Daily Angel Oracle Card: Raccoon ~ Resourcefulness, from the Power Animal Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer
Raccoon ~ Resourcefulness: “You have all the RESOURCES you need.”
“Everything you need is right in front of you if you only look. There is no need to be fussing about this and that, creating drama and turmoil, worrying about whether you will have enough the next hour, the next day, or the next week. Whatever you need will be there. You might have to forage a little, but it will. Trust that. There is nothing to fret or worry about. Not really.
Use your brain and your intuition in partnership to not only help you solve the problem, but actually solve the problem. At first, it may not be obvious where to look; that is why you have to poke around a bit until you turn up what you need for this or any other situation. Sometimes when you follow your hunch and look under the couch for your lost wallet, you find the wallet. And do not get tweaked if all the steps you take do not lead to an immediate solution. Do not proceed blindly or out of anxiety or fear. It is impossible to hear your intuition or your brain when you are jumping around randomly. So relax. Trust that what you need will turn up.
Additional associations for this card:
Stealth; Ingenuity; Cleverness; Dexterity”*

Raccoon’s message is all about seeing your own resourcefulness. It’s about appreciating your unique set of skills and life experience and applying them to the current situation. You don’t need to rely on someone else for your success or happiness, you can create it all on your own.
Raccoon has an aspect of sneakiness, or secrecy. Are you keeping your dreams and desires a secret? Sometimes we hide our deepest desires even from ourselves, believing they are so far out of reach that we don’t even allow ourselves to acknowledge them, locking them safely into our hearts and continuing on with our lives as best we can. Raccoon is not about compromise, Raccoon is about getting what you want. It’s a message about quick thinking, decisiveness, and courage. Raccoons do not back down!
Are you ready to work with the energy of Raccoon? This can be a very transformational time, and sometimes Raccoon’s mask is a symbol of secretive transformation; as in you are transforming on the inside while showing the same face on the outside. This may be so if you are not ready to admit the changes that are taking place within you, and that is completely OK. Raccoon will help you keep your secret until you are ready to share it!
It’s time to take inventory of what you are capable of, as you may have forgotten the importance of what you have learned so far in this lifetime and how you can use it now. When you see your victories laid out in front of you, it gives you the courage to step forward and take action towards what you really want. Look at your situation with intelligence and curiosity to find a creative solution, keeping in mind that Raccoon is adventurous and inquisitive so you are in for some fun. If you are feeling stuck or stagnant, this could be a time to shake things up a little and get out of your comfort zone, learning something new.
