Pick Your Holiday Animal Guide!

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving last week! I stayed in a charming town called Galena in Illinois with my husband’s family.

I am so proud of myself for having my first vegan Thanksgiving meal. It took some extra effort but it was worth it and delicious.

Okay, so as we head into the thick of the holiday season I thought you might like to pick an animal guide to be by your side over the next month or so.

I specifically chose animals from my Animal Guides Printable Card Deck that are associated with this time of year.

Look at the image above. Close your eyes and breathe deeply.

Open your eyes. Choose the card you feel drawn to the most. 

Scroll down for the cards and messages. 

Have fun with this! Notice when you see your animal represented during the holiday season. You might see it on pillows, in commercials, or even live!

Use the hashtag #holidayanimalguide so I can join in the fun!

Each morning, ask your animal to guide you through your day and to help you tap into the qualities associated with this animal that will best serve you.

You can imagine your guide with you throughout the day. I imagine my bear animal guide helping me during the Yoga with Weights class I go to, FOR REAL! Lol! 

Working with Animal Guides is such a great way to feel supported while having fun.

See below for your guide!

Clockwise From Top:

Llama: Reminding you to keep going during the holiday season even when you feel overwhelmed and want to give up. Focusing on what makes you unique will help.

Fox: You might run into some sticky situations so remember that your quick thinking can save the day. Staying active will make this easier.

Squirrel: Planning ahead will be a lifesaver this season. take some time to write out to-do lists, menus, shopping, lists, etc. This will allow you to enjoy the energetic buzz of this time of year.

Camel: This holiday season will ask you to have a mix of independence and affection when it comes to your interactions. Have a practice of tuning in so that you know when do which.

Deer: You will be asked to have a tremendous amount of compassion towards yourself and others this season. Allow your sensitive side to help you and remember to rest.

Owl: Allow yourself to be a wise one this season. Tap into intuition and possibly help others who consider this time of year to be a dark one, especially if that person is you.

Free Printable Todo List – November Arrows & Foxes!

Happy November! After taking down our Halloween decorations, I got on a fall cleaning kick and decided to make myself some printable todo lists for November and I am sharing them with you.

One has a fall-themed arrow at the bottom and the other has the fox from my printable oracle cards (they will be made available to everyone next week!).

I always associate foxes with this time of year.

Fox energy:

  • Trickster.
  • Swiftly maneuvers around obstacles.
  • Quick thinking.
  • Physical prowess.
  • Great at facing sticky situations.

I feel like a lot of these qualities can be so helpful this time of year as lives get more hectic. Keep an eye out for fox animal guides popping up in your life this month!
