Animal Medicine Monday – Otter

otter-441962_1280

We are now in the month of the earth astrology totem of otter, with Aquarius being the complimentary sun sign.  Otter helps us to cleanse and purify our sacred waters, that is, all emotional states, blood, and lymphatic systems of humans.  They teach us how to play in our child shield (our inner little girl for women and inner little boy for men) and give with our heart.  The otter also protects men as they learn to deal with the energy of women’s moon cycles.

If you want to experience the joy of moving through frozen waters, even when frozen, check out the first few minutes of this PBS America show on the Otters of Yellowstone, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_c_JOtZu4Q

Animal Medicine Monday – Raccoon

 

raccoon_1280Raccoons are considered the masked heyoehkah, or sacred clown.  As they gather, they teach us to collect only that which is necessary.  They also teach us to horde, save and steal.  Raccoon is the teacher of jealously and possessiveness.  Because it is nocturnal, it is a shadow exposer.

Animal Medicine Monday – Thunderbird

The bringer of thunder, lightning and rain; awakener of the voice of our Hokkshideh (our Higher Self); keeper of memory. The thunderbird is the over-soul of all winged ones and thus is able to communicate with all the winged ones. It teaches mastery of elemental alchemy. The thunderbird is the mythological equivalent to the phoenix, the dragon, the peyote waterbird and is a cousin to the roadrunner.
