According to some ancient peoples, the fox is a solar emblem that symbolises passion, desire, intensity, protection and creative expression. The fox encourages us to ‘think outside of the box’ and use our intelligence in different, creative ways. The fox also brings us a message to try to approach our circumstances differently and see ‘all there is to see’. The fox also a reminder that we must utilize all of our resources (seen and unseen) in order to accomplish our goals. Sometimes this means calling upon our inner knowledge and wisdom. Some say the fox also symbolizes longevity and protection from evil
The Hare is associated with a number of myths from many different cultures. The Algonquin tribe honored the Great Hare as a demiurge, a role in the creation of the world. The Egyptians also saw the hare involved in a creation story. For them, the hare came to mean procreation, and then immorality. The hare is more solitary and tougher than the rabbit. Hares don’t live in warrens or have maternity nests. The young hares are born so well-developed that they can fend for themselves within a few hours of their birth. Hare people are considered sensitive and artistic, and also linked with ambition, fitness, and virtue. The Hare is one of the oldest totem animals of Britain and is linked to the Moon and the powers of the Moon
Native American Indians saw the Eagle as a symbol for great strength, leadership and vision. The eagle was thought to be chief over all the winged creatures, one who brought messages of spirit and the divine source because it flies higher than any other creature on Earth. The eagle is also symbolic of the importance of honesty and truthful principles. Eagle people are said to be visionaries, or those who are seekers and push the limits of self-discovery and personal freedom. An eagle person is often a born leader and may become impatient with those who cannot fly as high or as fast.
Eagle is also linked with courage and the need to give up limited perspectives and thought patterns. To many indigenous people the Eagle is the bringer of a higher vision, one that aids in our ability to see ‘all that there is to see’. Some Native American and Celtic shamans were said to have been able to shapeshift into eagles and their feathers were considered an emblem of the Sun and the Stars
The Earth Lion and Golden Lion represent a higher consciousness that collectively link humanity and the Earth to it’s real spiritual power. The Earth Lion is a symbol of ‘revolution’, ‘truth’ and the ‘power of the Sun’. The Golden lion is a symbol of a ‘higher consciousness’, an emblem of the ‘golden world’ that awaits humanity. Lion people can be leaders, inventors, teachers and mavericks in their own unique way. Lion symbolism represents both physical and ‘spiritual authority’ hence why we see the lion image on stately homes, insignias and crests all over the world.
