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.
Ultimately – this week, Coyote is here to remind us about the power of natural law – cause and effect. In the house of Spirit with the Grandfathers this week, he teaches us about the power of our spiritual connections and our sacred responsibilities to our Ancestors and bloodlines.
Turnabout is fair play in love and war they say. And that is exactly what we're seeing in the Spiritual community, on the geopolitical stage - and for those of us on a healing journey, in ourselves as well. It is no coincidence that this week's totem from the Medicine Card deck is Coyote - the very week we're marching toward April Fool's Day.
Swan’s journey to the heavens shows us the path of true Spiritual Awakening and the choices each of us must make as we ascend higher on the path. And this path comes with many questions.
OtterMedicine - Happy Friday frens! It's #KitchenParty day on #BirdClanMessenger!

Otter has come this week to teach us about the power of Women’s Medicine, about the powerful change, the alchemy and magic that happen when women come together in the spirit of sisterhood.
This week, Skunk is sitting in the Northern house of Spirit where the Grandfathers live, and she is joined by Moose in the East (mind), Mouse in the South (body) and Squirrel in the West (emotion).
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 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.
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.
