Center: The animal spirit that appears in the center of the Medicine Wheel reflects who you are at this point in time.

 
Beaver

Beaver may be one of the hardest working animals on the planet. Beaver is attuned to both earth and water medicine, and is strongly attached to home and family. Beaver appears in your reading to remind you that sometimes there's no substitute for hard work. Make a plan, create a solid foundation, then take the next indicated step.

 

 

North: The animal that appears in the North shows you how to walk your talk. Here lies your connection with your Higher Self.

 
Skunk

Phew! Everyone knows Skunk's power—that's why people (and other animals) get out of his way! If you're lacking self-esteem, Skunk is there to help. You are worthy of a happy life—and if someone is making you miserable, look to Skunk as a confidence builder. Remember, though, Skunk doesn't have to spray to be powerful—his reputation precedes him! And, like Skunk, you don't need to spray either-but you do need to stand your ground calmly, and with Skunk's confidence.

 

 

East: This animal reveals the direction you need to take in order to gain clarity about your present situation.

 
Moose

Moose represents incredible strength and longevity, as well as the ability to see the future. Moose antlers are among the largest of the antlered animals, and are like psychic antennae—giving Moose amazingly developed hearing, smell, and depth perception. Moose is bellowing at you to open your third eye and stop pretending that you don't know what's about to happen.

 

 

South: This animal explores issues dealing with your inner child, and shows the energy needed to trust your own process.

 
Armadillo

You'll never get too close to Armadillo as his hard shell will keep you at arm's length! And, if this roly-poly fellow is in your reading, he's asking YOU to examine the areas where you need a hard shell—boundaries! Do you “do” for everyone but never “do” for yourself? Or, are you being TOO sensitive, protecting yourself even when danger isn't present?

 

 

West: The animal that appears in the West holds the answer to your present challenge.

 
Cougar

Cougar has long been associated with leadership. Cougars are powerful, agile, and unhesitating. When Cougar attacks, he throws one hundred percent of himself into the pursuit. Although cougar is strong, he is also elusive —hard to spot in the wild—until he decides to pounce. His lesson to you today is one of being a balanced leader—not rushing into the attack, not always lurking in the brush.
