Overview: Warthog (Two of Cups)
No matter what demands we encounter this month, we’ll have the energy, wisdom, and determination to surmount impossible odds. Why? Because Warthog comes running in as our Animal Spirit Guide for October! Warthog trusts its instincts and is ever mindful when sniffing out potential dangers in the air. The creature brings the lesson of observation, awareness, and how to protect ourselves should the need arise.
In situations or relationships where adaptation is necessary, we can learn much from Warthog’s teachings. Our Animal Ally doesn’t make much fuss about its home environment, as it uses an aardvark’s former den as its home. Here, Warthog teaches us we can make our home anywhere and that we can transform any area, condition, or relationship into something sacred for ourselves.
We may seek the truth in a matter this month when our instincts tell us there’s something amiss. Our Animal Ally also shares the gifts of persistence and perseverance, so we won’t give up seeking the truth until we find it. Not to worry, Warthog shows us how to dig up hidden bits of information, allowing us to make empowered judgment calls.
Warthog’s sense of smell lets it find the food it needs for survival. Even when such sustenance is deep within the earth, our Animal Guide sniffs out exactly what it needs to ensure its growth and satisfaction. This month, we may feel we are somehow incomplete or we need to feed our mind, body, and soul. We too will find it easy to discover the spiritual truths we need to heal and make ourselves whole.
We’ll be making amends in many relationships in October. Besides seeing others as transparent, we’ll get a good look at our authentic selves. In understanding our true nature, we recognize our all-too-fallible humanness in ourselves and others. Warthog knows “To err is human, to forgive is divine.” When someone vexes us in some unforgivable way, Warthog reminds us of what unconditional love means: Loving without limits, warts and all.
Spirit Animalscopes for All 12 Zodiac Signs
Aries Spirit Animalscope: Flamingo (Two of Wands)
Think of the autumnal leaves and all the colors of the coming harvest on Halloween, Aries, and you’ll understand the colorful message of your Animal Ally this month. Flamingo’s gorgeous pink plumage is the creature’s hallmark. When this Bird flies in as your Animal Spirit Guide, it helps you navigate through life in a state of harmony and grace!
When you have something important to share with the world, Flamingo encourages you to find your voice. Once you do, shout out your message from the highest mountaintops! Others will embrace your message for its originality and see you as a true pioneer or visionary.
Flamingo is graceful but also says it’s okay to be a little flashy when the occasion calls for it. Flamingo comes to support you whenever you’re looking to express your uniqueness and individuality. The creature encourages you to express yourself through color, whether it’s with what you wear, in decorating your work or home environment, or in experimenting with different creative mediums.
The Flamingo is a social creature and a team player. It knows “Rome wasn’t built in a day” and nor was it built by one person. Socialization and the ties you create when interacting with others are essential to success. So, this month you’ll want to make mingling with like-minded folks a focus for yourself. If you receive an invitation to a gathering, make sure you attend. It will lead to new friendships and a chance to network with some real movers and shakers.
Finally, Flamingo shares the ever-important lesson of spreading the love: This includes loving others and yourself. How lucky for you, Aries! Flamingo’s appearance this month means there are many days ahead where you’ll be absolutely tickled pink!
Taurus Spirit Animalscope: Goat (Six of Pentacles)
You’ll find no trouble keeping yourself in balance this month, Taurus. You can thank your Animal Spirit Guide, the Goat, for a beautiful sense of peace, harmony, and confidence. When Goat arrives as your Animal Ally, it promises a month of success and satisfaction. You may even achieve new heights in your career or take a love relationship to the next level. Self-confidence peaks and you experience a deep sense of self-love.
When Goat appears as your Animal Ally, it’s a time for looking ahead, not backward. The Goat’s rectangular pupils allow the creature to see nearly everything thanks to a 340-degree range of vision. But the one thing it doesn’t see is whatever is right behind it. Here, Goat teaches you to release the past as it only serves to hold you back from a future of wonderful promise.
All through October, you’ll need to relax and take your sweet time incubating ideas. Your Animal Ally has four stomachs, which means it takes a bit of time for it to digest what it consumes. As such, you’ll want to take time to ruminate on your thoughts before you act on them; And yes, the pun is intended! Doing so ensures that when you are ready to move on an idea, you’ve got a well-developed plan for getting things off the ground.
You’re bound to have some pretty lofty thoughts in October. Such thoughts may have to do with your career, love relationships, or even your spirituality. Whatever the case may be, know you’re on your way to achieving great heights in whatever you pursue. Goats are steady, strong climbers. Your Animal Companion arrives to help you find your path and remain sure-footed the entire month through. Some of Goat’s greatest assets are its strength and agility. Here, the creature helps you tap into your talents, and offers instruction on how to adapt to any conditions, no matter how “rocky” or rough.
