Ladybug’s medicine includes carrying the golden strand that leads to the centre of the universe, past lives, spiritual enlightenment, death and rebirth, renewal, regeneration, fearlessness, protection, good luck, wishes being fulfilled, protection.

The ladybug is small and brightly coloured, usually with black, yellow or red markings and belongs to the beetle family. They are to be found in nearly all climates and latitudes. The shell on the ladybugs back gives protection from predators, with their wings closing against their body’s to give protection to their soft underside. With their keen instincts the ladybugs feel vibrations through their legs, allowing them to sense the energy of what they touch, another form of protection. The ladybugs colouring also warns predators to stay away, and we should follow this example by sending out the same messages to our foes and woes. Also, like ladybug don’t be aggressive, yet defend yourself if needed.

Although the lady bug is a beetle, it is still liked by humans – their small size symbolises and gentle loving nature, and they give off an energy of being harmless. This shows us how to stop harming ourselves. Though small in size the ladybug is fearless. As fear cannot exist amongst joy, the ladybug brings a message of promise, for they get us back in touch with the joy of living – we must let go of our fears and go back to our roots, to love. We are also taught to restore our trust and faith in the universe, we have to get over ourselves, our egos, and allow life to take its course going with the flow.

The name ladybug has its roots in the middle ages, when it was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and called the beetle of our lady. This links it to spiritual idealism and religious devotion. Ladybug people frequently have past lives linked to religion or church – daily meditation is recommended.

In general ladybugs reproduce sexually, with the female laying eggs. Their life cycle is only about 4 weeks long, meaning that over a summer several generations are produced, linking the ladybug to the energies of regeneration and renewal. Their short life span teaches us not to worry, and to live life to the full and always in the now. Let go, let the universe and your inner voice guide you. People with this totem are generally family orientated, have strong morals and social values.

Adult ladybugs can eat thousands of aphids and other scale insects in their life time, and have long been regarded as a good omen by farmers and crop growers as these can be detrimental to crop production. However, due to its diet the ladybug often has parasites – a message to those with this power animal to look after their digestive system.

Ladybug showing up in ones life foretells a time of luck and protection, where wishes start to become actualised. The seasons of autumn and spring will be the most plentiful times for those with this power animal. Worries will quickly disperse when ladybug appears as they shield us from our aggravations, paving the way for new found happiness – aim high, you will get what you focus on. However, ladybug also cautions us not to force things or try to hard to fulfil your wishes, go with the flow and let things take their natural course. Your wishes will come true when they do – in their own time!

  1. I’ve been involved in the metaphysical arts for over 25 yrs. and recently had a wonderful ladybug experience I wanted to share: I was walking to a potential new employer’s store just to check them out and, unbeknownst to me, a ladybug alighted on my hair on the way over. When I got there, one of the current employees saw the ladybug and told me where it was. Of course, knowing the ladybug’s symbolism and spiritual assistance characteristics, that made me quite excited that this will be a good move to this employer should they select me. Pretty cool, eh?? I looked up your article on ladybugs and have it printed out and posted on my bathroom mirror. Blessed Be.

  2. I lived in a highrise building with my mother & 2 daughters on the 9th floor. There is a long story to this but ill tell it in short. Up to the happenings of my ladybug experience i had been unhappy inside somewhat and felt bitter or evil perhaps. Not to a point where id harm anyone, maybe by my hurtful words. But my mother had a dog that i really hated only because of how the dog acted and how dirty & smelly she could be. Anyways one day i kept finding a lady bug in our apartment, i picked it up & cruely flicked it out the window. This not only happened once but several times that i had found a ladybug in the home and flicked it out the blacony window. One day i had a ladybug crawling on my wrist and i finally told my mother about what keeps happening with the lady bug issue. I tell her i keep finding lady bugs this is so strange! She says maybe someone is trying to tell you something or a sign to change your ways?…that year my mom passed away from cancer in 2014 it was crazy because she went for a check up & the doctor said she had 6 months to a year to live. It was such a shock & 4 months later she had passed away…:( i repeatedly think about those lady bugs and feel guilty at the fact that i was so cruel to just flick them out the window. I have changed dramatically since then and ive been drawn alot closer to God . I feel a strong connection with him and the lady bugs. Lady bugs really are a sign and they are so Gentle & kind. Be nice to the ladybug the next time you see one because my mom was right. They really are a sign & symbol

  3. I have found tons of ladybugs all over my house. I’ll look down & see them at my feet. Some kind of message…

  4. I keep finding lady bugs all over my house. One day I joined some friends for lunch approx 20 miles from my home. I was sat down eating and a lady bug landed on my hand. It was so surprising because we were in a restaurant.
    At the moment I’m trying to get back to work after having a baby. Setting up a business can be hard. Perhaps the lady bug is telling me not to be discouraged and to keep believing work will come my way.
    Well I hope!

  5. It is no coincidence that I found this blog as an answer! Yesterday evening on my way back to home, I found a yellow-coloured ladybug on my coat sleeve. As I was trying to make meaning of this experience, I found your blog. And thank you so very much for sharing your words. It really helped me understand in this present journey.

  6. 13 days ago I had a gran mal seizure and after being rushed to hospital was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Needless to say, my perspective on life has drastically changed and I am now more than ever open to the energies and signs this universe has to offer.
    Today I went in for my pre-admittance meetings with my surgical team to have all my pre-surgery testing done. During my first test, bloodwork (with the needle in my arm I might add) my technician says to me, “I don’t mean to alarm you, but there is a ladybug in your beard.”
    My initial reaction was to knock it out of my mustache as I was now aware of its trajectory towards my right nostril. It fell to my lap where it remained on my shorts for the duration of the blood work and even while I got up to meet my mother (and show her my visitor). I’d also like to mention that my tumor is on my right frontal lobe… coincidence dear ladybug?
    I was well aware of the good luck aspect that ladybug represents; however I am now more than ever sure of the sign I received from the powers that be. The intense calm and centering I feel about my surgery tomorrow is hard to put to words. I want to take this moment to thank you for your article which has supplied more clarity and reassurance as I move forward in this healing journey.
    From my heart to yours, namaste.
