Moth Power Animal Symbol Of Transformation

By Ina Woolcott

Moth’s gifts include the power of the whirlwind, ease of movement in darkness/shadow, transformation/metamorphosis, ability to confuse enemies, ability to find light in darkness, hearing spoken and unspoken messages.

Moths reside in all but polar regions. Their bodies, legs and wings are covered with numerous touch hairs that come off if the moth is touched – they are highly sensitive to touch. They can feel, smell, taste and tell the temperature with their feathery antennae, with the tiny pegs on them acting as receptors. The moth views everything clearly. Moth people usually have strong psychic and healing abilities and must watch out not to pick up others problems and carry them around in their energy fields, or confusion or irritability may occur.

Metamorphosis is part of moths magic – the egg stage is symbolic of the birth of an idea, the larvae stage is the foundation, the chrysalis stage is symbolic of the manifestation, and the growing of wings symbolises taking flight and exploring uncharted territory.

An interesting trait of the moth is hiow they use their wings. A resting moth either wraps its wings around itself, holds them extended to the side or folds the wings up. This implies a basic nurturing property and moth people may find themselves in the role of care giver.

With their acute hearing – their hearing organs are located on their legs, giving them the ability to sense vibrations around them – the moth is able to detect ultra sound. Pay attention to what is being spoken and also the unspoken, underlying messages in what is heard. Observe the body language of those around you and those you come in contact with if this is yoru power animal. Also pay attention to your sensitivity to others, the lacking side of it or the over side of it. Perhaps you are in a situation that needs to be rethought. Are you being honest to yourself and others?

The moth is an optimist and opportunist with countless transformative properties. From them we learn how to expand and perfect our inherent psiychic abilities, and how to let go of negative energies and unwelcome influences, helping us move into our personl power and happiness.

  1. Thank you very much for this information. You could say I’m beginning my path in learning how to be a Shaman and the moth has become profound in the same day I reached this decision. On my way home from friends I’ve had two moths remain on my car for most og the trip, one remaining along the door, the other against my window. After about twenty minutes it was clearly there for some reason and decided to open my window. I outstretched my hand and it gladly traveled onto me where it rest for another five minutes before deciding to leave. I don’t entirely understand what happened but now I feel profoundly connected to them.

  2. In January, a little white moth flew into my life. I was washing my sink when I noticed it hiding behind the curtains of the window above my sink. It flew out and landed on my hand.

    Since then, I have considered it a very powerful messenger and animal guide associated with one of medicines.

    When in Peru, I forgot one of my protective medicines in my hotel room. I looked up during the meeting I was attending, and there above me was a giant black moth. I couldn’t help by feel like it was moth’s way of telling me that it was watching out for me, even without my medicine on my physical body.

    I find that moth often comes into my life to warn me about people or places. If I see a moth somewhere, I go in with caution or avoid the place altogether; If I see a moth around someone, I know to steer clear of them. It shows me where the energy is toxic. It shows me where I need to protect myself energetically.