Gemini Spirit Animalscope: Bear (Queen of Pentacles)
The month of October is a period where you’ll be drawing some serious lines in the sand, Gemini. With the entry of Bear as your Animal Spirit Guide, it’s time to let others know what’s yours. Define what you’re willing and not willing to tolerate and who you’ll allow into your world. Bear, as an Animal Ally, means you’ll be protective of all you value and refuse to accept less than the abundant, happy, safe, and stable reality you desire. Anyone who poses a threat to your security is really poking the bear!
Your Animal Companion hibernates during the colder months. Among Bear’s lessons and medicine is the ability to understand dream messages for life improvement and healing. You’ll also learn of the benefits of stillness, solitude, frequent meditation, and regular periods of rest. When the world is chaotic all around you, your Animal Ally shows you how to discover safety and peace within.
In October, you’ll find your intuition heightens, as does your courage and strength. Bear’s instincts serve as its guide for survival in the wild. So, your ability to tap into and use your psychic senses will help you navigate through the “wild elements” in your life. Bear is the “Primal Mother,” and its appearance point to the importance of self-nurturing, caring for others, and connecting with the Divine Feminine.
Oh, and let’s not forget the sweet tooth of your Animal Companion! It’s a perfect time to embrace the sweetness of life, but you’ll want to monitor your sweets intake, especially with all the all-too-tempting Halloween candy everywhere! A treat here or there is okay but avoid extremes!
Cancer Spirit Animalscope: Gorilla (Seven of Wands)
You’ll put your defenses up during October, Cancer. Vulnerabilities make you uncomfortable, and you only let a few people into your emotional world. With your Animal Spirit Guide as the Gorilla, you can take comfort in knowing there isn’t anyone who will break down the walls you put up: At least not until you’re ready to let someone know you on a more intimate level. You’ll be compassionate with others, but when you’re in protective mode, you’ll have no problem asserting yourself!
Your Animal Companion is large, so it has no problem making a stand whenever it’s necessary. Gorilla’s bold and mighty presence may clash with your natural introversion. But, with Gorilla as your Spirit Guide, you’ll find the creature helps you come out of that shell you hide in when things get tough. There will be no side-stepping conflict now. All you can do is face everything head-on. It’s a time where you’ll see challenges of your mettle crop up one after another.
Don’t mistake your Animal Companion’s brute strength as a sign you’ll have to force your way through every situation. Instead, Gorilla comes in as a teacher who helps you see when a situation calls for diplomacy or when conditions require brute force. The creature encourages balance in all things and to refrain from extremes unless their necessity becomes absolute. Gorilla is a “gentle giant” using force when there is no other alternative. The creature says, “Taking the soft or easy option leaves one’s options open!”
Leo Spirit Animalscope: Dragonfly (Eight of Wands)
With the Dragonfly as your Spirit Animal Guide in October, you’ll feel you’ve found the end of the rainbow and the pot of gold beneath it, Leo! Despite the days getting shorter and the nights getting longer, you’ll still feel you’re basking in warm light. It’s like you’re enjoying your days of power in the summer Sun. Of course, the Sun is your ruling planet. Its rays shine, bringing one blessing after another into your life.
Dragonfly’s appearance marks a period of speedy action and busyness. You’ll feel unparalleled ease of movement, even when things are moving fast. If a change of direction comes up, you’ll navigate it like a true master. Anything you launch now will take flight and lead to great success. Any test you encounter you’ll pass with flying colors! Just be patient with all you do. Dragonfly’s iridescent wings don’t have their lovely color right away.
Because Dragonfly’s exquisite hues develop over time, the creature is an emblem of transformation. The teaching here is it takes time for things to achieve a level of maturity. The lesson of Dragonfly also applies to how you define who you are. There’s no rushing perfection. Have faith in knowing Dragonfly leads you to a place of emotional, mental, and spiritual growth where your authentic nature develops into something extraordinary.
The Sun reflects on Dragonfly’s wings, causing light to refract and produce specific colors. It influences your behavior and attributes, Leo, coloring your personality in particular ways. October is a period where you’ll experience enlightenment. Once you do, your mind expands, your spirit warms, and you can share your nurturing nature and wisdom with the rest of the world. In October, you’ll be able to embrace new experiences with a light heart and total peace of mind!
