Overview: Polar Bear (The Star)
The month of April, the Polar Bear emerges from the wild, snowy landscapes, entering into our lives as our wise and wonderful Spirit Animal Guide. The creature’s appearance immediately announces our need for flexibility this month. The days ahead will prove a test of our mettle and, indeed, will require adaptation to circumstances far beyond our control. Just as the Mighty Polar Bear is forced to adapt to the drastic environmental changes it faces daily, we too will face trying events, situations, and conditions we will have to power through.
Throughout April, just like the Polar Bear, we’ll prefer solitary tasks and isolation. We’ll keep our socialization limited to our close circle of friends, family, and our significant other. For those of us who are single, we’re in no hurry to let just anyone into our reality; we’ll be looking for real and lasting love, refusing to settle for anything less.
While our survival skills are tested at work, at home, and in our relationships, Polar Bear promises our confidence will increase as we conquer each obstacle set in our path. Despite being overwhelmed by worldly conditions, our Animal Spirit Guide comes to tell us this is no time to be faint of heart. Early in the month, we’ll tap into a well of reserved energy and our determination to make it through whatever life casts our way. Remember, Polar Bear lives in harsh climates and has a thick fur coat that not only ensures its survival but helps the creature weather any storm. Our Spirit Guide’s appearance comes just in time to let us know we have the ability to make it through anything.
When the outer world gets a little too crazy for us to handle, Polar Bear Medicine can help us manage the imbalance; female Polar Bears enter into a mild hibernation or “carnivore lethargy” during October, November, March, and April. When entering such a state, Polar Bear’s heart rate slows, their body temperature drops, and they fast while living off body fat stores. Here, Polar Bear shows us how to slow down and use our energy resources wisely. At the same time, the creature instructs us to use this time to purify the mind, body, and spirit. In essence, many of us will engage in meditation, astral travel, and exploration of the dreamscape to attune to the Divine and forecast the future to come.
The sheer size and majestic beauty of Polar Bear call on us to stand strong in our convictions and to recognize our beauty, both in a physical and spiritual sense. When we need a little additional strength to help us make it through the rough spots, we can call on Polar Bear as a Power Animal for support. While we rather avoid confrontation, like Polar Bear, we’ll have no problem rising on our hind legs to make a stand when necessary.
Our ability to survive conditions in a metaphorical sense will be entirely dependent on our strength of will. The good news is that Polar Bear’s appearance also means that things aren’t quite as terrible as they might first appear, and eventually, we will find full gratification with our fondest wishes fulfilled. It’s true; Polar Bear carries the message of potential troubles ahead, but it is the darkest period before the dawn, and like the Aurora Borealis lighting up the northern nighttime skies, there’s a light breaking the darkness, showing us there are better times ahead. Remaining true to ourselves during this period is essential, as it’s a tad amount to always finding true north as we continue onward.
Spirit Animalscopes for All 12 Zodiac Signs
Aries Spirit Animalscope: Penguin (Three of Wands)
Penguin represents the 3 of Cups, Grace, & Prosperity! Discover the Penguin’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
While you’re all about conquering the world, Aries, the energies in April suggest it’s high time you give yourself a much-needed break. Your warrior, take-all attitude has had you pushing yourself to your limits the past few months, but now Penguin waddles into your life as a Spirit Animal Guide to remind you just how vital a little playtime can be. Being a “between” creature that thrives in the water or on land, one of the chief lessons this magnificent creature brings you is how to find that delicate balance of efforts resulting in total happiness.
As your wise Spirit Guide, Penguin also comes to you during times in your life when you need to adapt to environmental changes. The Bird navigates through the water with impressive swimming abilities but is perfectly comfortable hanging around with others in the Penguin community while on land; their flexibility makes it easy for them to maneuver through sudden changes with ease. If you decide to work with Penguin as a Power Animal, you, too, can embrace the same grace in the face of change or life transitions.
And since Penguins congregate in groups, they are a highly social creature; its appearance in your life reminds you of the importance of remaining connected with friends and loved ones, even during times where you feel like isolating yourself from the outside world. Relationship-wise, if you’re in a committed to another, you can anticipate smooth sailing; Your Animal Ally is monogamous and mates for life. For singles, the month of April will have you looking for the “perfect” lifelong mate; this proves ideal since you’re only interested in relationships that are the real deal.
Penguins can consume salt-water without any ill-effect; their bodies process out the salts and internalize the remaining water. As your Spirit Guide for April, Penguin Medicine will serve you well as you filter out the negative vibrations all around you in the external world. Hence, you only take in desirable, positive energies. For the Aries-born empath, such a skill proves particularly beneficial because you’ll undoubtedly tune into the turbulent emotions of others around you during a period where the entire world feels upside down.
