Predictions From Our Animal Spirit Guide

What Animal Totem Influences Us Now?

by Danielle

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


SQUIRREL – Activity, Preparedness, Gathering, Foresight, Inner Fire, Shaman

The squirrel medicine is about preparing for change. When you observe the squirrel in nature they are always busy. They seem to have an endless supply of energy. Focused on the task at hand, agile and quick, they are constantly preparing for the future by gathering nuts and seeds for later use. Although they are always prepared for what may come, they have a tendency to forget where they store things. The forgetfulness of squirrel serves as a reminder to those with this medicine to slow down, pay attention and to stop running frantically in several directions at once.

Squirrel makes a good spirit guide for the month of November – he's very busy gathering, preparing for winter and settling the family into a safe nest at this time of year! Good advice for all of us!

Squirrel embodies the quality of trust and is one of the few animals that will eat out of a person's hand. This symbolizes a need to let down your defenses and learn to trust more. The issue of trust can play out in all areas of a person's life from personal intimacy to trusting Great Spirit. Because the squirrel is always prepared, those with this medicine must remember that they will be taken care of. Establishing trust where it is presently absent would complement the power of this medicine.

Squirrel represents balance within the circle of gathering and giving out. If squirrel has scampered into your life pay attention to the wisdom it has to offer you. Preparedness and survival skills can be learned from this powerful totem.

Squirrel stores for the future because it knows what is coming…She understands the cycles of the year – great medicine for humans. Squirrel is like a coiled spring, full of latent acrobatic energy. Surefooted, she leaps from tree to tree –  even sitting still, the swishing of her tail reveals her inner fire. Squirrel runs up and down the tree trunk, an important part of its medicine… the tree represents the Tree of Life… its roots are the lower world, the realm of spirit animals and strong healing earth energies. Its trunk is the middle world, inhabited by humans and its crown is the realm of gods and spirit teachers. Squirrel, in its travels between spirit and human realms, represents the shaman… the purpose of this vertical journey is to bring messages and power from the realms of spirit so that we can learn to live in harmony and balance.

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

Squirrels teach us balance within the cycle of gathering and giving out. Squirrels are the masters of preparing, but they are also reminders that in our quest for our goals, we must make time to socialize and play. Squirrel reminds us to honour our future by readying ourselves for change…. it may be time to lighten our load… to notice that we have gathered more than we will need…at the same time, squirrel reminds us to set a little aside, to make sure you have properly prepared for the next season.
Squirrel often forgets where he has hidden his supplies – he reminds us to be more noticing of our actions – to remember where we put things – in other words, to get organized…
With squirrel's appearance, you are asked to examine your own activity and preparedness. Are you too active, or not active enough? Are you not planning ahead, becoming too erratic, running around but not accomplishing anything? Are you gathering and not giving? Are you afraid you will never have enough? Do you need to learn to save, or are you getting too hung up on collecting and accumulating?
Squirrel tells you to take a good look at your activities, to be sure you are not wasting your energy. This is the right time to stand back and make a good plan.
