Symbolism of the Pheasant
Meanings and powers of the Pheasant Feather:
• resourcefullness
• prosperity
• creativity
• influence
• sexuality
• wealth
• Refinement
• sun, solar energy
• Sexuality
• Nobility
• Virtue
• and magic.

The pheasant is a native bird of China where it is revered for its beauty, and thought of as a solar animal. Indeed, the Golden pheasant’s body is a shock of flaming red; its head a ruddy yellow. So intense are these solar colors that there is some debate as to whether or not the Golden pheasant (image shown right) may be linked to the legendary phoenix.
Whatever the case, the pheasant represents yang energy and so it carries attributes of fire, life, summer, male, and action to name a few.
Also in China the pheasant is a symbol of nobility, and is associated with high-rank in political office and civil service.
In Japan the pheasant is a divine messenger for Amaterasu, the great sun goddess. Amaterasu is a focal point of the Shinto pantheon. She is the ruler of the heavens, so her association with the pheasant made this creature an important symbol of power, abundance and promise.
Native American lore considered the pheasant a symbol of protection and concealment. Presumably because regardless of their airborne capabilities, they prefer most of their time hunkered down in tall grass, concealed from sight. Further, unlike most winged creatures, the pheasant nests on the ground rather than trees.
Pheasants are considered symbols of sexuality because of the amazingly attractive male. Furthermore, the male’s appearance is quite effective, and often wins him a harem of females.
Lastly, the pheasant is a cousin of the peacock, and its symbolic attributes are similar to those of the peacock which can be found here.
Pheasants make excellent animal totems for many reasons. Their energy stimulates sexuality, encourages creativity, and enhances energy.

Pheasant Animal Symbolism

The flamboyant, eye-popping colors of the male pheasant, reminds us that nature knows no end to its variety and creativity. Nature makes a way for these males to be very attractive to their female counterparts by design. Consequently their bright colors are perfect for wooing pheasant strumpets.
Indeed, they are so effective, that males often have a harem of three hens at once. This is symbolic of creativity, sexuality, influence and magic. Why? Because females hold the gift of life (reproduction, creation of offspring), and the number three is a magical number that deals with the union of two to bring about the creation of another (male + female=progeny).
Those with the pheasant as their totem have the same ability to attract love and creativity in their lives as the male pheasant does. These people have strong libidos and are able to attract a healthy amount of attention from those with whom they desire to partner. Yes, even many at a time if they so choose.
A Quick-List of Pheasant Animal Symbolism:
• Using your gifts to get what you want.
• Knowing when to express yourself and when to refrain from doing so.
• Being aware of when to protect yourself and your loved ones.
• Being creative, productive, and tapping into the passions that burn within you.

It is important to note the element of balance in having this totem, and the pheasant's environment is our indication. He is a riot of glam and color, but ever-ready to slip into the tall grasses or sheltering shrubbery when he must. In other words, the pheasant can be a show off, but he is always ready to retract his wiles when the time calls for it.
This a powerful metaphor in our lives. We can show our bright colors of creativity, and influence in the world – but we must know the proper time in which to do so. The pheasant reminds us that no matter how vibrant and original we may be, if we carelessly throw our gifts out at inappropriate times, or to un-listening audiences our efforts are in vain.
Further, those who resonate with the pheasant may be wild on the outside, but quite tender-hearted and conservative on the inside. The pheasant asks that we honor our genuine selves, and not pretend to be something we are not. This incorporates the symbolism of protection of ourselves and our loved ones. Just as the pheasant knows when to blaze their beauty, they also know when to hide in the shadows for as a defense.
Their amazing ability to camouflage themselves, and hide may well have something to do with the fact the species has been hunted for both food and sport for ages. Over the eons the pheasant has “self-preservation” hard-wired in their bodies, and they know when to go.
The pheasant animal symbolism also speaks to us about the value of balance in areas of spirituality. Being an air animal totem, the pheasant deals with thought, dreams, aspiration, spirituality, and things that lift us into higher states of consciousness.
However, although an air creature, the pheasant rarely flies, and when she does, it is in short bursts and without much air time.
This is symbolic of our ability to reach ever-increasing heights in our spiritual understanding, but we must recognize the need for groundedness.
There is a reason air balloons have sand bags. Be lifted, be inspired, climb ever higher on your path to spiritual awareness – but the grounded pheasant reminds you to keep your feet on the ground too.
Animal symbolism of the pheasant includes:
• Passion
• Balance
• Sexuality
• Protection
• Creativity
• Good Judgment
• Being Genuine
• Law of Attraction
