The Sparrow; A Symbol of Hope and Renewal | world-symbols

Tuesday, January 5, 2016

The Sparrow, returning from it's winter home, is the herald of spring, a symbol of the mother goddess, rebirth, and the Resurrection. It is a symbol of hope, fertility, a renewal of life, and represents the love of God for even the "least" among us.

The Sparrow was an attribute and messenger of Aphrodite. The long battle at Troy was forecast when nine sparrows, representing the nine years of war, were eaten by a snake.

In the art of Feng Shui, Birds in general, bring good luck when placed in the South facing side of your room. However the keeping of caged birds is bad Feng Shui, as this represents confinement and the stunting of growth.
