Resurrection and Watchfulness

The Peacock has many legends
surrounding its beautiful plumage.
Greek mythology tells of Hera
giving the peacock its many "eyes"
while Chinese mythos says that
the blending of the five colors of its feathers
is the sweet harmony of sound. 


The Peacock is also associated with the Phoenix.

In Egypt, the Peacock is linked
to the Sun God Ra and in Christianity,
the Peacock
is the symbol of death and resurrection

Those who have a Peacock as a totem can receive insight into
their past lives and their karmic connection to their current life.
The study and use of foot reflexology would also be beneficial
as the feet are very pronounced in the Peacock.

The Peacock loud and raucous call, almost like laughter,
reminds us to laugh at life.
