Macaw Parrot

Meaning, Medicine & Magic

Macaw spirit animal symbolizes rising, flair, and visibility.

Macaws are bright, bold, and loud! It’s time to unapologetically show off your unique qualities. No more hiding.

You have a skilled communicator and performer within you.

Your unique flair and skills plant the seeds of inspiration in others. We need to see you being your full self to help sprout something new within us.

Keep rising higher and higher. You are never “too much”.

Macaw can teach you how to use your uniquely intense colors (skills) to create a new vision for yourself and others.

Lessons In Wild Play

Nature is a master teacher. Research your animal’s habits in the wild and try playing & acting as it. How could this help shift your experiences?

  • Macaws are an endangered species. This just further emphasizes their rareness. Not only are you unique but there are even fewer people within your niche who can provide what you have to offer. So speak up and show up. Your specialties are needed.

  • The bright primary colors of macaws are screaming to you to be unapologetically bold and beautiful just as you are. You represent color in its purest saturated form. Pull from your color palette to create a new world for yourself and others. No need to look outside yourself for inspiration. You have everything you need.

  • Macaws wake up with the Sun and fly off early in the morning to search for food. This could indicate that you have the potential to be productive in the morning. Trying doing important tasks first thing in the day and see how it goes for you.

  • Like many birds, macaws promote the growth of forests as they keep dropping seeds they eat. You are a planter of seeds. Spreading inspiration everywhere you go.
  • Macaws are extremely intelligent. They can learn how to unlatch cages and mimic words and sounds. You are a clever and skilled communicator/performer.

  • Macaws use loud calls like screaming and squawking to communicate amongst themselves and to draw attention. You are not “too loud” or “too much”. If anything this is one of you’re gifts. Macaw is asking you to speak up more often because we could benefit from your unique viewpoint. Help draw our attention to helpful places.

    I met a beautiful soft pink macaw today while walking down the street. His color actually reminded me of the color of my auric field but I was really nervous being around him. My friend urged me to hold him and I did so fearfully! I was looking into his eyes and they really take you in when they look at you. When his mom went to take him back because it was time he ran up onto my shoulder and didn’t want to go! I have been having a tough time lately and this medicine (and your interpretation) was just what I needed to feel validated. Thank you!
