Symbolic Meaning of Fox ~&~ 
the meaning of what it is to be a Vixen ~

The name for the female Fox is Vixen. 

For us humans, a vixen has always had the reputation of being a dangerous femme fatale.  Having the ability to lure in males and send them away just as quickly, without a second thought, or lure them into danger. 

The reason for this association is that the female Fox animal sends out a scent to lure her mate when she is ready to mate, her mate who is the same mate year after year picks up her scent and faithfully returns to her. 

After mating however the female sends her mate away again, to raise her young on her own. 

She will beckon him again to return only when her kit has grown and left her side, and she is ready to mate yet once again.  She is so irresistible that he returns year after year.

The Vixen makes the rules of the relationship!  The Vixen has a message for today's women;  know your worth, define your boundaries and the right man will find you beyond Irresistible!
