It is interesting that we drew this card this week as we have been watching the owl with her babies hatch and grow on a live video feed from San Marcos, CA.
It has been an amazing experience to watch the interaction between the babies and the parents. The mother hovering over her eggs, keeping them warm with her wings was just awesome.
It is important to remember, however, that the animals on the Voice of the Soul cards are only symbolic. We tend to overlay human emotions on animals as we observe them, which makes them somehow less than they really are. The symbolism of the owl card is that we all have the ability to see “into the dark” of any situation. That is, read what is not on the surface. The owl is a very effective hunter in the dark, and we can develop great skill at “hunting information” that isn’t obvious. We can do it without being intrusive AND we can be wise with the information we uncover. So if you run into a situation this week that doesn’t make sense on the surface, ask your higher self to help you “see” what is really going on. Wisdom is always a good thing!
