Overview: MOUSE (3 OF Pentacles)
We’re ready to get things back on track this month and to put ourselves all into everything we do, but we may face challenges that seem almost impossible to overcome. Thankfully, Mouse scurries in as our Spirit Animal Guide to remind us a bit of resourcefulness goes a long way. Even if our current circumstances suggest otherwise, we can make it through troubling conditions.
Despite its tiny size, Mouse overcomes amazing obstacles, with its impressive climbing, swimming, and jumping abilities. We too, can learn from Mouse how to surmount whatever obstacles that lie ahead and with considerably more ease than we might imagine. Mouse teaches us how to navigate emotional waters with ease, climb the social or career ladder with success, and move toward our goals while making progress in leaps and bounds. No matter what we face, we can still establish the solid foundations we want to build upon and achieve our highest aspirations if we use our unique talents and every skill available to us.
Part of Mouse Medicine has everything to do with the creature’s skill at finding the resources and sustenance it needs to survive. Indeed, Mouse makes a meal out of leftover foods, crumbs, and the food sources it sniffs out; this gives Mouse the ability to make something out of very little or even seemingly nothing at all. When living in the wild, the clever little creature lives in well-made burrows with long entryways and plenty of openings to ensure a safe exit. Here, Mouse reminds us as we make concrete plans for the future and the long road ahead to remember to have a “plan B” to put into action.
Our Animal Spirit Guide for July is always hungry, having a sizeable appetite requiring the creature to take in nourishment up to twenty times daily! Mouse likes to create its home close to its source of food for ease of access, and the continuous feedings are a reminder to nourish ourselves, especially our minds and spirits. With the current unpredictable and chaotic state of the world, feeding our souls and expressing our feelings remains paramount.
Its size and impressive flexibility allow Mouse to squeeze itself through the smallest holes and cracks in a structure. So, Mouse shows up to support us, no matter what the situation. If we’ve felt like we’re between a rock and a hard place, Mouse assures us there’s more than likely a way out of conditions if we remain flexible and cunning. Mouse is a nocturnal creature, preferring the stillness and safety of the night when seeking out all it needs for survival. We too, may find we are most creative during the evening hours or have higher energy after sunset. We may also prefer to be alone with our thoughts, giving us ample down time to relax and clear our heads.
Mouse has poor vision, but its sense of smell and hearing more than make up the difference for the creature’s limited eyesight. The creature also makes use of its whiskers to detect the environment and physical temperatures. This month, we may need to listen to what people are saying (or not saying) with greater care to get the full picture surrounding conditions. We may also have to sniff out information to make more empowered decisions.
In July, some of us may experience Clairaudience and Clairolfactory experiences, offering us psychic messages with guidance from the Higher Self or the Universe. We may also have heightened empathy and Clairsentient abilities, thanks to the energetic support and sacred wisdom we gain from our tiny Animal Spirit Guide, the crafty Mouse.
Spirit Animalscopes for All 12 Zodiac Signs
Aries Spirit Animalscope: Cricket
A more perfect Spirit Animal Guide you could not find, Aries. Cricket jumps into your life in July, offering its Medicine and Sacred Wisdom as support. Cricket plays its musical song with confidence, and you, too, are a confident soul. The creature arrives to remind you to stand firm when using your voice and to remain proud while singing your soul song!
Cricket may even be a Totem Animal for you, one you connect with when you tap into that inner warrior within; you don’t let the grass grow under your feet, Aries, as you create your reality exactly as you see fit. Nor does Cricket remain on the same small wedges of earth and grass, it leaps about from one patch of earth to the next. Cricket uses its wings to make lovely, hypnotic chirping sounds, and it’s the males of the species that are the natural music makers. Here, your Animal Guide suggests focusing on the masculine or Yang Energies, taking action, speaking your truth, and making sure others hear what you say.
Crickets will make music for several reasons, including when they are angry and, of course, when they are in love. If you’ve been holding back on expressing intimate emotions, Cricket’s entrance into your reality is urging you to express how you feel. Likewise, if you have a rival or two and have held off telling them your thoughts on a matter, Cricket comes to you with the message “Jump to it!” There’s not a moment to waste – Say what’s on your mind and free yourself from the toxicity of pent-up emotions.
