Hope is the state of being hopeful. Strategy and action will move you past hope and toward success.-Opossum
If Opossum is laying across your path;
Alternatively Opossum is letting you know that the universe is working behind the scenes to fulfill your dreams. Be patient, allow things to develop, and trust that you will know the exact moment to make your move. Take a passive stance in all that is happening around you.
If Opossum is your Animal Totem;
You are highly intelligent and prefer to use your brains and your wits as opposed to your physical strength to get what you desire. You understand the use of diversion and strategy in all situations. You have a habit of coming out of nowhere to step into successful situations. Most people never see you coming until it’s far too late and you have won the game. You are known as a very sensible and down to earth individual by your peers, work well in group situations and tend to rise to the top inconspicuously. As career choices go you make a great magician, strategist, publicist or stylist.
