Goose Magic

Posted on May 31, 2015 at 6:05 PM

Goose/-- The symbol of the sacred circle and its migration announces the passage of the Great Circle of the Year. Sacred bird in the temples of the Roman Goddess Juno,,and it is the totem of the Winter Solstice for the Native Americans. The goose reminds us of the stories we are drawn to that often reflect our life mission. The goose is a call to the vision quest, travel and new adventure and the celebration of victory with dance. The goose never leaves one of its own kind behind. Geese annually migrate to warmer climates during the winter.

Should a goose become injured during this trek, another goose will leave the migrating flock to stay with its fallen comrade. An individual whose outer personality is one of determination and resourcefulness, goose souls may become so single-minded in their drive to provide a safe nest for their mate and offspring that they may ultimately attain their beautiful and sturdy nest, only to turn around when it has been achieved to find there is no mate with whom to share it. Native American Totem Animal for "Capricorn"

 The Cormorant is good at catching fish; hence fishermen choose them as their emblem. The cormorants are excellent swimmers and divers. They are commonly found all over the world especially near the coastal areas, rivers, lakes.... In some places cormorant is called as the great cormorant. They are most well-known as fisher birds for fisherman in China and Japan.



 The cormorant dives to go deep under water. In order to stay under water they have to make themselves heavy by swallowing pebbles. They have to go underwater to catch fish for their food. Once they catch the fish, it is stuck in their craw. Fisherman can extract the fish from the bird’s craw or it can be left alone to swallow its meal.

This behaviour is not common for birds and as a symbol as an animal spirit this indicates a positive inclination for working together.

When you see the cormorant in a vision or a dream, take it as a sign that you should be more open to working with other people.

Consider others that have asked you for help but you have not complied. If you are able to help them, then this bird is a symbol that you should.

Possibly, by helping others in need at this time, you will be rewarded at a later time.



The fishing technique of cormorant is excellent. They are skilled at maneuvering through murky waters and finding fish even at great depths. Not only that, they can literally swim under water. Often, they will swim alongside small boats and help fisherman at their task. They will swim under water and then pop back up when they have a fish in their mouth.

The nature of the bird is considered to be very giving. They can signify prosperous times ahead. They can also indicate that a negative period in your life is going to be overcome.



When the cormorant comes to you as a guide, it is there to it give encouragement. It says that you need to engage in a new opportunity which you may think that you are unable to do

. Because this bird is quite intelligent it is a representation that you need to use your own wit and skill to reach a goal or achieve a task. While this bird can be a spirit that comes to you, sometimes in times of need you may wish to call on the cormorant when you are feeling lost or out of touch with your own goals.

The cormorant can teach you how to be more self-reliant and to use your own wisdom to attain your goals.

You need a helping hand.

You are needing to be a part of work or home life you're feeling left out.

You need encouragement to reach your accomplishments.
