Deer carries the message of purity of purpose; of walking in the light to dispel shadows. Deer knows the work that it must do, and goes about that work with no fanfare and no need for personal glory or recognition.
Nothing can cause deer to change its path. There may be many who continually throw roadblocks in the way; deer steps over them or goes around them. Many give deer dozens of reasons why a thing won't work, but it only listens politely and then continues on. Deer people know what they must do, and will not be turned from its mission.
There are no shadows about deer; no ulterior motives; no hidden agendas; no lies or misrepresentations, and it is not possible for deer to knowingly hurt anyone or anything. Children sense this about deer people, and are drawn to them. They feel safe and not threatened. Deer works very well with children because of their innocence.
Deer carries a strong message, but with a gentle touch. Its determination to do its work is not destructive, but a quiet and powerful path toward completion of the task it has been given.
