When me and my closest friend were talking about her chosen one, I was admittedly saddened because I had once been her lover and I was not over her yet.

During our talk, we were walking and she noticed twice that ladybugs were at our feet, and when she tried to have one go on her hand, it refused and tried to avoid her.

However, when I placed my had close to it, it immediately when for my hand.

This was at least a month ago, but today another occurrence happened with a lady bug. while I was in my car at a stop sign, a ladybug came to the hood of my car. I saw it land, and as if we had made eye contact, it left feeling like it had given it's private message.

Though I've read the animal symbolism's for a ladybug, I don't quite understand the exact nature of these meetings. the only thing I know for certain is that it was a very positive message. would anyone have more insight to this?

Avia's Response to
"Ladybug Love Symbolism"


Hello Mike,

Firstly, I want to recognize (and commend) your level of sensitivity. It takes a special soul to pick up on the subtle cues and messages of Nature, especially from the tiniest insect realms.

There is an ancient Chinese legend that links the ladybug with love. The story goes that when a ladybug comes to call, it is a sign that true love will also pay us a visit. Further renditions of the legend state the number of spots on the ladybug indicate the amount of months that will pass until we are united with our true love.

I love myth and legends, but I don't subscribe to hanging all of our hopes on them.

Rather, I look within (the soul, heart, mind, etc) and see how my inner impulses relate to the symbolic phenomenon occurring in my life (such as a visitation from a ladybug).

I also love the presence of color in nature, and often link chakra meanings (chakras are energy centers in the body and presented to us by ancient Hindu wisdom) to colors that come to me in visitations.

For example, the ladybug (to me) is a symbol of passion, ardor, adoration, amorousness because of its color, red. According to chakra wisdom, red is associated with the Muladhara charka (the root chakra) which deals with passion, desire, primal urge and even sex. There are other subtle layers to this chakra and its color, but it always triggers the feeling of a passionate fire kindling within me.

Hence, when a ladybug comes to call, I always sense its a message of connecting with my passion, connecting with a love that ignites my whole being. Very auspicious, and a very positive connection.

Does this mean the ladybug is a symbol of you united with your friend in a love relationship?

Rather than go there, I want to say the ladybug in your case is absolutely a message of love. I also want to say that love comes in countless forms. Your ladybug could be a reminder to you to keep your heart open, and remain in a loving state in order to connect with your true love (whether that be your friend, some other lucky person equally suited for you at this time, or even a love for work, hobby or reconnecting with family).

The details of your ladybug message will be left up to you to work out. But I can confirm the ladybug as an auspicious (positive) messenger of love.

Furthermore, I'm convinced the ladybug would not have come to you if you were not emitting an energy of love to begin with (they sense our energy levels, and are attracted to that "red" kind of vibe).

So...keep your heart in a loving state, and in response to that state, know that love shall always fly to you and land within your heart.

Hope this helps you Mike.

Brightly,
Avia

Ladybugs visited me when my father passed away NEW
by: Maria D

I want to share this with all the people who saw ladybugs when their love ones passed away. The day my father passed away, while I was crying in my bedroom, a lot of ladybugs entered my bedroom. I was fascinated and I stopped crying immediately as I felt a comforting and calming feeling inside me. I was sure, it was so certain that it was a message from heavens. I could not explain it but I knew it for certain that something magic was happening. Since then I have been looking for similar stories to confirm what I always knew and I'm glad to come to this page and see people who have had the same experiences. Yes, I believe we are blessed. Ladybugs have visited me recently again and alighted on me, and since then only good things have come to my life.
Avia, I have no words to express how thankful i am for your webpage. It is been inspiring me for years now. I always find answers to my questions in your writings. You are such a good writer and have such a knowledge. Thank you

Found An Orange Lady bug NEW
by: Anonymous

Today I randomly went to shut my window as it was a breezy day. only my screen was open, so no bugs would fly in.

well, I noticed a peculiar orange spotted bug, which I looked closer and it was a lady bug,which i haven't seen one since before i was ten years old when my nanny died. I am twenty now.

It's on the built in set of drawers in cabinets, right next to my headphones, and I don't ever remember seeing it prior. Days before I was talking with a friend about not being able to find love. Now, the bug isn't moving as far as I can tell, but I can't see how many spots it has.

If it is dead, does that symbolize myself not finding love, and bad luck? I've heard many times a lady bug is good, but does the same go for a dead one, along with what it symbolizes?

A response would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

My mother and a ladybug NEW
by: Anonymous

Maybe someone out there can answer this.

My mom passed away on Sept 11 2012 and I miss her so terribly. I keep finding ladybugs in my work office (hospital), I never saw these before she passed. I'm wondering if it's possible she's sending them to me, since I always thought they were so beautiful when I was a little girl. Or could it be just her spirit manifesting itself in these lady bugs? Thank you.

LADYBIRDS NEW
by: LIAN

when starting to decorate my christmas tree i discovered it was covered with at least 20 little ladybirds, then when removing my tree, there where still a few left and some around my living room. Then last night a had a very real dream about ladybirds on my hands and i couldn't get them off. i dont know if this is a warning or not. and wondered was there any occult/supersistion or beliefs around ladybirds.

strange NEW
by: Anonymous

I just find it ironic that most of the commentators have been having issues with their spouse/loved one and receive the sign of the ladybug. My husband and are currently separated. I want him back into my life but as the days go on I hear less and less from him. I had a really disturbing dream last night that was based off of the fears I have about my husband. At the end of the dream I was alone and crying in my bed and beetles started crawling all over my walls. There was hundreds in all different colors. It was pretty for a moment, but I focused on one one beetle in particular (a ladybug) and in it's two black spots I saw through the eyes of my husband (as if I were staring into his eyes and soul) which gave me a really uneasy feeling...

