The Peacock was Hera's favorite bird in Greek mythology and can embody arrogance or spite. It is associated with vanity and the outer expression of inner beauty. You may dream of a peacock as a message that you are relying too much on outer appearance and may need to turn inward to cultivate your inner beauty. Since it has eyes in its feathers - it can symbolize being too concerned with what others think. You may dream of the peacock when you need to develop self pride - or when you are too focused on it. The behavior of the peacock can tell you which is at play. See also Birds.
