 Hi all :-)
I've not had much experience with totems aside from Spider but recently Owl has come into my life.  I have a basic idea of the associations for Owl-wisdom, stealth,etc but I'd love to know more about the gifts and lessons Owl has to bring.  Please help!  I'd be very grateful :-)

Owl Wisdom

Owl medicine is symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection, and magick, both black and white. Since ancient times, the owl has been associated with wisdom, deep learning and the Underworld deities. Later, it came to be connected with black magick. It is a bird of prey and a night hunter. The owl is a powerful, noiseless flyer with good hearing and sight. It is armed with a vicious beak and talons for protection and hunting. It is so alert to its surroundings that it appears to turn its head completely around when watching something.

There are two families: the typical owls, with about 167 species; and the barn owls, with about 14 species. There are anatomical differences between the two families, but many generalizations apply to both.
