The eagle represents a form of spiritual victory and the ability to be dispassionate. We can take authority for our own lives and have the ability to use our intellect to succeed. Using the image of an eagle as a starting point, we can become objective and take a wider viewpoint than we have done previously. This will help us to release ourselves from old ideas or attitudes. An eagle signifies inspiration and strength. As a bird of prey, the eagle is capable of making use of all the opportunities available to it, the implication being that we can learn to do the same.
