In spite of its midnight-colored feathers, the raven was a solar animal in some cultures, and was associated with both Athena and Apollo, both deities closely affiliated with the Sun, and the light of wisdom. Apollo was also a major oracular god, which makes its connection with the chatty and (and alarmingly human-like) conversational raven a smart match. Ravens are humanitarians in Native American symbolic legends too. In fact, the raven was a hero to many tribes. The Inuit for example believed the raven tricked a giant sea monster into submission, and to this day its body serves as the Alaskan mainland. Other Native North American tribes saw the raven as the bringer of light. In fact, southwestern tribes (Hopi, Navajo, Zuni) felt the raven was flew out from the dark womb of the cosmos, and with it brought the light of the Sun (dawning of understanding). Consequently, the raven is considered a venerated bird of creation, for without the raven, humans would forever live in darkness. The Raven is telling you, it is time for you to follow your intuition and inner guidance. It will not steer you wrong with this current issue at hand. Listen to your gut! Follow the signs! The Raven is assisting you in obtaining higher knowledge and enlightenment, The Light is the Truth. Seek it and it will set you free.
