies and folklore of many cultures. In addition, the fox spirit animal is a special guide for those who feel a kinship with these beautiful creatures. In this post, you’ll learn about fox symbols and meanings, the fox spirit animal, fox mythology, and more.

In both ancient and modern times, the fox is a symbol of cleverness. To describe someone as “clever as a fox” is a tribute to a quick and sharp intellect.

Undoubtedly, one of the reasons that the fox is described as clever is their uncanny ability to evade hunters. Thus, in a tragic paradox, it’s the fox’s gift of intelligence that has made them a target to hunters.

The idea of a pack of bloodthirsty hunting dogs and multiple humans on horseback with guns chasing one fox is so abhorrent that you want to believe it’s untrue. However, even though fox hunting was banned in the UK in 2003, it’s still done illegally to this day.

But who would take part in such a blood sport? The answer is people with undeveloped souls. One of the marks of an undeveloped soul is fear that manifests in anger and hate. This fear and hate come from a disconnection from Source – God or the Higher Power.

As we become more enlightened, we move closer to God, and we understood more that all life is connected. We also become more compassionate and empathetic because we are more aware – we can sense others’ suffering. 

So, those who see the cleverness of the fox as one of nature’s miracles exist in a higher state of consciousness than those who brutalize them.

When the fox is your spirit animal, you are a person who can rely on your wit and instincts, even when the deck is stacked against you. You are blessed with a sharp intellect that you can use to your advantage to outwit hate, negativity, and challenges. The world is full of fools who may try to terrorize you because of your beauty and cunning, but every time, you will prevail.

While foxes are members of the canine family, or Canidae, along with dogs, wolves, and coyotes, they are more solitary than their canine cousins. Unlike wolves and coyotes, who prefer to travel in packs, foxes opt to hunt independently.

However, foxes are not completely solitary creatures. They will stay with and care for their mates when the two raise their pups. And the male fox will leave the den to hunt and bring back food for his vixen as she nurses their young.

Young foxes will stay with their families until they can hunt on their own, and then they set out to do their own thing.

Foxes will play together and groom each other, and some will even have communal dens. But overall, they enjoy their independence.

The fox spirit animal reminds you to maintain your autonomy. Even though you adore your romantic partner, your family, your kids, and close friends, it’s important to have a strong sense of self and to make sure you always nourish yourself, even when you’re a caregiver.

When you take a plane flight, and the flight attendant goes over the safety precautions for the flight, they always tell you to put on your own oxygen mask first because if you pass out, you can’t help anyone else. This analogy describes the sentiments of the fox spirit animal. It’s vital that you learn to care for yourself. Then, you can be more present in your relationships. This doesn’t mean self-centeredness or narcissism; it means a healthy practice of self-care.

Foxes generally only use dens to have their pups, but otherwise, they choose to live outside, even sleeping out in the open.

If a fox makes themselves known to you, whether in real life, the media, or art, it can be a sign that it’s time for you to leave the warm den of your comfort zone. Self-protection and nourishment are vitally important, but there is also a time to break out and take some risks. The fox is definitely not a comfort junky!

Foxes have a well-earned reputation for being playful and mischievous. In a way, they are like a cross between a dog and a cat because they love to play chase and pounce.


DAILY ORACLE CARD
THE HANGED MAN


The hanged man understands that his position is a sacrifice that he needed to make in order to progress forward – whether as repentance for past wrongdoings or a calculated step backward to recalculate his path onward. This time he spends here will not be wasted, he does this as part of his progression forward. His upside-down state can also symbolize the feeling of those that walk a spiritual path, for they see the world differently. Where there are others that do not understand the need to sacrifice, you see it differently. This is a natural course of action for you as you walk the path alone.

The Hanged Man card reflects a particular need to suspend certain actions. As a result, this might indicate a certain period of indecision. This means that certain actions or decisions which need to be properly implemented are likely to be postponed even if there is an urgency to act at this particular moment. In fact, it would be ultimately best if you are capable of stalling certain actions in order to ensure that you have more time to reflect on making critical decisions, this will ultimately be the best.

The Hanged Man card reflects a particular need to suspend certain action. As a result, this might indicate a certain period of indecision.

This is a card that is mainly designated for waiting and suspension. This suggests that this might be the thing that you need to do in order to achieve success or to wait for the proper opportunity. Keep in mind that taking action is not always the best solution and in certain cases refraining from doing so might bring you just as much if not more benefits.


APRIL 2023 LUNAR CALENDAR

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 5: FULL MOON IN LIBRA (FULL PINK MOON)

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.

The name “Pink Moon” has long been associated with April’s full Moon as flowers begin to bloom, particularly moss pink or creeping ground phlox, which is one of the earliest and most widespread spring flowers. Creeping ground phlox thrives in sandy or rocky soils, and is often used as a ground cover. This perennial bloom is most often pink but also has shades of purple and white. It is popular with butterflies, another welcome sign of spring in April.

In Asia, particularly China, this Moon is called the “Peony Moon” as it is the season when those native flowers flourish. Blush pink is the most common color for peonies, but they are also found in cream and white shades, as well as richer shades of pink – perfect as another name for the “Pink Moon.”

THURSDAY, APRIL 13: LAST QUARTER MOON IN CAPRICORN

You might have a strong need for being useful to the society and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.

THURSDAY, APRIL 20: NEW MOON IN TAURUS

The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.

THURSDAY, APRIL 27: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN LEO

You feel safe in moments when you can impress others and get praise and admiration. Yet, when you get into the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. It is very important to accept feedback and use it for improvement.
