Grasshopper Locust Power Animal Symbol Of Leaping Forward

By Ina Woolcott

Grasshoppers/Locusts medicine includes jumping across space and time, astral travel, new leaps forward/leaps of faith/jumping without knowing where you will land, leaping over obstacles, ability to change careers quickly.

There are 10,000 or so species of grasshopper, they are cold blooded as all insects are and are more mobile when it is warmer. Each species has their own unique song. However, only the males are able to sing with a few exceptions – the males sing to compete for female attention. The power of sound and song is part of grasshoppers medicine. It is an ancient method to use song to alter ones consciousness and communicate with animals and spirits. There are some native amwrican songs that date back 20,000 years. If grasshopper has leapt into your life, maybe you need to recognise where you come from, to go back to your roots and to honour your ancestors.

Grasshopper is the Chinese symbol of good luck and abundance. Anyone with this power animal has been given the ability to take chances – to act on a whim and jump right in. For them things may not progress step by step as they do for other people progress – but rather extremely fast. When taking that leap simply trust your own instincts on when to make the leaps. Listening to your inner voice and responding to it will lead you to positive outcomes. Don’t be afraid to make that leap, remembering all the while that Grasshopper’s only ever jump forwards and never backwards!

The short horned grasshopper is related to the locust, and the grasshopper locust is linked to astral travel, being able to leap to another reality where the real enigmas of life are. If the grasshopper-locust leaps into your life, then you are being asked to take a leap of faith, to do something without fear – this will generally be something that you have avoided doing and is often linked to a change in direction on a grander scale – be it a relationship, career or change in self. You will have the wisdom needed to get passed obstacles in an efficient manner. Generally outcomes will be favourable.

Grasshoppers are usually peaceful, however in times of overcrowding or food shortages, they turn into the much feared locusts who in the blink of an eye can strip a farm or forest. They turn almost black so as to take in more sunlight which fuels their swarming by giving extra heat and energy. They do this until they find somewhere with enough food, enough of them die/are killed to control the population. Remember: the fruits of the earth are for all to enjoy and there is plenty for all if used in a sacred way. People sometimes forget this sacred balance and take more than needed – this may also be an indication of people taking from you. Do others claim too much of your time and energy? Do they try and make you take responsibility for their actions? Ask yourself these questions, remembering that the going only gets tough when we refuse change.

    1. A locust just landed on me, then flew off and back onto me. This blows my mind. Thank you universe I receive your message loud and clear ??❤️

    2. I saw a grasshopper above my front door inside my house while I was having dinner with my daughter n some friends. I told all of them they are good luck so we didn’t bother it. Later that night before I went to bed the grasshopper was in the hallway in front of my bedroom door. I saw it there when my lil dog barked at it. I don’t know what happened it. The next morning didn’t see it. Yes going thrue alot of changes and this about the grasshopper meaning good luck was much needed. Is the good luck to all who saw the grasshopper inside my house or just who lives at my house?

          1. Wondering the same thing, its always difficult to find symbols for dying animals and insects. So the obvious would be the opposite.

    3. WOW. I was taking a walk in my neighborhood and a locust landed on my forearm then jumped off very rapidly, like flying or leaping.
      I feel a big change coming my way, that spiritual phenomenon must have been confirmation!!!
      Thank you

  4. I went on an adventure I knew nothing about and was very disappointed when I got there and turned around and left. A grasshopper stayed on my windshield for about 2 hrs as I drove down this gravel road. I prayed for the safety of myself and my car and I felt very protected and safe with the grasshopper with me. Thank u for the meaning of grasshoppers because it fit me so perfectly.

    1. I saw it when I was watering my plants but I kill it because I didn’t know the meaning of it I am so sorry.

  5. One was on me this morning and saw another one on a window in an 11th floor. The significance you are giving totally fits my life since I just left my job and don’t know exactly where I’m going. I Will trust thenuniverse and let it take me to our next destination! I can’t wait to see where this takes me. Thanks for the information.

    1. Donald Trump’s Power Animal is Grasshopper? Really..?Humph.. I’ve heard him speak enough times to believe it he’s an Ass!

  6. I am embarking on a life changing voyage of epic proportion. I have faith in what I’m doing now. Thank you for posting 🙂

  7. Thanks so much, this was really useful. I had to look up the meaning from seeing a massive Grasshopper in the kitchen last night getting comfy on some paper roses in a vase at the window. Given the unusual time of year to see them and that I moved in the house only last month, I saw it as a possible sign for the future – good or bad but now I am comforted to take any leaps of faith ahead.


  8. Thank you very much for the Spiritual insight into the grasshopper. When my grasshopper appeared I was feeling very insecure and confused as to how to move forward with my job, relationship and career/school. Now I am empowered to move forward with my world.

  9. I had that scripture from Joel on my mind this morning, sort of like a mantra so I came to see what the spiritual symbolism of locust might be (as in God will restore the years the locust hath eaten) and I really appreciate the clear and significant information here. It was a blessing to me this morning. Thank you. I’ve often noticed the synchronicity between teachings of Christian, Native American and other paths of spirituality. More Truth is present than the differences that seem to divide walks of faith.

  10. Hey I saw a brown grasshopper/locust today I was busy at work than I saw it on the front next to me what does it mean?

  11. What does it mean when you see a baby grasshopper, fail to recognize it and kill it out of fear that it was a spider or scorpion. Which even that was weird for me because I usually save spiders and scorpions, this time I just had a knee jerk reaction to protect the pets I am in charge of watching for the weekend. Later I realized it was a sweet little grasshopper and felt horrible. Wondering what this means more metaphorically and spiritually for me. Am I afraid of my own power? My own good fortune, luck, and abundance?

  12. You have given me something to really think about. You have told me something I didn’t know about. I hope this to be the hell my life has been to really truly be done with it and my life has been put on a path of a good life and good luck is going to be mine and peace and happiness for the rest of my days to come. …Thanks

  14. For a little over a week I have been seeing grasshoppers on the ceiling of my porch, my mom porch & on my car. I even stopped to pick up a salad the other day and I looked back and there was a grasshopper sitting on the edge of my back car window. I have to admit I freaked out the first time I saw them & I killed one unfortunately. But then the next day there were two and so on. This morning I awoke to no grasshoppers made a quick errand came back two more on my ceiling. This time I just took time to look at & appreciate them. Can someone elaborate the meaning of all the interactions please & thank you?

  15. My son made it home from school about 2:45p.m. and noticed that there were three piles of grasshoppers in front our door! After reaching this I am excited of what is to come! Thank you for the information!!!

  16. I just lost my job last friday. I’ve been having a lot of problems at this particular position, over working me putting me on crazy hours and I’ve been experiencing a lot of health problems because of the job. I interviewed at other position but just decided to stay because I planned to start school. They ended firing me no warning just told me I hadn’t handled a situation well with a customer. I live in a third floor apartment. In my window the next day was a bright green grasshopper. I don’t know how he got there and I’ve never seen one that close. So of course I had to look it up it isn’t everyday you see one of these amazing creatures. Thank you for the insite.

  29. This morning I went out to the front porch to wipe off water from my chairs and a old 60’s black with flowers, TV table. Just before I wiped off the TV table, I noticed 3 tiny baby grasshoppers of varing sizes all laying dead. It made me sad to see them dead, but can’t figure out how all 3 got there and dead. I love grasshoppers, not sure what it means.

  30. I found one right on my porch this morning. At first, I wanted to chase it but then changed my mind. Came online to look up what it meant seeing one and here we are. Thank you for shedding more light on this.
