Both Eyes Closed

Daily Draw: Nahualli Animal Oracle ~ Skunk

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.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