Cricket’s sounds are a hint at the surrounding external temperature. If you count the number of chirps that you hear over fourteen seconds and then multiply that number by forty, you’ll be able to predict, with impressive accuracy, the temperature of the outdoor environment. Here, Cricket’s energetic influence supports you in “feeling out” your emotional environment or conditions for ease of navigation through relationships or situations where you may feel uncertain or lack enough information to feel entirely confident.
Cricket teaches you how to tap into your psychic senses and heighten your awareness of the higher vibrations around you. The creature has antennae for detecting movement around them. You can use the information and feelings you experience to empower decisions or conquer any obstacles you face. Most Crickets are green, red, brown, or black in their coloring; all the latter colors remind you to remain grounded and in tune with the earth’s rhythms.
Taurus Spirit Animalscope: Crab
If you’ve been feeling vulnerable as of late, Taurus, it’s with good cause. Crab sidesteps its way into your reality this month to announce its time to don your psychological armor. Your Animal Spirit Guide has a hard exoskeleton that protects its softer interior. Thus, the creature comes to you when you’ll want to take responsibility for your mental and emotional well-being.
Crabs swim and walk sideways as they move across land. In July, you’ll want to do all you can to sidestep conflict. Right now, you have enough on your plate to deal with and will want to limit chaotic conditions to ensure nothing forces you to take on any more than you can handle.
Crabs are decapods featuring two claws and eight additional legs; the number ten is significant. It suggests you’re nearing the end of a difficult cycle and about to come full circle. Your Animal Spirit’s body is flat, allowing it to fit through small crevices and narrow cracks. If you’ve been feeling stuck in an impossible or inescapable position, Crab’s arrival comes just in time to announce that you’ll make it through tough conditions, even if you feel it’s by the skin of your teeth.
Crabs have earned the appropriate nickname of being Spiders of the Sea; that’s because they, like Spiders, have many flexible legs ensuring their ease of movement. Here Taurus, comes an important lesson you can draw from Crab Medicine: Try not to remain so adamant or inflexible that you lose the ability to move with ease when it becomes necessary to do so.
With Crab as your Animal Guide for July, it’s not the time to get involved in long-term projects. Instead, multiple short-term projects will prove far more successful; female crabs lay up to 2000 eggs with their pregnancies lasting about two weeks. So, any endeavor with a short gestation will be easier for you to accomplish. As you work through any project or deal with existing relationships, be sure to keep a clear perspective or a willingness to view things through different points of view; the compound eyes of a Crab feature many lenses the creature uses for taking in its environment with fantastic clarity.
Gemini Spirit Animalscope: Tiger (King of Wands)
In July, you’ll want to show the world your most authentic self, Gemini, and do it while standing proud. Your Animal Spirit Guide is the mighty and massively-sized Tiger. When entering your life, the creature announces a time to stand out and be brash about it! Tigers can weigh up to 600 pounds or more, signifying a time when you’re feeling larger than life. A Tiger, indeed, cannot change its stripes because the dark markings are not only part of its fur coat, but its skin too; here, Tiger teaches you to be yourself, with every Tiger having striped patterns as unique as the human fingerprint. When this creature steps into your reality, it’s time to let your confidence soar and be proud of the unique qualities that make you who you are.
Your Animal Spirit Guide is a nocturnal creature, suggesting you’ll have greater energy, or your mind will be most active at night. Don’t be surprised when an influx of creative ideas flow greatest in the morning’s wee hours, well before the sun rises. Tiger’s coloring gives you clues to its meaning, Medicine, and Wisdom, with orange being the color of attraction, and black representing the unknown and mysterious. In July, you may find it easy to draw to yourself what you are most attracted to by aligning your intentions, and you may also find you have a desire for arcane knowledge.
Unlike most domestic Cats, the Tiger loves water and swims with incredible skill. They are powerful creatures, even in water, being able to swim for miles before tiring. Here, your Animal Spirit Guide supports you in going with the energetic flow and exploring deep emotions you might otherwise hide, avoid, or ignore. You may spend a considerable amount of time alone this month, but it is by choice; your Spirit Guide is a solitary creature that seldom spends time with groups.
