Lame Animal Totem: The Tick

woodtickYou never know when Tick will enter your life, so undress carefully and check all your crevices as soon as possible after reading this. When Tick does crawl up your pant leg and into your life, rest assured that this totem animal will help you take advantage of others while inspiring revulsion in all you encounter.

Tick energy is intrusive, draining, and waaaaaay too intimate. Let it inspire you to show up at the homes of friends you barely know, asking to stay for an indefinite period. Eat their food, borrow their clothes, and follow them into the bathroom to tell them long stories about the bad things done to you by your ex-spouse. Whine. Wheedle. Attach yourself. Tick energy will give you all the inspiration you need.

If your spirit animal is Tick, you already know how to sink your mouth parts into a juicy situation, whether it’s a pyramid scheme that sells automatic buttock massagers to the elderly, or a naïve lottery winner whose money you’ve volunteered to manage. As you enjoy your Tick magic, be aware that you are genuinely disgusting. Also, avoid people with matches and pets with those special collars. You are already living on borrowed time.


Periodically, I’ll be sharing the animal totems you wish you knew more about: the marginalized, the disrespected, nay I say, the lame. You’ll learn the illuminating messages they hold for you. You’re welcome. ~Martha
