Animal Spirit - Fox

When asked to describe the characteristics of the Fox, many will begin with words such as cunning, clever, and sneaky. Known for their graceful hunting and survival abilities, the fox has an acute sense of hearing and smelling. She’s also able to blend in with her surroundings.

As an animal spirit, the fox reveals the message of being patient, watchful, and instinctive when approaching a problem. There may be a need to sit back and study the situation, to understand its true nature before making an approach. Caution and observation are needed. You may also find yourself needing to adapt and blend in to make it all work out.

My first visit from the fox came last year. She stood under a moonlit shadow of a tree in my yard. I’ve seen her twice more in my yard, and once she crossed the street in front of me as I drove home. These occurrences have happened with long periods in between, and each time I had been mulling something over in my mind. Obviously this fox lives within my neighborhood, so is it a message, or just random sightings?

I began putting this post together on Monday night. Guess who darted out in front of me on my way to work Tuesday morning? This fox is obviously trying to get my attention, and ensure I receive the message she brings.


Lily Therese“Fox’s message and medicine is to playfully pursue your goals and objectives.”

Spirit-Animals“If Fox has made her appearance in your life, the solution to a problem is at hand.” 

Spirit Animal“When the fox appears in your life, it may indicate that you need to pay attention to people or circumstances that may be deceiving or tricking you into going down a path that does not necessarily serve you. This spirit animal may call you to be more discerning in relationships, whether it’s in business or friendships, or in choices you make for yourself.”

You are one lucky woman, to have seen a fox in real life. And not only once, but several times.
And what a coincidence you've seen her just after you've started writing about her. I just love it when things like that happen :)

I took photos of a little guy at my back door, trying to go through my garbage. He was small, lean, and red. Didn't care that I was snapping his picture. Quite a strange and wonderful feeling to be that close.

Ellen - each time was amazing and left me stunned. The last one left me a little shaken though. When I say darted out in front of me, I do mean literally. If I hadn't been paying attention, I very well might have hit her.

Joylene, They are beautiful creatures. Tuesday morning was the first time I really got to see her red coat, gorgeous. The other sightings were in dusky dark to Dark, only visible by her shape.
