Owls are nocturnal creatures that have the ability to see in the dark and fly and hunt swiftly, without making a sound. Yes, those wide eyes are all-seeing! Owls are creatures of clairvoyance, keen perception, astral projection, instincts, and the occult.
In the world of Wicca, the owl is a very important symbol. Owls carry ancient knowledge of the powers of the moon, and represent both wisdom and darkness.
Owls in Greek Mythology
Owls are not only significant to us Wiccans, but across many cultures. Perhaps the most well known lover of owls is Athena, the Goddess of wisdom and the night…
Athena had an owl perched upon her shoulder or hand at all times. And this owl would reveal truths to her that she herself couldn’t see with her own eyes. In return, Athena would only speak only the full truth, making her the Goddess of wisdom.
