Meaning and Messages
In this case, Beetle symbolism is asking you to make changes in your life that do not necessarily comply with you being true to yourself. In other words, the Beetle meaning lets you know that you must evaluate the situation in its entirety so that you can find a way to compromise. The presence of this spirit animal means that change will come, whether you want it to or not!
Moreover, the Beetle meaning shows you that compromise is the only way to maintain your integrity and beliefs. More than likely, this entire predicament is related to an ongoing unresolved family situation. Unfortunately, it requires your participation even though you have been able to maintain some distance. Thus, the Beetle meaning insists that you must find a way to remove yourself from the drama. Only then can you be a harbor of sanity amid the insanity.
Alternatively, the Beetle symbolism gives you notice of favorable outcomes to the current difficulties you are now facing. Therefore, things are now rolling to a close. However, by maintaining your integrity, things will soon resolve.
Potato Beetle Symbolism
In general, the Potato Beetle symbolism is about self-nurturing, a staple diet, and self-love. Thus, this insect reminds you that you must maintain your health to keep going at the pace you are going. In other words, lose that weight, eat sensibly, and find ways to nurture yourself healthfully. Alternatively, the Potato Beetle meaning also reminds you that if you’ve been a bit down on yourself lately, you need to start using self-love affirmations. Also, take the time to go out and get that haircut, do a little shopping for a new outfit, and get your nails done. Rebuilding your self-esteem takes effort. You are worth it.
Dung Beetle Meaning
In this case, like the Seagull, the Dung Beetle symbolism is a reminder that there is an opportunity in everything. Even in your lowest moments, there are tidbits of information that are golden opportunities.
Alternatively, when you have many different ideas floating around in your mind and are unsure of which one to act on, take some time to write them all down. Then go about your day. Take one idea at a time as you do what you usually do and see if it fits. Be sure to take note of how you feel about each concept. Think about all of the pros and cons. Wear your idea for a few hours or the whole day. Then move onto the next one and repeat the process. There will be a clear winner. It will be the one you keep thinking of and the one that feels right to you. Thus the Dung Beetle meaning prompts you to weigh your ideas before acting on them to ensure they are right for you.
Jewel Beetle Symbolism
In general, when you encounter Jewel Beetle symbolism, it is a reminder that life is a series of unexpected moments of joy and beauty in the smallest of packages. Thus this insect teaches us to find beauty in everything. When we focus on this aspect of our lives, we will come home to the joy within us.
Alternatively, like the iridescent Hummingbird, the Jewel Beetle meaning is a reminder that all of your dreams are possible and that you can manifest them now.
Totem, Spirit Animal
People with the Beetle totem are compassionate and aware individuals with the gifts of clairvoyance and clairsentience. Like the Arabian Horse and the Giraffe, both of these gifts work unobtrusively within their instincts. They are always in the right place at the right time and know precisely how to get there. Folks with the Beetle totem never give up on a project. They always find a way to see things to a full resolution or completion. These people waste nothing, recycle obsessively, are frugal to a fault, and have a profound understanding of Mother Earth and her needs. Their life seems to be one of constant change. However, they always maintain their sense of integrity throughout all of this. People with this power animal can turn all things negative into positive. They also lean towards the sciences of botany, biology, and anthropology as career choices.
Potato Beetle Totem
People with the Potato Beetle as their totem are self-sufficient. They never rely on others and will never ask for help. They are very self-protective and will isolate themselves emotionally. Only when they start to expand outward into the world will some of these traits begin to change and morph into a more open and engaging personality. Folks with this bug as their spirit animal also tend to stay close to home, yet they find highly creative jobs that can have an impact worldwide. They have an inner wisdom that connects them to other worlds, and this shows in everything they do.
Scarab Beetle Totem
People with the Scarab Beetle totem have a secure connection with the sun. They are often sun worshippers and will follow the sun to warmer climates. They are wise beyond their years and have a very productive nature. These folks have excellent reasoning skills and are always in a state of transformation as they tear down and rebuild themselves. They can also find their way in the darkest of moments without too much trouble. People with this Scarab Beetle totem make excellent diplomats, religious leaders, and artists.
When you have a Scarab Beetle dream, it symbolizes your ability to survive, adapt, and change. Know that you are on the right path. It can also be symbolic of your anxieties about death and aging. Alternatively, this insect represents the sun, resurrection, and immortality.
When you have a Dung Beetle dream, it is an indication that you must look for all of the possible positive outcomes in your current situation rather than focusing on the negative. In other words, the things going on in your life currently are all about the new possibilities available to you.
