Fox has powerful energy, as can be seen by its ability to adapt to any situation no matter what the circumstance.
Fox brings magic into our lives, and in many cultures, has been represented as a trickster. Its playful, cunning and stealthy energy can often slip into our lives to remind us to laugh at ourselves.
