No matter how difficult things are at the moment, positive news and change are imminent.

If Vulture has flown across your path;

You are being asked to be patient with yourself and think things through. Take your time before making decisions and choose paths that support your higher consciousness and your heart. Use all of your resources combined with your past experience to approach the problem from a different angle. Know that you are always free to choose your own path but be flexible while moving forward. Allow yourself to use all of your senses to navigate through this situation for your highest benefit. Call on all your resources to get the job done. Alternatively Vulture recognizes that you are fiercely protective of those you feel responsible for but you are reminded that knowing when to allow others to sink or swim is important too. Recognize the need for higher awareness in all those around you.

If Vulture is your Animal Totem;

You know how to use your own energy powerfully and efficiently. You have the ability to see auras and colors around people with your higher vision and you know how to use patience a s a means to an end. You easily go with the flow of those around you yet are fiercely protective of those you feel responsible for. You have keen insight into most situations.

If Vulture has come into your Dream;

To see a vulture in your dream symbolizes purification and insight. It suggests that your past experiences will provide you with invaluable insight into a current situation or problem. Learn from your past. Alternatively, a vulture indicates that you or someone is being opportunistic. Someone is watching you and is waiting for you to take a misstep. You feel that someone is taking advantage of you or is using you. Consider the metaphor of someone who is a “vulture”. Sometimes a vulture is also a symbol of death, doom or rebirth.

    hero, my second name means rebirth, my last name means prophet (obviously) but You can not email me, cuz you just can’t, so please respond.

So please! I have plenty more to say, and really need help. I can put up a pretty good conversation too.

  • :mrgreen: :roll: ❓ πŸ˜› Hi I was wondering, I’ve been seeing these same 27 vultures flying over my house.
    It all started out when I asked someone a question (can’t name who) and I said to give me a sign of 27 vultures in my back yard the next morning if the answer was yes.
    Well, the next morning, when I went into the kitchen to eat breakfast, I heard squawking. I saw a huge vulture fly across the yard. I ran outside and saw three vultures entering my back yard. Six vultures on the roof peak sitting in a line looking at me.Then I ran into the back yard and saw vultures flying around me, sitting on the roof, on the ground, in the trees, and on the garden fence post. We have a six acre yard and live in the forest, so they were everywhere. My bedroom window faces toward the back yard. So I can see everything. There is a big open space then our whole back yard is surrounded by tons of trees. The vultures squawked loudly, and flew around me. They flew around and into a tall dead, leafless tree. I asked for some of them to follow me around the block. Three of them did, flying over me as I rode my bike. I was scared and amazed. Now I feel like I can sense death and I can predict where a vulture will be. I went around the block another time, and saw a huge animal spine all twisted up. Maybe a deer, horse, cow, or donkey, at least a cattle animal. But recently, I asked another question, and I went outside and saw 27 vultures, flying and diving in a huge flock over the road. I ran to them, and followed them. Is this a coincidence? Now in the car, whenever we are still in the country, A vulture will fly around, and will fly until our car is close, then will pass right over us. This happens so often. I can even call a vulture doing a certain hand sign. Vultures are always near me, and are my symbol of peace. There is a tree, a dead one that whenever we pass it, I check to see if a vulture is in it.
    If so, then I will have a happy day. There is so much more to say, but first I need a response. I also have certain deals with a big white canine animal, A raven missing a feather on it’s right wing that I can call, and these two hawks that follow me, and sit on a telephone pole for months and look at me whenever I look at them. They even fly over my house, and dive, and do acrobatics. Please help. 😯

  • In a dream, I was seeing three vultures, roughly about the size of a pterodactyl, flying / swooping from right to left. I saw them through a hole / opening. I’m not sure where I was. I was fascinated by them, and was wanting to take a picture of them. I don’t know where they were going.

  • Does anyone know of species-specific vulture spirit messages? Can anyone tell me what messages Griffon Vulture conveys?

    • Many of the traits of the Griffon Vulture are the same as most other vulture species. Their white heads are significant in that they represent communication with the Creator. They are a go between the spirit and the natural world. Their message also has a lot to do with community and group activities. I would suggest that you pay attention to the message in the quotation box and apply spiritual connections and group activities to it. See how that fits with the answers you are seeking.

      • πŸ˜› :mrgreen: Dear Silken Raven,

        I have recently left an important message for you, and am in desperate need of answers , so please send response as quickly as possible and I will be at rest.
        My questions have intensely bothered my for years 😯 , and you might be my last chance. Do hurry. πŸ˜₯

        • Dear Silken Raven you might wanna check some of the other totem animals too especially the birds . If you could, Please, Please, PLEASE help me figure out my spirit animal.
          here are some suggestions; cat (leopard or jaguar) reptile (lizard or snake) bird ( raven, crow, owl, vulture, hawk.) possibly a wolf.
          Primal astrology says I’m a tarantula, which totally describes me, but recently I found out that over the years, the stars shift, changing me from a Sagittarius to a Scorpio. Ophiuchus is not included though, early astronomers purposely deleted this western sign due to it’s complicated position
          making it hard to divide the sky evenly, and the fact that it was a real person and did not quite make sense on the zodiac. It also describes me well, but like I said before, Primal Astrology does not include Ophiuchus. I am desperate to find out my spirit animal, I thought you could help. Please do not ask for any personal information such as full name, age, ect. I am using a school computer and I could get into trouble. Also my parents would be mad, and I don’t have a very good reputation. Life’s been complicated and I sure could use some help, it would be very encouraging. :mrgreen:

  • My son is 16 years old. For his entire life, vultures have flown over him whenever he is outdoors. He plays baseball and they always are flying overhead even while he’s on the field. There won’t be a single one in sight and as soon as he goes outside to do something, they show up. Sometimes they sit on our barn roof watching for him. This has literally occurred since he was about 2 years old. We’ve always joked with him about it and tell him that his “friends” are here! It’s very strange.

