"The Sign of the Turkey"


These "wild turkeys" invaded the neighborhood I live in this morning for some "Fall foraging" . I don't exactly know what they were eating from my yard but there is an oak tree near the street in my yard so they might be eating acorns (they must be nuts). Although these turkeys are "wild" they seemed quite comfortable in the neighborhood and didn't seem afraid of me. There was no "Tom" turkey among this "gang of eight" but I don't know these turkey's names; I did ask but they didn't answer me.

From the website  whats-your-sign.com they say the following about wild turkey sightings and symbolism:

Autumnal Symbolic Meanings

  • Cycles
  • Harvest
  • Endings
  • Beginnings
  • Preparation

Animal symbolism of the turkey also deals with male virility and pride. This isn't surprising when we observe male turkeys in the wild. They are quite noble looking as the strut and fan their impressive plumage for all to see.
When the turkey visits us it is a sign that we must be mindful of the blessings bestowed upon us each day. Further, it is a message to express our strength and brilliance - it's time to show our own plumage and reveal true selves. 

So, I guess I have to start showing the universe my "strength and brilliance". I suppose that is what I have to do. The number 8 is the "Lucky number" for China and with the name Rickshaw I have taken this as a "sign" to study somewhat the Oriental culture now and Zen. Hey, maybe "good fortune" will "Smile" on me in the near future; time will tell but at least I'm probably "brilliant enough" to "count my blessings".
