Crow, Power Animal, Symbol of Sacred Law, Change
By Ina Woolcott
Many cultures consider crows to be the keepers of the Sacred Law, for nothing escapes their keen sight. To have a Crow as a power animal is extremely powerful stuff. When we meditate on the crow and align with it, we are instilled with the wisdom to know ourselves beyond the limitations of one-dimensional thinking and laws. We are taught to appreciate the many dimensions of both reality and ourselves, and to learn to trust our intuition and personal integrity.
Crows often appear in groups, and though there seems to be no variation in their caw-ing to each other, each caw actually has a different meaning. Their complex vocabulary is one sign of their intelligence, and is also a sign of their significance as power animals. When a crow explores something new, others watch closely to see what happens and then learn from it. They often make great noise when hunters are around, warning deer and other birds. Crows recognise potential danger and hence always post lookouts when feeding. This is their most vulnerable time. This helps us understand that we must watch what we believe, to test our habitual ideas about reality against a more universal standard.
Without paying careful attention, we are unable to understand the language of crows, this signifies the fact that we can't always see beyond our own cultural limitations. These limitations include certain moral codes of right and wrong, along with 'rules' that accompany these codes.
Throughout history there have been many (unnecessary) conflicts and wars between humans due to differing moral and religious beliefs. To truly create a new age of love, peace and harmony it is of high importance for us to be able to transcend our particular cultural limitations and to hold in our hearts and souls what we share as spiritual beings in human form. We are all connected, infinitely and composed of the same 'stuff'. We need to realise that hurting others only hurts ourselves. Crow is the bird which represents this transcendence.
Crow can also teach us to be mindful about judging people automatically. Be mindful of your opinions and actions. You need to walk your talk, to speak your truth and to know your life's mission. Again, trust your intuition and personal integrity, to create your own standards, whether or not they match those of the world around you. Be an individual, think for yourself, don't necessarily follow the crowd!
In the courting process the male crow's voice takes on a singing quality. This lets us see what the basis of sacred law is, unconditional love, the one unfailing principle by which we can test our own principles.
Crow is an omen of change. Crows live in the void and have no sense of time, therefore being able to see past, present and future simultaneously. They unite both the light and the dark, both the inner and the outer. Crow is the totem of the Great Spirit and must be held with utmost respected. They are representations of creation and spiritual strength.
Crows are messengers, telling us about the creation and magic all around us, that is available to us just for the asking. Look for opportunities to bring into being the magic of life. The striking black colour of the crow represents the colour of creation. It is the womb out of which the new comes into existence. Black is the colour of the night, giving birth to the light of a new day.
Crows are sly and can be deceptive in their actions. They have been known to build false nests high in treetops to confuse predators. Their nests are built very high up, giving them the chance to watch everything that is going on around them.
As crows are adaptable to all environments and will eat almost anything, they can survive in almost any situation. Crow is surrounded by magic, unseen forces and spiritual strength. If crow enters your life, get out of your familiar nest, look beyond your present range of vision, listen to the message(s) in its caw and act accordingly.

Birth Totem - Crow - September 23rd - October 22nd
Birth Totem Crow is an individual whose outer personality is driven by the quest to bond with another. By design, the crow is a highly curious creature, imbued with a remarkable degree of intelligence. Despite such intelligence, this heightened curiosity will often lead Crow in the path of unforeseen danger. As he follows the glimmering call of a shiny penny, he is oblivious to the encroaching threat of an oncoming vehicle, so intent is he upon retrieving the fascinating object. Birth totem crow individuals can become so focused upon the goal of attaining partnership, that other areas of their daily life may tend to be ignored, eventually leading to some crisis of faith, health or practical consideration that will realign them, at least temporarily, to the bills needing to be paid or the vehicle in need of repair.
In Nature, the crow is part of a community of other crows, and thus, they are very social, preferring the company of their fellow winged ones (and even the company of two-leggeds), to being alone. Like their animal brothers and sisters, birth totem crow will seek companionship and interactions with others almost compulsively. The underlying force that drives one who is operating from the personality center of this birth totem, is a fear of being alone and faced with their own company. Because so much of the focus and attention for one with this birth totem is exerted upon relating to, and pleasing "others" they have learned very little about themselves and thus, have not developed the relationship with the inner self that is requisite for a soul to fully integrate as it moves along the sacred hoop of physical life.
