I know the Happy Squirrel is a wild one


...we never feed them; they eat persimmons and walnuts and
bomb us and scold if they think we are staring at them. That is the way it should be; we are visitors in their territory.

I admire their cuteness from a distance.

Regards,

Cerulean

I think you have given us the true divinatory meaning of the Happy Squirrel Card " Admire cuteness from a distance" Think how many worthwhile circumstances in which it might prove the best advice!

How about: "All that is fuzzy and cute is NOT cuddly."

An "All that glitters..." message but with more ominous overtones.

My own squirrel story:


It happened many years ago.
The wind was howling and a knock came upon the door.
RAP-rap-RAP.
My neighbor, a pretty young thing, stood there worried because two squirrels were laying beneath her great tall pine tree.
Might they bite her, she wondered.
So I, with my rubber cleaning gloves and a box, accompanied her home to see why squirrels would lay beneath her great tall pine tree.
They were babies, mere infants.
I boxed them up and left her to her fantasies of being bitten by infant squirrels.
From there I took them to a wildlife specialist.
Her tale of what had happened was amazing.
She just might be a squirrel diviner, but that is another tale.
One of the babies had a crust on her nose. A bloody crust.
Apparently if you find very small squirrels out of the nest you should look for the mother's dead body somewhere nearby...perhaps on the road.
Baby squirrels will throw themselves out of the nest after a while of not being fed by the mother.
They just throw themselves out of the nest due to sheer hunger and dehydration.
And they hope they land near some kind of food.
These babies were covered in fleas a sign the mother had been missing a while.

So the Happy Squirrel is perhaps the mother squirrel, happy with her nut, and planning a return to the nest where her babies lay waiting and hoping that they don't have to throw themselves out of the nest too soon...

Glad this was bumped...
that damn Happy Squirrel keeps haunting me.

It showed up in a recent reading...and that card has been giving me troubles in my own deck making process, too.

I really love all the meanings here.
hmmmmmm...It's leaves a lot to think about.

Especially in this harvest, nut gathering time.

Cool


The Happy Squirrel reminds us that sometimes it’s the rodents, stealing our tulip bulbs (ruining our spring garden colors), knocking apples from the trees…

And sometimes we’re besieged by nuts….

But always it reminds us that even with the best laid plans and good intentions...one dang rat with a fuzzy tail can screw up the works.

You very much remind me of my husband and mother-in-law.
They have it in for a dear little woodchuck.
We have a large garden. About 3/4 of an acre.
Our woodchuck friend has his front door across the way from the patty pan squash row. His delicate teeth marks marred the white perfection of almost half our crop this year. Our customers don't like teeth marks.
But the woodchuck is just doing what woodchucks do.
And squirrels, well, squirrels are just doing what they do when they find a scrumptious tulip bulb. They celebrate thinking it must be some kind of gift from the squirrel gods....

Remember, when we are outside we must share the earth with our wild brethren, it is after all their home. Inside the house is another story...but out there where the animals live, we are in a way, visiting.

Well said.


Squirrels are indeed rodents.
But they also are the master planters of oak trees.
Accidental gardeners I like to call them. Because they do indeed destroy much of what they plant....
So are these the messages?

Be careful what you sow.
Don't dig it up if it isn't yours to dig.
Mindless scurrying might be fun but what about the results?
Some things are better left buried.
