Skunk teaches us about respect, and anyone who has ever had the pleasure of being sprayed (or having a wonder dog who did) knows exactly what this means. This beautiful little creature also teaches us about boundaries.
Coyote comes to us when we are going through powerful times of death and rebirth to tell us bawdy jokes and keep our spirits up. The Blackfoot People teach us Coyote is a bringer of women's medicine which is based in our intuition, emotions and our words.
This week is a Snake Medicine week in the year of the Great Mother Bear who reminds us that this entire year is a time of introspection and healing. Snake reminds us that winter is a great time to hibernate and focus on regeneration after we have experienced a period of trauma and/or Spiritual growth. We're also talking about Turkey (Gratitude) Buffalo (Stamina, Prayer) Coyote (humor during the time of awakening) and cards from other traditions.
In the Bird Clan, Eagle is the keeper of the Northern Door of the Medicine Wheel - the White House which represents Spirit. And this is where the Grandfathers live.

We've hit the bottom of the V, the place of transformation for those who continue to cling to the old matrix illusion. People are slowly awakening thanks to the internet - the tool they had originally intended to use to degrade and enslave us.
And for many people, there is great danger at this time of becoming lazy and apathetic. We are seeing the restrictions by powerful entities and feel helpless to do anything about it. Our jobs and businesses are closed and we’re feeling scared about the future. Cut off from hope and our sense of self reliance. This is the point at which we need hummingbird medicine.
Grandmother Spider reminds us of the wisdom of our Elders and shows us the path to bring the spark of light back into our lives after failure and she she teaches us how to disentangle ourselves from the old ways and begin to spin and weave a new way of being.
Ceremony helps us learn the power of focusing on our own healing before anything else, for if our cups are not full, then we will have nothing to share with others.
