If you can imagine Bambi, you can imagine the message Deer brings to you today - a message of sweetness, innocence, and gentle spirit. Be delicate today in your communication with other and with yourself. This is definitely not a time for being critical, mean-spirited, or sarcastic. Just as Deer's heart can be easily wounded, so can the heart of your friends, co-workers, or family members.
East: This animal reveals the direction you need to take in order to gain clarity about your present situation.
You've heard the expression "playing possum"? It means to play dead and is derived from Opossum's ability to act in whatever way the situation demands. If it's practical to play dead, so be it; if it's to Opossum's advantage to be aggressive, watch out! Take your cue from this master actor today - and play the role that will serve you best.
South: This animal explores issues dealing with your inner child, and shows the energy needed to trust your own process.
When Horse came back to the Americas, he brought with him the ability to move rapidly from place to place - and it's this rapid movement that he brings to you today. Get up, get out of the rut you've created. Grab Horse's mane, pull yourself onto his back and let him carry you across the plains of your life. The time for being stuck is over.
West: The animal that appears in the West holds the answer to your present challenge.
Ant is dutiful, patient, industrious and focused. If you ever put an obstacle in the middle of an ant trail, you'll notice that ant will go over it, around it, or even under it - but ant will NOT let the obstacle drive him backwards. Above all, ant is a team player, and knows that if each member of the team does his assigned task, the team will succeed. Do you have goals that are best met by team effort? If so, get the other players off the bench and let them into your game.
