Lady Bugs

5.9.09

Various challenges and insights have come into my reality as of late, and I've learned the benefit of being fully aware of every moment. Interesting patterns have entered my awareness, one of them being, having several sightings of ladybugs at interesting times. So, I thought I would dig a little deeper, and see if there were any significance to these random, or not so random, sightings. Why not. I gotta have fun with it.

Here is what I found.

Ladybug - Life, Rebirth, Abundance, Hope

Lady bugs with their bright red shells and black spots carry the magic of rebirth. Red and black are the colors of thoughts and manifestation. Often Ladybug will appear to us when we have an opportunity to succeed, grow, and start something new. All of the beetle family transforms from larvae to adult, showing us we too can transform our lives. Let Ladybugs consume your unwanted fears and encourage new adventures.

Ladybug: The Ladybug is associated with spirituality and religious devotion. The name Ladybug originated in Europe during the Middle Ages, when insects were destroying the crops. Catholic farmers were said to have prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. Soon after, Ladybugs appeared and began eating the pests and saved the crops from destruction. The farmers began to call the Ladybugs “the Beetles of Our Lady” and eventually they were known as Lady Beetles. The Ladybug's red wings are said to represent the Virgin's cloak and the black spots her joys and sorrows.

The Ladybug is widely considered a symbol of luck and is seen as a good omen when it comes calling. In Sweden, it is said that if one lands on a young woman's hand, she will soon get married. In France, it is said that if you are ill when one lands on you, it will fly away with your illness.

Ladybugs are also considered to be symbols of fire and the Sun.

Ladybug teaches life is short and it teaches to let go of ones' worries and fears, to trust in spirit and enjoy life. It brings the gifts of renewal and regeneration. The message of the Ladybug could be asking you to “Let go and let God”.



If anyone out there has anything else to share or add, please let me know.

Have a blessed weekend!
