In the Getting Started with Lenormand post I provided a list of simple associations which included:
Birds, 7 of Diamonds, Gossip, Chatter, Couples, Sorrow, Unease, Messages (Spirits)
Birds represent spoken communication. In the context of people, it shows us gossip and chatter. Not always in a malicious context, but it is a sign of the rumour-mill turning.
In the manner of Spirits, it shows active communication in both the waking and sleeping state.
It can also be a sign of Couples. Think of the Elderly couple who sit on their porch and discuss the goings-ons of the world.
We can also see the omen of Sorrow. Birds in many traditions are a messenger of the Underworld, bringing to us signs of our Lost ones. Or Even unease if they are too close to us. A Bird fluttering in your face can be unsettling.
As a description of a person, they may have beady eyes and a long beak-like nose.
As always remember that Context is Key, and allow the space to consider what is being expressed broadly as well as narrowly.
Keep an eye out for tomorrows post, Child.
Love and Manyfold Blessings.
