The first time you encounter a moose in the wild, expect your mind to do flip-flops. You may initially take it for a warped work horse, or a disfigured deer or camel, with humps in the “wrong” places. But once you name this impressive beast, her presence will thrill you.
Moose is all about contradictions: an awkward physical appearance with graceful and elegant gate; massive forms and antlers (on males) which move silently through the forest; insatiable hunger but vegetarian diet of delicate leaves and bark. If moose is your power animal, you often fool, confuse and impress people, because of your uniqueness and breadth of qualities that cannot be put in a neat, simple box.
Moose medicine cures you of low self esteem, and helps you celebrate your individual talents and accomplishments. Instead of being boastful, “Moose People” share their gifts with others to benefit all of society.
Autumn is the time when Moose energy is at it’s highest: this is the rutting season, and thus the time when the cycle of birth and death is at it’s greatest. If you seek to undergo a life transformation, including that of giving birth, both figurative and literal, wear a talisman of moose hair or hang a photo of one above your bed.
