The martin is the largest of swallows; its purple color symbolizes a connection with the divine. Some have even called it God's "bow and arrow." The bird represents good luck; if it nests near you, consider yourself fortunate.
Martin birdhouses can look like apartment complexes; these birds love community life and are at peace with others.
This totem reminds you to ask yourself: how are you integrating into the community you are in? Are you trying to be too watchful over your community and trying to control situations out of your practical domain of influence?
Remember, you can have your space, do your thing, and let others do theirs, even if it might seem troublesome. Sometimes communities, and group agreements, need to go through difficult times to recognize what is truly valuable.
