Eagles are known for spirit, courage, shapeshifting, and freedom. They represent knowledge from above, a messenger carrying our prayers and gifts to the Creator.
In ancient Greece, Zeus was identified with the eagle. In Gaelic lore, the eagle is associated with the sun.
America adopted the bald eagle on their great seal. The eagle is carrying an olive branch representing peace, as well as 13 arrows to represent “prepared in war or peace”.