In July, if you’ve got something on your mind, just say it, Gemini. You’re an excellent communicator with Air being your governing element, and Tiger has an impressive roar that others can hear from several miles away. Your Animal Guide encourages socializing with others, too, since it has several vocalizations it uses to express its mood and desires. Finally, when opportunities knock on your door, Tiger supports you in “pouncing on them,” but only if the moment is right to do so. Tigers are ambush predators, stalking what they desire before jumping into action.
Cancer Spirit Animalscope: Chicken
Your Animal Spirit Guide for July is Chicken, Cancer, but it doesn’t mean you’ll run scared or feel more vulnerable than usual. Chickens are the distant relatives of the Tyrannosaurus Rex: One of the most fearsome creatures ever to roam the earth. If you’ve ever watched a free roam Chicken running about, it, indeed, looks like a miniature version of the long lost reptilian-like Dinosaurs of a bygone era. When you think of Chicken as a Guide, think of a small creature with a powerful inner being, which will help you strut your stuff and walk with pride.
Female Chickens will lay many eggs over a year, so you’ll have a lot of ongoing minor projects. The hens turn eggs over upwards of fifty times each day, so you’ll be overturning every stone to ensure the success of all the projects or “eggs” you’ve got in your nest. Your memory will prove sharp in July too, and you can count on never forgetting a face; your Animal Spirit is quite skilled in remembering the faces of up to a hundred animals and humans.
While you may often be shy about expressing yourself, Chicken, as your Animal Companion, can support you in finding the right words to say exactly how you feel. The creature has over thirty unique vocalizations it uses to interact and communicate with other hens. Your Animal Ally also supports you when you want to keep emotions from overwhelming you; when the creature bathes, it does so in a small, dug up pit of dirt so it can use the dust to clean up their oily feathers. As such, you’ll receive energetic support in remaining grounded and not letting emotional waters rule your intellect.
The vision of your Animal Spirit Guide is impeccable (pun intended). The creature can see ultraviolet light and a range of green, blue, and red light waves that humans cannot. Here, your Animal Companion helps you tap into the psychic skill of Clairvoyance. You may experience visions or be able to see surrounding conditions with greater clarity than usual.
Leo Spirit Animalscope: Oyster
You discover a deep love for all beautiful things, Leo: This is especially true when you recognize the small, hidden treasures in your life regarding projects, finances, personal relationships, and spiritual pursuits. It’s all because the Oyster enters your reality as your wise and wonderful Animal Spirit Guide.
In some ancient Greek stories, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, stands on an oyster shell as she emerges from the oceanic waters during her birth. So, Oyster is an Animal Spirit Guide announcing a focus on love when it enters your reality! If you’re in an existing relationship, Leo, Oyster arrives to let you know you have a deepening love and that, hidden feelings that you’ve locked up (like an oyster in its shell) are something you’ll want to reveal to your romantic partner. If you’re single, you’ll meet someone who will prove an ideal mate – a longing for someone will intensify, giving you the feeling you have no other choice than to give intimacy a chance.
Oysters can change from male to female; here, your Animal Ally points to the importance of balance in all things and putting an equal focus on Yin (Feminine) and Yang (Masculine) Energies. In July, you’ll want to achieve perfect harmony between being active and receptive, assertive, and open. Achieving this state of being should be easy enough; Oysters better water bodies because they consume algae and act as Nature’s filtering system, weeding out unnecessary nutrients and particles in the water. Oyster’s action makes the environment healthier for other organisms. You’ll find the ability to work within the confines of the energetic atmosphere, while simultaneously making conditions comfortable and supporting those who connect with you.
If you’ve been experiencing an emotionally difficult time, Oyster arrives to help you ensure those tumultuous waters don’t threaten to overwhelm you. When the ocean is affected by stormy weather, forming wave after wave of incoming, rising waters, Oyster reefs serve as barriers and protect the surrounding land along the water’s edge. Part of Oyster Medicine is learning how to deal with emotions little by little, at your own pace, while also preventing the erosion of your mental well-being.
Virgo Spirit Animalscope: Echidna
Like your Animal Spirit Guide, the Echidna, you are brainy, bright, and rely heavily on intellect to manage your world and reality, Virgo. The Echidna is a creature with a large brain; half of its brain is the neocortex region, which governs one’s personality and ability to reason in humans. You’ll do a lot of contemplating, reflecting, analyzing, and deducting this month, whether you are dealing with emotional concerns or business and finance.
