Animal Spirit -
Squid and Octopus are both jet swimmers in that they propel themselves through the water at great speed by funneling it though an orifice or jet like device. Both Squid and Octopus have sucker equipped tentacles and have a great stubbornness when they do not want to release their hold on an object. Both Squid and Octopus have a great ability at disguise or camouflage so as to blend in with their surroundings by changing the color patterns on the surface of their skins. More so than the Squid, the Octopus likes to make unusual and ingenious shelters or homes for itself and has a preoccupation to its nesting or homemaking ability when not in search of food.
As both have sucker equipped tentacles, they share in their eating method as both have a parrot like beak at the center of the tentacles orientated about their head. Both Squid and Octopus are quite flexible in their structure and quite inquisitive in nature. The Medicine of the Squid and the Octopus is about their great cat like curiosity as well as their great flexibility when ensnared or entrapped. In dreams or visions the Squid or Octopus is a foreteller of dangers and entrapments that may be going on in one’s life, as both are masters of deception and camouflage and possess the ability to escape through the emission of a cloud of ink.
It is in this escaping ability that they will often bring their messages in dreams. If entangled in the tentacles of one of these in vision or dreams, it signifies that one will always find the way out of one’s current situation through the release of a wrongful goal, ideal or fear. Squid and Octopus in dreams and visions will oftentimes take on the form of the individual that may be causing the problem if you ask them to.