  • I’ve never seen black vultures anywhere except eating roadkill. But this morning four of these large birds landed on my roof. Two stood up there displaying their impressive wingspans, slowly rotating for all to see. That was amazing & beautiful! The other two walked around in the grass, checking out their reflections in glass patio doors. I looked up their symbolism & found this site. I just took a week off from work & am contemplating making major changes. So their symbolism that encourages me to think things through, considering every angle, is spot on!!

  • We were on a mail delivery boat tour cruising around Lake Geneva in Wisconsin. We saw various immaculate lawns, gardens, mansions, and expensive homes from the dock view. One yard had close to 30 birds on the lawn and trees. I have never seen so many turkey vultures in one area. I wonder why they were there, and nowhere else. the yard wasn’t very wide., so why not the neighbors as well? I have never seen more than a few riding the thermals, so it was quite an experience. Strong medicine.

  • I was at college, and a nature center brought over three birds to show the students. A turkey vulture, a hawk, and an owl. The turkey vulture kept looking at me, and then all of a sudden as I was sitting down, I seen it turning its body towards me, opening her wings and lowering her head… All of a sudden she lunged towards my direction..but she had a strap on her ankle so she couldn’t actually go off her post. She got her self together, then stood on the opposite end of the post (even closer to me) opening her wings and standing there on the post. She continued standing their with her wings open. I’m not sure what that all means.

  • I live in a rural area and have rarely seen turkey vultures around our property until this spring. I’ve noticed a family or group of about five or six that seemed to follow me around. I see them when I’m out working in my yard, walking the dog down the road…I see the group following and circling nearly every time I’m outside! I’ve even noticed them many times if I’m indoors looking out a window, there they are just circling! it just so happens that I am expecting my first baby, could they be representing something about my baby or are they trying to tell me something as a first time mother? Thoughts?

  • Today is my 33rd birthday. I woke up this morning and walked into the kitchen of my condo, which is on the 16th floor of a big tower in downtown Toronto. I looked outside onto the balcony and was startled by a massive turkey vulture perched on the ledge. I started looking at it closely and was a bit shocked. As I inched closer I could tell that it was aware I was looking at it. I took some photos and just sat there for about 10 minutes watching the huge bird. I was a bit scared and thrilled at the same time. After a while I had to get ready for my day so I went into the other room. When I returned it was gone. It left some furry scraps from its last meal and some droppings behind. I asked the concierge and some other residents of the building, but no one had ever seen a turkey vulture in the city or area, or up on a skyscraper for that matter. Very inspiring and certainly an omen.

  • I’m starting to see that the vulture is most likely my totem. Not only do I see it in meditation, but I have had a few experiences with them. There was the funny side that I saw to them when three of them attacked my bird kite when I was a kid, but there was a time when I was waiting outside for my parents to come home as I was locked outside. I was reading when a shadow interrupted my reading. I looked up and 10 feet above my head was a turkey vulture. I was afraid so I darted and did a walk-run and it followed me. I did this a few times before I realized it was playing tag with me. I ran around with it constantly 10 feet above my head and when I turned it turned. I put my arms out pretending to fly. After about 15 minutes, the vulture flew away. It is the most magical encounter I have ever had with nature.

  • I live in an area that vultures aren’t built for so vultures dont really come into my life, crows however do… I did some meditation to find my spirit animal and a vulture appeared, I asked him why there are so many crows around so often and he said that he sent the crows to keep watch over me since he couldn’t.

    • That’s beautiful. I currently live in an area where I no longer see my turkey vultures but not far from where I work I always see this same raven staring through the window at me from time to time.

  • I have never really seen turkey vultures before but for the past few years I see them all the time and it seems that they tell me what’s going on with my life at that time. If I see one I have a good day, if I see 2 my days it is a little weird. But if I see five or more someone died. I don’t know how to explain it. But even at my boyfriends grandmothers funeral (i loved that woman) a friend saw a turkey vulture land on the top of the church and watch me walk inside.. I don’t know what this means but that fact that I see them so frequently and they are always right makes me really curious to know. there was even a time where I was talking to someone about how I see turkey vultures. And we looked outside to see one change course turn towards me and fly within 7 feet of the building we were in with its belly to the window. These could all be coincidences is but it has happened way too much for me to believe that coincidence could be the cause.

  • For most of my life, I have rarely seen turkey vultures. Then this past summer, I woke up to find 3 of them in my driveway. There was one that was obviously the dominant one; it was the one doing all of the the eating at first. The others kept a safe lookout and guarded him while he/she ate. Eventually, the three of them spread out, with one on tope of my house and one on each on the neighboring houses. At this point, I was able to go outside and sit on my back patio while the vulture on my roof looked down at me. There was no sense of fear of aggression… it just watched me. There was this sense that it felt in no way threatened by me, knowing it was so much more powerful than me. After a few minutes, it took off.
    Since then, I see vultures very frequently. There is even a huge pack of them that tend to roost in this one tree that I pass on my way home from work. They fly over my car as I pass them.

  • Hi Rick who saw a vulture fly over his truck.

    There could be many meanings to what happened, but you rightly surmised that this is unusual behavior for the bird, and something to be noted. I’m glad you’re looking into it.


  • Today a vulture, like turkey vulture flew up and across the front of my truck. No damage to the truck. not sure what happened to the vulture. No blood or any other parts found anywhere on the truck, i was going 50 miles an hour.

    What does this mean ?
