I got an email from a reader who sighted about 200 red robins at her home on March 8th. She was curious to know the symbolic meaning of robins – and what kind of portent this experience held. I responded thusly:
Dear Rockin’ Robin:
Wow, that’s a lot of robins!
Ultimately only you can determine the meaning of this event and how it applies to your life.
However, intuitively I would take this as:
new beginnings, a fresh new start
a sign of inspiration
an encouragement for creativity
a reminder that you have infinite resources at hand when working with matters of renewal, joy, and spiritual growth
I come to this conclusion because the robins are about happiness, satisfaction and new beginnings – I’ve written an entire page on the symbolic meaning of robins here:
The robins came to you in March – the third month of the year. The number three deals with creativity, inspiration and spirituality. I’ve written more on the three here:
Lastly, you experienced these robins on the eighth day of the month. Eight deals with infinity, cycles, and opportunity. Again, I’ve written about the eight here:
If you factor in all of these symbolic meanings you come out with an incredibly auspicious portent – a sign of promise and renewal. Congratulations and ride the wave!
I trust this information helps you on your path.
