Unicorns are a symbol of the spirit of purity, innocence, childhood, magick, miracles, enchantment. It is believed that the unicorn will only bestow magick and miracles for those that are pure of heart. A soft tinkling of bells often precedes the vision of a unicorn, and as bells are the sound of the divine it reminds us that we are in the presence of something “other”. To kill a unicorn would be seen as the destruction of purity, perfection and wonder itself.
