Spirit Animal Totems


What has been hidden from you will now be revealed. Pay attention!

If Moth has flown across your path;

Moth is the master of disguise and is reminding you to be aware that you could be hiding from yourself. Are you using your emotions to keep yourself hidden from others? Is it time that you transform your emotional energy away from drama and into something closer to your heart? Have faith in your journey and trust that although things seem to be complicated right now – you will eventually see the light. Use your heart to guide you.

If Moth is your Animal Totem;

You are the most optimistic of souls! You can find the silver lining in every crisis, the light in any darkness and the love in any frustration. Your ability to seek out the positive in any situation makes you a good listener for your peers, a great peer counselor and advice giver, as well as highly sought after as a friend. You are popular, generous with your attention and understand the subtleties of the way the universe works around you. You have a gift for attracting what you need in life and have very little difficulty moving through life changes and transformations. You find joy in rituals and dance. You also know how to use your intuition and have a great deal of psychic awareness.

If Moth has come into your Dream;

If Moth has flown into your dream it is generally a notice for you to pay attention to the minor details and take care not to overlook things. It may also be suggesting that some unseen irritation may not surface until it is too late. Alternatively the Moth could symbolize your weaknesses, character flaws and the fragile state you are currently in. It is putting you on notice that you need to step back and take time to heal before moving forward.

  • I went outside breifly, early morning before getting the household up and ready for thier days whatnots. A single white moth wing slowly floated down and Landed in front of me. Just the wing. Any ideas?
    Thank you kindly,

  • Im very surprised from what im reading, Ive always considered myself spirtiual and do Believe in God. This was super bizarre, Tonight My Mother and I began to argue and it got so loud i didnt know what to do, I told her i was taking a walk, I walked to a local bar and sat in a chair out front. Nobody was outside and I overheard an acquaintance from my town while walking out utter “Ive got to go, My Father passed away a couple weeks ago, you know how it is”. Someone in my local meetings passed away a few nights ago from a drug overdose as well. I couldn’t understand why this tiny still white moth caught my attention. I was pist minutes before but this Moth meant something to me. Any idea?

  • Tonight as I was falling asleep watching tv i dreamed I saw a wingless fat white moth on the tv. I thought I would get a fly swat and kill it but about the time I got the fly swat it flew over to the floor right beside the chair I was sitting in. I was relieved so I could kill it. I hit it once but it was too big to kill so i decided to pick it up with the fly swat and carry it outside. When I picked it up it grew long black legs and started crawling up the fly swat toward my hand. I was frozen in fear and could not move. It got to my hand and I thought it was going to bite me but it did not. At the moment with all of my strength I knocked it off my hand. Then I woke up. I know this means something but do not understand.

  • Hello, I have had a recent dream the night of my break up with my partner, it involved myself wiping dozens of little moths from my eyes, i have since tried to research what it means as dreams do interest me and i believe that they all have meaning.
    If there is anyone that can give me insight on what they believe it means would be great.

  • a Moth A Few Seconds Ago Landed On My Leg Then Arm And Crawled Up My Arm Sitting On My Hand. I Didn’t Move Till It Flew Away. I Didn’t Know What To DO Exactly So I Fled Into My House

  • When I was hanging out the washing yesterday, a yellow moth tried desperately to get through the windows,but with the netting it couldnt go anywhere. It kept trying and trying. Today, a yellow moth is inside the apartment. It is completly still, just staying on the wall. I definitely think it has some meaning.

    A couple of weeks ago when i was again hanging the washing, a black and yellow butterfly kept fluttering around me. When I was out to take the clothes in it was there again, fluttering. And I would see it through the kitchen window…constantly fluttering.. and theres no flowers right there for it to feed on, so i believe it was a message too..?

  • I had a dream in which I was in bed feeling weak as if life was being sucked out of me when I looker to my back a big as moth was on my back sucking the blood out of my skin!!!! Super freaky what does that mean?

  • I had a dream in which my husband and I were at some kind of party at night In a romantic park like setting. outside under the trees we were walking together and he held me from behind, there were brightly colored moths floating above us. He held my wrists from behind me, raised my arms and told me to catch one that it would bring us good luck. Instead I caught 2 (bright blue and bright orange) and felt very relieved and then I woke up.

