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.
"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
