With its brightly colored feathers, the parrot is considered a bird of the sun. The attributes of color and association with the life-giving sun are what gives it its magic. Parrot feathers can be used in prayer sticks for powerful healing rites and also to invoke the energies of the sun at any time of the year.
Some parrots are taught to mimic humans. Because of this ability, the parrot is considered a link or bridge between the bird kingdom and the human one. In this sense, parrots can be viewed as ambassadors, diplomats, or interpreters for the bird realm. They have a magic that can awaken a diplomacy within and enable you to understand others more effectively.
In the Pueblo tradition, parrots are associated with the
gathering of salt. Salt was a precious commodity, and the places where salt was
found, were considered a gift from the sun. Since the parrot was a bird of the
sun to the Pueblo, there is that correlation. But the
most noticable attribute of parrots is its bright colors. Anyone with a parrot
as totem should study colors and their effects. Thus the parrot can be a wonderful
teacher of the power of light and color.
