The ear is associated with the spiral,
the whorled shell and the SUN, and the shell, in turn,
is a symbol of the vulva. Thus, there is a close connection between the ear and
birth itself. It has long been considered the seat of memory, receptivity, inquisitiveness
and awakening. Small ears represent shyness and low self-esteem, while large ears
reflect an extroverted personality and adaptive ease. Seen as the portal for temptation
or flattery (EVE).
The phrase 'ear burns' comes to mean that someone is talking about you.
