Quite a deep, meaningful and complicated animal spirit guide this one…take your time and really explore all the symbolism that octopus brings to the table.
She has all the usual attributes of the water element but also ties in with moon magic.
Her environment is always moving and on the change and she adapts easily to cope with it all.
She is a spiritual creature but one that lives in contact with the ocean bed so she is also very grounded.
Octopus has the bizarre ability to detach a limb if she is caught by a predator which reflects us being able to cutting loose all that weighs us down.
Emotions, moon magic, adaptability, spirituality, grounding, letting go, mystery and creativity.