As strangely adorable as your Animal Spirit Guide might be, Virgo, Echidna is a no-nonsense creature much like yourself. The hairs all over the Echidna’s body are hollow and sturdy, serving as protective spines whenever the animal senses dangerous conditions. In July, if you feel your emotions or physical well-being threatened, Echidna suggests drawing inward and keeping a low profile until troubling situations pass; the creature rolls into a ball, allowing its spiny hairs to serve as a form of armor against predators.
You’ll also want to remain grounded and clear-headed; Echidna will sometimes dig a hole where it can hide. Here, part of the creature’s Medicine instructs you to stay level-headed, analytical and centered so you can rely on intellect to navigate through existing conditions. The creature uses its incredibly sharp claws for digging up the earth, so Echidna offers supportive energies if you find yourself having to dig up information or weed out fact from fiction before making big decisions. Echidna’s digging action may also suggest a period where you are digging into your family roots are trying to get to the heart of a complicated matter this month.
Echidnas are slow-moving creatures with slow metabolic processes and long-life spans. Your Animal Ally enters your life when its time to take things slower or even at your own comfortable pace. Echidna’s presence suggests there is no rush to get to where your life path is taking you, whether pursuing a dream or looking to jump all into an intimate relationship.
Libra Spirit Animalscope: Spider (The High Priestess)
When Spider weaves its web in one or several corners of your reality, you’ll have little issue finding the harmony you’re always striving for, Libra. In July, Spider comes to you as an Animal Spirit Guide supporting you, helping you to discover that ever-so-delicate balance between the mind, body, and spirit.
Imagine a silver cord running through all three of the latter, and that cord is made of Spider’s silky thread. And make no mistake about it, Libra, Spider’s thread is strong a steel. You’ll create a lasting balance in all worlds or realities; this means greater intuitiveness is yours, and your innate abilities will be on high alert, picking up psychic messages from your Guides and the Universe.
In July, you’ll feel you have far more control over your physical reality and emotions. When Spider weaves a web, it’s with perfection. The creature chooses the most advantageous position in its silky creation as it waits for what it wants to arrive. You, too, will find the creature supports you in developing the patience to wait for the things you desire to unfold, all while you establish a foundation for your goals and align your intentions to attract what you desire.
Imagine Spider’s web as nature’s most wonderous mandala – a sacred space you can use to reflect on the goals you set or the relationships you want to bring into being. Like a series of energetic pipes, this same web is something you can use to visualize the freeing up of blockages in your life, so positive energetic influences flow into every part of your worlds, both internal and external.
Your Animal Spirit Guide has poor far vision but excellent near vision. Part of Spider Medicine involves examining what’s closest to you, the small details, and using your intuitive abilities to predict the outcomes that lie ahead accurately. Spiders also have vision allowing them to detect both shadows and light. This month, you’ll have an opportunity to explore your Shadow Nature and how it can work with your Lighter Self for your spiritual evolution and psychological well-being. Finally, with a Spider having eight legs, you’ll find a more intense connection with the infinite; the number eight on its side forms a lemniscate, so you’ll have clear messages coming in from the Universe to guide you.
Scorpio Spirit Animalscope: Raven (The Magician)
You’re not much for giving away your deepest secrets, and in fact, you’re one of the best secret keepers of the zodiac, Scorpio, but so too is your Animal Spirit Guide, the lovely, ebony-colored Raven. Don’t be surprised if you’re extra protective of your ideas and intimate thoughts, and others may entrust you with the ideas or notions they want to shield away from outsiders. People will see you as a trustworthy confidant and even look to you for wise counsel throughout all the days of July.
Just Raven’s appearance conjures up images of moon-lit groves, magic, and great mysteries yet to unfold. Indeed, the Bird is often considered a Spirit Messenger, so don’t be surprised if your psychic senses are in high gear this month. Dreams, visions, and even meditations may prove insightful, offering you perfectly clear messages through easy to interpret symbols.