So I tried to make a ladybug habitat, but ended up making a cloning chamber... NEW
by: Anonymous

It's the beginning of December. Yesterday evening, I was in the living room and noticed a ladybug crawling on the window sill. I captured it, looked up ladybug info online, and decided to help it overwinter-- or, at the very least, give it something to eat to fill up its fatty reserves before releasing it outside. So by the end of that night, I had succeeded in making the ladybug a makeshift home-- a punctured plastic jar with some twigs and leaves from the yard, a moistened strip of paper towel, and food (sugar crystals, smidge of banana, smear of wheast, soaked raisin cut in half). So basically, I offered it a buffet.

The next day, something weird happened. I came home late at around 9pm, and lo and behold, inside the makeshift habitat, was not ONE ladybug-- but TWO. Yep, somehow, I was staring at a SECOND adult-sized ladybug.

Here's the thing-- I only collected ONE ladybug. I am sure of that. Also the lid was closed the entire day. And the air slits are not large enough to allow a ladybug to crawl in or out... all of which makes the presence of the second ladybug physically impossible-- yet here it was. Sadly, it was on its back and probably dead-- its inner wings caught on itself-- I imagine it tried to fly, hit the lid and collapsed, injuring itself. Not much I could do for that one. Time to rest, little buddy.

The remaining one, however-- this weird, weird clone, or the original, or whatever I am confused now-- was very active, short of flying away. In fact, so fearful was I that it too might injure itself, that I decided to let it out into the front yard-- at least that way, if it were to die anyway, it would die as part of nature, where it belongs. So I took it outside (cupped in my hands) ready to coerce it onto a leaf or something-- and it's freezing mind you, I'm in a hoodie and jeans because who would've thought it'd take this long right--

But the little thing just would not leave.

So it's hanging around on the base of my thumb, occasionally trying to sneak up my sleeve when I wasn't looking (seeking the warmth probably)-- but I mean it's a ladybug, it has a built-in biological method of dealing with cold seasons (diapause) but regardless, it just wouldn't let me put it down anywhere. A quite disagreeable ladybug. I probably could have flicked it into the bushes, but then it would tell its kids and grandkids about me (I hear ladybugs like to get real busy) and then all of a sudden, I'm facing a swarm of multi-generational ladybugs seeking revenge. No thanks, Disney.

So now it's back in the habitat. The habitat is in the cold cellar. I'm hoping to force diapause with the intent of releasing it come spring.

Let's hope it survives.

Ladybug Symbolism
by: Diane

Hello My ladybug Friend,

Ladbugs are symbolic to love, hope and spirit. 3 years ago when my Mom passed ladybugs showed up in every aspect of my mourning. It started with her Memorial service and has been present in my life ever since. It is what keeps hope alive. I believ in my herta of hearts it is their way of communicating to us and to say we are protected. My close circle of friends and family know how much they mean to me and when I see them outside, on Tv, in conversation or in gifts I receive I feel every one of those moments are connections with my Mom. Take it for what its worth. I only pray it brings you comfort as it has for me and continues to throught my days.
Peace and love to you....

Lady Bugs represent blessings
by: Zey

Some months ago I did my own research on lady bugs and came across a site that said lady bugs represent a sign from God.

I cannot remember in detail what they said but what my own interpretation now every time I see one is that God is with me, blessing me and showing me I am not alone. I saw more than 6 lady bugs today and before then I had been having a marvelous day feeling the holy spirit ... those bugs to me represented God smiling with me saying great things are coming soon.

Beautiful but it is a predator
by: Solve

How much of symbolism is related to real life?
I am quite new to this wonderful world of symbolism and myths. When I read this article and the comments I was thinking about the nature of ladybugs that really is not so cute as it is beautiful. this little animal is a predator and even a cannibal if there is no other food to eat.

In my view the symbols of the ladybug would be not a positive sign, but maybe a warning.

Here you can read some facts about he ladybug:

An momemt with a lady bug
by: Anonymous

tonight for the first time in several weeks I had a quiet moment. So I sat down to journal in a special book meant for my heart to read someday when he is ready. As I am journaling, I look up and here sits a ladybug on my bed. It was one of these moments when you know it means something. After all it is past lady bug weather in Michigan being the end of Oct. Anyway, as I stop to think, then make a phone call to a spiritual friend, this lady bug jumps right into the book and sits there. Then Flies up and lands in vacinity of my heart. Not knowing what that might mean I looked up and found this site.
I can certainly hope it does mean good luck and my wish to come true. I have been in a friendship for nine years, that is evolving to something more. I have been praying for a year, that this only happen if the creator wants this to happen, and if he doesn't that it would just quietly drift away. So far, it just keeps moving closer in a one step forward, two backwards type of dance. I can only hope I get my wish and the heart of my warrior, but only if it is the will of the creator.

found her
by: Mike

funny thing, I've met my destined lover more or less a week ago :)

just as a side note, I'm a very special tarot card reader, and when doing my first reading of her, my cards threw out three important cards ( I do not read cards in any pattern, my deck refuses to do so. I only need to shuffle it and the cards pop out.) the three cards were: the two of cups, the page of swords (the core personality of my loved one) and the knight of swords (my core personality card).

during the first few days we met, three ladybugs came to me, and thought I knew they were a message of love, I never got a chance to see the number of spots, thus I knew it would be soon. I'm also not surprised that ladybugs are attracted to me, seeing as I am a water/fire element, thus making me a very passionate person.

thank you very much for your time and knowledge, I appreciated it very much!
