Deer as Totem Animal, Descanso Gardens, April 8, 2016

Deer are a symbol of grace, gentleness, love and kindness.  They are a significant part of mythology and folklore.  According to Ina Woolcott, Shamanic Journey, “When a deer totem enters your world, a new innocence and freshness is about to be awakened. New adventures are just around the corner and there will be an opportunity to express the gentle love that will open new doors for you.”  I see many deer in my early morning walks at Descanso.  I always enjoy stopping to watch them graze and walk along the hillside.