    • My dream dictionary states that a moth dream denotes a love affair where the dreamer will experience betrayal. It says this is part of gypsy interpretation. Blue is the color of hope and orange the color of danger

  • I had a large moth in my room for at least 3 days then 5 days later my cat passed away. I have heard some coloured moths can symbolise death. I don’t know if it has anything to do with the death of my cat but yeah reply what you think :sad:

  • I have had 3 different moths land one at a time on my phone tonight . hmmmmm I’ll keep you posted x

  • first of forgive the spelling and grammer. i dont know if my story has a real meaning or was ment to mean anything but this is how it goes. about 4 months ago i opened a small store on a reservation and it was new to me even the reserve haha. im ojibway and i had to move from where i was to a mohawk reserve. well its off topic but it was sort of overwelming for me. a month into the opening of the store i noticed this giant moth laying on my porch it was injured seemed to have hit the store and stunned itself. an employee luaghed at its size and left it at that after he and i had taken a picture. soon after i went inside and found somthing to put the moth on so i could move it out of harms way and i put him in a tree i figured that would be best.. and never thought back till today when an older lady came in and told me a story about a spirit that could be tied to a moth and light. it made me think of this but i never noticed a light nor did i ever question it being a spirit all i know is i never saw it again. and that i found my place amoung the people here and yeah… like a second home or a third lol

  • My step mother who raised me just past away. She was very much into the lord. We had a conversation about after life. She said there wasn’t one. Are soul goes to god. Well…i’m a care taker for a large complex. Every time i look up or down. There has been a moth. Larger one. It never moves. It just looks at me. While im on a ladder cleaning a ceiling fan it will be on my right. Facing me. I have always had animals follow me. I am a out going person and have been thru a lot. Ive never let it get the best of me. My theory is if I’m having a bad day. Im going to try to make someone. Elses day as wonderful as i can make it!

  • Hi! Throughout my life I really couldn’t stand moths, and didn’t like spiders. In 2012 I lost my only son, and since then spiders (which he had a phobia about, and hated) and moths have become incredibly beautiful to me. They are where-ever I go, and I rescue them where-ever I can. It feels as if they are trying to tell me something that I don’t get, as they have persisted (and I love their presence). I have a tiger totem that appears when-ever I am sad, as I have dealt with a lot of hurt and anger, which subsides so quickly when the tiger is around. I those moments, (normally in the bath) spiders and moths seem to rush towards me. What am I missing?

    • Perhaps you are not living up to your full potential ? Sometimes when tragedy strikes our grief becomes the all important thing in our life. It’s as if we are afraid to let go of our grief for fear of forgetting or losing the person all over again. We begin to identify ourselves as a greif stricken person and just stay there – stuck.

    • I don’t think you’re missing anything. I think it’s just a beautiful gift from your son. Thank goodness you’re open enough to notice and hear.

      If you still really feel like you’re not understanding something, maybe ask them? I’m often so surprised at the answers I receive when I remember to ask.

      Blessings. X

      • So, so true Kate. That is so typical Vincent. That’s what I missed; that he was sending me beauty and love, and I tried to look too deep. Thanx a lot!

    • I don’t like either but I saw a moth today and I’m sure it was a sign. I have a psychic ability and just before I saw it I was picking up strong vibes from a spirit at my house. The vibes are telling me not to do something and the moth, I believe was just an added sign to listen to my intuition and stay away from negative and destructive influences. Life is amazing. The more you love it, the more your life starts to love you back. You get what you give. The Law Of Attraction is a law! It can be a gift or a curse, $o use it wisely. Use it to only attract the finest things in life.

  • As I got off the train and was walking up the stairs I saw a moth on the step as I walked further another moth was on the floor but the most beautiful moth one I have never come across before … What could this mean?

  • Hi , ok well my husband and i are on our honeymoon and we were coming back to our room and there was a giant brown moth over the key pad to our door . We left several hours again and then. Noticed the moth in the window of our room . i have no clue how it got in the balcony door is open now and it wont fly out . What is going on with this moth ????

  • As I was letting my dogs out I saw a big brown moth on the porch. I am having gastric surgery in a few days and I am wondering if the moth is trying to tell me something. Transformation maybe?

    • Hello Cyndi: The Moth is letting you know that there is more to healing than simple surgery. The fact that you are having gastric surgery tells me that you have to have a good look at the way you digest the events around you. There are some aspects of your life that are just hard to swallow. To fully heal you must heal those aspects as well.

  • Hello there. My name is Jennifer and a huge moth hung around my apartment door for days. When I first saw it, I was startled but then I got so happy..I even talked to the Moth saying, “Hey Dad”!. I lost my Father in 2012 and ever since then I just associated him with butterflies and beautiful moths. I can go on and on about how things in my life right now aren’t so easy or what I want it to be but I would just like to know what you think. Thanks!

    • Hello Jennifer: Your Moth is letting you know that you must embrace who you are right now and in this moment. You are unique and special – in spite of what others say and of what you believe yourself to be. Love yourself. Your father is always with you.

