A Ladybug Showed Up in my Loft Today! I hadn't been out since the day before and all the doors and windows had been closed...but some how she found her way in! So I caught her and set her free! Then I decided to look up its symbolism...and of course I couldn't pass up the opportunity to create an inspirational photo!
Complete meaning: 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
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”.
