Overview: Blue Heron
Blue Heron flies in as our Spirit Animal for September. The majestic Bird is an omen of good fortune, carrying in on its wings the uplifting message that the lull in our career or the turmoil with relationships is finally over. As we head into the fall season, the time for making progress again arrives, allowing us to see the light at the end of the seemingly endless tunnel.
It’s perfect timing for Heron’s arrival, seeing the Sun entered Virgo’s sign on August 22; it is here the Sun remains until Fall Equinox on September 22—It’s arrival is also symbolic, with daytime and nighttime of equal length, signifying the arrival of an energetic influence supporting the restoral of balance. The vibrations surrounding us are more practical, stable, and solid now, making it easier for us to reestablish our footing, whether it’s dealing with personal finances, career, family bonds, or in matters of love.
Ancient Egyptians saw our Animal Spirit Guide as a light bringer and positive omen. As if we’ve all been waiting with baited-breath, Heron enters our awareness to let us know we can breathe again. At the same time, Heron comes with the message that there’s no need to rush headlong back into our regular activities; we have the time to take things according to our own pace and let our intuition guide us along the paths we choose to follow.
If we’re traveling this month, Heron foretells of safe journeys ahead. As an Animal Spirit Guide, Heron also promises the return or entrance into a period of far greater prosperity than we’ve dealt with up until this point. There’s the promise for those out of work, on furlough, or looking for a brand new career. Where areas of our life seemingly went dormant, whether we wanted it to happen or not, Heron flies in to announce a reawakening at hand, one that comes with rewards for our perseverance during trying times.
Now, just as the Heron’s arrival announces the onset of greater harmony, our Animal Ally also comes with a caution—nothing remains in perfect balance forever. As we witness an upswing in our activities, a lifting of our moods and hopes, and improvement in our lives’ various aspects, we should also prepare ourselves for the long-term and any surprises along the way. If we’re to learn anything from the most recent difficulties the world has witnessed, the one lesson to walk away with is that we should conserve our resources. It ensures we don’t end up wanting the next time the world seemingly turns upside down, however long or brief the upset.
Regarding relationships and folks who are single, Heron arrives to support us in finding lasting, monogamous relationships. Suppose we’re already in an ongoing relationship with someone. In that case, Heron helps us intensify the emotional bonds that already exist while also showing us how to experience and share how we feel with grace, openness, and flexibility. If we’re single and not seeking a partner at this time, Heron’s support comes in self-exploration, discovery, and helping us become more accepting of our shadow nature.
In matters involving communication, Heron helps us choose our words with considerable care and make every interaction diplomatic. If we’ve been arguing with others, Heron tells us to rise, ascend, take the higher path, and find peace. Our Animal Spirit Guide comes to let us know the time for fighting one another or going against the tide ends; We’ll get far further if we strive for harmony as we wade through the waters of our ever-changing day-to-day existence.

When it comes to relationships you’ve been struggling with, Snake arrives to support you in dealing with broken bonds. But your Animal Ally also comes with the message that, sometimes, healing hurts before it feels better. You may go through growing pains, where you outgrow a friendship you once found solid and supportive, or you may endure some heartache after you realize it’s healthier to end an existing relationship than try to mend it.
