Birds

Crow

Do not be afraid to use your voice powerfully to speak out with integrity. Know that you will need to address these issues in order to restore harmony.
-Crow

Meaning and Messages

In this case, Crow symbolism is a sign of change. Like the Tarantula, everything that you have been working toward is now coming to fruition. Alternatively, your Crow meaning is a clear message as to what your next steps are. Furthermore, you must pay attention to your thoughts, as well as the omens around you. With this spirit animals’ appearance, the signs are more precise now than they have ever been.

Conversely, similar to the Cheetah, the Crow symbolism could also be letting you know that you are spreading yourself a little bit too thin. Thus, the Crow meaning insists it’s time to step back and reassess where you. You can do this by taking stock of your dreams and aspirations. Moreover, being clear about your desires is the key to manifesting your intentions.

Totem, Spirit Animal

Like the Scarab Beetle, people with Crow totem have a great deal of personal integrity. They work hard at being mindful of their opinions and actions. As a result, they are willing to walk their talk, speak their truth, and embrace their life’s mission. Folks with this spirit animal shift through changes and phases of their lives with effortless ease. Crow totem people are also willing to swoop in on opportunities at a moment’s notice. Similar to the Raven, these people have no concept of time as a linear entity. They are aware that time is the existence of the past, present, and future all in a single moment. They live for now.

Crow Dream Interpretation

Dreaming of this bird is usually a message from your sub-conscience. If the Crow is flying, it means that you need to bring the hidden issues in your sub-conscience mind to the surface. Only then can you move forward in your life. Moreover, if the bird is feasting, your sub-conscience is telling you that your current course of action will bring forth affluence.  However, make sure that what you are manifesting is what you want in your life. As the Polar Bear, one of these corvids watching you or following you in your dream is a good omen of positive changes coming up in your life.

Similar to the Owl, a Crow dream could also be warning you that if you continue on your present course of action, you may be in for a great deal of disappointment.

  • I am a massage therapist and I was working and I heard a pecking or tapping and it was a crow pecking on my glass door. He pecked about 3 or 4 times and I looked to see who it was and it was a crow. I guess he saw me and he flew off is this an Omen?

  • So my best friends brother died, it really hurt her but he died in a mental hospital getting help. Not to mention the staff in there were beating and abusing the people in there, they eventually got shut down. Anyway she saw a flock of 100 or several hundred outside her window on her brothers birthday and felt it meant something she was sure of it and this might sound a little wild but she told me there was one she saw looking strait at her and she felt like it was her brother visiting her. What's yalls opinion or meaning of this.

  • Hi, last week I was sitting in my living room watching tv, out of the corner of my eye, I can see a blackbird flapping, I turned to look and nothing was there. It didn't scare me though, I just wondered what it meant?

  • I have seen a crow fly by while inside. I was at work but I saw it inside flying by a window. There is nothing in that room and I know I saw it. I must have daydreamed or something but I know when I saw it I felt dread. I have read all of these posts and they all mention people actually dreaming. Why am I seeing crows that are not real while I am awake? I get that people see them in their dreams or actually outside which I don't find abnormal. Any insight in this would be greatly appreciated.

    • If you look at the blog Intuitive Souls on beginner articles for psychics, seeing shadows in the periphery of your vision, often means an awakening of psychic ability. Usually when the spirit is black alone as a shadow, it means it's a guide, even if being colored black is scary. Unless things are randomly moving mysteriously in your house, something is floating, mysterious noises pop up and other obvious signs of something dangerous, I doubt anything over the top bad is happening. You're free to look up the term "psychic self defense," or "psychic protection," on articles, videos and books online if you want to make sure though. Note that dead dark colored spirits aren't automatically dangerous as living black people. So likely this bird is likely your guide as some kind of totem animal of some kind, and even if you lack its strengths, you have the potential to develop it. Try to look up "signs of clairvoyance," or "signs of clairaudience," online for some info. Psychic awakenings can happen very randomly sometimes. It does not necessarily have to be present at the time of birth or childhood for someone to be a psychic, and progress in spiritual growth or maturity can make one be gifted by God, I suppose, with these abilities spontaneously.

  • I dreamt of a few hundred crows flying above my house by the front door. But also 3/4 swans where one of them tried flying directly into my house. I cant grasp what this could mean as the meanings oflthe two symbols are quite opposite from each other.

    • These two are not opposites just because one is black and scary and the other one is usually white and not so scary. You cannot judge animals by appearance the same way you should not judge people by their appearance, such as with their skin color, height, width or other defining features. Like human beings, an animal is not "evil" because it's black and "good" because it's white.

