I keep a deck of Medicine Cards – all about animals – on my bedside table. Used to draw one every day, now draw a new one every now and then. Fox had been around for a long time, and as I walked by the other day, saw that the crystal on top had moved – so I put Fox back in the deck, shuffled a little, and drew another card. Fox again!
So I decided to re-read the spiritual descriptions of fox ‘medicine’ in the Medicine Cards book and in Animal Speak. Last time I read Fox in the Medicine Cards, what drew me were the words about taking care of family. This time, Camouflage leaped off the page. In Animal Speak, the keynote is Feminine magic of camouflage, shapeshifting and invisibility. What Ted call the cycle of power is nocturnal, dawn and dusk.
Have you ever tried, at a party, just pulling your energy back into yourself? A great way to watch what’s going on, and see what’s up with everyone else. Then when you consciously release your energy again, folk will say ‘When did you get here?’ and ‘I didn’t see you come in.’ It’s always fun to do that, relaxing and invigorating as well.
And being invisible occasionally right now will effectively give me more time. Which seems like a great idea, as I’m working to finish a book. So if you don’t see me for a bit, I may be home working at the computer. Or I may be standing right beside you at that party, just camouflaged.
