CROW SPIRIT | TRUST YOUR INTUITION AND PARANORMAL GIFTS.
In modern western culture, crows symbolize death, the afterlife, wisdom, intelligence, adaptability, prescience, fortune, destiny, transformation, and the future. Crow symbolism is both positive and negative, and they’re seen as both good and bad omens depending on where in the world you are.
But what’s remarkable is that crows (especially ravens) have rich symbological meaning in practically every culture and society worldwide, including Ancient Mesopotamian, Mesoamerican, Greek, Roman, Indian and South Asian, Norse, Pacific, Celtic, medieval European, Christian and modern Western cultures.
The French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss posited that ravens gained mythical status as they mediate life and death by consuming the flesh of dead animals. These scavengers frequently appear next to death, which, combined with their intelligent behaviors, captures the human imagination.
Death is one of the most common denominators of crow symbolism. Crows, ravens, and many other corvids are scavengers and appear next to dead animals, hence why they’re often linked with death itself.
Serbian and other old European writings and poems frequently refer to the crow as a symbol of death. For example, in Swedish folklore, ravens are the ghosts of people murdered without a proper Christian burial, and, in old German storytelling, they’re seen as damned souls.
In Celtic folklore and mythology, ravens are associated with the goddess Morrigan, who is associated with death and war, and guard the natural environment. In Welsh mythology, ravens and crows are associated with the warrior god Brân the Blessed, which means “crow” or “raven.”
In Central Asian folklore, e.g., Yakut mythology from Turkey, ravens are seen as evil spirits of death, war, and violence.
After the battle, crows and other corvids arrive in their droves to feed upon the flesh of the dead. It’s often said that where death goes, crows follow.
Ravens and crows are frequently associated with prescience, fortune-telling, or the future. For example, the Norse God Odin sacrificed an eye for wisdom and instead relied on two ravens for sight, Huginn and Muninn, who flew across the world and delivered him information. Their names roughly translate as ‘thought’ and ‘memory.’
They’re also associated with the Greek god Apollo, who sent a white raven as a messenger. Apollo sent the white raven with his lover Coronis to keep an eye on her. The raven watched Coronis fall in love with a man named Ischys, and when Apollo was informed, he cursed Coronis and scorched the white raven’s feathers, turning them black.
In native or indigenous American and Canadian mythology, e.g. the Kwakiutl or Kwakwaka’wakw of British Columbia, ravens were used in divination rituals.
In the Bible, ravens are often associated as messengers. In the Old Testament, the crow is depicted as Noah’s helper. Book of Genesis 8:6-7 reads;
“After forty days Noah opened a window he had made in the ark and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth.”
The Bible also refers to crows in resilience, strength, survival, and uncleanliness. Judaism refers to crows and ravens as both dark entities and unclean due to their proximity to death.
