Owls have frequently been considered creatures of the night that can be associated with witchcraft and familiars, but they have also become a cultural symbol of wisdom (as in the "wise old owl"). The ancient Greeks associated them with scholarship. Owls have excellent night vision as evidenced by their large eyes, making them a symbol of spiritual insight in dark places. They commonly hunt and eat small animals often considered pests (such as mice and rats), thus an owl could also represent something that is removing unwanted influences from a dreamer's life.