Once crow individual takes the time to go within and learn about themselves, their role along the Red Road, and the lessons they have chosen to come and learn, they will then discover all of the shiny and fascinating aspects of themselves that they have been blessed with. This may then take them on a journey toward a deep and abiding relationship to the self, consequently adding even more to their relationships with others. Thus, the attainment of the higher intent for this birth totem may be had - to know true balance and harmony.
Birth Totem Crow
September 22 - October 22
Keeper of the Sacred Law
Crow knows the Unknowable Mysteries of Creation and is Keeper of All Sacred Law. This Totem signifies first-hand knowledge of a higher order of right and wrong than that indicated by Human Law. Crow see the physical and spiritual world, ( as humanity interprets them ) are an illusion and can simultaneously see the past, present, and future. Crow merges the light and darkness, seeing both inner and outer reality. ~ excerpts from the "Medicine Cards" by Jamie Sams
Crows are Protectors of Ancient Records and Knower of the Unknowable Mysteries of Creation. They are symbols of creation and spiritual strength. To have a Crow Totem is very powerful. It is the Totem of the Great Spirit and as such, must be respected.
Crow is self-empowered because he knows who he is. Honor spiritual truth and you will know true power as well. Crow is a shape-shifter who can teach us that we can be anything we desire.
Personal integrity are your watch-words and your guide in life. Crow medicine is honoring the self, your boundaries and limitations. If you have a Crow Totem, your prime path is to be mindful of your opinions and actions.
The appearance of Crow is always a message from our unconscious, for so often Crow warns us of danger, reminds us of our disappointments, and reveals the darker aspects of our character. The key is to be willing to tell the truth regardless of the consequences.
Crow's gifts are his voice and his keen eyesight. Crow is a wonderful teacher, so be a good student ~ one who is prepared to see from afar and speak with great clarity. With Crow Totem, you speak in a powerful voice when addressing issues that, for you, seem out of harmony, out of balance, or unjust.
Crow lives in the void and has no sense of time; therefore, it sees past, present and future simultaneously. Crow merges both light and dark, both inner and outer.
The striking black color of Crow represents the color of creation. It is the womb out of which new is born. Black, the color of night, gives birth to the light of a new day. Crow is a daytime bird reminding us that magic and creation are present in both. Their ability to shift between the known and unknown worlds indicates new journeys.
Crow is also the guardian of ceremonial magic, calling to us about the creation and magic that is alive in the world today and available to us. Look for opportunities to create and manifest the magic of life.
Crow Totem people are masters of illusion. Do not try to figure Crow out. It is the power of the unknown at work, and something special is about to happen!
In any healing circle, Crow is present. Crow guides the magic of healing and the change in consciousness that will bring about a new reality and dispel disease or illness. You can rest assure whenever Crows are around, magic is nearby and you are about to experience a change in consciousness. Crow can give you the courage to enter the darkness of the void, which is the home of all that is not yet in form.
Crow is an omen of change. When you meet Crow, he could be telling you that there will be changes in your life and that possibly you should step back from the usual way you view reality and look into the inner realms. Be prepared to let go of your old thinking and embrace a new way of viewing yourself and the world.
The Crow signals that you have transcended mortal law, and to permit your own higher self to become your leader.
When you learn to allow your personal integrity to be your guide, your sense of feeling alone will vanish. Your personal will can then emerge so that you will stand in your truth. Be willing to walk your talk, speak your truth, and know your life’s mission, and balance past, present, and future in the now. Shape-shift that old reality and become your future self. Allow the bending of physical laws to aid in creating the shape-shifted world of peace.
Like Crow, we need to see the connection between past, present, and future. Crow’s message is clear ~ what you think today creates your future. Honor the present in love, forgiveness and gratitude. You can change your past, your present, and mold your future.
Crow looks with one eye and then the other to observe everything from all sides.
If Crow flies into your life, get out of your familiar nest, look beyond your present range of vision, listen to its caw and act accordingly.
Stay out of denial, stay in integrity, and speak your truth!
