Dragonfly symbolism


dragonfly4aThis is a fantastic blog by Jennifer Moore on the magickal symbolism of dragonflies. Yesterday, the first full day actually in Alaska, as our journey was detoured/delayed a day due to weather, but ultimately energetic callings where I was needed, I was surrounded by giant dragonflies at the lake here.

The photos you see in my share, are of one of the dragonflies, and of the pair that were in a dance, that I rendezvous’d with yesterday.

These beautiful, giant dragonflies with wingspan of 4-5 inches were flying around me on the dock and two seemed to be in a mating dance.dragonflies2

The dragonflies continued to fly at me while out on the row boat as well, while exploring beaver lodges and listening to the haunting loons.dragonfly

Jennifer’s share so beautifully expounds on these magickal creatures that are both of the air – symbolizing change – and water – the subconscious, dreaming mind, and mutable nature. When they skitter across the water they demonstrate deeper thoughts surfacing and of our being mindful of our wishes we intend.

These nymph creatures are simply enchanting in every way and everything they are about, as shared in Jennifer’s article, is so perfect in symbolism right now for me.

Last night, the first night here in Talkeetna, as the eerie, but beautiful, calls of the loons echoed across the lake, I dreamed of an adolescent moose I was communicating with on a path in the forest. But that’s a “moose” of another story. 😉

Magick is abound and the creatures of Alaska are making me feel welcome already. I look forward to their continued wisdom and messages.

I’ve been drawn to dragonflies for some time now, perhaps because I love rivers and lakes and these peaceful creatures are mesmerizing as they flit and skimmer across the water.   They have brought me great peace, and even their life spans symbolize change and transformation.   The first year or more of their lives, they live in the water as nymphs.  When they metamorphose into the flying creatures we recognize as dragonflies, they live only a few weeks.  I like to compare this pattern to a person who has spent her whole life working her way to her truest path and then finally has the strength and means to express her purest nature.   Even if for a short while, this person will flit and skim across the days of her life, inspiring those around her to live joyfully, as well.

  1. Tania, thank you for this post sweet friend. I had seen it when you first posted it but hadn’t had a chance to read it. Then I was emailed this picture below that my sister sent me who lives in Laguna Niguel. I just received it, it was taken in their backyard when they were cleaning it up this past weekend. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it. It made me think of your post again and I am going to read it, along with sending it to my sister. Love the synchronicities, AGAIN.