  • I had a moth fly by me on a field watching my bf football game, thought no big deal. That was yesterday afternoon. We get home one is inside the house and flies right in front of me. This morning when I get to work there is one inside my car with me. What does this mean or could mean?

    • Hello Leni: Pay special attention to the quotation box at the top of the page. The message will be specific to you. Also take note that the color of the Moth has to do with the earth, grounding and being honest with yourself.

  • Tonight I was drawing a bath and there’s always moths in our shower but this one wouldn’t leave and when I got in it landed on my stomach I had to shoo it out and after my bath another bigger moth flew in my hair right by my ear and wouldn’t get out of my hair I to shake it out moths have never caught my attention like this what could it mean?

    • Hello Nicole: Pay attention to the quotation box when you return to this page and make sure you follow through on the message.

  • I was on a teleconference for women who are ready to step into their greatness. As I was contemplating asking a question (that I felt I already knew the answer to) about how do I know when I’m where I’m supposed to be or if I should be doing more, a moth flew to its usual spot outside my kitchen window. It was moving upward as if it was telling me that I was moving right along. This same moth has visited me on 3 other occasions- usually at the same window in the kitchen and once in my master bathroom. I love how God uses his creations to communicate with us.

  • Hi I saw a white moth outside my door today as I was leaving my house. I’m wondering if this is warning me of sickness or death of a loved one? Please help, I’m kinda worried !

    • Hello Eileen: Moth is a little more personal than that. The message is that you need to get to know yourself a little better. Take the time to explore and focus on yourself for a while instead of believing everything others have to say about you. Once you do this you will begin to discover the unique and beautiful light that shines within.

  • Wow, this is very interesting. Last night, my boyfriend and I were leaving the new house we’re moving into to go run an stand. I saw the most enormous moth sitting on the mailbox just before I closed the front door. Is it a sign of transformation into this new house and chapter together?

    • Hello Frankie: next time you come to this page – pay attention to the message in the quotation box. This will be the message that Moth had for you.

  • I’ve been looking up symbolism for moths for a long, long time. I’m constantly surrounded by them-At home, at work, everywhere! I’m not just surrounded by them but they frequently just land on me and hang out for long periods of time. My friends have even started to referring to me as the Moth Queen. I’ve got one on me right now and he’s been there for a good ten minutes so far. I know people really dislike moths but I feel really strongly connected to them ;u;

  • I had been seeing this pretty orange moth with what looked to be white flowers on it. Almost everyday, so decided to look and see how about it as a totem and as I scrolled down I noticed a picture of the very same moth a Bella Moth. I conclude that I was brought here for a reason!

  • :?: For almost 2 weeks now I have been seeing moths everywhere around me. Even this week and the end of last week I have them in my car…everyday! I’ve been asking myself if I am being patient enough in my relationship or too patient. Could this be a sign?

    • Hello Rachel: The moths are letting you know that you are important too. You need to be able to address your feeling, and expectations within any relationship. If the one you are hoping to form a lasting relationship with is unable to share on those terms then you should perhaps honor yourself by finding someone who can be there for you as well. You must be willing to recieve as well as give. Relationships go two ways.

  • Well i’ve been praying and becoming more spiritually aware and stronger. I’m currently separated from my wife and I had a lot of changing to do within myself. I have changed and i’m continuing on my journey to be a better man. Lately I’ve been seeing certain signs and animals. I’ve been seeing a whole bunch of butterflies. 2 were yellow, a black one and an orange and black one. I seen a dove flying in the middle of the sky stationary and even seen 3 bats last night while I was sitting outside yesterday. I seen a moth and right before I went to bed I seen a fly that was buzzing so loud that I couldn’t ignore it. I’m not too sure what they all mean to my life but I always feel peace inside when I see them.

  • A few months a go I had been depressed and angry with things and people beyond my control. I usually am a very hopeful person but I felt so exhausted with loving so hard and trying so hard to be optimistic when I was surrounded with people who couldn’t empathise with each other. One day my family was fighting so I went outside to get away. I was jumping on the trampoline and I don’t really know why but I threw a stone at the tree next to me and a little white and brown speckled moth landed on the trampoline floor. I was certain that the moth was dead and I suddenly felt so incredibly sad and I started to cry. I stroked the wings of the moth and his body and it didn’t move at all. I then used a leaf to nudge the moth into my palm, I didn’t really know what I was going to do but it felt really important. As I balanced the moth on my hand I stood up and watched, to my surprise, the moth fly away into the distance. I was quite taken a back as I had assumed the moth was dead, but also as the moth had flown so much higher than I had ever seen before. Recently I have been feeling a lot better and happier. I sometimes encounter moths trying to get through windows and I always try to open windows to let them through. Do you think that the moth could be my animal totem? Thank you :)

    • Hello Hattie: Different animals will appear with their energy to help you through different periods of your life (animal messengers). Some animals you will feel an affinity for throughout your life (totem). If you feel you have a life long affinity toward the moth then yes – this is your animal totem. Regardless of whether the Moth is your Totem or messenger make sure you pay attention to the quotation box for your message.