When you have a Jewel Beetle dream, like the Ladybug and the Grasshopper, these insects bring an omen of happiness and good fortune. So be sure to focus on the beautiful things in your life for the next few days to speed their manifestation.
Beetle Dream Colors
When you have a red Beetle dream, it is all about learning and improving your game. Thus, they suggest that outdoor physical activities are needed and that you need to take on some new outdoor activities. But, unfortunately, they are also about addiction, to the detriment of your physical body. Yes, you can love a sport and focus on it, but you also need to vary your activities so that your body’s muscles don’t specialize. Therefore, as your physical fitness increases, you should add more exercise of a different nature to your program.
When you have a green Beetle dream, it is a reminder that you made a decision a little while ago but have not followed through on it. Therefore, it’s time to take action. Just get it done. When this insect has green stripes, it suggests that you are waffling on that decision and unsure of yourself. You need to go inward and see if that choice was right for you. If it doesn’t feel right, then table it. If your heart likes it, then get busy and follow through. Self-doubt about a decision is typical. You need to stay focused on your heart – and what it desires.
A black Beetle dream brings change and transformation. The next few days will be a bit chaotic in a positive way. Chaos accompanies complete metamorphosis as the new takes root and begins to grow. Once you integrate this change, things will settle down.

Hope someone here will have a detailed, honest interpretation of this: I dreamt of a bug shaped like a rhinoceros beetle, but it had the markings and colors of a red ladybug. Any possible, genuine ideas on the meaning of such an odd mix?
I just came on here because a beetle just as you describe just fell from the sky, landed in front of me on its back, and I helped it turn over. It was just like a ladybug.. but a super shiny massive beetle….
I wish you had a meaning for a gold beetle!
I thank God for You. love&Light.
This afternoon after spending time at the clubhouse pool, my dad who was waiting for my sister and I to leave was sitting outside the gated area and noticed a palm-sized scarab-like beetle crawling on the pavement and it was literally directly underneath his chair when we approached and he pointed it out to me. For unknown reasons (I have never liked touching insects like this before) I felt inspired to reach down and gently pick it up by the sides (very strong and firm). I then placed him in the palm of my left hand and he just sat there, calm and peaceful. I carried him in the palm of my hand all the way back home (admittedly not far, 200 yds or so). I placed him in one of my planters containing succulents on top of the soil in a good-sized planter. I brought some good filtered water out and poured just a bit near him – he moved just a little as I did this. Then, within about 15 minutes or so, he had buried himself under the soil – I can see the mound he made but haven’t disturbed him since as my sense is that he is happy and content – and if he eats plant matter, which I suspect, he has an unlimited source of nutrition for as long as he wants to stay. So cool – I have really been connecting with my animal spirit guides – Owl, Hawk, Rabbit, and now Scarab (Dung Beetle). Feeling blessed…
Who would know, the beetle, can be the most praiseworthy of all the totems. I had one land on me today a flying giant beetle in Texas, and he landed on an ice cube tray I had outside and was taking a drink, I wish I had stopped to try and help him instead of shoot him away. But it is nice to see him and you hope he got a drink before I chased him off it. I love the beetles energy!
My mom had a beautiful carnelian stone that has etching on it. I have discovered it’s a scarab! Reading the information on the scarab being a totem animal – well – that’s me to a T. 💖 I have always loved it and think I will have it set into a ring. Thank you for the great information!
it got mad at me and chased me for grabbing it screaming and throwing it on the ground though x’DD
Had a dream about beetles everywhere last night. Wasn’t sure since I’d never had this dream before. Whenever one was gone another two or three popped up. They were neverending literally and figuratively. Anyway, the interpretation held a lot of meaning for me. Thx so much for posting!!
I had exactly the same dream 2 nights ago!!! what is the meaning? black Beatles poping up inside a cavern and I was there like an expectator in a corner
I green Scarab landed on my wrist on Saturday then on Monday another one. on my shoulder then on Tuesday it fllew so close I had it in my hand then i t flew away. A second time it came back around 15 minutes later….WOWOWO
Soooooooooo, I had commented on the fly page about my scarab dream, and bam, this whole page about change, and being strong, and having the ability to turn negativity into positive is absolutely right about me, I am a powerful leader when it comes to controlling the energy around me, and yesterday was my affirmation. I managed to maintain peace after my 17 year old neighbor wrecked his brothers car into 12 cars, ending with my truck. I was able to make everyone maintain tolerance and love and respect when there were at least 5 people who wanted to cause violence and hatred. There was hundreds of people out, and any other day, I would have watched there be riots out side my home. but yesterday I put an end to the negativity on my block. I will continue to drive the negativeness away, and protect my family and neighbors. NAMASTE I pray for the boys forgiveness from everyone involved, hes a good kid, who had a bad idea.
