Wolf can survive either as a loner or as part of a pack, and he howls to remind you that you have to balance the needs of others with the needs of the self.

Hawk flies into your reading today to bring you an important message. It may come in the mail, e-mail, a casual remark at the grocery store, a randomly selected page in a book, or even a phrase heard on the radio. Be alert, as hawk messages can sometimes be delivered in a subtle fashion.
Matters of Finance, Acquisition and Wealth (Jupiter)
Blue Jay encourages you to be a little sassy today! If there's something you've been wanting, ask for it.

Matters of the Intellect (Saturn)
Bear represents a time of reflection and stillness—a time of entering the inner cave of Self to contemplate life's challenges. Bear often appears during times of confusion and unrest—those unsettling moments when you turn to everyone you know for answers—everyone except yourself. Go within, ask the hard questions—then listen.
