The ladybug, which is also known as a ladybird, is a symbol of good luck. The reason is largely rooted in pragmatism, not superstition. Ladybugs prey on pests like: aphids, spider mites, and other bugs that show up to destroy our plants and gardens. The ladybug is, herself, a natural bug repellant.
Due to the help that they have given us in our quest to build wealth, ladybugs have garnered a pretty sterling reputation. Since they are a good luck charm, we naturally associate them with keeping bad fortune and misfortune at bay.
Perhaps part of the reason is psychological. The presence of a ladybug could make an individual feel that they are lucky; and this in turn allows them to attract all the luck in the world. When a ladybird appears in our life, it offers us encouragement to keep working hard at our dreams as we will soon find the happiness that we seek.
If we want to be happy, we need to have a positive mindset and always expect good results for the effort that we put it. We shouldn’t allow negativity to sabotage us or our plans, especially if we have worked hard to get someplace. We must believe that we will receive the fruits of our labour. This positive approach to life will naturally attract blessings in abundance.
Ladybugs are known for their striking appearance. It reminds us to be beautiful both on the inside and the outside. How many times have we met people who seem wonderful on the surface only to realise that things are not what they seem?
The truth is, we do not have to sacrifice one for the other. A truly beautiful person is not only attractive in appearance, but also radiates an inner light for the world to see.
The ladybug is a particular type of beetle known as the Coccinellidae beetle. To the Ancient Egyptians, the kheper scarab beetle was a symbol of the soul. The scarab symbolically represented the divine manifestation of the morning sun.
It heralded a turning point when light returned after a period of darkness. In contemporary vernacular, we would say that the scarab represented the light that emerged at the end of the tunnel.
It seemed, then, that good fortune was finally in our favour.
