The meaning of the Owl
This bird of prey, together with the Owl , represents clairvoyance . Often associated with magicians and fortune tellers, it symbolizes understanding, the light after the solution of a problem. Being nocturnal animals they evoke darkness as a synonym of darkness and death but, while the Owl , with its sharp gaze penetrates the darkness, personifying the light as an exit from darkness indicating revelation, the Owl has a negative meaning, as a bird of the ill omen, herald of death. In fact we find a confirmation of the positive meaning of this nocturnal animal in ancient mythology.
