What energy does an elephant hold symbolically?
When I think of an elephant the first thing that comes to my mind is the phrase gentle giant. There is both a sensitivity and a strength embodied within the elephant, as well as ageless wisdom.
The elephant holds the key to feminine wisdom and power. She brings with her ties to the trinity of the maiden, the mother, and the crone. The sacred feminine is anchored in the depth of her wisdom and compassion.
Elephants are deeply rooted in their family lines. They rely on their lineage instinctually and stay tied to the herd throughout their entire lives, marching together through each experience.
They understand the value of love and loyalty, something that is instinctual to the elephant itself. They also understand that family does not just refer to blood relative - they have the capacity to experience this tie of love and loyalty even to others who have proved worthy to the elephant.
The elephant energy may show up in your life if you are on a path of learning or seeking. With the innate connection they have to that divine feminine wisdom, this animal can help guide the path as you unravel whatever it is you are seeking in this life - which will often bring you back to the heart, the earth, and the nurturing of connection.
Often times when you are called to the elephant, the message associated with it is connectedness. Maybe there is a need to reconnect with your tribe. Maybe there is a need to reconnect with meaning or purpose in your life. When feeling disconnected from the people in your circle, or the meaning of your life, it may help to call on the elephant to bring her magic with you.
The elephants innate wisdom and understanding of tribe dynamics as seen in the herd, can help reform the connections that you feel are missing in your life.
Times when it might be helpful to call on the elephant totem-
When feeling tension within your family or close knit groups.
When you’ve lost connection with your loved ones, your feeling of purpose, or your understanding of meaning in your life.
When you need clarity or a deeper understanding behind the “metaphysics” of who you are and what you are here for.
When you are in need of confidence and strength to endure what’s in front of you from the heart and with compassion.
Elephants symbolize awareness linked to the divine feminine principle. Their presence alone exudes authority and confidence- a strength that is deeply rooted and yet met by their giant stature. They don’t use their size for intimidation unless threatened. They hold their strength in a very calm and contained way because its roots are from within.

If you’re called to the Fox what does it mean symbolically?
A fox is known for being sly and keen. They are quick on their toes and can move swiftly and gracefully. They are playful creatures and yet very sharp and instinctual.
The fox points to being able to swiftly find your way around obstacles in your path. They have a very adaptable nature that can move seamlessly with changing times and the uncertainties of life.
From a spiritual perspective, the fox brings forth the ability to sharpen your awareness and your senses. I see this energy as the ability to trust the deep instinct of your intuition as soon as it arises. Feel it, trust it, jump.
One of my favorite traits of the fox is its cunning nature - cunning in the sense that it can keenly see through deception. The fox is not overtaken by the stories presented to us, but rather cuts right to what lies underneath the surface. The fox picks up on the true heartbeat and energetics that lie beneath, rather than all of the whimsical words and presentations that come out head on.
If the fox is calling you in, it may be asking you to trust the knee jerk intuition that you have before any mental thought taints it. There may be reason in your life for the need to react quickly and swiftly - to analyze a situation and trust the first intuitive judgment you hold without thinking twice - and then act.
It may also be calling you to sharpen your awareness. Sometimes the best way to do this is by observing situations objectively, rather than subjectively. Try to take a few steps back from the story and just observe, listen patiently, gather the underlay of information to gain the resources needed to before acting or responding.
The fox may be bringing to your attention an area of life where you are being deceived. This may be a time for you to drop in to that untainted intuition and take a deeper look at what is happening. Not what is being said or shown, but what do you feel intuitively. This can help you to release the air of confusion that often comes with deception.
The fox brings with it an acute ability to address any problem with mental sharpness and strong, solid intuition. By doing so, they are nimble and able to adjust immediately to maneuver in and out of difficulty.
As a nocturnal animal, the fox calls for dream work. Pay attention to the symbolism in your dreams - keep a journal and let your intuition guide you toward the unraveling of meaning presented.
The fox is a magician. with all of the sharpness, attunement, and intuitive instinct mentioned above- the fox has the ability to create and play with the energies it sees. When used consciously and in wholeness, this can become an amazing masterpiece, but be careful not to drive this force with too much ego- this can create unwanted circumstances as manifestations unravel.
