TOAD

 

Inner Strength, Luck

 

The appearance of a Toad heralds a successful time of drawing upon
and using our inner resources. 
Toads are associated with money and luck
especially changing your luck from bad to good. 
People with a Toad totem can see things and people more clearly. 

A Toad heralds the need for self-examination. 
Ask these questions: 
Am I hesitating to act and missing opportunities? 
Am I allowing fear to hinder progress? 
Have I forgotten my inner strength?
