Warning: Sometime The Porcupine comes as a warning though rarely as a prediction. It seeks rather to make us look at things we are ignoring or repressing and bring them into the open and deal with them.
Protection: The Porcupine may come at a time when we need strength of some sort. Are you feeling under pressure with something? Are you eating healthy and exercising? Do you feel under attack?
Barriers: The Porcupine can represent obstacles, a person or situation holding us back. Career wise it may be lack of experience or qualifications. In a relationship it is often a communication issue.
Confusion: The Porcupine can represent confusion or hiding from the truth, a situation where we can’t decide what to do or feel we are banging ours heads on a brick wall. The sooner it’s dealt with the better.
