The Wild Boar & Red Deer as Teachers

I saw my first UK Wild Boar yesterday along with some Red Deer and I wanted to know what they represented in terms of a Spirit Animal, so here it is:
THE WILD BOAR...


has been the symbol of warriors for centuries. The Celts believed that the Boar, which they called Torc or Bacrie, was their ally in war and there are many Celtic myths surrounding this noble animal. Native American Indians make war masks in the likeness of the Wild Boar to frighten and intimidate their enemies.


The Boar’s head was used by many cultures as symbols of their countries of coat of arms. In particular Richard III of England took the Wild Boar as his personal Totem and coat of arms. The Wild Boar is mostly seen as a masculine entity and Totem, enriching the male virtues of bravery, nobility and fierceness in battle. The Wild Boar spirit will balance out male energy and ground the more virtuous aspects of the masculine nature.

The powerful Wild Boar has large tusks that can be deadly. They are fierce animals and signify the warrior spirit. This animal needs close body contact and tends to live in groups of fifty or more. They are clannish in nature but are wary of outsiders. Wild Boars are mostly thought of as noble and brave animals that enjoy social interaction within their group.

The Wild Boar possesses many animal virtues that are powerful and valuable and which any person would be wise to emulate or divine. One who has the power of the Wild Boar will see enhanced courage, fearlessness, and nobility; an increased ability to strategically plan action aimed at obtaining success. Prosperity, re-birth and chivalry are also all part of this noble totem’s magic.

The Brave Wild Boar Totem possesses the following virtues: Warrior strength, warrior mind, fierceness in battle, chivalry, nobility, prosperity, strategic skills, deadly accuracy, personal power, re-birth, organization, successful confrontation, comrade, respected leadership and pure masculine energy.

Wild Boar Animal Pearls are said to impart their particular magical virtues to their owner. Wild Boar Pearls are characteristic of its host animal; they possess all the awesome characteristics that may be seen in the Wild Boar itself; the nobility and courage of this animal is contained within the pearl waiting for its proper owner to bestow its inner magic to that unique and fortunate individual.

For century’s warriors, kings, leaders, strategic planners, army generals, shamans, spiritualists and practitioners of the occult have used Wild Boar animal pearls to transfer the powerful magical energy of the Wild Boar to themselves and to others in need of this commanding animal magic.

Wild Boar pearls are highly sought after by any wishing to absorb Wild Boar virtues into their lives and develop stronger mental abilities such as those embodied by this powerful creature. The owner of a Wild Boar pearl will see their lives, spiritual energy and mental clarity imbued with all of the virtues attributed to the “Warrior” of the lands, the Wild Boar. The Wild Boar animal totem is a strong spirit and its magical properties are one of the most influential of all animal totems. Strength, leadership, courage, warrior strength, nobility, prosperity, and so much more can be integrated into the spirit of the possessor of this magical pearl and the Wild Boar.

THE RED DEER
Red Deer Stag

With his impressive rack of antlers, Red Deer makes an awesome sight. His power and agility makes Red Deer, a challenge to hunt. For that reason, the Europeans regarded Him the “Lord of the Forest.” For many chieftains and kings, to bring Him down was proof of their power. Because of his regal bearing and grandeur, Red Deer became a part of European religions.

Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) is the Eurasian twin of North America Elk (Cervus elaphus). The largest surviving member of the ancient British forests, He first appeared before the Ice Age. After surviving the Ice Age, Red Deer went to North America and developed a separate life as Elk (Wapiti). There, He became a part of people’s religious lives also.

During the fall mating season, Red Deer uses his rack of antlers as a weapon to prove his worth to the Hinds (Females), He challenges other Stags for kingship of the Herd. In the rutting season, about a hundred Deer join together into one herd until winter. Then Stags separate to form their Bachelor Herds, while Hinds stay together in their group.

Red Deer offers a glimpse into the sacredness of nature. His regal bearing inspires people with awe. Because of Red Deer’s connection with ancient lives, He brings the old religions alive. He teaches what is worthy of worship and what is not.
Red Deer’s Wisdom Includes:
Connecting to The Ancient Past, Having Pride, Being Independent, Being Royal.
