Foxes inhabit every continent on Earth except Antarctica, so they appear in the mythologies and folklore of many cultures. In both ancient and modern times, the fox is a symbol for cleverness. To describe someone as “clever as a fox” is a tribute to a quick and sharp intellect. The fox is a solitary hunter but after coupling, the male fox is protector and provider for his vixen and her pups. He is a good babysitter and very patient and playful with the young. “Good luck” is the outcome of preparation and opportunity, and foxes use all their gifts to increase their odds of a successful outcome. They can slip through a narrow opening in a fence to escape their enemies and pounce at the perfect time to catch their prey. The message of the fox is to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way, but don’t take things too seriously.
