and the messages they bring you


Only when we move through life in the spirit of love for all beings can we melt the barriers that separate us from others, from other life forms, and from the beautiful mystery which is our own magical and spiritual gift.

If Deer has crossed your path;

It is often a sign not to be too hard on yourself. Still the voice of the self critic and treat yourself with gentleness and understanding, be yourself and continue along your path. Seek out your inner treasures and use them generously to help those around you. Trust that kindness and graciousness will be well received.

We are also reminded that we cannot push towards change in others, rather we gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Lead by doing and showing the way.

Deer is a messenger of serenity, can see between shadows and hear what isn’t being said.

Deer teaches us to maintain our innocence and gentleness so we can share our open-heartedness with others.

If Deer is your Animal Totem;

You have the knowledge of how to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of the wounded beings in your life. You have a propensity to see new innocence and freshness in life everywhere and you constantly feel the lure of new adventures. Often you have a link to the arts, especially poetry and music.

You are also a keen observer, able to see well in low light. You are also a very compassionate, gentle and loving person.

If Deer has come to your Dream;

It symbolizes grace, compassion, gentleness, meekness and natural beauty. It has feminine qualities and may point to the feminine aspect within yourself. It also represents independence, alertness, and virility. Consider the symbol to be a pun for someone who is “dear” to you. Alternatively, the dream represents vulnerability and naivety. As a result, others may take advantage of you and your gullibility.

If the deer is black, then it means that you are not acknowledging or are rejecting the feminine qualities in you. You may not be in tune with your feminine side.

To dream that you hunt or kill a dear suggests that you are trying to suppress those feminine qualities.

To see a male deer or buck in your dream represents alertness, virility, masculine sexuality and assertiveness. If the two bucks are fighting, then it signifies male aggression. You are trying to dominate or take control over some area of your life. Alternatively, the dream may be a pun on a dollar.

  • I had a dream where tigers where jumping the fences of my backyard. I was amazed at the site but noticed a young tiger was unable to make the jump and was left behind. I went outside, regardless of the fear I felt and thought the baby tiger to jump not knowing it’s mother was watching. After so, I went inside unharmed. A few minutes later I hear another noise but to my surprise, this time it was a young fawn. There was a baby deer outside my sliding glass door. I let it in, knowing there was tigers outside. Only, this time when I was ready to take it outside, there was a tiger there. I’m not sure if it was the mother or young tiger but it did not leave. No matter how much time passed it seemed to want the deer. Knowing the baby deer’s fate, I kept it safe inside till I awoke. This dream is not like any other, I woke up and still feel like there is significance behind it yet, I unsure of what it might be. Can you help explain? I

  • This morning before dawn as I began my morning ritual of walking a sacred circle outside a deer snorted in the dark and bounded off to the north. Any thoughts on this?

  • I had never heard of spirit animals and didn’t know anything about them when I met this guy and I had this strong impression of a deer: he somehow just reminded me of a majestic, peaceful deer, and I had never really associated people with animals before him. I got to know him a little bit and he was very kind, soft spoken and the most empathetic person I had ever seen, ever: he felt people’s problems more than they did, really a lot of sympathy for others. Reading this, he has exactly all of these traits. He even plays an instrument and sings well. I only much later found out the deer was his favorite animal and he kept a very pretty (artistic, not necessarily realistic) painting of one in his room.

  • Last fall, I was at my house when I heard the sounds of clattering sticks and heavy breathing. I looked out the window and saw 2 eight point bucks with antlers intertwined, pushing against each other and shaking their heads. The 2 bucks seemed equally matched as one pushed the other back for a bit, and then the other would dig in and push the first around. Their hooves and antlers churned up the ground as they struggled. Sometimes they rested for a minute or so to catch their breath, then it started again. At one point their antlers locked and they struggled to separate themselves – they seemed to be working together at this point. After they separated, they paused and came back together again each trying to gain advantage over the other. After about 10-15 minutes of this, they separated and left. I was both amazed and grateful for the experience, but have often wondered since then why I was invited to witness this event. It doesn’t seem that it occurred by accident.

    • Hello Kathy: This significant event in your life is also representative of the internal struggle you have constantly with your own will power. Only when you come to full unconditional love and acceptance for yourself will this internal struggle cease and leave you.

  • Im interested in the message specifically of Fawn. any info is appreciated!

    • Hello Carla: A Fawn is the “Light.” They are the manifestation of spiritual inspiration in action. To see a Fawn is to know that new spiritual truths will soon be revealed to you. They are faithful, graceful, upright and affectionate and represent the nurturing support of the Universe. In the shadow form they seek favor through subservience, flattery and pandering. They refuse to own their power.
