The Raven is a bird of prophecy and magical knowledge and has been associated with the Celtic Goddess Morrigan and other Crones. It is a bird of the darkness. In that darkness, healing, wisdom, and the unfolding of mysteries happens for those who still their minds enough to allow it to enter. The Raven is one who gives gifts but it is also a trickster. The Raven’s gifts are for those who have the sincerity to try to make use of these priceless gifts of light and insight. The Raven holds the Pentacle, symbol of the elements that make up the whole. Thes elements are Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Spirit. Together, the two powerful symbols remind us that our path through our lives calls us to remember that we need the Raven’s gifts to truly feel our connection to the rest of existence.
