Animal Omens

If you hear an owl hooting in the forest before midnight,
It warns you of trouble to come.
If you hear it after midnight,
It is a sign that death is near.

Upon seeing crows, remember:
One for sorrow,
Two for mirth,
Three for a wedding,
Four for a birth.

Bad tidings in one quarter; an omen of disaster in another yet all Witches know:
Black cat arrives
Good fortune thrives.

A visit from a tricolored cat will bring good luck.
If you entreat it to stay, magic paths will open before you.

Should a black dog come to you home unbidden and take up residence with you-
welcome the beast, for you can be sure good fortune will follow.

When you see a frog in early spring, creep up behind it and gently stroke
its back with your finger. You will know true love before the snow flies.

If you see a spider:
in the morning - you'll know shame
at midday- pleasure and profit
in the afternoon- a gift it brings
in the evening- joy and mirth.

It is a bad omen to meet or follow a flock of sheep.
