The origins of the woodpecker spirit animal
The woodpecker is associated with the western zodiac sign of Cancer and with it, it has many points in common. It is a very important bird for the Amerindians because it promotes the decomposition of dead trees and therefore has a prominent place in the forest. Thanks to its beak, it allows the multiplication of mushrooms that serve to balance, renew and regenerate the environment. This creature is therefore fascinating through its ability to transmit life and fight against death.
The woodpecker is a bird that builds its nest close to the ground. It is anchored, close to the earth, to its roots in the literal and figurative sense of the word.
