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’.

Being silent to hear the voice of your inner heart.
