    Seeing a Fox is a positive thing, one thing thou is to be careful not to be deceived by anyone and if you get deceived just keep in mind that There’s no Gods but Allah only will guide you whatever you’re going through. I see them all the time I my own backyard too.

    People say that foxes bring bad luck and misfortune to those who listen, but I think the lesson to be learned is to not be a stupid goose who gets so pissed off they stalk you to a mcdonalds forcing you to jump out the back window. (happened to someone). As a spirit guide, one once led me to a homeless man who fell into misfortune who was living rough away from everyone, trying not to be a bother- whom I helped financially, and a struggling new family who wanted nothing more than to have a christmas miracle. I hope that he’ll continue to guide me, because that game in pans labyrinth was something to always remember.

    Recently I have been drawn to foxes, and I see them a lot. I don’t have a fox personality (I’m very shy and not outspoken, I have trouble taking control). Could this mean that I should become more like a fox?

      I mean well I’m drawn to fox’s too and lately I’ve been acting more like one. Even though I’m not exactly like a fox I’m starting to act more like one. Does anyone know anything? Please comment down.

      I don’t really think outspokenness or taking control has anything at all to do with fox energy. In fact I’d see those as more wolfish traits. If anything foxes would see quiet observation as a useful skill. Watching, waiting, not rushing in, only speaking when its the right time. Being outspoken and controlling wouldn’t be very clever! But the fox may indeed be telling you to be more like them, especially in a tricky situation you could be going through.

    I have encountered many foxes recently some of them run out in front of me. And they just seem to always be around me. What does this mean? Is this my spirit animal?

    A fox appeared twice (in my backyard) when I changed my job six months ago, and again (today) as I transition to a new opportunity. Keen to hear you thoughts on what it’s telling me.

    Recently I’ve felt like the fox is my spirit animal. I would be the shy, calm, intelligent side of the fox. But I don’t know. I’ve never seen a fox in the wild or my dreams. If it is my spirit animal, it would be an an arctic fox. I want to see if a fox has chosen me.

      Just be open to the spirits and allow them to guide you, no matter how stupid it seems. Just be fearless, but also sometimes it’s fun to play along 😉
