If I have a spirit animal I think it's a small nervous rodent.
Yet years ago when I consulted psychics at the Tremont Tea Room in Boston, I was told my spirit animal is a hawk. Every card I chose, I turned it over and there was a hawk. I really was jonesing at the time for my spirit animal to be a dolphin, so I was bummed.
It's strange that my spirit animals are mortal enemies. It's like that symbol Ouroboros, the snake eating it's own tail. Creation and destruction: hawk-like vision, and scrambling rodent-like fear. Ying and yang.
The cool thing is there is a chipmunk living in a hole under our patio, and a hawk that preens itself in the afternoons on our silver maple tree, so I get to see aspects of myself several times a day.
