Birds and Other Animals I Adore

Marqesa Snowflake King

This is my westie Marqesa so she is obviously first on my list


 I love Peacocks they are amazing the colors are amazing !!!The peacock is a possessor of some of the most admired human characteristics, and is a symbol of integrity and the beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colour.It is also symbolic of Glory, Vision, Royalty, Spirituality, Awakening,Immortality, Refinement and Incorruptibility the two latter traits are the ones I hope to emulate. 

Blue Jay
I adore the blue jay who is also one of my favourite birds.Like the crow, magpie and raven, blue jays are talkative creatures utilizing a wide range of vocalizations to express their opinions. Indeed, their speech abilities are so advanced, that they are able to mimic other birds and even humans. Blue jay’s have been known to mimic hawk calls as a ploy to lure these birds of prey away from jay’s nests.People who have this animal as their totem have the gift of the gab.Symbolism of the blue jay includes,Loquaciousness,Communication,Determination,Assertiveness,Faithfulness,Intelligence,Advantage,Curiosity,Vibrancy,Clarity and Energy.Apart from the raven this Is the animal I think I embody the most.

The raven isn't really the animal I would have put in the list if i hadn't read its symbolism.The raven is symbolic of mind, thought and wisdom according to Norse legend, as their god Odin was accompanied by two ravens: Hugin who represented the power of thoughtand active search for information. The other raven, Mugin represented the mind, and its ability to intuit meaning rather than hunting for it. Odin would send these two ravens out each day to soar across the lands. At day's end, they would return to Odin and speak to him of all they had spied upon and learned on their journeys.
Odin was also known as the Raven God. He had many daughters known as Valkyries who could transform into ravens . I like to think Valkyries would ride as ravens after a bloody battle and whisper to the souls of fallen Norse warriors to raise up from their bodies come with them, where they would soar the skies to Valhalla. What a trip back home that would be.
