There was a short meditation at the end of the yoga asanas. As I sat I noticed spider and crow. Crow was strong, vital, spider was timid and I could feel the feelings of being shy and disappearing in her.
In the shamanic traditions I work in, spider is my totem. She shows up as a Black Spider, a huntsman spider or sometimes a brown house spider. She showed up today as a black spider.
It was fascinating to see and feel her. It felt like I was able to know more about myself through being with her and crow in these minutes.
It felt like she was showing me specific parts of my broken feminine. With crow strongly with me too.
