Master Fox Animal Medicine to see the big picture, embrace wildness, and restore faith in yourself.
Foxes are stealthy, focused, and cunning. They are wild and magical, as well as tricky and wise. Often foxes are portrayed as mischievous, thieving, and deceptive—perhaps because they are so destructive to smaller livestock, tend to move around a lot without ever being seen, and have those sharp, observant faces. They, along with their sister coyotes and crows, are the tricksters of the animal world.
Curious what you can learn from the Fox?
The Fox's trickster wisdom is profound wisdom. It can be confusing, paradoxical, and seemingly oppositional. It is wisdom only gained once we are far enough away to see the whole picture. It requires distance, time, and a conscious effort to see the whole truth. Trickster wisdom helps us to see that things are not always as they first seem. It's important to remember that even if you don't seem to be "winning" now, the story is far from over. Fox Animal medicine teaches us to continue to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and keep moving forward. You've still got this, you know?
In a tricky situation use your creative mind to explore unexpected solutions. Turn things on their head. Embrace a wild approach—especially if you're looking to restore some balance in your life when things have become too calm or domesticated.
Fox will be there for you during times when you feel you've been duped by life. Those times when you want to wallow in self pity or resentment. Yet the Fox coaxes us to tune into our wild selves, shake it off and own up to your imperfections. Afterall, we are all imperfect.
