Messengers, Protectors + Visionaries: The Red Tailed Hawk

An intriguing and mystical bird, The Hawk represents visionary power and guardianship, having a precise cycle of power during the Spring and Fall Equinoxes– as well as during the New Moon. During these times of transition this bird of prey is at it’s finest, while also having a cycle correspondent with the New Moon, a moon that invokes embracing the beginning of something new.

Hawks are a varied species existing in marsh, forest, sea and prairie. Since Red-Tailed Hawks are prevalent in the Bay Area, I will discuss their symbology which is significant and dynamic. Known to have direct ties with what the Yogic/Ayurvedic studies refer to as the kundalini, or life force, the Red-Tailed Hawk is a harness for this energy as you begin to propel forward toward your soul’s purpose, your visions and dreams. It is not uncommon for innovative thinkers to come across obstacles or people who do not understand their diverse creativity (can I say StonerChic!) … Likewise, the Red-Tailed Hawk is attacked by small birds, especially crows, thus facing adversity frequently, but using it as a tool to create tolerance. In addition, the Red-Tailed Hawk has the visionary influence to leave impressions and stir the imagination, making you open to receive the new while stimulating and generating hope and bright, fresh ideas. In fact, the red of the Red-Tailed Hawk reflects the fervor of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual forces, all which are at play. This build up of energy can lead to the development of astral projections, teaching a higher expression of psychism and vision associated with the 14th tarot card, Temperance. This teaching is of beauty and harmony in moderation. The number 14 comes up again specifically with regards to the life span of the Red-Tailed Hawk, who mates with a sole partner for that duration in its entirety. The Ojibwa saw the Red-Tailed Hawk as a figure of leadership, deliberation and foresight, thus having a strong energy and an innovative approach.

Here are some images of the mystical being in his own way…xx
