When the Stag appears on your path, he tells you to take pride in all that you do. Be the leader and hold your head high, and others will follow by your example. Ask yourself these questions: “Am I following my highest path?” “Am I acting in integrity and doing the best I can?” or “Am I held back by the kind of pride that cuts me off from life through arrogance, or its reverse, low self-esteem?”
The Stag asks you to be a leader, be proactive (with the highest intentions), and to always ask, “What is the highest good for all?” Arrogance and its reverse are both places of alienation and ways to avoid responsibility and accountability.
The Stag leads you out of both difficult places into the kind of pride that reminds you that you’re always in service to the God/Goddess in every step you take. You may already be there, in which case, you should be proud and happy. Look how far you’ve come! Rejoice, for the Stag always leads you to a higher place with a sure and steady footing.
