Barn Owl can hunt in total darkness. Unlike most other owls, the Barn Owl has asymmetrical ear openings, allowing for precise triangulation of sound. Barn owl reminds us of the importance of listening at all levels, however mundane or magical, and to discernment in the application of the messages we receive.
As a totem, Barn Owl shares clairvoyant and clairaudio abilities. This speaks to seeing past illusion and to locating that which we need through deep listening, drawing resources from what may seem like nothing. Barn Owl is able to create a “neural map” of auditory space. Barn Owl helps pinpoint what is needed, and grant a picture of the unknown with more detail and accuracy than any other animal.
Barn Owl is a shapeshifter, silent, rarely seen. She is associated with the moon, and the crone, and with abundant creativity and production. Seeing Barn Owl during the day indicates a message about fear of the unknown and the courage to navigate it. As a monogamous bird and an abundant hunter, Barn Owl symbolizes steady commitment to what we are creating in the world. She is an ally in times when our relationship to productivity is called into question. Barn Owl reminds us not to focus on creativity as a means of being seen but rather as a means of listening.
