Birds as Omens

Today, my boyfriend inspired me to do a post about birds and what they are as omens. He got freaked out because he said a black bird came and pecked him.

So, lets delve into that for a bit.

Black birds such as crows and ravens have this stigma attached to them that somehow they’re “bad luck” or that they bring death and all sorts of superstitions of that nature. This is probably due to the fact that predominately in literature and even movies they’re glamorized as an animal of misfortune. Just read a story by Edgar Allen Poe lol

This is far from the truth. Black birds are actually a GOOD sign. They’re a sign that prosperity, passage, and/or protection. In fact, I told my boyfriend that the bird was probably just trying to get his attention because the bird’s probably like hellllloooo dude, I’m trying to tell you something good is going to happen! Pay attention to me! So he got pecked lol. They are tricksters too, after all! When we think of animals, a lot of the time we just think of fellow creatures who inhabit and share the earth with us. But they’re sometimes more than that. They can act as familiar and spirits of the Earth.

Owls on the other hand? Yeah, they are the ones who are actually an ill omen. Owls are beautiful. They’re majestic. They hold an air of mystery. However, if you see an owl or one comes to you, usually that means that there will be an impending death to someone you know. Not you, necessarily. But someone you know.

If you see a blue jay, it’s time to rethink your life. It’s a sign that you’re doing too much at once and you need to commit to one thing instead of stressing over a bunch of different things. It’s also a sign to stand your ground with others around you and can even mean someone close to you is lying or trying to pull something over on you.

Cardinals are known to be encouragers. If you see a cardinal, it’s letting you know to stay confident and believe in yourself. You’re on the right path.

Hawks bring blessings and good news as well.

A dead bird in your path signifies turmoil and personal destruction coming to an end. So, it’s actually a good sign. It doesn’t mean you’re going to die.

Of course, everyone’s own experiences are different. Sometimes, you just have to listen to what nature is trying to say and inform you. If you have any questions about a particular bird or want to add anything to the list, let me know! Or you can just reblog anything you would like to add💚

Much love to all of you 💚🙏🏼💚🙏🏼
