Cu or Dog, represents a Celtic Totem animal that has the powers of guidance, protection and loyalty.
the tradition of the dog as animal guide and guardian of the mysteries in Celtic culture is very old.
It is associated with the Dog Star ~Sirius that rises and sets with the Sun. Although white to blue-white in colour, Sirius might be called a rainbow star, as it often flickers with many colours.
With a wag of their tail, they show you their hearts.
a loyal companion, a true and dear friend,
forever by our side, from beginning to end
In the Celtic tradition, a dog is held in high esteem
other wise known as our custodians, of magic and all mysteries.
Dog was an endearment given to heroes, chiefs and warriors
as in Celtic lore, “Cu” was the prefix, heralding most honour.
The dog ‘Cu’ stands at the brink of birth, death and soul
carrying his loved ones across, life’s thresholds.
as a true spirit, bodyguard and ally guiding us back home.
Gods and goddesses, from way back when,
were depicted besides their dogs as their faithful friends
protecting and guiding, beloved souls of the dead
when leaving this world, to enter the next.
As the unconscious of our dreams,
life after death, is not what it may seem.
finding our healing and immortality there,
entering our next passage, into the beyond , we must fare.

Guardians of the Mysteries
Cu brings guidance and protection, acting as a loyal companion and friend on your journey in both this life and the next. If our intentions are good, then Cu will lead us over the threshold through darkness and the waters of the unconscious toward the shimmering realm of the Goddess.~ The Druid Animal Oracle ~ Philip and Stephanie Car-Gomm
