Owls, with their vaunted wisdom, have long been seen as a Wicca symbol, since Witches also seek to understand the Mysteries.
Owls’ perception pierces the veil of darkness. On a symbolic level, this means that they can see what is hidden to others with only ordinary sight. According to Gimbutas, “It is credited with profound wisdom, oracular powers, and the ability to avert evil.” (The Language of the Goddess, p 190.)

The Medicine Cards: The Discovery of Power Through the Ways of Animals微笑棋牌现金版下载 explains the Owl’s connection with the Goddess Athena - a Goddess much revered among Witches: “Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, had a companion Owl on her shoulder which revealed unseen truths to her. Owl had the ability to light up Athena’s blind side, enabling her to speak the whole truth, as opposed to only a half truth.” (p 121.)
As Wiccans, Truth is vital … both knowing it and speaking it.
So where do Owls get this wisdom? My pet theory: What makes Owl so wise is that she’s not distracted by questions of What, Where, When, Why, or How. She knows the only real question is ever and always, “WHO??”
