(Formerly titled: “Standing Elk, The New Moon And Venus”)
According to some Native traditions, the Elk symbolizes endurance or stamina. Bull Elk is a powerfully masculine spirit.
The New Moon and Venus in this position are symbolic of the High Priestess in the Tarot deck. The most potent of feminine portents.
They seem to me a perfect combination of male-female balance and harmony.
In my interpretation, the placement of Venus between (above, yet behind) the antlers of Standing Elk represents fertility.
The Moon, in virtually all traditions is a representation of romantic love …. New Moon, a glowing bowl to hold the abundance of Creation. The marriage of Earth and Heaven.

The elk was standing silhouetted against the evening sky in early November. New Moon and Venus appeared just above the western horizon, about the same time of day, three months later.
