Center: The animal spirit that appears in the center of the Medicine Wheel reflects who you are at this point in time.

 
Coyote

Taking yourself too seriously? If you are, Coyote will throw a banana peel in your tracks just to see you take a silly spill. Coyote medicine is Trickster medicine—the practical joker, the chaos maker. If Coyote appeared in your reading today, be ready for a curveball thrown in your direction. Remember, though, Coyote uses the bizarre to help us learn lessons we just can't seem to get any other way.

 

 

North: The animal that appears in the North shows you how to walk your talk. Here lies your connection with your Higher Self.

 
Woodpecker

Wake up! Woodpecker is tired of trying to get your attention, and will peck and peck and peck until you hear the message. You have received the answer to a major question time and again, but refuse to act on it. It's okay to ignore a solution—but be forewarned that woodpecker will keep making racket until you make some movement forward!

 

 

East: This animal reveals the direction you need to take in order to gain clarity about your present situation.

 
Opossum

You’ve heard the expression “playing possum”? It means to play dead and is derived from Opossum’s ability to act in whatever way the situation demands. If it’s practical to play dead, so be it; if it’s to Opossum’s advantage to be aggressive, watch out! Take your cue from this master actor today—and play the role that will serve you best.

 

 

South: This animal explores issues dealing with your inner child, and shows the energy needed to trust your own process.

 
Moose

Moose represents incredible strength and longevity, as well as the ability to see the future. Moose antlers are among the largest of the antlered animals, and are like psychic antennae—giving Moose amazingly developed hearing, smell, and depth perception. Moose is bellowing at you to open your third eye and stop pretending that you don't know what's about to happen.

 

 

West: The animal that appears in the West holds the answer to your present challenge.

 
Horse

When Horse came back to the Americas, he brought with him the ability to move rapidly from place to place—and it's this rapid movement that he brings to you today. Get up, get out of the rut you've created. Grab Horse's mane, pull yourself onto his back and let him carry you across the plains of your life. The time for being stuck is over.
