The Dreaded Scorpion

You might think that an animal spirt deck would only have those critters we are delighted to encounter, the cuddly kinkajou, the iridescent blue morpho, the majestic great blue whale. But to leave out those creatures from which we naturally recoil, those hiding, skittering, stinging, biting crispy little creatures would be to ignore an entire ecosystem of dark wisdom. Here is the scorpion’s message:


A scorpion never stings in aggression, but only when it is frightened. 

Face your fears, drop your defenses. When life stings remember, this poison may be the very medicine you need.
