Overview: Puffin (The Fool)
September, we’ll take a happy-go-lucky approach to life. Opportunities await! An equal mix of enticement and risk comes with what lies ahead. Still, we’re more than ready to embrace whatever comes our way. No matter how unsure we may feel about what the future holds, we know we’re at the precipice of a new adventure.
Puffin flies in as our Animal Spirit Guide. Puffin is the “Clown of the Sea,” appearing when it’s time to joyfully put doubt aside. Now’s the time to have a few laughs and just dive into what life brings our way! Just like the Puffin when it takes to wing, our first precarious steps toward our next quest might be awkward. But there’s something inside of us, instinct and intuition, urging us to fly. When Puffin arrives, the creature encourages us to remain enthusiastic, bold, and brave. Puffin says, “Take that a leap of faith.”
We’ll need to listen to the small voice within. Our internal compass is more accurate than any other guide available to us. Intuition will never lead us astray. Fledgling Puffins spend eight months out to sea. But, eventually, they find their way back to their native shore; this may have to do with the recently discovered bioluminescence of their beak. We too, know somehow the journey we embark on will bring us full circle. It will make us better, more knowledgeable, and more experienced than before.
As the colder months approach and breeding season ends, the beak and feet of Puffin begin to dull in color. We may feel the shifting of the seasons within ourselves too as summer fades into fall and the light continues to wane. But Puffin reminds us to remain happy and hopeful as the future unfolds.
Interactions with others will go smoothly this month; Puffins are skilled communicators and use body language to express mood. With Puffin as a Spirit Guide, we’ll find others more transparent than before. Likewise, those around us will know where we stand and our true intentions. Whatever we do in September, we’re able to gaze upward, smile, puff out our chest, and do it proudly.
Spirit Animalscopes for All 12 Zodiac Signs
Aries Spirit Animalscope: Raccoon (Page of Wands)
Raccoon scurries in as your Animal Ally this month, encouraging you to awaken your sleeping inner child. In September, you’re going to feel particularly creative, and may even try out different artistic mediums of expression. Just as Raccoon presents itself to the world wearing an adorable mask, you’ll spend time exploring who we really are. This month, it’s time to decide how you plan to express your uniqueness.
You’ll have no problem making decisions in September, especially when working with Raccoon’s energies. Raccoon always knows exactly what it wants and doesn’t hem and haw over how its going to get it! You’re ready to seize the moment – seize the day – and you’ll refuse to take your eye off the prize until it’s yours. Just be careful you don’t step on other people’s toes doing so. Your exuberance is admirable as long as you aren’t hurting others in the process. If you’re feeling unsure of yourself when opportunities arise, Raccoon steps in to tell you not to worry. Don on a mask, smile, and “Fake it until you make it!”
One of the masks you’ll wear this month is that of the guide or mentor. When you do, you’ll help others discover themselves and encourage them to embrace their individuality. Raccoon brings you the wisdom you need to be supportive of those who, like yourself, are looking to find their “true self.” You may also encounter people who hide behind masks as they conceal their motives. Raccoon energies empower you to see through the disguise so you can easily spot hidden agendas. By the way, the word “Raccoon” comes from “mapachitli” – Aztec for “One who takes everything in its hands.” With this delightfully masked creature as your Spirit Animal Guide in September, you’ll have no problem handling anything that comes your way.
Taurus Spirit Animalscope: Black Panther (Queen of Wands)
When Black Panther silently steps into your life this month, you’ll be at the top of your game, feeling wildly independent, strong, and enthusiastic. There’s nothing that can stop you as you pave your way to success. With Black Panther as your Animal Ally, your creativity peaks as you open yourself to the messages coming from your Muses.
Your aura exudes an air of mystery. Your psychic senses also heighten as you connect with the shaman and holistic healer within. The Full Moon will prove an especially powerful time as your link to the Divine Feminine deepens. People around you will respect you because you’ve earned it. You may be called to fill a leadership role, as people are drawn to the natural power and control you exude.
With Black Panther being a stealthy climber, you’ll have no trouble climbing your way to the top. You’ll take the lead, whether it’s in your career, or as the head of your family social circle. Black Panthers carry their young in the womb for three months, so any projects you begin now will bear the first signs of fruit in as little as 90 days.
Black Panther is not only an excellent climber, but your Animal Ally loves taking to water too. This Animal’s Medicine helps you explore deep, hidden, and long-ignored emotions so you can bring them out into the silvery moonlight for examination and healing.
