I had a very powerful dream about a fox last night.
The fox had gorgeous fur. She was laying under a table and her whole body could be seen, but not her head. (In the dream, I watched the whole time from the doorway of the house.)
There was a party of some kind that was starting. Many women. The fox sensed a change in the room. She became scared and territorial. She swiftly moved out from under the table and rushed the women in the room. She choose the woman who was holding the party and lunged to bite her on the cheek.
The fox would NOT let go of the woman’s cheek. The woman screamed and screamed.
I went out into the yard and dialed 911 to let them know, feeling very sad, as I knew the fox would most likely not live after this event.
I went back to the doorway. I saw that the fox was gone and learned that she had been shot. I was very sad…she was so beautiful and strong. I thought she might have pups out in the surrounding woods, and said this aloud.
Main ideas and feelings around this dream that I will explore:
Women in a group
Protection in the wild
Biting/not letting go
Melancholy for the earth and human connection
Nature in urban settings
