What is the symbolism of the peacock feather?

The peacock's plumage seems to represent hundreds of eyes. In Ancient Greece, it is said that it was the goddess Hera who gave the peacock the eyes that once belonged to Argus, so that the bird could protect it by seeing the past, present and future. For Christians, these eyes represent God, who sees all the actions performed by humanity.

Peacock feathers have been used for healing for tens of thousands of years in all cultures throughout time. They are said to carry spiritual healing energy that can be used to help people seek balance and harmony in their lives. With the proper usage guidelines, they allow the individual to connect to the universal healing energy and use this energy to heal people of all their complaints, imbalances, and illnesses.

It's known as a symbol of renewal

In summer, the peacock loses its feathers, and yet they grow back, even more beautifully the following spring. It was enough for many religions to see these particular feathers as a sign of resurrection or spiritual renewal. Carrying one on one's person helps to put negativity aside and focus on the positive. Indeed, it’s an essential step in moving forward and following a path that is perhaps more spiritual.

It’s also a good luck charm

Finding a peacock feather is often a sign that luck is about to shine down on you. Success will soon be on the horizon in every realm of your life. It also has protective powers that help chase away evil spirits.

Can a peacock feather bring bad luck?

As we have just seen, finding a peacock feather is a sign of good luck, but is there a double message?

Although, in reality, it all depends on how you obtain those feathers.

Why can they be a source of bad luck?

The peacock is a mystical animal that should be treated with great respect. If in order to get his feathers, he is kept locked up in a pen, then, his feathers will bring bad luck. But if you carry around a feather that the bird has naturally lost, then it will bring you good luck and positive vibes.
