The Crow

Crow
Are you "cawing,"
So I may know,
The secrets of balance,
Within my soul?
Or are you sending,
Your sacred "caw",
Just to remind me,
Of universal laws?


In Roman mythology crows used to be somewhat like white swans. A white crow watched over Apollo's pregnant lover. One day the crow came and brought bad news to Apollo and was turned black.

In China a three-legged sun crow was worshiped. It was the symbol of solitude.

The Athapaskan Indians of Alaska had a crow associated with creation.

In Biblical lore, the prophet Elijah was fed by crows while hiding in the wilderness.

Norse tradition has the crow or ravens as messengers for Odin.

The Crow was an emblem of the Celtic goddess Morrigan.

Romans regarded the crow as a symbol of the future because it cries Cras, Cras (tomorrow, tomorrow).

The crow along with the raven and vulture were northern Europe's symbol of the Death-goddess.

Valkyries ( said to be man-eating women) used the crow as a totem.

A Danish myth told of a witch named Krake (Crow), daughter of the Valkyrie Brunnhilde. Krake was a shape-shifter; sometimes a beautiful virgin, other times a hag, and still other times a monster or crow.

Perhaps the reason for the Goddess to appear as a crow might be linked with Coronis, "Crow" a death aspect of the pre-Hellenic earth mother Rhea.

Because of its color, black, it represents darkness, the maternal night.

Creative power and spiritual strength found through the Crone aspect.

Among many ancient cultures the crow was said to have mystic powers of foresight.

The Crow shares with the vulture carrion-eating tendencies and thus shares many points of identifi cation with the Goddess-as-Crone.

The crone Coronis, was a "crow" who was transformed into the virgin mother of the physician-god Asclepius; but in other forms appeared in myths as harbingers of the hero's death. The Goddess Badb transformed herself into a crow, "Badb Catha", to confront the Celtic hero Cu Chulainn and thereby announced his doom. And as said before Anglo-Danish version of the fateful Goddess was named Krake. "Crow", although she assumed human form long enough to become the mother of Siguard.

SYMBOLS OF THE CROW

The symbol known as crow's foot also called the Witch's Foot, carried dire meanings, Medieval superstition claimed that witches used crow's feet to cast death spells.
