Native Americans believe Owl Medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magic. Owl is called “Night Eagle” on several medicine wheels used by American Indian teachers. Traditionally, Owl sits in the East, the place of illumination. Since time immemorial, humanity has been afraid of the night, the dark and the unseen – waiting fearfully for the first crack of morning light. Conversely, night is Owl’s friend.
Owl hunts its prey at night. Not only can Owl see in the dark, it can also accurately pinpoint and identify any sound. This gives it a great advantage. An Owl feather is silent. You cannot hear Owl when it flies.
Owl is often times the medicine of sorcerers and witches. Is it any wonder that in many cultures Owl is a symbol for wisdom? This is because Owl can see that which others cannot, which is the essence of true wisdom. Where others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what is there.
Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, had a companion Owl on her shoulder which revealed unseen truths to her. Owl had the ability to light up Athena’s blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth, as opposed to only a half truth.
Owl Medicine asks you to use your powers of keen, silent observation to intuit some life situation. Owl is befriending and will aid in seeing the total truth. Owl can bring you messages in the night through dreams and meditation. Pay attention to the signals and omens. Truth always brings further enlightenment.
