Black Feather Meanings


Protected and Safe

Traditionally black is associated with mourning and death – and so,  if you receive a black feather,  you might worry that it is a bad omen. Please don’t worry, in this instance, a black feather is a lovely sign to receive.  Black absorbs light and traps negative energy, and for this reason is considered a symbol of protection. It is the spirit world’s way of saying:

You are protected and safe. 

Perhaps you are going through, or considering going through, a series of changes in your life. Life is full of ebbs and flows, ups and downs. If you have been sent a black feather, it means you are not alone, the spirit world sense your pain, or worry. They are reassuring you, that there is light at the end of the tunnel. 

Additional Meanings

You are in the midst of a spiritual awakening, you are in the eye of the storm, so be patient with yourself. In Ancient Egypt, black was associated with life and rebirth.
