If Hawk were to magically cry, it was a sign to beware or be aware. This could mark the coming of a warring tribe, the birth of a child, or the celebration of counting coup. Hawk’s cry signalled the need for the beholder to heighten awareness and receive a message. Hawk medicine is a totem that is filled with responsibility, because Hawk people see the overall view.
Hawk is not like Mouse, who sees everything through a magnifying glass. Hawk medicine people are aware of omens, messages from the spirit, and the color of the calling card you gave them three months ago. No detail slips by them unnoticed.
If Hawk has circled and landed in your card spread, you are to be aware of signals in your life – so notice and receive them. Hawk may be teaching you to grab an opportunity which is coming your way.
On the other hand, Hawk may be bringing you the message that you should circle over your life, and examine if from a higher perspective. From this vantage point you may be able to discern the hazards which bar you from freedom of flight.
Remember: Hawk has a keen eye and a bold heart, for Hawk flies close to the light of Father Sun. Sams & Carson
