by Danielle

What messages or predictions will come up from joyful, playful Otter, this period's animal spirit guide? (Drawn from our Medicine Cards ) Drop me a note and let me know how these insights work for you.

Female Medicine, Joy, Playfulness, Sharing, Go With the Flow

Otter is an especially appropriate Totem animal spirit guide as Mother's Day approaches. Otter represents balanced female energy. At home in both the female elements of Earth and Water, Otter is the personification of femininity, long, sleek and graceful. While Otter lives on land, it is always near water and is as at home in the water as it is on land. Their connection to the water links Otter to the primal female energies of life – especially the pleasurable aspects of the feminine – creation, imagination, joy and love of the young.

Otter reminds us to keep the inner child alive… she reminds us that life can be fun if we approach it with the right attitude.

Otter is the true coquette of the animal world. Whether a sea otter or the river otter, there is a natural, joyful curiosity about them… Otters awaken curiosity, they remind us that everything is interesting if we look at it from the right angle. Otter will play for hours, and tells us that play and laughter are strong medicines which sustain us when life gets difficult.

This joyful little creature is adventurous and assumes that all other creatures are friendly… until proven otherwise… Otter balances two important female realms, on the one side, equanimity and grace, on the other, a striking fierceness…. They may not attack, but if attacked, they will respond with savage resistance.

Otter reminds us to create a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions. Otter teaches us that balanced female energy is not catty or jealous… It reminds us of the sisterhood, to be content to enjoy and share the good fortune of others. Otter expresses joy for others…. it represents the freeness of love without jealousy.

She teaches her young to live their lives with an adventurous spirit, propelled by curiosity, daring to explore the world. Otter teaches us the great power in trusting and can inspire us to feel that we can handle whatever life throws at us… and that others are not a threat but equal companions with whom we can share life…

Otter tells us to become like the playful child, and to simply allow life to unfold naturally, as it will… She tells us to stop worrying… and she reminds us to let go of those material things that can become a burden…

Otter tells us to move gently through the river of life… flow with the waters of the Universe… tap into the receptive power of the female energy..

Otter tells us a little of what we might expect in this period:

Otter tells us to keep the inner child alive in this period – she tells us that it is time to make time for play – but she may also be asking if we have been too playful, avoiding our responsibilities…
Our children may need some special attention at this time, a time when we will be encouraged to draw on our maternal instincts. Otter is very caring of its young and sometimes shows up to help awaken our primal mothering energies and responsibilities. It can indicate a need to set up your boundaries within the home and define your role more clearly… and Otter especially reminds us to get down on the floor and play with our children.
You are urged to treat yourself to something special… this month could bring some fun… and awaken a new sense of wonder at life and all things within it.
