As we learn from our Native relatives, it is often the ones who are shunned, ridiculed, and attacked by bullies who have the most powerful medicine to offer. For this is the power of the Scapegoat energy – which drives us away from the collective into the wilderness where we connect with the Great Spirit and learn to call on our helpers and become the creatures we were meant to be in this life.
This week, Snake is reminding us about the primordial power of the Divine Feminine energy of regeneration – the need for hibernation, review, looking at our perception, habits and healing plans. Joining Snake – in this 2nd week of Hawk month in the year of the Great Mother Bear are Turkey,
Snake reminds us that walking the Sacred Hoop is a very long, circular process in which we walk through each house of the Medicine Wheel many times each day. We have the choice about how long we stay in each house, and the quality of our experience while we are visiting.

It is so important during these times that we know the wisdom and teachings of our Ancestors, for even though we have arrived with much clearer knowledge of our mission than many others, we are dependent on the Elders of all Nations to show us the pathways our people have walked, and to teach us the wisdom and medicine – the Old Ways – to help us clean up and restore our Mother Earth and our communities.
This is a week in which Deer has come with her medicine of kindness, compassion, gentleness of spirit and unconditional love – which are greatly needed at this time.

“One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you don’t talk to the Animals, they won’t talk back to you. Then you won’t understand, and when you don’t understand you will fear, and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.” – Chief Dan George
