Spiritual Meaning Of Ladybugs - They’re Famous Good Luck Charms

What is the spiritual meaning of ladybugs?

When it comes to the insect family, ladybugs have the gift of attracting humans because they are harmless, benevolent, and even useful. This is surely the reason why their symbolism is so strong, so present, and why these creatures are considered as lucky charms.

Ladybugs famously symbolize the following elements;

  • Good luck
  • Lucky charm
  • Problem-solving
  • Love
  • Fertility
  • Change and metamorphosis
  • Divine intervention

Whenever you see a ladybug, you can be sure that happiness will eventually make an appearance in your life. If things currently seem dark to you, light will eventually shine through and positive changes will occur. After all, the ladybug is one of the most famous lucky charms, just like four-leaf clovers or lucky bamboo. In a difficult situation, for example, the ladybug will bring a smile to your face and give you the strength to take action to create your own luck. Finally, if one of these enchanting insects lands on you, it is a powerful sign of blessing and good fortune.

🤩 It's a pretty rare phenomenon, so if by chance a ladybug lands on you, perhaps you'll be lucky enough to have one of your dreams come true by having it fly away from the tip of your index finger. Be careful, though, you should never keep a ladybug to yourself or try to lock it up!

A symbol of positive change

Going from being a larva to a pretty, light creature, the transformation and the metamorphosis of the ladybug, reminds us that sometimes we need to be patient. It also reinforces the idea that change takes time and that, as the saying goes, "good things come to those who wait."

🐞 Therefore, the message of the ladybug landing on you, is the following; know how to keep an open mind, trust yourself, and look at change as an event to experience with ease, simplicity, and lightness.

The ladybug: A spiritual meaning and a spirit animal

The ladybug is also known as the God beast. This nickname indicates the spiritual nature of the insect. Indeed, the ladybug flies so high that we tend to think that it is a bridge between the afterlife and the earthly world, making it an excellent source of inspiration for a spiritual awakening.

The ladybug can also choose to become your spirit animal. It will show you the path to follow while giving you confidence in your abilities, your talents, and your creativity. As a good luck charm, if the ladybug is your totem animal then it is also your protector, and will invite you to accomplish great things.

A symbol of love and fertility

This meaning is less talked about, but the ladybug is also a symbol of love. It is said to bring together soulmates, those who are meant to love each other, and is also a sign of impending marriage if it crosses a couple's path. The insect is also associated with fertility, motherhood, and even childbirth. If you're wondering when you're going to get pregnant or want more luck and strength during your pregnancy or delivery, turn to the ladybug!

Orange ladybug spiritual meaning

Orange ladybugs are a more powerful message of transformation. It is because of the creative passion that comes from the color orange. Not only do they convey a strong message of transformation, but they also communicate that changing your life will bring you joy as a result of the smart decisions you make. Whether the ladybug prefers a trusted transformation or informs you that you should consider implementing a smart transformation really depends on your context. Meditate and reflect on the subject: what do you think this means for you? 

It could well be that the orange ladybug that crossed your path today was doing it to remind you that you are brave and smart. Maybe it's time to reflect on your current life and think about your desires. How can you be passionate and courageous, but as the color orange represents, smart in your pursuit of your desires?

What does it mean if you find a dead ladybug?

The ladybug can appear in your life, alive or dead, and sometimes you may even only see it in a dream. It is important to keep in mind, however, that all the positive aspects of the ladybug do not disappear because it is dead. In fact, even if you find a dead one, it remains a symbol of good luck, but it could also mean that you are facing an existential crisis, therefore, nothing seems more distant than the prospect of a positive change. If you find a lifeless ladybird, sit back, reflect, meditate and find a way to attract your luck. The same principle applies to your dreams. Dreaming of one foresees happiness, a positive change or simply good vibes!

Ladybug spiritual meaning love: Test your luck 

If the ladybug lands on your hand, you have to count to 22, and if it doesn't fly off until the end of the count, a happy love story awaits you. Indeed, it’s a way for the higher powers to reassure you that romance is coming. This sign should reassure you that love is in the air for you and that if you have been single for a long time, you will eventually meet someone who is prepared to sweep you off your feet. Love is a powerful emotion, which needs to be respected and cared for if it is to last.

Susan Taylor’s insights: Think about the deeper meaning

Insects of all kinds are generally typically strong symbols of transformation. This is because they go through a larval stage, which is drastically different in appearance compared to their final form. So when a ladybug comes your way, it may be an omen of incoming transformation of some kind. It can also be a message that maybe you should be open to transforming your lifestyle for the better. Tip: think about it.
