Having the fox as spirit animal, you may be guided to learn from lessons in a way that may feel like you are being challenged or sometimes even being tricked. To make the most of the fox totem wisdom, keep a strong sense of humor and be smart of the lessons you learn.
The power of the fox is a great support to develop your ability to find the sharpest and smartest solution to any problem. Call on the fox guidance when you feel lost and need help finding you way.
Fox spirit animal and nocturnal habits
Foxes are most active at night, but also are day animals. By affinity with the animal totem, you may like to be active and bring your creativity to its peak during night time as it gives you the space to be closer to your natural state.
Working with dreams is a particularly useful practice for those who have the fox as a spirit guide. The affinity with the night activities supports the connection with the dream world.
Fox animal symbolism and traditions
The fox is often associated with the dark side of magic. In a lot of cultures, seeing a fox as you start a new project or endeavor is a bad omen. In some Native American belief systems, this animal represents the practice of negative sorcery and the dark manipulation of magic powers.
The fox has long been considered as a witty, quick and intelligent. In some European traditional tales, he’s the character who outsmarts humans and other animals alike and gets away even in the trickiest situations.
Dreaming about The Fox
The fox and its ability to quietly and masterfully get into the hen house, have made this spirit animal a universal symbol of being sly, cunning, shrewd, clever, tricky and opportunistic. Therefore a fox in your dreams is often a symbol to watch out for danger from around you. There may be hidden enemies or rivals waiting for the right opportunity.
However, the fox may also be a symbol of connecting to the parts of you that are cunning and clever. Is there a situation that requires a clever solution? Is there an opportunity that is just waiting for you to take it?

Foxytales is truly an amazing group. The sheer amount of diversity, creativity, and thought put into this community is just the beginning. No matter your skill level, there is not a more accepting place for fox lovers to come together and share their interest. Not to mention the incredible staff and members- we all support each other with every step, and no matter the issue, we're all willing to help out when there's a problem. I can't think of a place I'd rather be.
This is truly an amazing group, with so many friendly members! You can earn some inspiration by seeing all the creative and wonderful art! I am not long in this group, but it is such a nice community with interesting events and where we can depend on each other. So yes, it's great to be in this fox-themed group! :3
This really is an amazing group, and it's just the most heartwarming thing to hear how supportive people are. I'm rather new to this group, and haven't really posted much yet, but I've already had a warm welcome from a few members. People have made beautiful art, as well as been very supportive of each other's' art. Just, amazing job to everyone.

I'm so amazed how much the people here are sticking together to help each other and how nice everyone is. So far i haven't seen any hateful, or hostile comments. This whole experience of having nice people around is so new to me and i'm glad i found this growing family. I just sincerely hope it's gonna stay the way it is. Perhaps it's gonna help me with my social problems as well.
Thank you Foxytales

Is the Foxytales Tribe some kind of sect?
Oh no, no! We call our members community a "tribe" because we identify as fox lovers and unite under the group banner! But we're not any kind of religion-type group, no worries! We also won't bite if you'll leave the group, but we'll be kinda sad :(
Various! Just take a look at what our galleries accept!
Oh, and if there's no folder of your kind of art, please note us!
I really love foxes, but I don't create any fox art. I'm not sure if I should join...
That's no problem at all! We're open to everyone, no matter if you will share artwork or just watch the art!
Well... but isn't it just another passive group only for sharing artwork?
Not only! Our main goal is to be active group full of fox lovers, so we'll organize various group events, challenges, contests, features! To have fun, to promote art, to share the fox luv
Can I share my commission, request info or activity like contest etc. on the main page of the group?
As long as it's possibly fox-related (or fox artwork can take part too), you can do it right away! Just please don't share it every day or every 2 hours, it will be treated like a spam.
If you want, we have a journal full of members' commissions, you can be also added there!
Okay, this sounds nice and all, but how can I join?
