Group Details

The swan was seen as a traditional symbol of beauty and grace in ancient Greece, and was sacred to Aphrodite.  The swan was also sacred to Apollo, the god of music (among other things), in Greek mythology.  At the time, the people believed that the swan sang a sweet and beautiful song when people died.  The swan song was supposed to be the most beautiful song the bird had ever sung, since swans aren’t known for their singing.

The swan is one of the most powerful and ancient totems.  Even the word swan is one of the oldest names in the English language, coming from the Anglo-Saxons.  Most of swan’s associations come from its appearance—it is a graceful, white bird, and the largest of the waterfowl.  But swans are also powerful birds.  From this, they reflect the power and longevity that is possible when we awaken to the power and beauty within ourselves.  Swan is not only a widely known symbol, but also a very personal one to the individual.

Geese and ducks can be included in this group as they are in the same family.
