Ladybug Sightings Symbolism
“There’s no reason not to smile when a ladybug flies your way.
Or better, when she lands on you.
Tell her your special hopes and wishes.
Then she’ll be on her way to make them all come true.”

Like many spirit messengers that come in the form of a bug or a bird, the ladybug is bright in color so there’s no chance you’ll miss her arrival—if she wants you to see her—no matter how small she is. Although ladybug sightings are natural, there’s a distinct feel to their visit that lets you know when it’s more supernatural. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about your future or your next move and wondering if you’re following the right path to your freedom and success. In a moment of quiet contemplation, the ladybug arrives to let you know there’s no need to worry and no need to rush. Just let things unfold naturally. A ladybug sighting is one way a spirit can send you a comforting “I’m here” if ladybugs remind you of a special person. Try to “feel” the message of your ladybug sighting.
Luck, Trust, Adaptability, Abundance, and More
The ladybug often symbolizes luck, trust, adaptability, abundance, fulfilled wishes, and even past lives. Does what you’re experiencing now have a familiar past-life feeling? Are you experiencing blocks to your abundance? Do you trust the guidance of Spirit to lead you in the direction of success? A ladybug sighting reminds you to remain calm in your quest for your true path. It’s also there to let you know that whatever you’re doing at the moment or whatever you have in mind for the future is the proper path for you. The path to true enlightenment is never short—sometimes it’s never-ending, but if you stick with what you inherently know to be your truth and exhibit patience and determination, you really can’t go wrong.
Ladybugs in Cultures and Beliefs
Ladybugs are known as lady beetles or ladybird beetles in some countries. According to sunsigns.org, some Asian cultures believe that if you catch a ladybug and then set her free, she will fly to your true love and whisper your name in their ear. Some people believe that the number of spots on a ladybug’s back correlates to the number of months that will pass until you meet your one true love.
In Ireland, ladybugs are a symbol of protection. Farmers, in particular, see them as a sign of an abundant harvest—probably because they’re a very effective and natural pest control. When it comes to plant-eating bugs, ladybugs are ravenous carnivores, eating other bugs at an excessive rate. Only a few of the thousands of species of ladybugs have a taste for the plants themselves.
Ladybug as Spirit Guides and Totems
If the ladybug is your spirit guide, you have an open mind and share joy wherever you go. People in your life think you’re trusting and trustworthy and always look to you for your calming effect. Although calming in certain situations, you can also find boring, people who choose to do nothing.
If the ladybug is your totem animal, you’ve probably got tons of ladybug symbols and pictures in your office, home or car. You surround yourself with happiness and happy people; you bring joy and laughter into others’ lives. And although everyone, including you, realizes that you can be of great assistance to others, it’s quite possible that you don’t even realize just how helpful you can be.
Dreaming of Ladybugs
Have you ever had a dream that included a ladybug sighting? I’m talking about a dream where the ladybug is present, but she’s not the focus of the dream. If you have, then the ladybug is an indication of luck as it relates to the subject of your dream. However, ladybug sightings in dreams can also indicate problem areas, and some believe that the size of the ladybug can be an indication of the size of the problem. Often the symbolism of certain things in life has the direct opposite meaning in the dream world.
There are many ways in which a ladybug can manifest in your dreams, and all of them have a unique meaning. However, there’s one common belief about ladybug sightings in dreams. If you’re focused on negativity, then that subject needs your immediate attention. However, if you’re focused on abundance or making positive changes, then the ladybug in your dreams is seen as a good luck omen. If the ladybug is flying away, it’s as though you’ve let a dream go or pushed it aside for other reasons. But, if a ladybug is flying towards you, it’s an indication of luckier times to come.