      Crows represent change and swans represent foresight into the future. Perhaps the coming changes of this world for the better are inviting you to prepare for any additional events that might come your way with various plans. Not that change means something is automatically bad. People are just afraid of the unfamiliar and see change as the same word as "bad", but the unfamiliar can be much better than your situation, actually. It is just that you fear the unknown more than your current horrible situation, that is bad by certainty, rather than the uncertain that has some chance in being good.

  • I had a very odd experience the other day... I went into subway and came out with a sub and soda, my hands were full so I had to put them on the roof of my car so I could grab my car keys.
    All of the sudden from directly behind me - this crow (who apparently was perched on the car next to mine) let out this incredibly loud "CAW". For some reason, I heard myself say "don't turn around", so I didn't... I grabbed my soda and sub and hopped into my car.
    I then saw there were actually like 30 crows flying all around my car. I don't know why, but I wasn't scared at all... Instead I found a small bag of snacks that I opened and poured out my window for them.
    The badgering crow (aka mastermind behind this foiled mugging) flew on to my rear view mirror and just stared at me! He looked incredulous. So I then open my window and shared a bit on my sandwich with them. I could tell the crow was very curious with me as he didn't understand why he still got a treat even though his plan went awry.
    The weirdest part of it all though, was after I drove away I started hearing distinct tapping sounds. I was on the phone with a friend and he heard it too... There was nothing in the car that would make that noise.
    I just wonder if it was that I looked like an easy victim, or if there was something more going on with that whole situation? Has anyone else experienced anything like that?

      • To Tabatha, Jax, Lance, Mary G. et al,
        As a DreamWorker, I encounter these types of dream, symbolism and Waking Dream questions regularly. The greatest good you can do is trust your own intuitive interpretation. Be very wary of book, (read: dream dictionary) or amy interpretations that belong to others. They didn't have the dream, or energy of the dream, therefore their input is suspect.
        One direct way to get the real dream content meaning is to use the following dream discovery technique:
        1) While going to sleep, play the dream back without comment...but with a feeling of child-like questioning curiosity.
        2) As you doze off, ask your Inner Self, "What does this dream mean?"
        3) Then look for the answer in the dream-state, or in your daydreaming, or waking dreams. Waking Dreams can appear as an inner or outer symbol, event, or outer experience. A Waking Dream sensibility is: "This is just for me!" or, "This is my answer." Then, rather than question it - apply it to your life, and see what happens !

    • "In a spiritual sense a window is a symbol of possibilities, understanding, and hope. If you see large glass windows in your dream, it indicates your openness to new possibilities" - Auntyflo (dream dictionary)
      Just searched this up because people who ask about dream interpretations with animals don't often search the meanings of other non-animal symbols in their dreams. If you don't think there is one, just assume there is and google it. You will be surprised how many ancient to modern items are being written on in dreams, though people often believe there is nothing written about modern items in dreams at all, actually, but there is a lot.

      Seeing that the crow represents change, and the window represents opportunities, it might mean that if you make best use of what you've been given now and take the leap of faith into trying something different, you will find what you desire.

  • My wife went to my fathers grave and asked him if she should stay with me and work on our relationship, and asked for a sign. A crow landed on his grave in front of her.she took this as a no because it wasn't a dove(which we don't have in this part of the country). Isn't that the sign she was looking for? And was just misinterpreted? Please let me know so i can send this to her

    • There are many good signs with different animals, and a dove isn't the only possible sign meaning yes. The thing is, this mentions change, but no specifics on how the change will be done. Spirit guides, including spirit animals, do not make major decisions for you like this and tell you what to do. They are spirit "guides" and not commanders or strict rule setters. You have your own free will after all. If everything was given to you easily on what is "good" and "bad", then you will never develop enough spiritual character to think for yourself to develop character, which is the opposite of what the divine wants. The aim is that you can figure this out independently so you can be good out of true intentions, and not just because you want to be rewarded or punished by following the rules of the divine.

      Though whatever it is, with the crow indicating change, it is definitely something different to your current situation. Perhaps that change is for you and your wife to think for yourselves for once rather than asking other people's advice on your relationships. You are the ones in the relationship, not other people. If anything, crows are symbolic of independent thinking, of which you seem to lack.

  • Hi Everyone!
    Today I found an injured baby crow outside of my front door. My boyfriend was walking up and heard the parent in distress and found the injured crow by my front door. We called wildlife rescue and they told us to keep it in a box overnight until we can drop it off tomorrow morning.

