 Wren

Page of Stones 

The colours of the goldcrest – red, white, green and black – were once held to be sacred and the common wren was considered a guardian of the winter mysteries. 

Druids kept wrens as totem animals of augury and prophesy and ritually sacrificed them on St Stephen’s Day (26 December). 

Someone who speaks with a quiet but persistent voice of secrets and mysteries that elude others, who may be shy, and underestimated; but should not be overlooked.

Someone who loves nature, and is gently aware of its subtleties, and has ‘their ear close to the ground’.
