Moose Power Animal Symbol Of Self Esteem Courage

By Ina Woolcott

Moose symbolises the expression of joy when something has been accomplishment, not in a ‘show-off look at me I want recognition‘ kind of way, but in a true sense of sharing that springs from knowing how infectious joy is. Moose is also a symbol of being headstrong, longevity, wisdom, confidence, self-esteem, primal feminine energy and steadfastness.

The moose is one of the most ancient and unique of power animals, and lends you sacred and unique energy. An adult male can grow up to 7 feet tall and weigh up to 1200lbs. When mating males vociferate loudly and can be heard up to 6 miles and more away. When a female answers their call, they will rush to her and are ready to combat ANYTHING in their paths. Moose’ are fearless and resolute, making their presence known when they decide. However they also have the preternatural ability to camouflage themselves in spite of their hugeness and strength – they are able to move through their territory totally unseen. These traits in the moose teach us the power of presence and invisibility.

If moose is your power animal then you will probably be full of contradictions – clumsy yet graceful, huge but with the ability to move swiftly and soundlessly. Usually people with this power animal have excellent depth perception and are very wise. They also have an innate ability of being balanced – when to be gentle, when to be strong, what to say when and to whom.

The ability to shape shift is linked to mythology and merges with the teachings of shamanism and magic. If you are a moose person cultivating these skills is enhanced through studying.

Seeing a moose in the wild is amazing – the energy they embody is extraordinary. Their colossal antlers grow larger than those of any other antlered animal. Ancient myth calls these antlers ‘The Crown of Courage.’ The antlers are linked to the crown chakra in man. As the antlers grow, the crown chakra opens and widens giving those with this power animal a direct channel to universal knowledge.

The moose possesses a highly developed sense of smell and hearing. Babies are born with open eyes. People with this power animal are born with their inner eyes open already, they see things with extraordinary clarity – psychic awakenings in later life are rare for the moment moose people are born this is their awakening. They do have some of their most testing lessons in their childhood, but their fearlessness and mettle together with their direct connection to universal knowledge gives them the necessary aid needed to strengthen their self-esteem and find their place in the world.

Moose is a very powerful totem to have and will help you discover who you are and put you in touch with your congenital wisdom.

  1. I came across a moose on my travels in northern Ontario. It had been hit by a truck and on side of road still alive. Broken legs and one eye had been dislodged. All I had was a strap. i swear I talked to the moose. Put the strap around its neck. And I strangled it to put it out of its misery. It was aweful. I cried. However it had to be done. I feel a strong connection with this animal. He trusted me.
    I don’t know of any such story like mine.

    1. That is amazing, I feel that animal spirit will always be with you. I don’t know if moose is your main totem, but I’m sure it’s at least one of them now. In that one meeting its already shared some deep earth secrets with you. I wish you well & Blessings on your journey☺️…

  2. A cow moose touched her nose to mine through my living room window. I saw it coming through the field and started talking to it telling her it was ok to come and trim my willows. I know they like to eat the tender willows and she cam closer to my house I went inside and waited and watched her. Then she came up to my window three times once touching it.
    My father died back in 1976 41 years to the day the moose came to me.

  3. When I was just a teenager (maybe 14 or 15) I had a rare vivid dream in which I was walking along a path through the woods when suddenly a moose appeared and stood in the middle of my path. I was huge and magnificent. I tentatively approached it, and with each step it loomed even larger. I reached up to touch its face, and as I did I saw the veins in my arm dialate and felt it’s power surging through me. When I awoke I felt certain I had met my spirit animal.

    I’ve never forgotten that dream. It’s one of the few vivid dreams that I can still perfectly recall. To this day I still feel a special connection with these magestic creatures.

  4. I went hiking yesterday up in the uintas of Utah and came across a moose that was probably 3 years old. It stopped and stared at me as I connected with my heart and his heart. He then have me a nod and went about his business. Not five minutes later I came across another moose. A bit bigger and older. It was not as easily eased but did soften. I went back to my cabin and got in my car to go somewhere but took a wrong turn and came across a very large mother and her baby moose eating. I got out of the car and approached them, knowing that they can be mean and protective. I decided to connect with the mother thru heart energy and got less that 10 get away from her. She did not seem the least bit bothered. I then knew it was time to leave them alone and left. Four moose in one day seems a bit much to be without a message… I guess I can be dense so I suppose I needed a very clear message sent. I have been in need of all the qualities the moose brings. They are usually natural to me but lately they have alluded me. I came up to the mountains for a week long solitude retreat and the first day I meet four moose. I now know I’ll have the power to complete my struggles that are ahead of me this year. Thank you for help understanding the symbolism implied through these beautiful animals!
