Athena was the Greek goddess that could do it all. Besides being the wisest of the Greek gods, she was also good at war strategy, invented a bunch of things, and was excellent at weaving and pottery. A total overachiever.
Her owl though! Legend has it, Athena had one blind eye. However, her owl had the ability to light up her blind side and reveal unseen truths to her. A bird of mystical wisdom, owls have ancient knowledge of the powers of the moon. Turned on by moonlight, full moon nights make them feel super sexy; they’ve been observed sending out coochie-coo hoots all night long.