If, for any reason, you find yourself in a toxic or difficult relationship, Black Panther arrives to help you camouflage yourself in a cloak of invisibility. The creature assists you in finding a safe place where you can heal and restore your emotional strength. Black Panther comes to support you when standing strong on your own and asserting yourself. When you need to say, “No,” you’ll do it with the empowerment of Black Panther energies vibrating through your soul.
Gemini Spirit Animalscope: Firefly (Six of Wands)
Firefly flies into your world this month, Gemini, to help you find your inner light and let it shine. And yes, your Animal Ally is all about helping you express your individuality! The lovely little Firefly’s light is green, but there are some species that glow red, orange, and yellow too. The range of colors suit you well in September; the hues are perfect as you experience the seasonal transition from summer to fall.
Firefly’s light is bioluminescent: A chemical reaction generating light in the most efficient manner possible. Firefly teaches you it takes very little to make your light visible to the rest of the world. When it comes to the Firefly, a creature who only generates light within the visible light spectrum, what you see is what you get. Here, the lesson from Firefly is to be proud of who you are exactly as you are.
When Firefly arrives as an Animal Ally, you’re finally experiencing the long-awaited victory you’ve been waiting for. The tiny creature reminds you to cherish the small wins in life. You can expect good fortune, blessings, recognition, and rich compensation for your hard work, loyalty, and dedication.
You’ve been “a shining” example for others, and it’s your turn to stand proudly in the limelight. You can expect multiple synchronicities as the Universe gives you small clues showing you that you’ve been on the right path all along. Since Fireflies are lightning bugs, you can also expect some lightning strikes of inspiration!
Cancer Spirit Animalscope: Coyote (The Moon)
Your Animal Ally this month is a Trickster so that you can expect quite a few surprises from Coyote. Not to worry, Coyote reminds you that even when you’re experiencing difficult life transitions, you should remain light of heart. A little laughter goes a long way in making trials easier to endure and its laughter that’s part of Coyote’s powerful Medicine.
When Coyote steps into your reality, it’s a period where you’ll tear through illusion; Coyote knows its way through the darkened woods. It will lead you out of the thick, frightening, forest when you, yourself, cannot see the forest through the trees. The stealthy creature empowers with the ability to adapt to conditions around you.
Coyotes are incredibly independent, going from guarded pup to hunting alone in a mere six months after they are born. Plus, in the US, some Coyotes are so clever; they’ve learned how to respond to traffic lights so they can avoid injury when crossing the street. As such, Coyote brings you the lessons of endurance and cunning to ensure your survival during trying times.
Coyote, or the American Jackal, is a vocal Animal Ally, that barks, yips, whimpers, yelps, and growls to convey what’s on its mind. Working with Coyote energies helps improve your ability to communicate and sense the motives of others. The creature’s heightened sense of smell and hearing link to the psychic senses Clairalience and Clairaudience. This will allow you to sniff out peoples’ agendas and hear what’s not said directly or remains unspoken.
Coyote teaches you the art of shapeshifting, and how to uncover the truth that’s unadulterated by human fallacy, beliefs, and perception. With Coyote as Your Animal Guide, you’ll also learn how to enjoy every moment, live in the “now,” and how to marvel at everyday miracles. Coyote is crepuscular and diurnal, meaning it is most active during between times: dusk and dawn. Walk with Coyote and the creature reminds you to enjoy the sunrise and sunset each day.
Leo Spirit Animalscope: Pekin Duck (The Sun)
With Pekin Duck as your Animal Guide, you’ll feel like the sun is shining down on you while showering you with one blessing after another. You’ll have no problem getting things organized either, Leo, since Duck will literally help you “get all your ducks in a row.” Now is also the time to take on new tasks, classes, and pastimes, since you’ll adapt as easily as “a duck takes to water.” You won’t have to worry about testing the temperature of the water since Duck’s webbed feet are absent of blood vessels or nerves. As such, your surroundings are never too cold or uncomfortable to endure.
As you make the most of the daylight hours all through the month, you’ll find you actually increase the blessings coming your way. The longer Mother Ducks are exposed to light, even if it is artificial, the more eggs they end up laying. This month, you’ll truly be able to “see the light” in situations or relationships that were seemingly ambiguous or dark. Ducks have a near 360-degree field of vision allowing them to see almost everything there is to see in their surroundings. Plus, with Ducks being about to see both far and near at the same time, your ability to make on the spot decisions will be at an all-time high.
Duck’s powerful guidance may come to you through dreams this month, since the creature literally sleeps with one eye open. With this bird as your Animal Spirit Guide, you’ll have a companion that’s on constant guard, alerting you to people in your circle that may not be honest or trustworthy. Your psychic senses will serve you well, allowing you to enjoy the month ahead without a care in the world.