Taurus Spirit Animalscope: Scarab
Scarab represents the 10 of Wands, Obstacles, & Eventual Triumph! Discover Scarab’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
The appearance of the Scarab Beetle as a Spirit Guide foretells of a time where you have a strong sense of unity or community with others. In love relationships, your Animal Ally supports you in working in collaboration with your mate. If things are strained, or you’ve had trouble seeing eye-to-eye, you’ll enter a period where you are “on the same page” with your significant other; the idea that there are smoother times ahead in the realm of love couldn’t be more pleasing to the Taurean-born who prefers a relationship that’s easy-going and relatively care-free.
Beetles form colonies and work together to make certain their home remains stable; cooperative effort makes it far easier for you and your mate to get along, and you’ll have an easier time establishing a sense of peace in your household. The same goes for your work environment; any tasks requiring team effort, whether in person or at a distance, will go smoothly, simply because every member is willing to fulfill their role as a team member.
When the Scarab scurries into your life as a Spirit Animal Guide, it’s time to consider taking on a low profile, at least for the short term. The creature is highly adaptable because of its remarkable camouflage and the fact that it thrives in a variety of climates. The one climate Scarab doesn’t thrive in, however, is the coldest regions of the world. As such, when your Animal Spirit Guide flies into your life, it’s time for you to go into hiding in a metaphorical sense, until better, more “sunny” conditions arise, allowing you to thrive.
The Scarab is often associated with ancient mysteries and arcane wisdom; the Ancient Egyptians saw the Scarab as a manifestation of the Sun and the Divine. So, when this colorful insect appears in your life, it’s a period where you’ll look to learn more about the mysteries of the world. You’ll experience a heightened desire to explore fringe subjects like alchemy, numerology, and astrology, all to further your spiritual growth. In April, your psychic senses will prove quite sharp, particularly the skill of clairvoyance, since your Animal Ally represents the “All-Seeing” Eye of God.
Gemini Spirit Animalscope: Dog
Dog represents Friendship, Loyalty, & Pathfinding! Discover the Dog’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
When Dog scampers into your life as your Spirit Animal Guide, it marks a period where you’ll experience unconditional love, or you’ll discover true love at long last. Dogs are among the most loyal creatures on the planet and show their loyalty by offering their chosen humans continual demonstrations of affection.
The appearance of Dog as your Spirit Animal for April means those in committed relationships will have plenty of quality time to share where each partner dotes on the other. Your bond will intensify and deepen. Singles will discover a faithful partner interested in genuine love. Even friendships benefit when Dog arrives as an Animal Ally; the creature appears to draw your attention to the unbreakable bonds you’ve developed with others.
At the same time, Dog’s appearance may be calling your attention to check your loyalties and who you dedicate yourself to; Dogs have remarkable senses allowing them to detect when there’s something “not quite right” with a person’s vibrations. When Dog emerges as an Animal Ally, the creature urges you to tune into your internal compass and listen to that voice within, especially when it comes to sensing if someone is trustworthy or not.
The arrival of Dog as a Spirit Animal Guide also hallmarks a period where you’ll need to be more protective of yourself and those you love. Domestic Dogs often protect their households and those within, barking when strangers or would-be intruders come near their premises. With Dog entering your life at this time, it’s time to protect yourself from the questionable elements in the outside world and to keep safe what you cherish and those you love from potential emotional or physical dangers. Hence, Dog’s arrival is a calling for you to heighten your awareness and to remain ever observant of what’s happening around you at all times; Dog also encourages the Air-ruled Gemini to tune into their psychic senses for additional help with reading peoples’ motivations and the environment.
Cancer Spirit Animalscope: Tiger (King of Wands)
In April, you’ll start to come out of your shell, Cancer, thanks to the entrance of Tiger as your Spirit Animal Guide. From the first of the month onward, you’ll feel adventurous and more willing to take risks than usual. Instead of being shy or introverted, you’ll look to make new friends and, when it comes to romantic relationships, you’ll have far less hesitation when it comes to being emotionally vulnerable. Tiger, being an apex predator, has little to fear as it roams through its natural habitat. Tiger has a bright and colorful fur coat, and every step they take bursts with confidence. Your Animal Companion comes to encourage you to tap into your brave inner self, and to step out into the world where you can really shine.