Virgo Spirit Animalscope: Seal (Ten of Cups)
Seal’s arrival as your Animal Spirit Guide for October means the month is full of happiness and blessings, Virgo! No matter what you’ve been dreaming of or working on, you’ll see the fruits of your labor now. Negotiations are successful, and contracts are signed, sealed, and delivered! You may feel you’ve won the Universe’s seal of approval in October. Obstacles fall away, and your happily-ever-after looks more like a reality with each passing day.
As you watch many of your dreams unfold, it will be a period for reassessment. Now that some of your goals have reached fulfillment, it’s time to redefine what true happiness means. In October, your greatest challenge is to question what it is you’ll do next. A full life review may be necessary here. You’ll need to examine your current emotional status. The task is something your Animal Ally can help with as it spends a lot of time in the realm of water. When you need to explore long-hidden emotions, Seal can help you navigate the way.
Attuning to your Higher Self will also help you clarify the next move on life’s path. The attentive nature of Seal will help you discover unidentified talents and creativity, all while showing you how to trust your inner compass to serve as your guide. Meanwhile, your Animal Ally will encourage you to create some time in your life to experience sheer joy through play.
Seal arrives when you need to simplify your life. Whether you need to clear out the old clutter or let go of situations no longer serving you, Seal shows you the benefits of cutting unnecessary ties. The creature has a down-to-earth, undemanding lifestyle that, if you model, will lead to considerable content and happiness. Your Animal Ally makes time to play and so should you.
Libra Spirit Animalscope: Lion (Strength)
Though normally the diplomat of the zodiac is ever in search of peace, balance, and harmony, you’ll have moments in October where you’ll have to tap into your core strengths, Libra. This is where Lion as your Animal Spirit Guide can help since the creature can help you call on your most noble attributes! When Lion strides into your life, it’s showing you how to take the lead, stand proud, and rise above the fray, all while remaining graceful, poised, and majestic in every sense.
When Lion appears, you’ll come to recognize every step, measure, reaction, emotion, and relationship has shaped who you are right now. You can, after an honest self-assessment, realize just how far you’ve come in your life. In looking back at the trials and tribulations you’ve endured, you’ll amaze yourself. Anything you once questioned, you begin to understand, and it seems as if your entire life is finally coming together.
With balance as your life motto, you’ll have no trouble taking on a leadership role at work or in intimate relationships. You’ll feel as if you have the wisdom of King Solomon to guide you through any situation because the lesson and medicine of Lion helps you tune into your psychic senses and Higher Self. Dream messages are more vivid now, and it’s an ideal time for you to master lucid dreaming techniques if you so desire.
Scorpio Spirit Animalscope: Fly (Five of Swords)
You may be dealing with pesky people or conditions this month, Scorpio, especially when Fly is your Animal Spirit Guide. But not to worry; the creature teaches you how to be resourceful and assertive when necessary. Really, Fly comes to teach you how to clean out the old in your life so there is plenty of room for the new.
Fly comes with the lesson that if you want something bad enough, you have to be willing to take a stand and claim it. Part of that process involves tying up loose ends in your life, freeing yourself of old emotional codes, and dealing with any lingering regrets. Flies carry disease unknowingly. This characteristic teaches you that negativity only breeds more negative, so it’s time to clear the air!
If you have been engaging in battle, Fly calls on you to question your motives. Sometimes anger or irritation triggers a disagreement, but then it’s possible to take things too far. Are you fighting with someone or for something and have lost sight for the reasons why? What price are you paying for the battle? Fly’s entrance into your life is a warning to take heed; refrain from trying to poison the life of others lest you poison your own.
When Fly enters your life, it is not a creature you can simply shoo away. Fly refuses to be ignored or dismissed. What you need to face will remain an obstacle until you deal with it. The Fly also comes to teach you how to look at existing problems for the lessons they provide. The creature has compound eyes allowing it to see with excellent clarity.
Sagittarius Spirit Animalscope: Elephant (Justice)
This month you’ll need to tune into your gut feelings and trust it, Sagittarius. Whatever is out of balance in your life is seeking resolution. Whether your love relationship is unharmonious, or you’re dissatisfied with your career, you’ll have some issues you need to plow through. You may be feeling nostalgic too, as old emotional codes bubble to the surface of your consciousness to demand your attention. Your Animal Spirit Guide, the Elephant, stomps into your life while bringing balance and Justice in its wake.
