The OWL is a mysterious night bird surrounded by superstition. The owl is thought to possess wisdom and powers of magic. In some cultures it is believed to be the reincarnated soul of ancestors or a messenger from the spirit realm. Owls have excellent vision and hearing and are effective hunters. One pair of nesting owls can kill as many mice as ten cats. They see well in the daytime and at night, being able to switch rapidly from distant to microscopic vision. Their hearing is also acute and they use clicks to echolocate prey. Owl energy is associated with clairvoyance and clairaudience. Owl’s wings are designed so that they can fly silently. People with owl energy tend to be very perceptive, and seem to perceive our deepest unexpressed thoughts.
