Ode to Fox

As Winter Solstice approaches, I have been thinking about what I would like to meditate on during my all night vigil. It promises to be an exciting night as Moon will be full a little after midnight in this part of the world whilst the precise time of the Solstice is scheduled to peak at 6.38pm on December 21st.

Part of my preparation is to reflect upon my animal teachers and where better than to start than in the East... According to Medicine Cards by Sams & Carson... "the animal in the East guides you to your greatest spiritual challenge and guards your path to illumination".

Fox is my animal guide in the East and has many lessons to teach me... Many aspects of Fox relate to the magic of camouflage, shape shifting and her ability to blend into one's surroundings both physically and metamorphically.

Fox is crafty, quick to adapt, decisive, and is a keen observer with an uncanny skill of sizing up people... undetected. Fox instincts rank high and so does her ability to survive. When she travels she is smart on her feet and has powerful travel protection. She can tolerate long periods of solitude but when the time is right... she is a great protectress of the family unit, working to keep them safe at all times. Foxes are charming creatures !

Here is a collection of fox images and Etsy products inspired by Fox...

I was delighted to spend hours looking at fox inspired handcrafts... i just love all these earth toned colors... the ambers, golden oranges, rust browns & reds and of course, if I could i would love to purchase every single one of these marvelous items. Do visit the Treasury and from there, one can click on any of the items to visit the individual's shop.

My personal favorites are Urbanimal's The Golden Fox, EtherealArt's Medicine Woman's Vision and Karen Davis' Francis on the Hill. I'm also very pleased with this Smiling Fox Silk Tapestry Box: an original & unique Brizel handcrafts item...