In September, when you walk with Duck, you’ll feel your inner child awaken, and you’ll see all the magic in life once more. Your timing is perfect, and you’ll find opportunities just seem to fall into your path. Your disposition is bright, and your joy is downright contagious!
Virgo Spirit Animalscope: Octopus (King of Cups)
You’ll feel like your mind is blazing with information this month, Virgo. You’re already analytical nature is heightened even further with the arrival of Octopus as your Animal Spirit Guide. Your memory is ultra-sharp, near-photographic, and you’ll be looking to soak up as much knowledge as possible.
As part of the learning process, you may try to perceive what it’s like to walk in the shoes of others. Your Animal Companion is a master at mimicking other creatures like lionfish and sea snakes. By “relating” to others in an empathetic way, it gives you an opportunity to detect their motives.
Your empathy will be at an all-time high too since your Animal Companion has not one, not two, but three hearts pumping blood to its body and each of its lungs. The number three relates to spirituality: A concept you’ll explore in-depth throughout the month. As you discover your sacred self within, you’ll also feel an urge to create sacred spaces for yourself in your external environment. Octopi gather up shiny stones and objects and purposefully place them along the ocean floor to create their own aquatic Zen Garden.
With Octopus empowering you this month, you’ll certainly express your individuality and walk to your own rhythm. When the creature uses six of its legs to propel itself along the ocean floor, there’s no rhyme or reason in its movement. It just moves in whatever way it chooses. But, one thing’s for certain: Octopus will bring you closer to the Divine Feminine since it moves along the ocean’s floor as it navigates the shadowy oceanic waters.
Libra Spirit Animalscope: Shark (The Devil)
With Shark as your Spirit Animal Guide this month, Libra, you might be a bit unnerved, at least at first. With your life motto being “balance” and your desire for constant harmony, the mighty Shark might intimidate you a bit. But the arrival of the Shark is likely to help you restore yourself to a position of balance or to help you maintain the harmony you’ve managed to achieve.
Sharks are highly sensitive creatures with the ability to smell something from more than two miles away. Their hearing is equally impeccable as they can detect the sound of splashing from 500 meters away. With Shark as your Animal Spirit, your physical senses will be on red alert. So, will your psychic senses like Clairalience and Clairaudience which will also help you sense your environment and the people in it.
If you’ve been avoiding dealing with old emotional wounds, Shark can help you navigate through them. Shark’s vision is ten times better than that of people, so part of the creature’s Sacred Medicine is to help you see clearly what you’ve been avoiding. Not to worry, though, Shark is also an Animal Companion that ensures your deepest secrets remain safe. Some species of Shark have managed to keep their sacred birth and mating rituals a complete mystery, even today.
Sharks also know when you need to assert yourself and when you should keep a low profile. The creatures will enter a state of tonic immobility where they are temporarily paralyzed for a period of fifteen minutes at a time when they end up on their back. If you lose your footing and need a brief period to recover, working with Shark’s energy will offer you the time you need.
This month you may find things that aren’t all that good for you as tempting, Libra. It will pay for you to remember your desire for balance, but if you need a little extra willpower, Shark will be able to help. Shark, as an Animal Companion, will empower you to break free from habits that hold you back and to avoid behaviors that may have lasting, negative effects.
Scorpio Spirit Animalscope: Scorpion (Nine of Wands)
In September, you may find yourself needing to adapt to harsh conditions or situations. Thankfully, Scorpion comes along to help! Your Animal Ally is capable of living off a single meal for as long as a year and holding its breath for a full six days. The creature, therefore, lends you the ability to wait things out, until better days or timing arrives, all while teaching you the true blessings you derive from patience.
Scorpions use the sunlight and moonlight to help them navigate when the lighting in their environment is low. As such, your Animal Companion will not only increase your interests in astrology and celestial happenings but will help you attune to solar and lunar energies which represent the Masculine and Feminine Divine. Your psychic senses are finely tuned when walking with Scorpion, particularly clairsentience, allowing you to feel the vibrations in your surroundings.
There’s a type of Scorpion identified as a pseudo-Scorpion which resides inside of older books, so don’t be surprised if you’re feeling like a bookworm this month! It’s a great time to polish off those novels you’ve meant to read, especially during Banned Book Week at the end of the month. Also, this month you’ll shine, especially when you enter into the limelight; Your Animal Ally glows whenever it’s exposed to Ultraviolet light; because of this, you’ll focus on your spirituality and growth so you can let your soul shine too!
