You probably know that peacocks are associated with beauty and pride, but did you know they're sacred to Hera as a symbol of protection through watchfulness? Jealous of Zeus' dalliances with a human woman, Hera had her kidnapped. She stayed under the gaze of Argus, a giant with 100 eyes, until finally Zeus found them. After Zeus killed Argus, Hera honored him by placing his eyes on the tips of the peacock's tail.
In this elevated position, the peacock feathers have come to be associated with everything dealing with vision and clarity (such as second sight, clairvoyance, visions) and protection (watchfulness, guardianship).
