When I was in New Zealand last December I ended up with a 24-hour bug. It was terrible, I lived in the bathroom all night (sorry TMI). What I found fascinating was that I was not alone. I beautiful light grey moth sat by my side the whole night. When my legs were turned to the left, the moth was also facing left (same with when my legs were facing right). Since then, I find myself noticing how many times moths love to be near me. I am not bothered by them, I talk to them and they simple shoo away or just hover nearby.
I have decided that the Moth is my spirit animal.
As a creature of the night, and by her navigational devices, we see the moth is highly influenced by the power of the moon. This aspect ties in with animal symbolism of intuition, and psychic awareness. A master of disguise, the moth can blend in to the point of invisibility. This is a metaphor for us to use our environment to our advantage, blend in when necessary, adjust and adapt when the situation requires it. Symbolic Moth Meanings: Faith, Attract, Subtlety, Intuition, Concealment, Vulnerability, Determination
All of these qualities resonate with me, especially realizing since I was young, I have been a Chameleon. I can blend in to the point of invisibility, and adapt & adjust when the situation requires it. It’s so amazing to discover parts of myself that have been in plain sight yet I haven’t really recognized until now; until creating a collages (in a leadership program) and really looking in. The intuition and determination and faith meanings most definitely resonate with me as well.
