An omen (also called portent or presage) is a phenomenon that is believed to foretell the future, often signifying the advent of change.

Interpretation of omens and prophetic signs is a form of divination.

Omens may be considered "good" or "bad", but the term is more often used in a foreboding sense, as with the word "ominous".
