Jaguar showed Skunk how he caught big prey by jumping on their necks and bringing them down. Skunk one day tried the same thing and clinging to the neck, was borne away, never to be heard from again.
I'm reminded by this card the difference between the skill to recognize, plan for, and take a calculated risk, and jumping into something with no forethought.
Another from my little collection of Mesoamerican decks, Nahualli Animal Oracle illustrated by Raphael Montoliu, softcover 183 page book by Caelum Rainieri and Ivory Andersen. Deck includes forty cards said to encompass the Azetc's concept of the sacred in animal form. Published by Bear and Company 2003.
The cards open previously closed doors to my own heart with their merciless quest for the truth, nothing but the truth. They flay the soul and make me say thank you afterward. Each hour spent with my cards is a new lesson to be learned. Viva la Journey.
