Falcon Symbolism

The Falcon is a solar emblem for success, victory and rising above a situation.

The Falcon animal totem comes to us when we require higher vision, or when we need higher knowledge in solving current dilemmas in our lives.

The Falcon symbolized the rising sun in Egypt. It was the king of all birds, and gods such as Ra were depicted with the head or body of the Falcon.

In European tradition, the Falcon represents the huntsman and considered a war-like symbol. It is associated with the Wodan, Frigg and Loki.

At its core, this powerful animal totem represents visionary power, wisdom and guardianship. The Falcon awakens visionary power, and leads us to our life purpose. The Falcon carries with it a message of transition and change, so look for change in your work or career.
