card 24 bear 1122

Bear steps in today to tell you that although hibernation is near, there is still preparations to be done so get on to getting them done! Although most of us are probably ready to dig in and chill in our caves, especially with the holiday seasons so close, and winter just around the corner… there is still much work we need to do. Think of the bear for a moment, they are preparing for that sleep,setting things in place for that hibernation time, eating and storing what will be needed int he time ahead. Getting all in place so that when the spring thaw is here they are ready to get to getting!.

We need to do the same. Prepare for what we want and need to happen, become, be as the springtime begins to bloom. We want positives, so it is time to clean the cave, set aside things that we no longer need, and stack the deck with what we do need and desire. It may even feel like someone is pushing you to get things accomplished, or that you feel a bit frazzled because time is short… well guess what? You would be right, the Universe is saying, “Set Your House to Order and bring Balance to your Sacred Hoops!” No more excuses, it is time! Plenty of Hibernation time ahead…

Bear is all about fertility (creative and manifestation), instinct, protection and solitude. Those that walk with Bear are often somewhat reclusive requiring a great deal of personal space to renew and create. Bear people will often “disconnect” for awhile as they pursue projects becoming deeply involved in what they are working on. Deeply protective and territorial, Bear also is extremely loyal and dependable.

Bear teaches us when healing of any sort is needed to use that time for introspective work in order to grow Spiritually, Emotionally, Mentally and find answers to problems within yourself. Travel deep into your soul find the purpose in your own path and journey and walk ahead in positive steps.

Bear shares with us that in this time hibernation is not only good but needed, yet respect our natural hibernation cycle and remember to reawaken in the spring, in doing so awaken the potential within ourselves and the power of our unconscious mind.

Bear teaches us there is a time for playfulness and a time to be assertive, and perhaps a time for both in balance.
