With the Equinox and Libra New Moon energies abound, heralding potential big energy shifts that will reveal to us a beauty, creative potential, and inspiration through transmutation we have yet to know and experience, these magickal images felt reflective of that energy.

If you have never seen a peacock in flight, I think you’ll agree from the images that these ethereal birds are truly reminiscent of mythical creatures when they spread their wings and fly.


From elegant, Earthly being, majestically and gracefully reigning over the gardens of life, they transform into an other-worldly, Phoenix-like creature soaring magickally through the limitless sky of opportunities.

Peacocks symbolize many things including integrity, the beauty we can achieve through showing our authentic colors, guidance, protection, holiness, nobility, vibrancy, help on your spiritual path, breath of new life into your experience, rejuvenating self-esteem, expansion of your creativity and imagination, and courage to show up as your unique self.


They also symbolize glory, vision, watchfulness, royalty, spirituality, awakening, immortality, refinement, beauty, desire, enjoying life, generosity, longevity, compassion, sensuality, immortality, and expansiveness.


In Buddhism the peacock symbolizes expansive consciousness and is representative of the all-compassionate goddess Kuan Yin.

The eyes of the peacock feathers symbolizing the omniscient essence of the soul that is all-seeing and all-knowing.

As a royal status, peacocks represent the realm of the Empress and High Priestess.


Being a solar animal peacocks express the essence of vitality, radiance, glory, stimulation, life, health, and invigoration.

Alchemical traditions compare the resurrecting Phoenix to our modern-day Peacock, bestowing the symbolism of renewal upon it.

As Astrologer Robert Wilkinson of the Aquarius Papers shares: “….it’s time to get inspired and light up the sky of our life!”

I hope you enjoy these stunning images that reflect your inherent creative potentials and the sensual grace of your truth.

  1. I have never even imagined that peacocks fly. To see these photos of them in flight is just extraordinary. Thanks so much for sharing the pictures and the symbolism.

    • you’re welcome! perhaps the stretch into air from earth was a bit “uncomfortable” to imagine? 😉 a little “ethereal nature” for you ❤ i imagined they did fly, but never saw it until these. i agree, it IS quite extraordinary and magickal.
