Blackbirds are a symbol of enchantment, the gateway, the inner call, understanding of the energies of Mother Nature. However, blackbird do not give their messages easily. They like to watch and observe us. They demand our loyalty and will only reveal their messages when they think that we are committed to the truth, both the good (light) and bad (dark) parts of the truth. This has links with lunar traditions. Blackbirds symbolises the eternal struggle of light vs dark part of lunar cycles. This is about being aware of the night. To achieve this you have to change the way you use your senses. You need to have a commitment to higher knowledge and an acceptance of the void. This has links with alchemy, transformation and transition. The bird is a symbol of the heavens and blackness is a symbol of pure potential.
