Magpie Symbolism & Meaning

Magpie Symbolism . . .

Magpie takes you on a journey into the open arid lands of the old west, riding the dusty trails with the adventurous spirit of the cowboys. 

In the badlands of the old west the Magpie earned the reputation of a swift and expedient daredevil. 

Reported by members of the Lewis & Clark expedition team, this little daredevil winged pirate loved to enter the tents of the explorers and make a quick snatch of food and escape just as quickly, and have therefore been aptly nic-named the "Bad-boy's of the West!

Magpie Spiritual Meaning

Magpie can be called upon as trusted guide, for the Magpie knows the lay of the land, in unfamiliar, uncharted and unknown territory. 

The Magpie knows every trail and every forgotten lost trail as well as the secrets of the deep mysterious river canyons, springs and precious resources these lands hold.

Magpie has an affinity for treasure, and in this way, the Magpie knows the places of silver and gold, waiting in the rivers and streams, in the mountains and open fields.

Magpie, the winged dancer of the skies, has beautiful bold markings of jet black and pure white, just like the Japanese symbol of yin-yang. 

On a spiritual path of discovery one comes to understand the need to balance the deep unknown mystery of the Universe with the illustrious glow of Divine Light that emanates from all things. 

The darkness represents the unknown, and the light represents the truth that all things that can be imagined are possible. 

We can find great serenity in embracing the beautiful expanse of the unknown, and know that truths will be revealed to us in a time and a way that we can understand. 

Magpie is a beautiful symbolic representation of this ideal of balance.
