You might be aware by now that there are a lot of lucky symbols in the eastern culture, but do you know that the western also has their own set? They include horseshoe, lucky clover and many more. In this article, we will cover another lucky symbol – Ladybug and its symbolism.

Ladybugs or ladybirds?

You might be confused, which is the correct name. Both names are correct and are used differently in the various continents, for example, in Europe, the term ladybird is used while ladybug is used in the United States.

Ladybug symbolism – Does it bring good luck?

Ladybugs are believed by many people in the world to be the symbol of good luck. There is a common belief that if a ladybug lands on you, remember to count the numbers of spots it has. It represents the number of months that you will enjoy good luck. Some even said that the stronger the color of the ladybug, the better luck it brings.

Some believed that once you got hold of a ladybird, make a wish and it will come true.

What does it mean if I dream of ladybird?

Dreams usually have a hidden meaning behind it, and people like to read dreams to foretell the upcoming happening. If you dream of just a single flying ladybird, it shows that good luck is coming.

However, if your dream comprises many ladybugs, it reflects your current situation. It means that you have a lot of things in your minds that cause stress in your life, so it is good to focus and resolve one by one.

What happens if I kill one?

It is also a big taboo to kill it, as it will bring you bad luck instead.

What does it mean when a ladybug has no spots?

There is folktale that if you meet such ladybug that has landed on you, it is a sign that you are going to meet your true love. 

After knowing the ladybug symbolism, embrace it and enjoy the good luck.
