A GENTLE, COMFORTING PEACEMAKER
Sensitive and peaceful, the doe is a highly compassionate land animal. It understands that you cannot push others to change, but instead must gently nudge them in the right direction with love and understanding. Those who identify with the doe may find fulfillment in the holistic world, or in careers such as therapy or social work.
The Doe has played an important role in the Celtic tradition. Both Celtic and Native American hunters prayed to the Deer for a good hunt, and in return promised to take no more than what was essential. This serves as a great reminder that our spirit of respect and unconditional love should extend to all species, great and small. The Doe teaches us that in light of challenges or anger, gentleness and caring are often far more effective than force in helping us to overcome difficult situations. Only love for oneself and others helps us understand the true meaning of wholeness. According to beliefs, when a Doe enters your world, a new innocence and freshness is about to come forth – forthcoming adventures will give you the opportunity to open new doors through the power of love.
If you find that you're the spirit doe, then your vulnerability and naivety may cause others to take advantage of you. The doe enters your life as a reminder to be as gentle with yourself as you are with others and to take time alone in a quiet place to rest and be in nature.
Stand strong in your own power while keeping that wonder-like innocence and grace that others find to enchanting.
Traits of the doe are Loving, Gentle, Peacemaker, Compassionate and Sensitive.
