Fox Meaning and Symbolism

Do foxes keep crossing your path, or do you hear them calling in the depths of the night? Have they appeared in books, or maybe in your dreams

Foxes often represent cunning, playfulness and resilience. They walk the fine line between the wilds and urban living, making the best of both environments. They are adaptable, clever and full of mischief. 


Foxes inhabit each and every continent on Earth, apart from Antarctica, because of this they are held scared by many cultures and carry much mythology with them. Foxes symbolise grace, wildness, and diplomacy. They can also represent the beauty of nature destroyed by man as they become a more frequent visitor to our towns and city sprawls.

Foxes beckon you to get back in touch with your true wild, feral nature. To listen to the instinct that stirs in the pit of your stomach, that wishes to run with abandon through the trees, laughing and never looking back. When was the last time you felt the damp grasses between your toes and belly laughed into the wind?

Foxes hold a duel nature, as along with their more mischievous side, they can also slip silently into the shadows, morphing into a resilient survivor. The fox could be telling you that now is the time to lay low, to prioritise your needs and that of your home and family. Now could be the time to be invisible to others.
