What Does It Mean When an Owl Crosses Your Path?
For the superstitious, an owl crossing one's path means that someone is going to die. However, more generally, this occurrence is a signal to trust one's intuition and be on the lookout for deception or changing circumstances.
The owl is regarded as a symbol of wisdom, insight and ability to detect truth, so its presence is both a fortuitous sign and a potential warning. To those who follow a spiritual path, the owl has a special place as a totem animal. Seeing this bird provides a cautionary signal while offering the comfort of having guidance by a wise totem animal.
