“NOTHING CAN STOP ME NOW!” is the mantra of Rhinoceros people: the perfect power animal for those fed up with uncertainty, insecurity and inertia. Rhinos weigh 150 pounds at birth, and can reach up to 3 tons: next to elephants they are as ancient, large, powerful, tenacious and earthy as any creature alive. Thus, they are credited with the qualities of grounded-ness, practicality, endurance, wisdom and Power, with a big “P”. Rhinos are typically gentle and community focused by nature — unless provoked.
They also keep cool in the mud, but they don’t get stuck in it. If you feel stuck in life, envision the rhino’s horn on your own head; it’s thick skin shielding you from the daily indignities and defeats that have knocked you down; his sturdy feet forging a new and confident path. Rhinos know how to strike a balance between conserving energy and charging ahead. When they want or need something, they don’t spend months or years contemplating it (even though they can live for half a century): they go for it! Stop being lazy. Stop making excuses. Rhinos don’t whine, they snort. If you aren’t happy in every aspect of your life, do something about it, right this minute….charge!
