The fox is very much a creature of the night and, along with its dog relatives, is among the most gregarious of the carnivores. These agile-minded personalities are always active and — although they never go out of their way to harm others — have developed a reputation for slyness and manipulation; with a sharp mind and equally sharp tongue. It’s best to stay on their good side, especially since they like to rise to the top of their chosen path.
Often underestimated by its size, the fox is a close relative of both wolf and hound personalities and displays the typical canine qualities of loyalty, passion, and creativity. Sometimes a shy, retreating individual, the fox’s stature as a carnivore defines its survival strategy. Because it cannot succeed using brute force alone, the fox must rely on its sharp mind and engaging personality to garner resources. Because it spends so much time in its head — giving the impression that it’s trying to outsmart everyone — the fox isn’t surprised that others find its intellectual pursuits quite intimidating.
Foxes are fussy eaters and, with an appreciation for the finer things in life, demand quality in entertainment, food, and friends. Their love of exploration dovetails with their passion for overcoming challenges, which is why foxes are often found mountain climbing or journeying to exotic, forbidden places.
Fox’s prefers to live in smaller cozy places, and is usually organized and neat. Choosing subtlety and cunning over brute strength, they are unquestionably hunter personalities and are usually in good physical shape and perform well in pastimes that challenge both mind and body.
Foxes rely on their keen intelligence heavily and despite their roguish reputations, foxes are quite discerning in their choice of mates.
Beneath its even-handed exterior is a deeply emotional core that the fox keeps well-guarded. The fox prefers nurturing to being nurtured, which is really just a fox ploy to avoid intimacy… A fox will never reveal its vulnerabilities unless it finds a mate who it intellectually respects, and emotionally trusts.
