Written By Jamie Young

Have you ever had a dream about a peacock, and wondered what it could mean? In this article, we will answer that question, and all others you have about the elements, symbols, and meanings of dreams. The peacock is a symbol that comes up in many dreams and it’s usually because the bird itself is so strong and gorgeous. In particular, it’s a symbol of power, beauty, and transformation.

What Does a Peacock Mean in a Dream 

In dreams, the peacock is symbolic of a hard-working, self-reliant, and motivated individual. Dreaming of a peacock represents your creative nature and innocent spirit, but it can also symbolize vanity. You are attracting attention with what you’re wearing or the way you look. A peacock represents the good things in life, such as beauty and luxury. It denotes confidence and the ability to do what you like and make a statement about it. 

Seeing Peacock in Dream

If you’re dreaming of seeing a peacock may represent how you’re feeling about yourself, your progress, and your new beginnings. Taking control of your life and being able to let go of the past are both represented by the image of this majestic bird. You may be inspired to take on new challenges or goals.

Peacock Bite in Dream Meaning

When you’re dreaming about a peacock bite may point to a feeling of resentment against someone in your life. You feel that someone is taking advantage of you, but are unable to express it. Your subconscious may be telling you that this situation needs to be resolved as soon as possible.

Peacock Feather in Dream

Dreaming of a peacock feather symbolizes your concern for your image and how you are perceived by others. On the surface, you may be projecting an image of happiness and joy, but deep down you are feeling frustrated about feelings of personal insecurity. You also may be hiding something in your life, out of fear that others will judge you if they knew the truth.

Dream of Peacock Flying

If you’re dreaming of a peacock flying,  it could be a sign of something big coming your way. Maybe you’ll receive an unexpected promotion, or maybe you will finally get that job/reward/dinner date you thought you’d never find. Or, maybe the dream refers to something else entirely — ask yourself what other types of wild animals, landscapes, and people your subconscious has been bringing up.

Killing Peacock in Dream

Dreaming of killing a peacock indicates you will soon be forced to face a harsh reality. This dream denotes that something very beautiful will soon turn into something ugly or hideous. It also refers to an underlying sense of shame in your life. You feel the need to hide or maybe even run away from people who know you. This typically occurs due to some sort of hypocrisy or a lie you told someone.

White Peacock Dream Meaning

Dreaming of a white peacock generally takes place in a situation where you have decided to part with some aspect of your life that is holding you back from ultimate success, but it isn’t easy. In order for you to move forward, you’re going to have to release some things. By releasing these things, you can open yourself up for success and new opportunities.

Dreams About Peacocks Attacking

If you’re dreaming about peacocks attacking, it means that you are very worried about a situation where you feel that your careless actions have put you in danger. The dream may mean that you should be more careful about how you handle some situations as you could end up hurting yourself.

Dead Peacock in Dream

If you’re dreaming about a dead peacock is a sign of sadness, death, and loss. The dream may be trying to reveal how you feel about something that is gone, was taken from you, or died in some way. The vision may also reveal your intense feelings about someone else’s death.


Dreaming of a peacock represents that you have a strong desire for luxury and beauty. You may be overly concerned with how others perceive you.
