Deer are incredibly adaptive, gentile, and perceptive animals. They symbolize innocence.
Their vision is designed to see clearly at long distances. Their antlers are shed each year and they grow back bigger and stronger. This can be seen as a symbol for personal growth in your own life. How have your perceptions changed over time? How are you expanding yourself in the domains of your personality, emotion, social experience, and spirituality?
Antlers can also be seen as metaphoric connections to the higher chakras. Pay attention to your own inner imaginings, flashes of imagery, fantasies, and thoughts. Are they connected and aligned with who you are as a spirit? Or are they reactive, emotional, and capricious? You will do well to tune into your own information as a spirit.
The deer totem teaches us to express love gently and to invite new doors of opportunity and adventure into our lives. Ask yourself: are you being gentle enough with yourself? Are you giving to yourself regularly and doing things that you truly enjoy?