bless you for you loving ways:)
I had a beetle land on my left shoulder twice in one night. The next afternoon another landed on my left shoulder. Yesterday one landed on my back and tonight i found one crawling up the back of my shirt laying in bed… What the heck…
We have the same situation, but it comes whenever Im not feeling well
So I got a story from today. While meditating under a tree after 1 min a metallic green beetle came flying to just below my feet. I opened my eyes and thought wow he is really trying to tell me something. So I continue on listening to other sounds along with my breathing and after about 8 minutes I hear a buzz and feel something land on my hear. I’m like dang someone is really trying to tell me something. I wait a few moments and gently remove a small creature from my ear. Meanwhile I finish my meditation, eat and get in the truck to run errands. After I parked and started walking I started putting my hair in a bun. Don’tcha know there was the green beetle hanging out in my hair for like an HOUR!!! So cool! When I receive this sort of animal guidance, I do my best to tune in and listen to what an animal is saying before I go online and research the meaning. I find it more challenging but rewarding and valuable in a sense that I build trust my intuition! So, first I tuned in to my encounter with this green beetle, I felt very protected and supported by this beetle. And That it is my guide right now for what I’m going through. Then 2ND, I came to this site. Wow I’m blown away by the alignment of my life and the medicine of the beetle shared above. It’s almost to true to be true. This spirit animal helped me so much today! Here is the deal, in my meditation I heard you and your boyfriend need a break because his family stress is too much for you right now. So after meditation and the nettle crawling out of my hair I call him and tell him about my idea of a break. He supported me knowing I will feel better having my own space for a little bit. THANK YOU BEETLE SPIRIT! You assisted me so much today in guiding me to change and to remove myself from drama. Love this site! Lots of love ❤️ <3
As I was leaving for work, I found a large black beetle at my door (inside the house), never had one b4. Oh I killed it, freaked me out. Not a bug lover. I think I thought it was a cockroach at first. when I cleaned it up, thick black shell, then I realized it was a beetle. Went on to work spent 9 hours gone. Came home cleaned up, talking on the phone I hear a sound and find a green grasshopper jumping at my door (inside the house). Two insects, in the same day in the same location. Hmmm what is that about??? I did let this guy out to live another day. Any comments would be welcomed ( no you bug killer comments please ?)…
What does is mean if I keep finding Japanese beetles in my room? I have found 6 or 7 of them over the past few weeks. U have a small tear in my screen but to enter they would have to squeeze themselves thru to get it. I know there is a reason they keep appearing?
i just shock surprise when “mushi king” scarab beetle in flying in front me in our staircase last july 10, 2016 @ 10:00 pm.. as of now he / she is my pet .. they think i’m crazy.. but i don’t mind them..
What about just a standard garden beetle? Symbolism still applies?
What does it mean to have a dream about a golden scarab? I had a dream a really small one about the size of an ant attached itself to my finger and I was immortal..talk about crazy. But when I woke and looked it up I found a letter about a lady who had a dream of one too. Talk about weird.
A scarab beetle keeps following me..for a while last year, twice this year. Maybe they’re diff beetles of same species…but I’m sure it is the same one. What’s gg on?
I just came home from my gf’s place, and there was, what looked like, a dung beetle on the kitchen door right in front of me. I stood still for a few seconds and took some time before I got the courage walk right passed it.
The wierd part is, although having never seen one in real life before, I always answered the childhood question of ‘what animal would you like to be?’, with: a Dung Beetle.. Because I always believed that a dung beetle is the epitome of being able to make something out of nothing. I believe I was blessed with this ability. Not necessarily in the physical sense only, but in a way through thought and execution. It’s a little complex to explain.
Secondly, here in Durban, South Africa, I have never, in 28 years, ever heard of anyone seeing one of these beetles. Feel the chills. And the explanation on this site about the ‘unresolved family situation’, is spot on! Gives me a bit of a chill to see how well the explanation relates to me directly.
Anyway, I’m not sure if I’m just grasping at straws or this relation is not just coincidental. After all, there are some things in life that are just too beautiful to be simply passed on as a mere coincidence.
I love this website. It is clear and straight to the point. Thank you!
