A sign interpreted as an indication of some future event. Omens are an integral part of the practice of divination in which an individual will attempt to gain knowledge of the future through various practices.
Many cultures believe that signs of nature are also omens such as an omen for the coming for a great storm or a bad winter. The sighting of a specific animal at a certain location or at a specific time of the year can also be seen as a good or bad omen depending on the circumstances.
