Horse totem is an ally to help you become extraordinarily cognizant of all that is occurring around you. Because they are prey animals, horses are overly aware of their surroundings. In fact, they have amazing vision and can see about 350 degrees. They have both monocular vision and binocular vision. With monocular vision, they can use both eyes separately because their eyes are on the side of their head. Horses also have binocular vision, which uses both eyes to see, increasing their field of view. Use Horse as an ally to increase your awareness and improve your situational awareness. Use your innate peripheral vision on a physical level (seeing with your eyes), and also use your peripheral vision mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. This encourages you to broaden your scope of understanding and realizations.
When Horse trots into your life, it signals a time to find your center so you can easily move forward at a moment’s notice. Horses have a strong sense of balance as well as the ability to quickly make a decision to flee or further assess the situation. This characteristic reminds you to use the information you gathered using your hypersensitive nature to assess whether or not real danger is near. Align with Horse energy for endurance and the ability to take action and move forward.
