Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

May is such a beautiful month! It is a prelude to summer and it’s all about spending more time outside, challenging ourselves to take action, and finally start harvesting the seeds we planted during winter and at the beginning of the year. But, what’s may’s spirit animal? How can we work with its energy to make the most of it?

What is May’s spirit animal?

May’s spirit animal is a giraffe. May is our turning point. We are leaving spring behind and summer is approaching so it’s time for us to see things differently. A giraffe sees life from a different perspective.

Compared to the rest of the animals, the giraffe sees the world from a higher position, both for its long legs and for its neck. That’s what we should do! Let’s change our perspective, let’s live our life fully becoming more and more aware of ourselves so we will get to summer with the right attitude!

What does a giraffe symbolize?

Different perspective

The giraffe’s symbolism means that you can have a higher vision of reality, without losing connection with the real world. That is to say, the fact that you can see what others are not capable of appreciating does not make you stop having your feet on the ground.


The giraffe symbolizes self-acceptance and self-love. The giraffe is proud of the way it looks and acknowledges and embraces its uniqueness. Being different is not a bad thing, on the contrary, it should be a source of pride for you.

The giraffe, therefore, encourages you not to waste your life trying to be something other than what you really are. It teaches you to accept and love yourself, with your strengths and weaknesses, leaving aside the opinion that others may have.


The giraffe also emphasizes camouflage and elegance. Know how to blend in with the environment when it is necessary to try to go unnoticed and stand out when you have something important to contribute, but without eagerness to be prominent.

Closer looks

The most notable characteristic of the giraffe is its long neck, which allows it to observe closely what others cannot. This is identified with the need to closely observe your relationships and your role in each of them.


Grace and poise are other outstanding characteristics of the giraffe, which it does not lose even in those most difficult and challenging moments. This means that even when circumstances require you to be strong and courageous, you must not lose your kindness and good manners.


Even when you start to doubt everything, even when you feel low, you should try to stay optimistic and believe that things will return to their normal course.


Look to the future and learn to be excited about life’s prospects. Stand firm and fight to achieve your dreams, no matter how complicated or distant they may seem at first.

How to work with the energy of May’s spirit animal?

Embracing yourself

Embrace yourself! You are unique in your own way. Kind and gentle. Intuitive and perceptive, with a clear vision of the present and the future. You feel comfortable with yourself. If you don’t feel that comfortable with yourself, this is your chance to cast some beauty and confidence spell. Ask the giraffe spirit animal to guide you and use a figure or an image of this beautiful animal as a talisman for acceptance.

Be friendly

Your friendly personality should be boosted as it makes it easy for you to find the right balance. You adapt to all types of people, and you build strong and lasting relationships. You are practical, but at the same time creative.


Your natural intelligence makes you confident in life, even when things don’t turn out as well as you’d like. Spend more and more time with people around you and believe in yourself! Leave confrontation aside. If you need to, cast a friendship spell!

Express yourself

Your personality might be calm, although sometimes you get carried away by your emotions. In fact, although it is difficult for you to express yourself or communicate what you want to say, you have quite an emotional background. Don’t let this hold you back. Express yourself with creativity, communication, and more. Free yourself! The giraffe has your back!

Use your intuition

Your capacity for observation makes you able to notice things that others go unnoticed. Why? Your intuition is trying to guide you. Boost it with some divination and setting your intentions when spell casting. Ask the giraffe for some guidance and to let its energy pervade you. It will be amazing.

When is the giraffe most likely to appear in your life?

Sometimes, the giraffe is more likely to come into your life. For example:

  • When you need light and guidance. The giraffe brings you the gift of insight. When faced with a difficult path and an uncertain future, listen to what your heart and mind are telling you. Trust yourself and you will make the right decision.
  • When you are overwhelmed by both the present and the future. The giraffe inspires you to take each day as it comes and learn from it. The important thing is not to keep making the same mistakes and to integrate new experiences into your life to have better knowledge.
  • When you feel ready to explore your psychic awareness. If you are at a point in your life when spirituality begins to take on more importance, you will open a door for good things to happen in your life.


The giraffe has its gifts and talents that it uses to survive, and you must do the same. By making use of them you can become the person you want to become. When you find yourself in a dilemma and don’t know what to do, just let your instincts carry you and don’t allow fear to paralyze you. Forget complacency and work hard. The universe will conspire so that you can develop your full potential if you try to reach it.
