The owl symbolizes the feminine, the moon and the night. They are the bird of magic and darkness, prophecy and wisdom. The owl is linked to Athena. The owl is also known as the night eagle, a messenger of darkness and a guide through all the mysteries it contains. They are nocturnal hunters and therefore have the ability to see what others might miss. The owl will give you the gift of seeing what's really under the surface and not being fooled by appearances.
The owl is sometimes also called the cat with wings. These two creatures are linked to magic, heightened senses, intuition, and wisdom more than any other creature. Like the cat, the owl has keen hearing and eyesight in the night world – a place many fear. This fear can also make us uncomfortable around nocturnal creatures. The reason for this discomfort is because the night is dark and symbolic of the unknown – that which we cannot or do not want to see.
Humans are able to block out what we don't want to remember or deal with, for example, memories with negative emotions attached to them, traumas and accidents, etc. We deny that about ourselves that we don't wish to see. When dreaming, sometimes our unconscious mind becomes conscious. However, again these dreams are forgotten on purpose. Hiding from ourselves, our feelings, emotions and thoughts means we are being deceitful – to ourselves. If the owl has found you – it has the ability to unmask and see what is really under the surface. They pierce the illusion. On the other hand, perhaps you have the ability to pierce through illusions and see what is really going on behind the scenes, see what is going on in the darkness of others' souls. Maybe you've noticed that people are a little uncomfortable around you. Use this gift with care and compassion. It would be good for this gift to develop in all humans, as the owl teaches us to look into the darkest parts of our soul and learn from that darkness.
There are about 135 species of owl, 17 of which are found in North America. They come in all sizes, from the tiny miniature that lives inside the cactus in the desert, to the great horned owl – the only bird able to outfly the golden eagle. Seeing a great horned owl is awe-inspiring. They have furry claws that resemble the paws of a baby mountain lion with claws extended. Being meat eaters means they are a force to be reckoned with if challenged, or if something dear to them is threatened. Their large, forward-facing eyes give them a wise appearance. They have a greater range of motion in the neck than any other animal with a backbone. Owls turn their heads, not their eyes, which are still.
The owl is fully aware of its surroundings. Its night vision is so powerful that it can see prey when the light is the same as a lit candle 2,500 meters away. Their extremely soft and thick wings let them fly silently to attack their prey. Its ability to move unnoticed teaches us how to do the same. In addition to their near-supernatural eyesight, they have supernatural hearing.
Its secretive ways, silent flight, and distinctive calls such as hissing, shrill screeching, and hooting have made the owl a symbol of superstition and even fear in some parts of the world. Some native tribes consider owls a symbol of death, while others believe they represent the mysteries of shamanism and witchcraft. Owls are sometimes believed to visit those about to die. It doesn't mean a physical death so much as it means letting go of a part of you that no longer serves you. With its spectral senses, the owl helps guide us through the dark tunnels of fear, change and not knowing the light on the other side.
Owls are often complex people and don't like others to know what they are really thinking. This can sometimes cause misinterpretations, especially in personal relationships. Owl people also often have clairvoyant and psychic abilities. People born with this power animal have chosen a path that involves developing these gifts in order to help others, and they make excellent therapists, psychologists and counselors.
