Welcome to ATS.
The Owl represents that a "deception" is afoot! It is interesting that your brother's dream is of a white owl, as I would say this brings with it a
sense of purity and possibly innocence to the situation.
It may mean that there is an "innocent deception" at play around him at this time. If it were multiple owls then it may just be he is being played
"innocently" by the likes of two individuals who take an interest in him. They may be two strangers, or new acquaintances, who only wish to reach out
to your brother but are doing so under a "guise" or a "ruse".
For instance, a Love interest or admirer could inject a bit of "mystery" or even weave a different picture in order to manipulate the situation at
Another case could be friends who care for your brother but are working in their own interest; they could be "innocently" using your brother.
Typically, the Owl has a message of Truth. The Owl, you see, can look beyond the tall grass and see the mouse hidden away; this is the deception, the
grass, and illusion that is used by the mouse as a cover. However, the Owl can see beyond the grass by way of its ears and its other senses, not to
mention its incredible eyesight even in the darkest places. It is a message that is hidden for the moment but will be discovered!
There have been many references to a more sinister nature of the Owl Spirit, but do not be fooled if the Owl itself comes to visit; only when we force
the Owl Energy does it pertain to the Negative, because there are those who see things that are not supposed to be seen.
Under this circumstance, your brother's, I would say that this is a Positive Force, a positive message! It is for the receiver to interpret, they
only need to be told that there is a "deception" afoot and to be aware of that; good or bad! (Remember, Love is not a bad thing, but it can be used
in the wrong way).
Best of Luck! Owls are Worthy signs!
