The eagle is the king of birds; it symbolizes the domination, masculinity, power and freedom. Native Americans saw this in the volatile, divine incarnation, lightning generated from his eyes and with the beat of the wings the rain from the sky started to fall from the sky. The eagle feathers were used in ancient rituals of healing and purification and enthroned on the top of a totem.

Consider some meanings in different cultural traditions: Alchemical meaning: Is a representation of the raw material, the beginning of an alchemical operation, the eagle opens its wings during the processes of creation, fostering the growth of new matter. Mayas and Aztecs: The eagle is attached to the rising sun and has the power to shine light in our world. Celts: Is depicted with lightning instead of claws, a symbol of authority, domination and virility.
