It is believed that to see a fox is a symbol of luck. While pregnant with Bee I remember sitting at Ty and Jacob's graves, as I often did in those days, and a fox walked right in front of me. I was caught off guard as foxes in the middle of the day typically mean the fox isn't all that healthy, nonetheless, when I got home I researched what it meant to see a fox. Research led me to the answer of "to see a fox is a symbol of good luck." At the time I prayed it meant the baby I was carrying would live and not be buried beside her brothers.
As it turns out, the fox I saw that day did bring good luck as Bee is here, happy and healthy at almost 7 years old (shit where did the time go?) On our nightly walk this evening, usually held at the local cemetery, a fox crossed our path. It was across the field and despite both Bee and I's inquisitive nature of nature, we gave it respectful distance (I didn't feel a trip to the ER for rabies shots would end our peaceful day in a good way). I talked with Bee about what seeing a fox represents and like her inquisitive mother, when we returned home Bee wanted to research what it meant more in depth because apparently only meaning we have good luck isn't enough for an almost 7 year old.
In our search, we found a website that gave us 3 meanings of seeing a fox (well, there was more but only three applied to our fox sighting). They were 1. We are going to encounter a significant gain in life (cue Bee telling me I need to buy a lottery ticket so we can buy a farm and build our own farm sanctuary/animal rescue) 2. It is a symbol of luck (thank goodness because we are about to embark on a daring adventure that starts with getting on a metal tube of death, we need all the luck we can get) 3. We will win in love. I told Bee the 3rd one didn't apply to us because we've already won love by having each other (sappy I know but I truly do feel that way).
Animal sightings and the meanings behind them are something I've started to become fond of. Even if I don't truly understand, to read about superstitions or beliefs of other cultures regarding animals is fascinating. It opens a part of the world I don't know thus far. It allows me to teach Bee about other cultures, other ways of life and how nature has symbolic meaning for so many. Animals hold such power in this world and others often look the other way, but when you spend some time getting to know nature, it will reward you greatly.
Tonight we go to bed with a bit more knowledge and a memory we surely won't forget. It's also written in our nature book to ensure we remember to always look for the beauty in nature and to respect it. To remind us that seeing a fox to some has powerful meaning, rooted in deep culture and respect. For us, it was a memory created based on love, caring, kindness and a deep passion for mother nature.
