[rhetorical question] Why was I dreaming about a feather last night??
It was a long slender black feather that had beautiful turquoise streaks in it.
In my dream, I sat in a living room, searching through an old wooden trunk (apparently for this feather) and found it. I began running my fingers along its fibers, to straighten them out, all the while, I was carrying on a very casual and happy conversation with my Uncle Fred, (who recently passed away in March) who was sitting upright in a recliner chair.
Later that night, in another dream... there were brown feathers! A tube top like shirt for a doll or puppy that was made from richly colored short brown feathers (this might be coming from my daughters real life build a bear with all of its clothes). I thought this was a bit odd as I don't remember ever dreaming of feathers before! So, for fun, I looked up the meaning of feathers and those colors on dream moods, hear are some snippets about these things:
To see peacock, ostrich, or any other ornamental feathers denotes advancement up the social ladder. You will be met with much success in your future.
Turquoise: As a color, turquoise is symbolic of healing power, karma and natural energy.
Black: Black symbolizes the unknown, the subconscious, danger, mystery, darkness, death, mourning, rejection, hate or malice. The color invites you to delve deeper in your subconscious in order to gain a better understanding of yourself. It also signifies a lack of love and lack of support. More positively, black represents potential and possibilities. It is like a clean or blank slate. If the feeling in the dream is one of joy, then blackness could imply hidden spirituality and divine qualities.
