For the past year or so, I have felt a draw to fox – maybe even longer. fox energy has come to me in meditation, in person, in art, and in pop culture. as I looked into fox as totem/spirit medicine, here’s what I found fox can be about…
-swiftly finding a path around obstacles
-quick thinking, problem solving
-physical & mental responsiveness
-cunning, discerning, seeing through deception, seeing what is not obvious
-affinity with nocturnal activities and dream work
-independence and strength in being alone, but also partnering for life and being very loyal
“The Fox spirit is the grand problem solver. She will guide you to solitude and silence until the way out is shown. A healthy combination of persistence and patience will strike a balance that picks apart a problem until it is solved.”
If Fox is your totem:
You are intensely loyal. Often you are a joy to watch or to be around. You are energetic, outgoing, personable, and very flattering. While not exactly social butterflies fox people can use that sly energy, their keen sense of camouflage to “fit right in”. You are also a keen observer and skilled at remaining unnoticed. This means that you blend into your environment and move around unnoticed in any kind of company or society.
You adapt and portray yourself as whoever you need to be in a given interaction. This affinity for fitting in often means you are a jack of all trades, taking interest and educating yourself superficially in great number of areas while mastering none. This allows you to chat or small talk with ease whenever you care to. This does not mean you are disingenuous. It simply means that you really do care and take an active interest in the feelings of those around you.
You are also a very creative problem solver and can seem eccentric because they are quick to think outside the box. Quick thinking or wit is definitely common tool for you.
