Spirit Animal Reading

©Fiechter & Trösch
This morning, I once again drew a line of three from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004) to define a spiritual focus for the day.

Garden, Anchor and Spirit Animals: working in community with my spirit animals.

So, I decided to pull out a card from the Gaian Tarot (Joanna Powell-Colbert, 2010) which beautifully represents the squirrel, my animal guide.  And then I felt drawn to pull another card at random, to represent something Squirrel could help me with, and got the Six of Earth.

Sitting, I sank into meditation.  First, I saw Squirrel running around in the spring sunshine, gathering new food.  He still had a store from winter, though, and so he would swap out something from the store for something freshly gathered - very organised!  A reminder that I have some tasks that have been waiting on the back burner and need attending to, before I move on to new projects.  Not my favourite tasks, but things that do need doing - okay, okay, I get the message!

Then I saw Squirrel running with other squirrels, springing from branch to branch, across trees.  Squirrel's community is important to him, and he shares with it, rather than simply hoarding and ignoring all others.  He knows that a group can help one another.  I feel called to share what I have gathered, to teach and be more part of my community.  Time, then, to make that a reality :)

  1. Wonderful post, Kerry! I recently received the Mystical Lenormand and I'm looking forward to using it. I think maybe I'll try something like this! Thank you for sharing your experience.

    1. Thanks, Zanna :) I've had this deck for nearly two years now, and I think it's my favourite Lenormand! Some people don't like it because there's extra symbolism on the cards, but that doesn't bother me. I still go with my keywords almost exclusively, but I'm a sucker for pretty pictures ;) Hope you enjoy it, too :D

      P.S. The Animal Guides card is an extra, one of four. They don't come with the regular deck, and in fact I only received my copy this week, having had them on order for a couple of months, though the card backs say ©2008. If you're interested in the other extra cards, I posted a GT with them yesterday...
