The owl is a mystical creature that brings magic on its wings and is connected with the wisdom of the soul. Owls are often seen as mysterious, mostly because many owls are nocturnal and humans have always found night to be full of mystery and the unknown. Owls live within the darkness, which includes magic, mystery, and ancient knowledge. Related to the night is the moon, which owls are also connected to. It becomes a symbol of the feminine and fertility, with the moon’s cycles of renewal.
Mythology also relates owl to this wisdom and femininity. The owl was a sacred symbol for Athena, Goddess of wisdom, war and strategy. According to myth, an owl sat on Athena’s blind side at all times, so that she could see the whole truth. In return, Athena would only speak only the full truth, making her the Goddess of wisdom. Before Athena was depicted in human form, she was depicted in owl form. An owl of Athena adorns the back side of an ancient Athenian silver dollar. In other ancient images, Athena is seen with an owl perched on her hand or flying over her shoulder. The owl’s representation as a wise animal is attributed to Athena and wisdom in ancient Greece. One source states owls were kept in Athena’s sacred temple in Athens in honor of the goddess. As a creature of the night, the Celts and Egyptians regarded Owl as a gatekeeper to other realms, particularly the souls of the dead. In some stories this bird actually accompanies a soul so it doesn’t get lost on its journey.
When you connect with Owl as a Spirit Animal, you’ll find your connection with the Universe growing stronger, as will your awareness of lunar cycles. Embrace your inner Goddess, weave your spells by the light of a full moon and really listen to your inner voice. Overall Owl is a symbol of being able to navigate any darkness in our life with strength and wisdom. This spirit brings clarity, truth, intuitive knowledge, freedom, and a strong connection with the mystical world.
