Our angels like to send us signs to let us know they are listening and working on our prayers and requests. Symbols like feathers are most important when they are meaningful to the person who receives them, especially if you have asked your angels for a sign. The first question to ask is "What does the sign mean to me?" What were you doing or thinking about when you noticed the sign or feather? When analyzing anything, ask yourself first always, "What does this mean to me?"

Symbols are only as important as they are to the person experiencing them. Meaning, what it means to you is always the most important, not what another teacher tells you it should mean or what I tell you it should me. I did a bit of research when I was first asked this question and found that most meanings went along the lines of the traditional chakra colours and their meaning, along with some of the colour therapy teachings. It works for me when I use it, so why not use it. It is truly about your intentions and what you assign to them, so being open is the most important thing.

If I find a feather of a unique colour, that can be extra meaningful to me. If I find a feather floating in a spot where one should not be, like inside my house, it has deeper meaning to me. When I notice a feather when I am outdoors, my attention has been drawn to it for a reason, so I look deeper.

Here are some generalized meanings for you to begin to work with while you are learning to trust yourself and the signs you receive.
