Symbolic of covering and protection, Ps. 91:4.
A person or creature with feathers within a dream may be an evil spirit
It is wise to put no meaning to Feathers in themselves; they should be treated as emblems of colour, such as White, Black, Red, Blue, and so on. See under COLOUR for the meaning.
A reminder of messages already given to you.
The significance of this dream lies chiefly in their color.
Eagle feathers predict that you will achieve the goal of your ambitious.
Ostrich plumes portend a successful business deal.
White feathers foretell success; dark feathers, the reverse (Artemidorus). A symbol of power, and in Egypt the emblem of truth, goodness and knowledge.
(see by type, Birds, Flying, Wings)
Spiritual purity and truth: In ancient Egypt, the soul was weighed upon death against the Plume of Maat, whose name means truth. Similarly, the Hopi regard the gift of an owPs feather as a means of helping the recipients be true to themselves. Less directly this may pertain to honesty in communications.
Lifting of guilt or burdens, or someone who is a truly free spirit (e.g., being Tight as a feather”).
Changeability: Feathers equate to the air element that shifts directions without any forewarning.
A prognostication: In ancient Greece, people used found bird feathers as portents of their travels and the future. Consider the feathers color, where it lands, and the type of bird from which it comes for expanded interpretations.
