The Fabric of Dream | Katherine Taylor Craig

To see a peacock in your dream is a sign of pride and vanity. In some traditions, however, it is a sign of the soul and because the peacock can shed its feathers and grow new beautiful ones, for Christians it is a symbol of resurrection or new life. As a male bird displaying its feathers, the peacock is a symbol of male sexuality and may be a warning against arrogance over your success. It also indicates a surge of new understanding from the plain and unadorned bird to the beauty of the fully-plumed bird.

Gypsy Dream Dictionary | Raymond Buckland

Symbol: A peacock, with a fanned-out tail, is a symbol of the sun—but also of vanity.

Vision: Seeing a peacock with a fanned-out tail: being brash and overconfident might impress some people; most, however, think it laughable. You would make a much better impression on people if you were less vain and arrogant. Screeching peacocks: a tempting invitation or project—but extreme caution is in order! In a mans dream, the peacock means meeting a woman who is hiding ambition and ego behind her charm.

Depth Psychology: This dream also is an indication of too much vanity. Even if you do just normal bragging to impress others, or attempt to amaze people with your intellectual faculties, someday you are going to make a fool of yourself—give it up!