Raven soars into your reality to support you in creating the world you desire. On its wings come sparks of creativity, which trigger your inner muse to start working overtime! The Bird’s ability to ascend high into the sky draws you ever closer to the Universe, the source of all there is, and the very force you work with as a co-creator of reality. Be aware of your innermost intentions, Scorpio, for if there’s ever a time to watch what you wish for, it’s when Raven wings its way into your life.
You’ll find you seek higher truths and broader perspectives, and you’ll want to see the bigger picture before making any decisions this month. Thankfully, Raven supports you in gaining an aerial view of the world, conditions, and relationships. With the ability to see all interplaying elements, Raven empowers you to think critically and make wiser, more sound decisions.
Unlike the Crow, Ravens have a ruff of fluffy dark feathers protruding from the throat area. Here, Raven Medicine suggests focusing on the throat chakra to ensure it is clear of energetic blocks and open. Your Animal Ally is quite expressive, too, with the unique ability to mimic other creatures and human speech, so you’ll certainly have an easy way with words when you interact with others this month. The gift of persuasion is yours, Scorpio: Use it to your advantage, but use it wisely.
Sagittarius Spirit Animalscope: Silkworm
Yes, Sagittarius, you are quite the adventurous soul, and in July, you’ll find your exploits leaning toward the exploration of the unknown and the greater mysteries. You’ll feel more than content stepping beyond your comfort zone to examine new subjects of interest, especially when those subjects are something others consider “unusual” or “on the fringe.” In fact, for you, if something is unusual, seemingly forbidden, or even taboo, it’s all the more enticing. All of this interest stems from the arrival of the Silkworm as your Spirit Animal Guide this month.
As the name suggests, Silkworm produces the materials that create raw silk: A substance that is similar to the color of the moon and shimmers in the same way the lovely celestial body does as it makes its transit through the night sky. In July, you’ll find a greater interest in the Divine Feminine and Yin Energies, making you more open or receptive to new knowledge.
Just as the moon reflects the sun’s light, your contemplation of the deeper mysteries and the most puzzling questions of life is like taking in a giant drink of sunlight or enlightenment. The knowledge you gain is something you’ll reflect back into the world – at first, a student, you then become a teacher for others, perhaps even fine-tuning profound understandings through your personal lenses of experience.
A silkworm forms a cocoon to become a moth later. While safe inside the cocoon, the outer world doesn’t witness the miraculous changes within, only seeing such transformation when the Moth finally exits its safe, temporary abode. So too, will you undergo tremendous internal changes in July, Sagittarius, as your self-exploration and examination of arcane and hidden knowledge help you evolve into a wiser being. Do note, however, that breaking free from any cocoon is no easy feat, but it is one you must endure alone. With the strength and wisdom you uncover, you’ll make progress on your soul path and allow your spirit to take flight.
Capricorn Spirit Animalscope: Centaur
You may feel a bit out of sorts this month, Capricorn, because you’re going to be far more in touch with your wild side than usual – it’s all thanks to the Centaur as it makes a slow and steady trot into your reality. The Centaur is a creature that emerges from ancient Greek stories depicting a half-human and half-horse being. So, while you’ll still rely on your intellect to lead the way, you’ll feel something primal awakening in you, perhaps even demanding its release and freedom.
Chiron is one of the most well-known mythological Centaurs, so some of what you’ll be dealing with are the rise of long-held emotions you’ve been ignoring for quite some time. Chiron is the ‘Wounded Healer,” who supports you in facing your feelings while you get the closure you need to move forward absent of an old emotional code controlling your thinking, even if it’s subconsciously.
Journaling and meditating may help you make it through the month with greater ease, allowing you to pour out feelings on to paper or gain clarity through deep contemplation. Just know you’ve reached a critical point this month; you can’t turn away from what you must deal with, and you’re too far along your spiritual path to turn back now. There’s no getting over things, only through them, but Centaur Medicine supports you as you begin the healing process.
You may find your sex drive heightens considerably this month as well, Capricorn. Though you are practical about most things, you may be a bit more lustful than usual. It’s best if you try to keep yourself in check and to remain in balance as much as possible; don’t let your animal nature rule, but don’t bury your wildness either. Critical thinking before diving all into a physical connection with someone can ensure you get the best enjoyment out of romantic encounters.