Sagittarius Spirit Animalscope: Hyena (Ten of Swords)
Your Animal Ally may play a trick or two on you this month, Sagittarius, just to keep a smile on your face. Hyena struts in to help empower you with strength during an otherwise trying emotional time. Whether you’re dealing with the loss of a job or loved one, there’s a disappointment on the horizon. Hyena comes to remind you how the power of laughter helps you heal, and that the bleakest hours will pass; Remember this; there is no darkness without light.
You may betray yourself when Hyena appears. So, you’ll have to consider if you have been blocking yourself from receiving all the blessings you are so deserving of or if your denial about a situation chains you in place. Your willingness to accept less than what you deserve is not acceptable to Hyena; the creature knows just how draining emotional anguish can be. Hyena comes with the message that this is no time to take things lying down. You’ll need to pull yourself out of the emotional storm you’re dealing with so you can walk beneath the sun’s warm and happy rays once more.
Hyena teaches you about the power of truth and acceptance; that no matter how harsh the truth may be, accepting it is the key to your freedom from emotional chains. It’s is no time to behave like a martyr or to sacrifice your peace because you embrace suffering and victimization as your source of power. Hyena says let go, find your freedom, and open the energetic pathways that will allow you to appreciate blessings again.
Capricorn Spirit Animalscope: Rooster (Three of Wands)
When Rooster enters your realm this September, it’s time to wake up and embrace everything life has to offer. Your motto for the month is the “early bird does, indeed, get the worm,” so jumping on opportunities as they arrive is your main priority. Of course, with Rooster as your friendly Animal Ally, you’ll have no trouble seeing all the fine blessings coming in along with the rising sun. If you do, Rooster is sure to cry out and announce the dawning of the new opportunities to come!
Rooster can see near and far simultaneously, so you’ll be able to see the finer details of a situation while taking in the bigger picture. Your life will seem light, happy, and colorful too since your Animal Guide can see light waves you cannot. Plus, Rooster’s eyes work independent of one another, allowing one eye to keep an eye on the prize while the other ensures the creature’s safety. As your Spirit Guide, Rooster empowers you to do the same. You’ll be able to enjoy the blessings coming to you without fear of emotional injury.
Rooster encourages you to take pride in every step you take, but to keep your ego in check when doing so. Yes, you are experiencing a time where you are blessed, but you don’t want to make others feel small by comparison. Your Animal Guide is territorial, so you might be tempted to get a little pushy when asserting your boundaries. Remember, you don’t have to scream to make your voice heard in September, the sound of your Animal Companion carries a great distance with ease.
Aquarius Spirit Animalscope: Walrus (Eight of Cups)
When walrus swims into your existence, it’s a sign you are about to take a bite out of what life has to offer. Walrus is definitely experienced and “long in the tooth,” so you’d be wise to turn to mentors for advice before you embrace the opportunities that lie ahead. You can practically taste the win that awaits, but with Walrus bellied up, it’s time to take a step back and await additional information coming in before making any move.
You can bet you’ll have little trouble remaining alert in September, especially when working with Walrus’ energies. The creature can remain awake for more than three days before requiring rest. Your high energy level is best put to use dealing with day-to-day obligations and tying up loose ends. It will free you from the chains of everyday tasks and allow you more room to tackle that project or go on that quest you’re about to embark on without any hindrances.
Since Walrus’ tusks are indicative of the creature’s status, you’ll be focusing on your social status this month. You’ll be concerned with your popularity overall and how you might increase the size of your social circle. One thing is for certain: You won’t have any trouble whatsoever getting others to respect you; Walrus energies allow you to take on a larger than life position while boosting your confidence.
Pisces Spirit Animalscope: Macaw (The World)
As the Macaw flies into your reality this month, you’ll find you want to spread your wings, fly, and take plans to the next level. You’re looking to live life and enjoy everything in vivid color. No more gray skies for you, Pisces, and you can bet you’ll cast aside your natural introversion!
Macaw Medicine helps you discover your voice after you’ve tried mimicking the voice of others. It wasn’t a waste of time to sample the voice of other people. In fact, it gave you a chance to search yourself to discover who you really are; it is this discovery that leads to finding your authenticity.
Macaw is an early bird, rising first thing in the morning, and why not? Its lovely feathers deserve to soak up every ray of the sun. If you’ve been down on your luck, you’ll resurrect yourself in September. It’s a time of completion and renewal. You’ll not only discover who you are, but you’ll find you endure a spiritual transformation as you take the next, fresh steps on your soul’s journey!