This month, you may encounter events requiring you to take a stand or to remain strong in your convictions. Tiger, as a Spirit Animal Guide, comes to help you do just that; the creature can prove quite aggressive when it needs to defend itself, or when it is going after something it desires. When others challenge your authority or cross your personal boundaries without apologies, Tiger reminds you of the fierce warrior within you fully capable of rising up to defend your ground or beliefs. Tiger says, “Claim your power!”
Tigers are skillful hunters knowing precisely when to make a move and when to remain still. So, when this Animal Spirit Guide comes into your life in April, it’s to help you develop the patience you need to deal with conditions or relationships in a timely and appropriate manner. If you’re looking to make ground in your career, Tiger can instill you with that “go-get-’em” attitude. But, if the time is not quite right for you to make a move into a new career or to ask for that raise, Tiger comes to show you how to remain patient and stay the course until the right time arises.
In relationships, you can expect intimate moments to prove quite spicy when Tiger appears as a Spirit Animal. Tigers are indeed aggressive, but this energy is something you can translate into assertiveness when it comes to interacting with your lover. Since Tigers are also creatures that prove quite nurturing with their young, you’ll also have no problem showing your playful and tender side to another.
Leo Spirit Animalscope: Cricket
Cricket represents Direction, Good Luck, & Happiness! Discover the Cricket’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
When Cricket hops into your life this month, Leo, the creature comes to remind you of the importance of looking before you take that leap of faith. Cricket knows that some situations require that you jump right in while other conditions require that you keep your feet on the ground. While often a symbol of good fortune, Cricket knows luck will only take you so far. There are two long antennae on Cricket’s head, which they use for sensing the environment around them. As your Animal Spirit Guide, Cricket encourages you to take the time to feel out the environment or conditions before making a move.
It is these same antennae that cause Cricket to represent psychic skills, particularly clairsentience or “clear feeling.” The appearance of this creature as your Animal Ally points to days in April where you’ll need to rely on your psychic senses; Cricket comes to show you how to truly trust your inner voice so you can rely on what you feel through your non-physical senses without wavering. The creature’s appearance also denotes days where you’ll feel totally connected to the Universe, or you’ll know, without question, that your Guides are with you. You may also receive messages from the realm of Spirit, particularly from ancestors who have gone before you during this period. Such messages often occur through meditation, in dreams, or you’ll receive them through psychic senses.
Cricket comes to you when you’ve been holding back on saying what you mean to say or if you’re having difficulty expressing your distinct voice. Cricket’s song is one of contentment; when the creature is upset or concerned about approaching predators, it stops making it’s “music.” So, when Cricket comes into your life, its Medicine helps you find your inner strength and courage so that you can let your voice ring out loud and true. As an Animal Ally, Cricket will also show you how to determine if what you want to convey is something others are open to receiving or if you should wait until a better time to express yourself.
Virgo Spirit Animalscope: Warthog (Two of Cups)
Warthog is your Spirit Animal for the month of April, Virgo, and the creature’s appearance suggests you’ll be ready to plow through any conditions that come your way. Warthog features two massively powerful tusks protruding from its mouth, which it uses for digging up food and for defending itself from predators. The creature backs into a den when in defense mode, so a predator encounters its massive tusks first and foremost. As such, just like the Warthog, you’ll have no problem taking challenges head-on, and your inner warrior will shine as you look danger right in the eyes!
Warthog plows through whatever it has to in order to take care of its needs; you share this same attitude and are not one to procrastinate or to wait for things to unfold. In April, you’ll look to make manifest what you desire at work or in the home environment by plowing through obligations, responsibilities, and chores. Your Animal Ally also doesn’t walk around in fear; the creature is often solitary and prefers being alone. So, you too will feel most confident when you are on your own or when you can work alone.
When Warthog stomps into your life, you’ll have no problem being absolutely vulnerable with your romantic interest. Warthog is so named for warts appearing on its face, which comes from its thick, protective skin. The creature’s appearance marks a period where you’ll allow someone to see the “genuine you,” flaws and all, knowing that person will still love you unconditionally, even with all of your idiosyncrasies. Likewise, you will do the same; Warthog’s entrance announces the existence of consummate love. If you’re single, you’ll yearn for a genuine relationship where your partner is faithful, true, and compassionate.
Libra Spirit Animalscope: Octopus (King of Cups)
You’ll have your hands full this April, Libra, so finding balance, which is one of your innate needs, will seem like a cumbersome task indeed; it’s all because Octopus wriggles its way into your life and emerges as your Spirit Animal Guide this month. While your Animal Ally has eight long, tentacled legs, you can anticipate busy days ahead, requiring you to demonstrate your most remarkable multi-tasking skills. You’ll have your hands full at work or home, trying to fulfill your obligations or finish up whatever it is you want to complete.