    The weird thing is I actually looked up the meaning of crows a couple days ago cause they had a nest on a tree next to my house and I noticed they were making a lot of noise and I wanted to know the symbolism behind it.

    I know of the bad omens associated with crows but honestly I don’t feel anything bad intuitively.

    Can someone help me explore some possible interpretations to this ‘coincidence’ / event?

    Also, the parent has been circling around my house and making lots of noise.

    What could this mean?

    • Trust your intuition if you think the positive interpretation of the crow is more represented here, as this article suggests. Can people stop thinking certain animals are "good" and some are "bad"? Animals are complicated, and there are both positive and negative interpretations of things. The more oversimplified and lacking of nuance an interpretation of symbolism is, the less accurate it tends to be. Nothing surprising that longer articles seem to be more accurate than shorter ones, or entire books of spirit animals rather than a shorter 10 minute video on the spirit animal. Basically, the longer and more complicated, the more accurate something is, even if that is not the lazy option people are more comfortable with.

  • In the last couple of nights I've had two crow dreams. In the first I was in my mother's (my childhood) backyard where I saw a bunch of dead birds. Many were crows. I saw that one was actually a white baby crow with pin feathers and was alive. I picked it up and held it my chest, telling it "it's ok" while carrying it into the house. In my dream last night there was a black crow outside. I ran inside to get some corn puffs and started to hand feed it. As I fed it I worked towards petting it and eventually got to the point where I could hold it and it would look up at me with it's black shiny eyes. Like the white crow, I was holding this one to my chest and petting it. This dream also had a Blue Jay in it, but I don't remember much about what the Blue Jay was doing. In the last 2 months my soul-mate dog died at age 9. His 10th birthday would have been April 14, around the time the crow dreams started. I also came down with the Coronavirus about a week after he died and was very sick for about 3 weeks. Does anyone have any thoughts on these dreams? Thank you.

  • This morning i dreamt that a baby crow was in my room who may have been my pet (though i've never had a pet crow but in my dream the way i treated him it seemed as though he was my pet). He was standing in a corner of my room, when I also noticed that he was sick, & had tears in his eyes. So when i took him in my hands, I saw that an army of ants were trying to feast on him. So I immediately tried to get rid of the ants, but the more i tried that more ants were coming out from underneath his wings. The crow then flew & sat on a plant in my balcony, but I noticed that there were more ants & he was still scared. I grabbed him again & tried to get rid of the ants, but there were like thousands & thousands of ants still coming out. While trying to save the crow, I may have put him on the ground a little too hard for which he may have gotten hurt (i'm not sure), so he flew again in the same corner of the room where i saw him at first. He didn't die, but I saw pain in his eyes. That's where the dream ended but I think he was still surrounded by ants & almost dying. --- What does this mean? Thank in advance 🙏🏾

    • Hello Sandi:
      The number 13 signifies powerful feminine energy. The crows are letting you know that you have to connect with your feminine energy so that you can attract what you desire. Forcing the issue will not help.

  • I just typed this in my notes on my phone, happen about 20 minutes ago and I immediately felt it as an omen:

    546 to 5:47 AM I’m outside on my porch smoking a cigarette. there’s a crow on the powerline across for me crow very loudly in succession , over a bird cooing in the distance. I can’t help but gaze in awe, the image is so beautiful and I feel like this is a surreal moment; I want to sketch what I see when I go back inside. I go and pull out my camera, not trusting my memory. I turn my flash off. I go to take the picture in portrait mode. it doesn’t look right. Turning to landscape, going to press the button...the crow flies away. he’s gone and I hear him laugh down the street one time and no more as I write this.

    • I get the sense this means that if you try to prepare for the future too much by trying to capture it into a moment to remember later on, you will not be able to enjoy the present. So enjoy the changes associated with the crow, and pretend for even just a short moment that the future or past doesn't exist. All there is, is now.

  • Good Morning,
    So I work at a nursery and I was charging a customer when I heard a flock of crows flying on top didn't think much of it. Until my coworker comes in and said " A crow just fell," and it almost hit me.
    They grabbed a broom to see if it was still alive and it was. It turned around and flew away.

    Wondering what does this mean..???

    • It sounds like that for a moment that change, which the crow represents, will slow down and seem to be completely hopeless for some time. Though one day, you will find that change is possible. The dawn goes brightest after the darkest dusk, as they say. A storm will happen in your life, but someday, you can take flight into freedom again. Perhaps sooner than you think. Bad times don't always have to last.
