Symbolic Meaning of Raccoon..   by Presley Love   

Raccoon brings more than the masked bandit!

With many mystical symbols and totem spirit powers he has much to teach about how to go after what you want.  Not to forget,  he is ever curious and playful while on the hunt for his next raid... in your garden!!" 

Raccoon Meaning ~   Raccoon spirit animal is nocturnal, he usually waits for the cover of night to do his fetching.  He will come under the cloak of darkness to get his booty ~ his loot!  This can be very symbolic to keep your million dollar ideas close to the vest lest others will take the loot of your ideas ~ some things need to be kept secret until you are ready for the big unveiling. 

Further Raccoon Totem energy  regarding the night invites the question ….Do you dream up great ideas at night?  If so begin exploring the options to get what you want!

Raccoon is the picture perfect bandit, and ever so adorable with his mask!   What a fun spirit guide he is.

Raccoon symbolism can also be a message that we sometimes need to wear different masks ~ sometimes you’re a boss, sometimes you’re a mom, sometimes you’re a coach … you can wear many masks just in one day ~ all versions of yourself.

Raccoon Spirit Animal Energies ~ Explore Your Options

Raccoon spirit animal shows us that he is a specialist in exploring every option looking for his dinner, so this meaning is very powerful in teaching us to explore our options when we want something and to leave no stone unturned.   He loves to spend his time fine dining with his family ~ perhaps in your garden!  The Raccoon totem reminds us to eat raw … or at least add a delicious banquet of fruits and veggies to your meals.

Raccoon loves to spend his time in trees, there may be a Raccoon power animal in the tree just outside your front door and you’ll never know it if you don’t see him scampering up to his favorite “lookout spot”.  This visit from the Raccoon could be a clue that you'd enjoy spending time in a tree house, or at the very least spend some time lounging under a big shady tree!!

My encounters with the Charming Bandit Raccoon...

One of my favorite memories of the Raccoon is when I lived in a house at the edge of the forest, there were lots of Raccoon’s sharing the neighborhood!   I remember one night not long after moving into the house... it was about 10pm and I walked into the family room, the lights were dim and I was closing down the house for the night getting ready to go to bed... that's when something caught my eye at the sliding glass door... I took a double take and realized that there was a full grown raccoon standing on his hind quarters, front paws on the glass and he was peering inside …  he stood at least 2 and half feet tall... he wasn’t frightened at all, and he was as curious about me as I was about him!  For several minutes we shared a spot of pure magic.  Was he a bandit peering in seeing if the coast was clear, looking for a way to get in?  Was he looking for a way in to get some real loot from the kitchen?  Yeah I think so!  I've since heard stories of Raccoon's frequently finding their way inside to have a gourmet meal.  

After this encounter this Raccoon and his family felt comfortable and welcome at my home and came by often for a late night dinner ~ as I started leaving veggies and other Raccoon delights out for them on the deck.  I've since moved from that house and I'll admit I miss the visits by him and his family, and whenever I see a Raccoon I remember him and his family fondly.

Also, since Raccoon has called to you, it will benefit you to look into the teachings of the the Bear and Panda... as they will help you have deeper understanding of your query - - (they are actually distantly related to the Raccoon!)  

Raccoon Spirit Animal ...  a symbol to remind you to explore your options
