Kestrels gifts include accuracy of movement, speed and grace, mental concentration, acting at the correct moment, patience, precise action.
Kestrel are the smallest member of the falcon family, and like all birds of prey they are strongly connected to the accuracy of movement. Their most prominent feature are speed and grace in hunting. They perch high above their prey and when the time is right they swoop down, hover in the air and attack. Amongst most birds, hovering is uncommon – this represents the natural skill to use flight to the maximum advantage. In kestrel people this advantage shows through the strengthening of ones intuitive agility. Kestrel people frequently have the urge to sit or be placed in a position with expansive views. They have a strong desire to spend time alone, and need to feel a sense of independency to keep a relationship healthy. Suited well to any kind of work that entails planning, they also make great diplomats and strategists.
Kestrel shows how to discover ones personal rhythm and act accordingly. As ones personal energy field is increased and broader vision is developed, one learns when to act and when not to.
The power of the kestrel is patience, concentration and precise action. Opportunities are recognised and acted upon at exactly the correct moment, we can learn from this. If kestrel flies into your life, it may be asking you to stimulate your mental powers and move speedily and smoothly into the future that you desire. Go with the flow, paying attention to the movement of every situation and be responsible for your actions.
