The creative mind of humanity has often embellished on the natural forms. Very often a legendary creature is born out of a combination of an animal and human form, two different animals, or a creature that is given qualities that it simply doesn't have in the wild. These hybrid beings combine the best of both worlds, offering us some unique characteristics to guide us on our path in life.
Perhaps you're a pure spirit who can soar to new heights and inspire all those around you. If that description fits you perfectly, there's a good chance that Pegasus is going to be a strong match for you. Should you tell us that you frequently get roped into other people's drama and that you're a highly creative individual, we're likely to be convinced that this is your spirit animal.
On the other hand, maybe you're someone who sees their role as the protector and guardian of your people. If you find yourself constantly on the lookout for evil influences that might be invading your homeland, the Griffin seems like it might be a strong candidate for the role of your spirit animal. When you also mention that you've been with your significant other for ages and you're intensely devoted to them, then the combination of part lion, part eagle seems just right for you.
Are you ready? We're about to step through the looking glass to another realm.
