Swans by Lough Meelagh.

What a nice image. I believe swans are on my family crest.

What birds are on your crest, or part of your soul, your dreams?

If you’d like a Tarot and/or tea leaf reading, I can gladly help you out starting at just $20 for an email reading …

Thanks for the read.

What is it about Swans that we find so appealing? Their noble air and graceful movement enchant us.

To the Druids the Swan was said to represent the soul. It is said that they performed their rituals standing under an Oak tree clothed in a pure white cloak…the cloak being made from the skin and feathers of Swans. Their whiteness symbolising purity and perfection.

Swans are said to mate for life and there is an old superstition that if you sow a Swan’s feather into your husband’s pillow it will ensure fidelity.

“It does’nt matter if you’re born in a duck yard, so long as you are hatched from a Swan’s egg.”   Hans Christian Anderson.
