The current discussion besides raising my blood pressure was sucking all the joy out of my day. The squirrel appeared to remind me to have fun and play. Shortly, after spotting him, I ran, which helped considerably. The furry friend also reminded me to let go of some of my stress, worries, and trivial matters. In retrospect, I’ve survived several elections with no noticeable change in my life.
An animal messenger can be read like a Tarot card too, there is more than one meaning. The play and don’t worry sentiments felt like a pertinent message for me, but the other is to prepare. I might need to ready myself for big changes ahead. Instead of gathering nuts, I need to organize, prioritize projects, and time schedule.
Squirrels are survivors. They can surmount obstacles, climb higher, make rapid changes in direction and navigate tricky areas. The squirrel is a great power animal to have in you think you’ve hit a wall. (I hear you, squirrel.) What does a squirrel do when it comes to a wall? It goes up.
Seasons determine a squirrel’s behavior. Right now, a squirrel is collecting what it needs to survive the winter. Ever wonder if a squirrel finds everything it hides. It doesn’t. Sometimes, other opportunistic animals find the bounty. Occasionally, humans might uncover the treasure and move it. For this reason, a squirrel has to overstock, which explains their current high level of activity.
Squirrels are one of the few wild animals that trust humans. I used to have a squirrel that lived in a hole in one of the front porch supports. The furry friend would eat peanuts out of my hand. The squirrel could be a reminder for me to trust more. Trust in myself, other people, even in the future.
