 Spirit | Don’t engage in power struggles.

Loons mate for life, and their medicine is about loyalty, family, and deep caring for one another. If you’re experiencing a relationship fraught with power struggles, you are NOT practicing Loon medicine. If your relationship has BECOME a power struggle, Loon has appeared to remind you that this is a time of equal sharing and equal happiness. Something is amiss and Loon thinks you already know what it is. Are you looking to uncover long-held, hidden emotions? Want to achieve self-acceptance? Loon, as a Spirit, can help! Loon teaches you how to dive deep into your subconscious, all while showing you how to find happiness without changing who you are.

While often spoken of as the “Common Loon”, its attractive face and bright garnet-colored eyes make Loon anything but ordinary. Throughout Europe, a better designation for the creature is “The Great Northern Diver:” A name reflecting the Loon’s mastery of the Water Element.

When searching for food, the Loon’s dive is swift and easy as it descends to a depth of 180 feet beneath the water’s surface. Loon can remain there for fifteen minutes if the need arises. Its diving abilities cause Loon to symbolize emotional exploration and inner journey work.

After they emerge from the water’s depths, Loon has a relaxed and content attitude. They float, putting one foot up in the air and preening themselves. The waggling of their foot in the air also happens when dallying, but there’s a purpose to it; the position helps cool the Bird on sultry days. Loon, therefore, symbolizes resourcefulness, cleverness, and the ability to keep a cool head or maintain a moderate temperament.

All the Loons’ aquatic talent doesn’t translate into land mobility. Observing the Loon’s movements, they present with an awkward shuffle. Getting into its nest is no simple matter. The lack of mobility doesn’t seem to deter them, however. The Loon’s difficulty with movement on land is just part of an average day. Loon Spirit accepts itself as-is: Both its limitations and wonders.

As a family unit, Loons are adorable. The chicks climb up into the feathers of either parent’s back, falling asleep there. So, bird watchers may glimpse an odd foot or tiny wing sticking out from the mother or father Loon’s downy feathers. While their eyes are open at birth, young Loons depend on the parents for food. As they move, they watch and mimic their parents’ behavior, including the dramatic pose of an elevated Loon. Here, Loon comes to represent family, unity, role-modeling, and exceptional parenting.

One routine the chicks struggle with is diving. They can do it within about a day after hatching, but their downy feathers make them buoyant. After but a few seconds, little Loons bob right back up to the surface of the water. It will be a week before they can reach the bottom, but they keep trying. In Loon’s world, size doesn’t matter. Results come from practice, patience, and having a positive outlook!

Both adult and baby Loons alike have excellent water vision. They can see beneath the surface when just a few days old. Eyesight helps them locate food and predators while also giving the Birds energetic associations with spiritual insight and clairvoyance.

Excellent communication is part of Loon’s repertoire of impressive behaviors. Chicks use tiny yelps, peeping, and high-pitched wails when in distress, whereas adults cluck or hoot. A loud wail lets adult Birds contact other Loons. All Males have a unique warble, identifying them and their territory to potential mates and intruders alike. Loon’s vast vocalizations cause the creature to symbolize finding one’s voice, self-expression, and eloquent speech.

Folk names for Loon include “Walloon,” “Guinea Duck,” and “Ember-Goose.” Another title, “Call-up-a-Storm” is prevalent in New England people saw Loon as a weather prophet. Loon’s associations with divination coupled with its varied vocals link the creature to warnings, particularly those received through signs and omens.

In Canada, the one-dollar coin bears the title “Loonie” because Loon is the Bird for Ontario. A laughing call of a Loon is where the phrase “Crazy as a Loon” originates. The connotation of the word “Loonie”as meaning “insanity,” and popular idioms tie the Loon to concepts like rebellion, silliness, non-conformity, the uncanny, and all things unusual. The word “Loon” also links to the word “lunar,” drawing a link between the Loon and Moon Energy.

Loon spirit announces something “brewing” in your life. The Bird’s presence might portend a process through which you will struggle because it’s raw, new, and challenging. You will unveil unique gifts buried deep within your soul if you see matters through to the end.

Loon, as a Spirit, directs your focus on the Water Element, which ties to the Astral, psychic matters, emotions, and the dream world. If you have the opportunity to meditate near water, do so. Connecting with the energetic influence of water allows you to hear the Loon’s messages with greater clarity. Loon’s presence suggests it’s time to consider the nudges that come from your Higher Self or subconscious mind.

Because the Bird can stay under the water so long, a Loon Spirit may attempt to teach you a lesson about controlled breathing for both spiritual and mundane situations. Sacred breath is vital, refreshing, and empowering. As you gain better command over the pace of each inhale and exhale, it improves understanding of your visions and emotional states.


The Seven of Wands has a similar meaning to the Five of Wands; both cards indicate struggles after the initial fulfillment and satisfaction of an event. The Seven of Wands however is different as it is about the struggle that you need to go through to maintain your position, rather than to attain it. This is about the difficulties we face to continue to have success. You should be ready for the competition to you defend your title, and to prove yourself. Others are going to desire the same results that you do, so you need to stay ahead of them.

There will be challenges to the success of your project or venture from an outside source. You must remain dedicated to your desires, and with a clear purpose and effort, you will overcome them.

The overall meaning of the Seven of Wands is to hold your ground, no matter what is challenging your position.

The overall meaning of the Seven of Wands is to hold your ground, no matter what is challenging your position. You will need to defend this position and take a stand against those who are aiming to take your spot.

The Snow Moon in February is aptly named after abundant snowfall.

Storm Moon, Ice Moon, and Snow Moon were common Celtic and Old English names.
