Trickster- Magician- Master of Fun and the things that sometimes just don't work out, ala Wile E. Coyote, foil of Road Runner.
Coyote- Divine fun and games
In honor of Jamie Sams, co-author and creator of "The Medicine Cards", a oracle using animal images and symbolism for spritual and personal development. She passed away in late 2020. On Coyote:
"Coyote has many magical powers, but they do not alwasy work in his favor...He is the master trickster who tricks himself."

We find a lot of synchronicities among ancient lore around the world about the bear. Key: symbol- “Awakening the Power of the Unconscious”; it’s cycle of power is during the spring and the summer. Two constellations are named for it- Ursa Major (Great Bear) and Ursa Minor (Small Bear); 7 of the 9 stars in the Great Bear’s tail are one of the most recognizable structures in our nighttime panorama of stars- the Big Dipper, or Bei Dou in the Chinese language. Bei Dou is a sacred constellation and the home of Dou Mu (the Dipper Mother), a female Immortal whose sons are each of those seven stars.
Lunar symbology: associated with Diana, goddess of the moon and it is also associated with the nigredo of prime matter (color black) related to all initial stages and primal instincts.
“During it’s winter sleep, the black bear’s kidneys shut down completely, and scientists are studying this activity, hoping it will provide clues to more successful kidney transplants.” Could inducing a state of hibernation in people with kidney issues help them with time and regenerating rest to heal? Kidneys in metaphysical terms are associated with the qualities of discernment, discrimination- judgement, so “bear medicine” could be learning to go deep within to the core of your being to understand the truths you hold there. Who are you at your core, why did you come here, with whom do you belong to fulfill the remainder of your destiny?

January - Crow
To kick off this new feature of my page, I thought I would honor the crow. I am currently trying to make friends with a family of crows who have decided to visit my backyard.
