The Magpie is the source of much myth and legend, but I have focused just on a couple of aspects, which are responding to my vision of this bird most.
They are sociable birds and are often seen 'chattering' noisily in small groups. In Slavonic countries the magpie symbolises a chatterbox and is associated with rumours.
The "Breakthrough" symbolises getting out of the circle of rumours and gossips, out of "vanity fair" with its doubtful shining glamour, to live life according to your own real values, no-matter-what-they-say; its an allegory of dignity, standing up for yourself, freedom and self-respect.
And there is a hidden symbol in this picture: another meaning of English "a magpie" is "the second target ring with circles". Break through it, break out of it not to remain being a target!
