Analyze your surroundings as you move forward as clarity can lead you to a better path and avoid things you do want to do.

Armadillos are presenting to you for a multitude of reasons. This is not the end and there is no reason for you to worry as all of these dreams can be considered probabilities not certainties. Take all of this into account as it will be helpful as you continue on in your journey.
