Animal Magic: The Badger
A creature of the night and also the wildness of the woods they are ancient and respected creatures. They are playful and mischievous but they also work hard creating underground tunnels which they like to redesign providing a home for future generations.
They can be aggressive but only when they feel in danger and they will stand their ground and fight for what they want. They are also healers tapping into the magic of earth to bring relief. Although their sight isn’t great they do have an excellent sense of smell and hearing.
The badger doesn’t mess around it just gets on with it and gets the job done efficiently. Badger is also very self reliant although with a tendency to hide away from others and apparently quite house proud.
Wisdom, cunning, perseverance, earth magic, protection, creativity, fighting for your rights, organisation, fearless and solitary.
