Owl totem is an ally that helps you see, hear, and know what needs to be known by interpreting the messages from both the physical and spirit worlds. Owl allows you to “see in the dark” and “read between the lines.” When Owl swoops into your life, it signals a time to pay attention to what is going on behind the scenes. Owl alerts you that there is more to notice than you might see at a glance.
In mythology, Owl is a companion of Athena (Greek) and Minerva (Roman). By either name, these are the goddesses of wisdom. Athena is also known as Pallas. It is said that Athena’s owl sat on her blind side so that she would always see or know the truth. In many cultures, owls are known as symbols for spiritual and intellectual wisdom.
