Some years ago, I worked with the angels to create this feather meanings colour chart. I am happy to see that my meanings have whizzed around the internet ever since.
I say this, because I want you to understand how feathers and their meanings become associated. A black feather hasn’t always meant ‘you are protected’. Someone, somewhere had to agree that meaning with the angels; and then pass that knowledge on.
Feathers are similar to tarot cards. In my book Tarot in 5 Minutes, I explain how tarot works as a tool to communicate with the spirit world. They can talk to us through the cards. Feathers are a similar tool, with the same goal. If people are aware of what each feather color means – then the angels will know which feather to send when they want to give you a specific message. Both sides understand the code. Do you see?
As time goes on, I continue to build on this colour chart. Feel free to email me if you don’t see your feather here, and I will certainly ask for guidance on the meaning.
Note: Recently the angels asked me to modify a few meanings to reflect world events. For example, red feathers have now become a symbol of protecting the planet instead of green feathers. This is because the angels feel red reflects the urgency of the climate crisis more accurately.
