The Crow Spirit Animal

Crow Dream Meaning

crow spiritual meaning

Flight: Any animal with wings can suggest flight. This can be a need to run from (or panic about) a situation (or person) but, somewhat differently, a chance to run TO something rather than away.

Darkness: The Crow can represent depression or worry and often relates to a person close to us. Sometimes it can suggest dark thoughts such as jealousy or revenge. The card can be a sign of worrying unnecessarily.

Journey: The Crow can represent literal travel but more often a life path journey. This can be any major life change for the better – better career prospects, a relationship commitment, buying a house, finding your spiritual path, improving your diet.

Often called the karma card, The Crow can signify a new person in your life or a major change in work or money matters. It can also suggest a decision made to move on and sometimes major life changes on the home front.