In October, your Animal Ally comes to teach you the importance of remaining true to yourself. If you’ve been in denial about your feelings or your future, Elephant encourages you to make an honest life assessment. This month calls for a cold hard look at choices, both past and present, as well as the ripple effect they have on everything you touch. Basically, your Animal Spirit Guide arrives to let you know you can no longer ignore the all-too-obvious Elephant in the room!
In relationships, you’ll bring things into balance. Elephant carries the lesson of trusting your instincts and the messages you receive from the Universe. If you’ve been at odds with one or more family members, this month you’ll make amends. In existing love connections, your relationship will be “just,” meaning you and your partner will treat each other as equals. In this balanced relationship, you will allow one another enough independence to ensure growth when you come together in a love connection.
Capricorn Spirit Animalscope: Squirrel (Ace of Wands)
Squirrel is your Animal Ally for October, Capricorn, so you can anticipate having an extremely busy work and personal schedule! Squirrel enters your life when it’s time to prepare for what lies ahead. The creature’s hurried movements are one you’ll likely mimic in October. You’ll also want to imitate how Squirrel stocks up on resources so you can build up your reserves for the coming months. In October, you’ll find your resourcefulness serves you well, as does your problem-solving skills and innovation.
When Squirrel scampers into your life it’s a time for seeing the results of your recent efforts, but it’s also a time of planning new endeavors. Now you’ll see tangible results from all your hard work and there’s no doubt you’ll achieve new heights in your career or in personal pursuits. But Squirrel also comes to remind you that it’s never too early to prepare for the next step, project, or venture. Yes, you’ve come full circle, but an ending leads right into a new beginning. Squirrel arrives to encourage you to remain flexible and to consider the new possibilities growing from your most recent accomplishments.
Squirrel is quite expressive and does not hesitate to use its vocalizations to convey exactly what it feels. So, your Animal Spirit Guide urges you to find your voice and to express your most intimate feelings. You may be stepping out of your comfort zone, but Squirrel comes to teach you the magic of Divine Utterance, and how words are just as powerful as your thoughts and intentions when it comes to manifesting your deepest desires.
Aquarius Spirit Animalscope: Bat (The Hanged Man)
During October, you may feel as if you’re in limbo, Aquarius, at least for a little while. That’s because your Animal Spirit Guide is the Bat. This month is a period of rest, recovery, inner journey work, and healing. You’ll be looking for plenty of personal space and may even desire isolation. In the stillness, you can collect your thoughts and discover internal peace. Not to worry, this is not a permanent state. When Bat enters your life, it’s because you need a little time away from all the chaos that day-to-day life and relationships can bring.
Bat encourages you to turn the focus on yourself and to make the most of this period by engaging in some self-discovery. It’s an excellent time to try out new creative mediums and forms of expression, but also a good time for writing in your journal, free writing, meditating, and doing trancework. Exploring your dreams for life-changing insights can also prove beneficial at this time. Since Bat is a creature representing the shadows and the Underworld, you may finally face some of your phobias or engage in some shadow work now.
Bats tune into the world through echolocation, which is equivalent to clairaudience or psychic hearing. Your Animal companion comes at a time where you’re more in tune with your intuition and can hear that small voice within with greater ease. It’s also a time where you can “hear” the answers when you enter stillness and silent modes of contemplation. When you do interact with others, you’ll have a greater sense of the energetic vibrations, so it makes for ease of communication and understanding in social situations.
Pisces Spirit Animalscope: Woodpecker (Eight of Swords)
In October, you may feel the urge to change directions or strike out on your own, Pisces. Woodpecker is your Animal Spirit Guide for the month, which calls you out of your emotional shell and encourages you to march to your own beat. Your Animal Ally can help you find your own rhythm and to cast aside any fear you have in expressing your individuality. Like Woodpecker, deep within, you’re longing for more and you know there’s much work ahead to achieve what you desire. Woodpecker comes to show you how to start pecking away at barriers until there are no more blocks remaining.
Woodpecker is a creature of great determination. Sometimes the creature mistakes a pole for a tree and will most stubbornly peck away at in hopes of getting what it wants-the nourishment hidden within. This tenacity and unwavering resolve are something the creature shares with you in its lessons, as you learn to dig in your heels and stand strong in the pursuit of all your dreams.
Like the skilled Shamans that ride the wave of a drumbeat into other dimensions and worlds, you too will find it easier to tap into the dream and psychic realms. Sacred drumming, trancework, and meditation may appeal to you more during October. All the latter methods are means for attuning yourself with the heartbeat of the earth and connecting with the Universe. The rhythms Woodpecker drums out trigger within you an awakening that opens your eyes to repeating patterns and cycles which you can identify, not only in your life but in the life of others.
