This Week's Totem: Owl

Key words and phrases: Wisdom, Mystery, Transition, Messages, Intelligence, Mysticism, Protection, Secrets

The owl is symbolic in many different cultures:
Greece: Owl was the totem of Athena, the Greek goddess of learning and wisdom.
Celtic societies, Egypt, Hindu culture: Owl is the guardian of the Otherworld or Underworld, and protector of the dead.
Native American nations: Owl is the symbol of wisdom, foresight, and the keeper of sacred knowledge.
Medieval Europe: Owls were said to be the form witches and wizards took as a disguise.
West African and Aboriginal Australian cultures viewed the owl as a messenger of secrets, kin to sorcerers, as well as companions to seers, mystics and medicine people.

Owl sees and knows the truth. It's ability to navigate through the darkest night and bring back nourishment for itself and others is the foundation of this essence.

When you have lost your way, owl essence will guide you back to your proper path and wisdom. Owl medicine can help a person to extract secrets, to see that which is hidden in the darkness and is very powerful for soul retrievals for this reason.

Many shamans, psychic healers and mediums have owl medicine either as a primary totem or can call upon one as needed. They can see clear through to the core reason for any type of imbalance and then they can spot the proper medicine needed to heal the imbalance.

Owl people tend to be very wise, often beyond their years because they see far more deeply than many others do. They tend to be mystical, rather magical people and often are highly interested in magic and ritual at which they are extremely gifted. They can find secrets and things being hidden (deceptions) quite easily.

Owl's message is to look more deeply into yourself and others before making a decision this week. Your  intuition is telling you something- heed what it has to say.