Thank goodness you’re right on top of your game as far as your intellect; the entrance of Octopus announces a time when your memory is as sharp as it has ever been. Don’t be surprised if you experience many nostalgic moments. Your sharp mind will trigger visions of your childhood experiences as far back as you can remember, and you’ll think of moments you haven’t thought about in a long time. Like the Octopus, which is a creature with incredible grace in movement in the oceanic waters, memories will flow in and out of your mind. Listening to music or the sound of running water will likely trigger even more remembrances to rise to the surface of your consciousness.
Octopus, though a creature of the water because of its natural habitat, also relates to the Earth Element. Octopus moves along the floor of the ocean as it camouflages itself from would-be predators. The creature’s natural movement places it close to the earth, which signals a time in your life where you’ll draw closer to the Divine Feminine and feel most comfortable when you are out in nature. It also means you’ll have a pretty low profile while remaining out of the limelight during the month; Octopus has no problem being solitary, and its closeness to the earth ensures it remains out of sight, until it chooses to emerge in safe waters.
Scorpio Spirit Animalscope: Hawk (Ace of Swords)
When Hawk wings its way into your life as your Spirit Animal Guide, Scorpio, rest assured in knowing you’ll experience a level of extreme awareness this month. Hawk flies high above the world, but its keen vision allows it to be a master of observation. You’ll have no trouble seeing things with exceptional clarity, and this includes seeing things on a psychic level. People’s motivations are clear, and reading between the lines helps you navigate relationships and interactions with others with perfect grace. And since your Spirit Animal soars high in the skies, it is a creature that draws ever close to the realm of Spirit. As such, ready yourself for incoming psychic messages, prophetic dreams, or profound insights.
Being a Bird of Prey, your Spirit Animal Guide has impressive decision-making skills; it can move in swiftly to attain what it desires, so the creature comes to you in times where opportunity waits for you to seize it. The message this remarkable creature carries on its wing is to act now and to act swiftly. Doing so will ensure you achieve soaring success!
Hawk also emerges at this time because you’re about to experience a period of spiritual advancement. Hawk is a messenger of the Divine, so when it flies into your reality, it means you are making a greater connection with the Universe. You’ll also enter a period of soul searching, as you question the meaning of your life or the mission you are meant to fulfill.
When it comes to relationships, you’ll be headed toward a deeper commitment when this amorous Bird of Prey swoops into your world. Hawks mate for life and announce the transition of a relationship into something that becomes lifelong and monogamous. If you’re single, you’ll dream about meeting your soulmate; either way, though it is often difficult for you to develop trust, you will be willing to open your heart to another and remain vulnerable.
Sagittarius Spirit Animalscope: Bat (The Hanged Man)
The month of April may have you feeling stuck in place, Sagittarius, at least temporarily. As Bat wings its way into your life, there are many days where you’ll feel like you’re just hanging around and not making progress or others may just up and “leave you hanging,” while you wonder what comes next. Not to worry, Bat’s don’t hang upside in their caves forever, and you won’t remain in this transitional phase for much longer either. In the meantime, Bat comes into your life with a few messages on how to handle this period “in waiting.”
Bat is a creature with ties to the Underworld and Death, but it is also a symbol of change and renewal. Look at the days in April as time where you enter a protective energetic cocoon of sorts, until the energies surrounding you are more supportive. As you wait out this period, you’ll find you change considerably; your emotions may evolve, or you may develop a new perspective about the world. Bat urges you to remain patience, assuring you there is a time for everything, including a time to fly and a time for rest.
At this moment in your live, Bat comes to encourage you to turn inward to begin a journey of self-exploration or evaluation. Your Animal Ally supports you as you take a very honest, and perhaps brutal, self-inventory. Doing so gives you the opportunity to make right things that are wrong or to gain closer where you’ve left things undone.
When it comes to relationships, you’ll find Bat as an affectionate Animal Ally; they hang out in groups, and communicate with their young and other family members. In fact, Bats are known to cuddle up to one another, so your Animal Spirit Guide appears in your life as an indication you’ll have many loving and tender moments with family, friends, or a lover. If your romantic relationships undergo a transitional period, you’ll end up having profound insights and undergo a transformative experience for the better. Bat says, “Hang in there! There are better times to come!”
