One of my folks has been seeing an INSANE number of owls–some very in-your-face appearances, no less. Nothing subtle about it.
I sometimes have periods where I see certain animals repeatedly, or in a highly noticeable way. This is one way our “people” have of communicating with us, I believe. Butterflies, hummingbirds, squirrels and cats have all spoken to me at one time or another. (Go ahead and laugh. I’m too busy talking to my cats to notice, thank you very much.)
I personally associate owls with the High Priestess–keepers of hidden knowledge and deep insight. Wisdom, especially. When I play online Dungeons and Dragons with my husband, the wisdom spell makes an owl sound. Owls can see through the darkness, and turn their heads around. They’re often quiet, and high up. They observe from an advantageous perspective.
Wasn’t too long ago that my mom sent me this video of an Eagle Owl in slow motion. Noticeable since mom usually doesn’t send these kinds of things to me. It’s remarkable imagery!
Do you see owls? What do they mean to you?
