The raven symbolizes healing powers, the ability to draw secrets from the Shadows. The raven symbolizes gratitude and affection, wisdom, hope, longevity, death, and fertility. The song of the Raven is said to be a symbol of temptations.
The raven is at once a symbol of mystery, memory and thought; and the master trickster. In alchemy, Raven represents change and the advanced soul.
My need for the healing powers of Raven is strong. May they bring the spirits of the departed to me to embrace lovingly, with no regret. May they help me hold the love of those close to my heart.