Capricorn Spirit Animalscope: Walrus (Eight of Cups)
Walrus arrives as a Spirit Animal Guide for the month of April, Capricorn, promising you plenty of support dealing with major transitions in your life. Walrus is massive in size, making the creature steadfast in the face of change or adversity; the creature comes with the message for you to remain true to your convictions and to stand up for what you believe in, even when there is chaos around you or conditions are changing fast. The creature is larger than life, so it also comes with the message that you should stand proud of who you are while never letting your confidence falter.
If you feel out of touch with the Universe or you have no clear spiritual path, Walrus emerges from the wild to help you find direction once more. If for whatever reason, you’ve lost your faith, Walrus helps you rediscover it. Shamans have long considered Walrus the keeper of ancient wisdom, the mysteries, and arcane knowledge. A creature that navigates the realm of water and earth, Walrus comes to represent “time outside of time,” and “between spaces,” both of which are considered magical. Here, Walrus can help you tune into the esoteric knowledge you seek, to reconnect with Spirit, and to rediscover the real magic and wonder that’s been missing in your day-to-day existence.
Walrus also arrives in your life now because it wants you to know it’s okay to take a step back or to step away from the limelight. You don’t always have to fill a leadership role to be happy. Walrus prefers to be a follower because the role equals simplicity; the creature comes to show you how to find happiness by simplifying your life and letting go of the extraordinarily high expectations you have of yourself. It’s one thing to want to be the best, but it’s another to make your expectations impossible to meet entirely. Walrus says, “Let go, and just be: It’s where you’ll find peace.”
Aquarius Spirit Animalscope: Opossum
Opossum represents Capriciousness, Adaptability, & Concealment! Discover the Opossum’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
Opossum, as a Spirit Animal, arrives in your life, just in time to help you develop a much-needed strategy and to find solutions to long-lasting difficulties, Aquarius. Likely you’ve heard of stories where Opossum’s play dead, especially when defending themselves from danger. The notion of “playing dead,” is a bit misleading, however, as Opossum’s nervous system reacts according to the creature’s experience and fear, essentially shutting down and making it look like the creature is “playing dead” to defend itself. This unique attribute makes Opossum a Spirit Animal Guide that comes to prepare you for situations or conditions that will require you to “play Possum,” at least for now. Lying low and taking no action is the best course to follow, as it gives you time to develop a concrete strategy for making it through troubling times.
The notion of playing Possum extends into creating a temporary stall of conditions, so you escape the existing conflict. Opossum doesn’t care for dealing with aggression, and instead, take the passive approach to problem-solving. Here, your Animal Ally’s Medicine instructs you to take the least aggressive path forward to ensure your emotional safety and the well-being of those you care about as well.
When Opossum comes into your world, it announces a time of heightened intuition. Opossums are born without sight, so they have to rely solely on their senses and instinct until their physical sight develops; this makes your Animal Ally one that can teach you the means for “seeing” without physical eyes. In April, you’re likely to have several clairvoyant or clear-seeing psychic experiences. You’ll also find it easier to read between the lines when interacting with others.
Pisces Spirit Animalscope: Dolphin (Knight of Cups)
Dolphin represents the Knight of Pentacles, Self-Love, & Communication! Discover the Dolphin’s Meaning, Medicine, & Messages for life-changing insights! Click to buy your copy of The Ark Animal Tarot & Oracle Deck, now!
Dolphin swims into your realm when you need to learn how to feel comfortable exploring and expressing your feelings, Pisces. You are one who often hides how you feel, though you feel quite deeply. You often have trouble wrapping words around what it is you want to say, especially when you’re in a romantic relationship. With Dolphin as your Spirit Animal, you are encouraged to explore the feelings you have right now, but the majestic creature is also urging you to let your voice be heard. Dolphin can’t keep its head underwater forever, and neither can you. Your Spirit Animal supports you as you emerge from the hidden realms of emotion and let the world know your deepest desires.
Dolphin, as a Spirit Animal, is quite playful and comes to urge you to experience more joy in your life through play. If your romantic relationship has stalled out of boredom or complacency, it’s time to add a little spice back into the relationship. Dolphins also swim through water all day, but they occasionally come up for air; it suggests finding a balance between your all work, no play approach to restoring happiness in every area of your life.
As a mammal, Dolphins breathe Air, so they relate to the Air Element, the intellect, and Spirit. When the creature appears in your life, it means you’ll be expanding your intellectual and spiritual horizons this month. Dolphins are naturally curious creatures, often swimming toward humans in the water just to see what they are doing; this natural curiosity is something Dolphin encourages you to embrace all the days of April so that you can grow mentally and spiritually. Dolphin says, “The world is truly a place of magic! Come out and play!
