Air: The Eagle may suggest someone whose head is in the clouds or who is full of hot air. On a spiritual level it represents intuition and may be a sign of developing gifts or abilities.
Clarity: A time when things begin to come clear. Can also mean clairvoyance or spiritual enlightenment. Sometimes it warns to look clearly at a person or situation before making any decisions.
Warning: Sometime The Eagle comes as a warning though rarely as a prediction. It seeks rather to make us look at things we are ignoring or repressing and bring them into the open and deal with them.
Discord: When we see The Eagle we should consider that it may be a warning or refer to an argument. You could be feeling threatened or intimidated – just relax and call on your spirit animal to guide you.
The Eagle can indicate a person where the message just isn’t getting through or a situation that has blown up out of all proportion.
Upright Meanings: self-sabotaging behaviour, lack of communication, deception, abuse, standing up for yourself, self-sacrifice, crime, cowardliness, assault, serious conflict, empty victory, hostility, surrender, murder, violence, walking away, fighting back, victory, intimidation, bullying, rape, change, defeat, aggression, underhanded behaviour, overcoming challenges
The Eagle is not always a good omen as it can represent defeat, change surrender and walking away. It is a minor card of self-sabotaging or underhanded behaviour and deception and lack of communication. It can also represent serious conflict, stress and lack of communication. The Eagle card comes with a warning as it can signify hostility, aggression, intimidation and violence and as such it can represent situations we would hope to never encounter in our lives such as crime, theft, bullying, abuse, assault, rape, murder. On the other hand, it may simply represent the action one must take to overcome being challenged by others such as standing up for oneself and fighting back. As such it can be an indication of victory. If so, the victory it represents will be hard won as you will have quite a battle on your hands.
Reversed Meanings: revenge, communication, regret, shame, loss, ending conflict, compromise, overcoming challenge, escalating violence, defeat, uncovered crime, major sacrifice, unfairness, humiliation, releasing stress, moving on, risk everything, peaceful resolution, relentless, remorse, not heeding warnings, arrest, held accountable
