She sees time simultaneously and merges light with dark, consciousness and unconscious, inner and outer worlds.

Seeing a single Crow can either signify that bad luck is headed your way or that big changes are coming.

The crow tells us to look for magic and to look to the creative force and to do as she does and harmonize the contradictions within us.

If bad luck is headed your way try to discover the good hidden in the bad to bring yourself into a place of greater understanding.

Crows in Celtic Mythology

In Celtic Myth and Folklore, the Crow was traditionally associated with goddesses. A crow’s call was thought to foreshadow imminent war or the death of prominent people much like the Scottish bean-sidhe or Banshee.

In Irish mythology, the war goddess Badb name means ‘Crow’ and she would take the bodily form of a crow when flying over the carnage on battlefields. Whichever side was out of Badb’s favour would be stricken with fear, panic, and confusion on the battlefield, disabling the soldiers, ensuring the favoured side would see victory.

  1. I was on my way out my door, to my uncle’s funeral. My son says mom you’re about to step on that dead bird! I panicked. It was right in front of my door skin ripped off guts showing. Went to the funeral it was totally different from any other so bright joyful,but also emotional badly. Can anyone tell me what this means?

    1. What did it mean to you? That is a really grotesque image! When you read back the story you can replace the bird with the major death that had occurred in your life. You almost didnt notice it but then the funeral made you face it big time! Something about what happen was exactly what you needed at that time. What insights did you have about your own life after?
