Use the traditional 12 sign astrological system for you daily spiritscope reading with the cards linked to your star sign and your choice from the deck. Or go modern style with the 13 zodiac signs including Ophiuchus the Serpent which changes the dates for each start sign.
Decide for yourself which is more accurate for you. Almost always inaccurately called the 13th Zodiac sign, Ophiuchus comes between Scorpio and Sagittarius, thus all the dates differ. The first and last dates of your new star sign typically overlap so you may wish to try both to determine which is most accurate for your nature but expect a blend of the two if you are on the cusp.
In the shaman’s worldview, animals have a magical interrelation with the cosmos and therefore with us also. In shamanism, the spirit of the animal has qualities and traits that can be attributed to human being.
When these animal spirit energies are passed to humans, it is said that it is the “power animal” of the person in question has been able to connect with its energy. These power animals can be the protective spirits destined to help us in our daily activities, as well as in the search for the spiritual path of our inner being. We could say that the power animal actually reflects the qualities of our inner being, as well as indicates the qualities or values that we must acquire for our progressive spiritual evolution, which are hidden in the depths of our being.
What is an Archetype?
So many meanings of the word ARCHETYPE have been put forward, beginning with the father of the subconscious JUNG. . Jung suggests the spirit archetypes appears in our dreams as wise old men who give advice and counsel. They appear in dreams in the guise of magician, doctor, priest, teacher, professor, grandfather or other persona who we perceive as able to give us guidance and answers to our deepest problems.
Sometimes they can appear as the spirit of a loved one who has passed on or even a talking animal.
These spirit-figures are not always morally virtuous and often represent the situation we find ourselves in. Jung suggested they are often duplicitous and on occasion can represent outright malice.
Suggested Archetypes are many and diverse but commonly accepted are these 12: Sage, Innocent, Explorer, Ruler, Creator, Caregiver, Magician, Hero, Outlaw, Lover, Jester, Rebel.
