A ladybug landed on my shoulder/collarbone area
So they other day I was walking through downtown, near a major park. A ladybug flew onto my left collarbone area, when I was crossing a major street. I sensed a presence (like of a person) and then saw it as I arrived on the sidewalk.
I got him/her onto my finger and planned to cross the street to release her/him into the park but just as the light changed, it flew away.
I NEVER see ladybugs. I think the last time I handled a ladybug I was in the 5th grade.
What do we make of ladybugs?
They are red and black which for me suggests Devi. I was wearing a black shirt. I think it was ironic it flew away right as I could start walking across the street to release it.
I'm interested in your perspectives! Let me know what your take is.
The ladybug is generally seen as a omen of luck, at least in my culture, norhtern Europe. Sweetness and sturdyness, it knows how to protect itself. Innocence and playfulness - althoug it´s a cruel bug eater, so one should not be fooled believing it doesn´t have a cruel side. Timing - just as the luck comes and goes as it wants to, so does the Ladybug, just as in your omen. As Ernst says: it´s good to pay attention to the details when a message reaches us. What street were you crossing? What side of your body did it sit on, etc?
A person close to me has it, or at least had as a child, as her power animal, so I have a ladybug on my altar. Always. In company with the hedgehog, for her they were related when she was a small; I guess that´s apersonal and not general connection.
Lada swears that ladybugs represent marriage and that right after a ladybug omen she was proposed to. So let us know if that happens!
