This article covers Aquarius Spirit Animals. I love the idea of “animal spirit guides” and this is something I have explored and experimented with since I was in my early 20’s. So I decided to create some fun posts covering spirit animals associated with the zodiac signs. I also created “woodland forest creature” versions for each zodiac sign and you will see that animal in this article.

What are Animal Spirit Guides? 

  • Animal spirit guides are essentially metaphysical beings or energies that are associated with a particular animal. It is believed that these guides are here to act as spiritual teachers, offering guidance and wisdom to individuals who seek to connect with them. 
  • Some people believe that animal spirit guides can appear in dreams, visions, or meditations, while others believe that they can be called upon through rituals or ceremonies. In many cultures and spiritual traditions, animal spirit guides play an important role in healing, personal growth, and spiritual development.