Depictions of the Centaur vary, with as many as three different portrayals resulting in unique physical attributes. Sometimes the Centaur is human from the head to the waist with four horse legs and hooves. Other times, a Centaur features human traits that cease at the horse’s shoulder blades or withers. The third is a half horse, a half-human creature with two human legs and two horse legs. All of the latter portrayals may serve as a symbol of a Centaur having a three-fold nature. You, too, have the same attributes if you consider the mind, body, spirit connection. As such, Centaur arrives in your life when it’s time to acknowledge and address the neglected parts of the mind-body-spirit alignment.
Aquarius Spirit Animalscope: Raccoon (Page of Wands)
Don’t be surprised if you’re feeling particularly playful and even intrigued by every little thing this month, Aquarius. Raccoon scurries into your life, stirring up the fires of curiosity within! Your masked Animal Companion will have you equally interested in exploring your inner and outer worlds.
When it comes to your inner reality, Raccoon encourages trying on different masks for size – you may even find a desire to reinvent yourself and present a new face, look, or attitude to the world. Outside or external interests will likely involve an interest in innovations, clever concoctions, and things that make tasks in your every-day existence just a little bit easier to handle.
While Raccoons seem most memorable for their adorable faces, their hands are nimble, giving the creature impressive skills for handling all sorts of objects and, of course, getting into all sorts of mischief. Yes, Raccoons can wreak havoc in their physical environment as they scratch away and through obstacles to get to what they desire. Here, you may feel an intense desire for hands-on work, or to get your hands on the resources you need to launch a project successfully. You may also feel you literally have to scratch and claw a path to achieve your goals.
Raccoon supports you in the process, providing you with the energetic influences of greater determination and tenacity. You may also be surprised that you’ll see situations and conditions with far greater clarity than usual. That lovely black mask on your Animal Ally’s face is more than just for its cute looks! The black mask absorbs light, thereby minimizing any blinding glare and allow the creature to have superior vision.
So, Raccoon supports you in seeing “the glaring truth” of conditions or discovering bits of valuable information that you’ll need to make decisions, perhaps even seeing elements you might have missed before. If you decide to study the mysteries, Raccoon has fantastic night vision, being nocturnal creatures. Here, Raccoon supports you in making sense of clouded issues and the complexities so prevalent in the study of arcane knowledge.
Pisces Spirit Animalscope: Mantis Shrimp
Your natural penchant for being a wall-flower and standing safely on the sidelines of life is challenged this month, Pisces, all because of the entrance of your Spirit Animal Guide, the Mantis Shrimp. Immediately, your Animal Ally arrives, telling you to let your inner self shine, stand out, and to allow others to see the beauty of your unique personality. Mantis Shrimp has a soft interior and has a protective hard shell, but that exterior is colorful, vibrant, and visually impossible to miss. There’s little chance for hiding in the shadows or escaping into internal worlds for emotional safety, Pisces, not as long as Mantis Shrimp lends its energetic support!
Not to worry, though, you won’t be as vulnerable as you might think. In fact, your Animal Ally will likely make you feel braver than usual. These creatures have two powerful claws which they use to protect themselves with – these same claws are quite destructive when used for defense, smashing and clubbing away at any would-be predator. Mantis Shrimp earned the nickname of “Thumb Splitter” for a good reason. If anyone figuratively steps on your toes, you’ll release your inner wild and let them know all about it!
You’ll still have a desire to remain safe away from crowds and prefer isolation. You’ll also have a desire to keep anything that you consider “your territory” safe from external influences. Should there come a time that you need to escape from the external fray, Mantis Shrimp supports you in finding a safe hideaway where you can keep your emotional world secure from unwanted harm.
In July, you’ll be able to see the complexities in a relationship with greater clarity than ever. Your Animal Spirit Guide has two eyes that move independently of one another. Both eyes can see three times more colors than humans, so you’ll be able to pick up on people’s “shaded or colored” emotions with ease. This month, it’s possible to look to the external world and see it in “living color,” giving you the sense of being more alive, awakened, and instilling you with a readiness to take on the world. So clear is your Animal Companion’s vision, it can react instantaneously to the visual information it receives; here, Mantis Shrimp supports you in making rapid-fire decisions on the fly.
