Symbolic Meaning of Feathers


 Symbol meaning of feathers deal with ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Feathers were worn by Native American Chiefs to symbolize their communication with Spirit, and to express their celestial wisdom.

Also in the Native American Indian culture, feathers represented the power of the thunder gods, along with the power of air and wind.

Native American Pueblo Indians would pay homage to the Feathered Sun which is a symbol of the cosmos and the center of existence.

 Another symbol meaning of feathers also revolves around prayer, and the Pueblo use feather sticks as they dance in prayer for rain during solstice rituals.

As a Celtic symbol meaning, the feather was worn by Druids in the form of ornate feathered robes. Celtic Druids donned these robes in ceremonies to invoke the sky gods and gain knowledge of the celestial realm. It was believed that the feathered cloak along with the presence of the sky gods would allow the Druid to transcend the earthly plane and enter the ethereal realm.

The Egyptians believed that feathers were symbolic of sky gods too. Ma'at, the Egyptian goddess of justice, would weigh the hearts of the newly dead in the underworld against the weight of a feather to determine the worthiness of his or her soul.

In Christianity feathers represented virtues. In fact, an image of three feathers were made into signet rings - each feather symbolizing Charity, hope, and faith. These rings were worn as a symbol of a virtuous soul - they were also used as wax seals.

 The ring would be dipped in warm wax then pressed against documents to seal the closure. The recipient would know the documents came from a virtuous man by the indication of the three-feather symbol in the wax.


According to legend, when someone finds a black feather, it means that the guardian of their soul is near them. The feathers are supposed to remind the individual that he or she is not fighting the battles of life alone.

Lemon Rosemary Blend

  1. 2C Water
  2. 10 Drops Lemon Essential oil
  3. 1 Sprig of Rosemary
  1. In a sauce pan on the stove heat water to a boil, turn off, and add Rosemary.
  2. Steep Rosemary for 2 minutes.
  3. Add lemon essential oil.
  4. Carefully pour into a diffuser pot and allow to fill your home with cleansing fragrance.
  5. Add water to the pot every 30 minutes or so to maintain a good water level and prevent drying out or burning. I would not allow this mixture to steep longer than a few hours as the spells energy will dilute as time passes and as more water is added.
Spell Work
  1. Gather your ingredients and supplies in your kitchen. Make sure your pot is clean.
  2. As you pour the water into your pot for heating pay attention to the clean clear water and how refreshing and cleansing water is by nature.
  3. If it helps think of a time when you took a shower after working all the garden or in another very sweaty dirty situation. Think of how you felt after you washed away all the dirt, sweat, and heat from your labor.
  4. Hold on to that feeling of refreshment and clean.
  5. Before you add your ingredients to the water, smell them. Embody their fragrance expand the feeling of clean to your home.
  6. Allow the pot and scents to do the rest. Each time you come near the pot to add more water, breathe in the cleansing fragrance and once again embody the feeling of clean energy.