  • Hi Had to work today on a Sunday my daughter an I have discovered a moth on my window screen that is right next to my entrance door of my home. I am going through a big crisis right now and was wondering if this how I am being told all will be just fine. Please tell.

    • Hi Gladys: When land on any of these spirit animal pages pay special attention to the quotation box as the message will be specific to you.

      -Moth” Let go of trying to resolve and control the outcome and the whole thing will resolve itself.

  • Hello, I visited a botanical garden the other day and had a beautiful experience of hundreds of moths flyng all around. this morning, I walked down the steps of the apartment, and right at the bottom directly in my path is a pretty bis fuzzy moth, red body. I didn’t want him to get hurt, so I put my hand next to him and he crawled on to it. I checked him out, took a couple pics, and put him on a tree off the ground. this is approximately 9:15 AM.

    any thoughts…?

    • Hello Jennifer: You are hiding some hidden talents within yourself. You need to explore the things that currently interest you in order to bring them to the surface.

  • Hello
    A strange thing happened to me a few days ago that has left me wondering. My lady friend (love interest) had a silly argument over a trivial matter. She is Vietnemese. She called me the next day and said we have to talk. I met her and she said that a man came to her in her dreams the previous evening and was angry that she talked to me so harshly during the argument. When she explained to him that she said what she said because she loves me so much and only wants good to happen. She told him other things that she is scared about me (health wise) He then began to cry. He then said Do you know who I am? She replied NO. He said I am Stans Dad.

    When I took her back to her place after our talk. When I went into the kitchen there was a white moth near the fridge on the wall. I tried to catch the moth to free it outside. It went behind the fridge so I sat down at the table about ten feet away. My Girlfriend said Do you know who that was it was your father. Then suddenly the white moth flew slowly straight to me and landed on the table leg and allowed me to pick it up. I then freed the moth outside. I am very taken back about this and wonder what you might have to say.

    • Hi Stan: Your lady friend is right. That was your father trying to reach out from the other side and the Moth confirmed it. You should listen to your lady friend with regards to your health issues and follow through on them.

  • Hey there.
    The Moth has appeared me in a vision where i was transforming…
    it was white with a sort of white power all over it…what it could it mean?

  • Moths are around my house a lot. We except them a lot around us as a sign of enlightenment. Earlier this week a moth ran directly into my eye. I am curious of any opinions. Please and thank you

    • Hi Evelyn: There is something in your life that you have to look at from the other persons point of view. You need to be accepting of their beliefs in this matter as there is no right or wrong. It just is.

  • Hello. <3
    I had an orange and black moth land on me while reading on the front porch the other day. The next day, several tiny black moths were flying over my head in the shower. The very next day, I find out I'm pregnant. :)
    Then again, I just stepped into the shower to see a beautiful brown moth on the ceiling.
    What particular message might they be bringing me?

  • I am going through a terribly painful phase in my relationship. Another sleepless night. And then, just now, this morning, around 5 am, just as the light is beginning to bring the night to an end, I looked over and there was a slightly shiny, taupe-y coloured moth sitting quietly with its wings folded on the Kleenex on my bedside table. I knew it must be a sign, but of what exactly? I picked up the Kleenex very carefully and went downstairs and let the moth out the front door; it didn’t budge or try to fly away until I shook it gently off.the Kleenex outside and set it free. What does this mean, the appearance of the moth, at just this moment in this quiet, still way, please?

    • Hi Luna: The moth is letting you know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. For every new beginning there is an end to an “old” new beginning. Follow the lead of the Angels and try to move forward with love, acceptance and forgiveness for all involved.

  • Hi Jude: The Moths are trying to let you know that you have to stop doubting yourself. Believe in yourself and your capabilities. You can live your own dreams!

  • I know I have a leopard and a preying mantis as totems. That being said this past week day or night the moths are all over me. Fluttering their wings in my hair till my head tingles and fluttering their wings around my neck. I just sit still and allow it trying to listen.

    The description given if the moth enters my life is me to a t! Just can’t figure the why or significance to it.

  • Hello, a moth has flown in my path 3x in the last three weeks. Randomly on the street or having dinner in restaurants. What might that be or mean?

    • Moth can have several different messages. Come back to this page and pay close attention to the message in the quotation box at the top of the page. There are at least five different messages that can appear here from Moth. The message that comes up for you in particular will send you in the right direction.
