Peacock

Peacock was considered as the bird of Hera (Juno), wife of Zeus (Jupiter) and had the meaning of solar disk.

In Christian tradition it has the same meaning: solar disk represented by the circle of Peacock’s tail symbolizes immortality; it’s tail pictures the starry sky as well. Peacock is called an animal with hundred eyes and stands for the eternal beatitude. Sometimes it appears on the both sides of the Tree of Life symbolizing the incorruptible soul and the duality of human psychic. It is also considered as a symbol of spiritual rebirth and resurrection.

In esoteric traditions the Peacock is the symbol of totality because it reunites all the colors in it’s tail. It indicates the nature of all the manifestations and their fragility through  the appearance and disappearance of the magnificent tail.
