Transformation and Animal Guides
With the activation and energy of this Equinox we are being asked and invited to commit to personal transformation. We can make or recommit to this choice now. We are ever evolving and there is always something new to discover, learn, experience, or do.
Transformation and change can lead to beautiful experiences, though the experience of transformation and change does not always feel beautiful. Sometimes it is neccessary to go through discomfort to breakthrough into living your most beautiful expression of your life. We are in a time of mass ascension. Are you willing to commit?
If you consciously make the choice to commit to your personal alchemical transformation, know that you are fiercely guided and protected. “You are being alchemically activated by the sacred elders, the wisdom keepers, [your ancestors, your Higher Power]… as you embark on a journey to reclaim your true self.”
Hathor, Nekhbet-Mother-Mut, and your personal guides are convening to help you in all ways. They are “weaving and blending the ingredients required to prepare the way for you”. It is already done, it is your participation and willingness to experience life that is needed. As you act, the Universe and your guides respond to meet you with your highest good. Physically clearing, cleaning and organising your space is a good place to start to welcome change and new energy.
Be on the lookout for a teacher or spirit guide to come to you or make theirself known to you, or for a deepening of an already existing teacher/guide connection, making even greater awareness, understanding and transformation possible.
This teacher can be a human, a spirit guide, animal guide, nature guide, or any form of teacher. Both Hathor and Nekhbet-Mother-Mut speak of alchemy and transformation, and of teachers or allies or animal guides coming to help us in our transformation.
“Watch for the magic so you can engage with it fully.” To add to the magic and synchronicity, I had already intended to do a pick a card reading using Animal Medicine Cards before I did a collective reading. If you are interested, I’ve included a pick a card reading for you to find out what animal spirit guides are helping you with your transformation during this autumn/spring season, and more about what that transformation is.
There will be two cards for each selection. If you like the animal you chose but you don’t resonate with the message that comes along with it, you can also do your own research or meditation about your animal guide and see what information you receive. You can also do this for additional insight anway if you like. Or you can combine what you like from all three messages. Use your own discernment, follow your intuition, and enjoy what resonates with you. The options are below. There is an option to choose with and without crystals.
What Animal Guides Are Helping Me With Transformation During This Autumn/Spring Season
Turtle & Wild Boar
Turtle and Wild Boar are coming to you to help you be grounded and connected with Mother Earth energy so that you can confront any issues you may have been dealing with or avoiding.
When we avoid problems and live in denial, we can become disconnected and/or confrontational. Unwillingness to deal with one aspect of our lives can throw all other areas of our life and wellbeing out of balance too.
You are being asked to be fully present with and have compassion for yourself and your situation. It’s important to nurture yourself into transformation rather than force and bully yourself, or take things out on others. You may be learning to set boundaries and stand up for yourself. “Use the water and earth energies, which represent Turtle’s two homes, to flow harmoniously with your situation and to place your feet firmly on the ground in a power stance.”
What is causing you discomfort? Is it your own behavior or that of another? Something you did or haven’t yet done? Wild Boar is “insisting that you be fully present and mindful of what is happening and why… Challenges do not simply vanish.”
Be completely honest with yourself. Be honest about where you may have been dishonest. “Unless you actively embrace your issues, you cannot reclaim your spirit’s energy. Half the battle is won through the warrior’s willingness to acknowledge and accept the whole truth at all times.”
Start with embracing the truth before taking action on it or trying to make it different. So much space opens up within when you can look and allow. Often just the act of accepting a perceived flaw facilitates change.
As this is guidance for the whole season, you may be spending the next few months accepting or exploring a truth, and as a result making changes to create harmony in your life. Remember the courage of Boar to confront anything, and the loving energy and assistance of Mother Earth, through Turtle, that is available to help you with what you are confronting. If it resonates with you, you can work with a specific goddess.
Antelope & Snake
Antelope speaks of action. Snake speaks of transmutation. If these are your cards, you have a special medicine. You are highly spiritual and naturally take healing to deeper depths. Surface level isn’t enough for you so you might see beyond what is initially presented or said.
If you identify as a healer, you might notice that you don’t always connect with or have success with what other people are teaching. This is because you have a different perspective and you are meant to do or create something that resonates with you completely. You could either channel a new process or recreate an existing process to be more reachable. Maybe you are helping to make an existing idea or practice more widely known and understood. You are meant to find your own way because you know how. You may or may not eventually share this with others, what’s important is that you connect with something meaningful to your soul.
If you don’t identify as a healer, you are still a healer to this planet through the life that you live. Even if you have done or experienced wrong and now are trying to change, that is healing. Being willing to go through transmutation is no small thing. “Snake medicine people are very rare. Their initiation involves experiencing multiple snake bites, which allows them to transmute all poisons, be they mental, physical, spiritual, or emotional… This medicine teaches you on a personal level that you are a universal being.” Your journey is important to us all.
Antelope says “you have no need to be fearful if you know what to do and then you do it… Antelope knows the way, and so do you… the time is now. The power is you.”
Over the next few months you could feel a need or desire to transmute something in your life. Do it. Take action on what you know you need to do. If you feel called to a healing practice, pursue it. You can call on Antelope medicine to help you take right action and Snake medicine to help you transmute and navigate consciousness.
Hawk & Ant
Hawk and Ant come to you to help you be aware of the messages you receive and to have patience in receiving messages and letting the guidance play out.
The Universe and your spirit guides are always communicating with you, sending you messages, signs and symbols. Are you aware and listening? Are you asking?
It is likely that over the course of the next few months you will be receiving alot of communication from Spirit. Or you may have received guidance and it’s important for you to practice patience and trust over the next few months. “You will always receive that which you need, at the time you need it most.” This is something you can come to believe in if you don’t already.
Hawk is reminding you that “life is the initiation… a clue about the magic of life is being brought to you. This magic can imbue you with the power to overcome a currently stressful or difficult situation”. You have the opportunity to change your entire perception and deepen your communication with Spirit. Universal Energy is present in all that is and all that we do.
During this time you can transform and improve your ability to receive and decipher symbols and messages, and communicate with Spirit. It takes time and practice to be able to trust what you are receiving and build a dialect with Spirit. Ant can help you have the patience to learn. Hawk will get your attention and show you the way.
