These techni-colour parrots are well known in Australia, their vivid hues enriching tree, garden, park or soup tins! The name Rosella is said to be derived from ‘rosehill parrots’; Rose Hill, Sydney, being where they were first seen by white people.

A Dreaming about Rosella is one of tragedy which triumphs with love as the ultimate victor.  A couple run away together; although she is promised to a wirrinin (magic man) who wreaks his revenge and kills her man.  She is so in grief the jealous wirrinin goes to strike her.  The Great Spirit intervenes and she is instantly transformed into the first Rosella.  She then flies off to the Land of the Dead to reach her lover before he crosses into it.  In a race against time, she reaches him.  Today, Rosellas still mate for life.

Rosella embodies eternal love and devotion.  A pair of rosellas and there’s a sign of the Tao, yin and yang, male and female, wholeness.  One or many, Rosella indicates love and a shared journey. There could also be disruptive ‘outside’ forces challenging a special relationship in your life; or a need to prove devotion like the archetypal Romeo and Juliet – minus the tragic results! You may be in a situation where you have to prove your commitment and defy the odds. Timing could also be an issue, there may be limits or the pace could be hectic with deadlines; things will certainly be at a fast pace with time flying swiftly! Although challenging as a native symbol, Rosellas flying into your vision can auger a dream come true – but not in the way you anticipated!

    Hi, thanks for taking the time to describe the symbolism of the Rosella. I was meditating and specifically saw a Rosella, only one, and it flew into my vision and perched on the top of a wire fence which was enclosing a barren weed filled urban block of land. My initial thought was ‘the Rosella brought hope and light and colour to my current situation’. I lost my home and land to the bank a few years ago at age 50 and now at 56, still a conscientious single mum, I get a little despondant that I’ll never regain a safe haven of my own again, on my own. And yet there was only bird in the vision, so apparently yes I can! ? I’ve also been manifesting a business of my own, which belongs to the man I work for who is retiring, with the intention to use that business’ profit to buy myself a block of land for security, so that I can pass something down to my 2 sons, having lost their inheritance and my ancestor’s hard work as well. I feel guilty but determined to make things right. Anyway, I’m trying to pull a rabbit out of the magic hat (trying to encourage a wealthy friend to put up the security deposit for me to get a bank loan) and using all my metaphysical tools and knowledge (combining source energy with intention and action, actively choosing feelings of love, visualising and meditating, and accepting that the outcome will be positive) and yet I get despondant because all the co-operative companants aren’t lining up yet. But the Rosella has told me there will be joy. At least that’s my interpretation. What do you think? Please be honest. Your thought may be totally different to mine. Oh, and for completion, just because you kept mentioning love and mating for life re Rosellas, I’ve met a lovely fellow recently. BUT he’s flat broke too and I really can’t see him assisting me in my journey to buy and run this business that I’m heading towards. AND there was only one Rosella in my vision. But then I have been a loner for many many years and the block of land effort will come via me, so maybe I can do it on my own and also allow love in anyway. Just sayin….
