In Mexico and Texas tales are told of a ghost known as La Lechuza,“owl” in Spanish. Also known as the “Witch Bird.” Folkore says that she was once a curandera (woman who practices folk medicine to cure physical or spiritual illnesses) that was exposed as a witch and killed by the townspeople, but returned to seek revenge in the form of a human-sized bird with a woman’s face. Sometimes, she is the ghost of a woman who was widowed by a man who remarried, or was the wife of an unfaithful husband.

A skin walker is a human who is able to shape-shift into various animal forms through witchcraft. Skin-walkers are generally considered frightening, evil, dangerous, and difficult to kill.
Arianrhod is the Celtic Goddess of Fertility, Rebirth, Weaving and Fate. Her name has been translated as silver-wheel, a symbol that represents the ever-turning wheel of the year. The Goddess can shape-shift into an owl, her symbol, which enables Her to see into the dark depths of the human soul.
