A Dogs Life

Daily Draw: Toltec Oracle ~ Itskuintli Dog

Considered the companion traveler for prince, or shaman trance guide. It can mean traveling which renews the mind and spirit while the body still welcomes coming back home. The human figure has a double or shadow figure indicated by the curve across the head.

I'm reminded by this card we all have two, sometimes more sides. The one that interacts with the world and the one in our mind. It would probably take several lifetimes to intergrate the two because most of us don't have or accept the tools of trance or visualization or psychotherapy. And having two sides isn't a bad thing by any stretch. We must have our mind in which to celebrate or blow off steam in a manner which wouldn't be acceptable in public. And we can talk it over with our own version of the faithful dog companion... More politically correct than spewing our innermost thoughts in public, then as now.

"Dogs' lives are too short. Their only fault, really." ~ Agnes Sligh Turnbull 1888-1982
