Enchanting and Stealthy
In the United States, foxes are generally found in rural and suburban areas, though urban foxes are a common sight in the United Kingdom. Encountering these furry creatures as you go about your daily business can be an enchanting experience. Read on to learn more about the deeper meaning of a fox sighting.
Getting to Know the Fox
As with all totem or spirit animals, much can be learned by simple observation. For instance, although foxes are related to wolves and dogs, the latter typically run in packs, while the fox is solitary. Unless she is raising a family, she hunts and sleeps alone. The fox is perfectly comfortable in her own company and she uses this time alone wisely—contemplating, planning, and navigating.
What Does the Fox Say?
If you have a fox sighting, it’s a reminder to increase your awareness, to tune into your intuition, and to rely on your sixth sense to lead the way. If the elusive fox happens to show himself, his message is that any problem you’re experiencing is solvable. He is there to guide you in your awareness of the circumstances surrounding you.
Open your eyes (including your third eye) to see the situation at hand with clarity and from all angles. Be more like the fox by “reading” the terrain ahead and widening your perspective to include all possibilities.

Fox as a Spirit Animal
If you work with the fox as your spirit animal or spirit guide, you may find that your intuition, extrasensory perception (ESP), or the feeling of being “aware” is heightened—especially during the dusk hours. Dusk is the magical time between day and night, similar to the time in between eclipses. Dusk is when the cunning and elusive fox begins his day.
Like so many animal spirit guides that cover more than one terrain (earth, sky, water and so on), some believe that the fox travels between the worlds of the animal kingdom and the fairy realm. Others believe he walks through both the Spirit world and the earthly world.
As with many animal totems, there are myths, legends, and different beliefs about the fox in Native American culture. Some believe that for those with good intentions and motivations, the fox spirit is a guide or problem solver. But for those who are arrogant and negative, the fox becomes the trickster who will lead them to their karma. Several tribes, such as the Hopi and the Creek, have fox clans.
The Celts and the Finns
The ancient Celts, much like Native Americans, were very spiritual people who read the signs of nature and observed and respected nature’s way. To the Celts, the meaning of a fox in dreams or everyday life pointed to one who walked with confidence and ease in both the natural and spirit worlds.
According to Mentalfloss.com, “The Finnish believed a fox made the Northern Lights by running in the snow so that its tail swept sparks into the sky. From this, we get the phrase ‘fox fires.’” There are certainly many sides to the fox and, as with any spirit animal, the meaning of a fox sign is purely personal.
Silver Fox Meaning
If you’ve had the opportunity to spot a silver fox, you know that you have had a special experience. Silver foxes are a type of red fox with a genetic difference that can give them their distinct appearance and personality. When you encounter a silver fox, you might want to prepare yourself for the unusual or unexpected.
It should also be noted that the term “silver fox” is sometimes used to describe an older person with gray or silver hair who is both attractive and possesses significant personal charisma. Your meeting with an actual silver fox may suggest that you should heed advice given by people older than yourself.
Le Normand Cards
Le Normand cards are a divination tool that has been in use since the 1800s. Gifted diviners and psychics use these cards to predict the future and provide guidance to their clients. The fourteenth card of the deck is the Fox. In Le Normand, the presence of the Fox in a reading can point to trickery, cleverness, and cunning, but can also point to survival.
Deception and Intuition
If you view the fox as a trickster, then perhaps your message from Spirit is to be aware of people or circumstances that may be trying to deceive you. For those of you with an enlightened view of the fox, the meaning of a fox sighting may be a call to work on your psychic senses and to trust your intuition.
In observance of the fox’s behavior, his message is often a reminder to work through areas of resistance in your life by taking a different or unique approach. The fox overcomes his obstacles and faces his challenges head-on.
Magnetic Fields and Hunting
Similar to sharks and birds, the fox uses the earth’s magnetic field to hunt prey. Science tells us that they see the magnetic grid as a “ring of shadow.” When the shadow and the sound of their prey align, he knows it’s time to attack. Sight, sound, and magnetic vibrations are his tools.
Foxes are great parents. While otherwise living the single life, during the first seven months of their pups’ lives, fox parents are loving and loyal to their pups. Foxes may get a bad rap for being cunning, sly, and doing such dastardly deeds as decimating chicken coups, but they are survivors who, for the most part, live very solitary, contemplative lives. They have perfected their skills over time, and they are highly adaptable and knowledgeable about their immediate environments. You can find them living anywhere from the most remote terrains to very urban areas.
There is much we can learn about the fox, both literally and spiritually. As a messenger and a guide, there is so much to admire about the fox, and we can mirror them in our own lives as we try to adapt to our constantly changing environment.
