Animal totem message for the week of June 16 – CROW. Crows and ravens are similar, but have different meanings as animal messengers. Crows nest very high in the trees and are excellent watchers, always alert to danger and warning others when necessary. Your message: do not let your guard down when new opportunities arrive. You may need to proceed with caution. The opportunity may be a good one, but be sure you have all the facts first. Forewarned is forearmed.
