Deity associated with..?
« on: July 13, 2011, 01:18:20 am »
..Chipmunks? It sounds a bit silly, but I see them everywhere. It seems like a sign, are there any deities associated with them?

I suspect if there are any deities, in the Western sense of the term, they would be of Asian persuasion (an area that is not my forte) as they are only native to Asia and North America. I do work with Chipmunk, though- you might try reaching out to him directly.

Thanks! I'll try and look into that. I'm not very familiar with the Asian deities, but I'll see what I can find.

Have you thought it may be a possible totem animal? (thats if you work is totem animals or interested..) Maybe look into what chipmunks represent and the symbolism of it :)

Something i found off google

"Chipmunk as a totem carries similar traits as the squirrel. Forests and other wooded regions are their natural habitat. But, they also adapt well to residential environments that offer vegetation. The chipmunk is content to live under your porch or near stone foundations for warmth and protection from the elements. Chipmunks are nut gatherers, creating a stash for cold winter days. When the chipmunk visits this may indicate it is time to tighten your spending habits, allotting more funds into your savings account. If you have a chipmunk or family of chipmunks living in your yard you are likely to be blessed with abundance. A chipmunk sighting can also signify a need for planning for the future."


Also i read Chipmunks are also linked to trickster animals, so maybe look into trickster associated god/goddess

Hope this helped a bit :)

Doing research on the topic is a great idea.  You probably also want to consider, though, that you may live/work/play in an area that is prime chipmunk habitat and so seeing them everywhere may only mean that you see them everywhere.  ;)
