**Owl Symbology: "To the ancient Greeks the owl was associated with the goddess Athena, and it was a symbol of higher wisdom. To the early Christian Gnostics the owl is associated with Lilith, the first wife of Adam who refused to be submissive to him. Owl Medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection and magic, both black and white." - Ted Andrews, Animal Speak book.
