Owl of Wisdom

Symbol of inner knowledge, unmasking, wisdom

In ancient Greece, the Owl was connected with Athena. Athena was the goddess of knowledge and the night. The owl assisted Athena in seeing the complete truth by presenting truths that Athena was unaware of. Witches in some West African countries think that if they employ specific owl parts in their incantations, they will have more potent magic. The Celts think that an owl can look into a person’s soul. They also think that anyone who see owl wings will be healed and comforted.

The owl is a bridging spirit because it can move between earth and heaven. They have excellent vision and are at ease in the dark. The user of an owl totem will gain insight and the capacity to discern if someone is lying to them. It also supplies the bearer with inner understanding.
