Represents: Joy, feminine power, playfulness

Otters awaken curiosity. They remind us that everything is interesting if we look at it from the right angle.

The Otter spirit animal is connected to the primal feminine energies of life: The elements of both Earth and Water are present in Otter medicine. With an Otter spirit animal, you must remember the beauty of a balanced female side, creating a space for others to enter our lives without preconceptions or suspicions. Otter teaches us that balanced female energy is not catty or jealous. It is a sisterhood and a sharing with others. Otter expresses joy for others.

Remember that all of us, both men and women, have a feminine side. If an Otter has entered your life, it may be time to find some play time in your life, to awaken your inner child. If Otter is your spirit animal, allow events to unfold naturally in your life. Be careful not to hang on the material things that bind you or become a burden.

Become Otter and move gently into the river of life, going with the flow.
