Ironically, a common curse was to present someone with a peacock feather. If he or she accepted, then bad luck would result. It may have been the equivalent as declaring someone a poser, since they were neither royalty nor exotic.
The colorful bird carries itself with dignity and pride. The peacock believes in itself; reminding us to do the same. It is a feisty fowl that takes over territory. Anywhere if goes, it claims. It reminds you to take charge of your dreams and stop waiting on your fairy godmother to show up.
It’s no wonder that the peacock represents both magic and beauty. Its beauty is self-evident while its magic is in timing. It prompts you to step out at the perfect time. Its demanding voice delivers word magic. When the peacock calls, everyone pays attention.
Even though it is the male, not the peahen, that has the showy plumage, the peacock is sometimes associated with feminine power. Maybe this is because the small, dull colored female can motivate several peacocks to go out of their way to woo her.
Next time, someone tells you that you’re as proud as a peacock, take it as a compliment.
