Owls have large eyes and keen eyesight which enables them to see and catch their prey in the darkness of night. Owl people are very observant as well with very little escaping their attention. They have a keen eye for detail as well as a deep insight into whatever they find of interest or importance. The owl is associated with hidden wisdom and the Moon, which is the light that shines through the darkness.

Owl people usually have very good intuition, and may often find that they become aware of certain things before it becomes obvious to others. Though they are drawn to the esoteric and mysterious, they are usually able to keep themselves grounded in practical reality. From time to time, Owl people may feel the urge to disappear into the darkness like their totem animal.

They may become quiet and withdrawn, and may even feel the need to be alone and will thus avoid being in the company of others. They may even suddenly break away from a situation or project in which they have been deeply involved. Because of their sudden withdrawal, Owl people may appear to others as antisocial. They might be and feel misunderstood by others and, during these times, may inadvertently hurt the feelings of those around them.


Volcanic lava that cools and solidifies very quickly forms into a type of natural glass called Obsidian, the totem mineral associated with the Long Snows Moon. Being a natural glass, Obsidian is highly reflective and can reflect a person’s thoughts to the one wearing it, bestowing upon them a sort of clairvoyance.

Obsidian can be very sharp and can help one to cut straight to the heart of a matter. It can also sharpen one’s outer and inner vision, thus enabling them to have foresight, the ability to see into the future.

Obsidian is a powerful grounding and centering stone which grounds its wearers to the Earth’s energy, and teaches them how to use this energy within themselves to center their being with the Earth, thus bringing about stability.
