Grasshopper Meaning and Messages

In this case, Grasshopper symbolism is asking you to “take a leap” of faith. Similar to the Black Horse, the Grasshopper meaning insists that you must go ahead and do it. You do not have to know the outcome. Usually, this is something that you have avoided doing and is part of a large-scale change in direction. This shift can be an adjustment in a relationship, advance in a career, or a transition within yourself. Grasshopper symbolism also means that you have the wisdom that you need. Right now, you can get past any obstacles in an efficient manner. With this spirit animal, for the most part, all possible outcomes will be positive.

Grasshopper Totem, Spirit Animal

People with the Grasshopper totem are innovative, forward thinkers that rarely miss an opportunity to move forward. They are always successful in any venture that they undertake. Folks with this spirit animal also know how to use their instincts to capture the exact moment that will give them the most significant benefit. They are benevolent and enjoy giving to others. Furthermore, they rarely stay in one place very long. Like the Osprey, they always seek out the best opportunities to move forward.

Grasshopper Dream Interpretation

When you have a Grasshopper dream, it is usually an indication that you are having a bit of trouble committing yourself to a decision. Thus you need to settle down to the task at hand. Alternatively, this insect is a symbol of freedom, independence, and enlightenment in a dream.

If the creature is moving away from you, it signifies that what you were hoping and dreaming of is just out of reach. In other words, you must change something within yourself to fulfill your dreams completely. This is the only way to get what you want out of life.

Unlike the sure-footed Goat, to dream of thousands of these insects is an omen of uncertain footing as you move through some significant changes.

  • When I was a young lad I was walking through the woods in southwest England with my dad and my sister. I was lagging behind and I heard a very deep loud cricket sound. I approached the Bush where I heard the noise coming from and pulled apart some branches to find an enormous cricket ( if memory serves maybe 7 - 10") thought nothing of it other than being a bit grossed out and left it be. It always seemed such a real experience and I told people about it as I was growing up as if it was a real experience. I am now not sure if it was an intense vivid dream or not given how enormous it was. Has anyone else experienced something similar in their dreams?

    • There is a very large species of crickets called bull crickets. From what I know from studying animals as a hobby, there are almost very big or very small versions of an animals people are convinced don’t exist, but do. The biggest bird is as a big as a human being, actually, and there are all kinds of surprising sizes in the animal kingdom, if you start to get curious and start googling things like “biggest insect,” “biggest rodent,” “smallest deer,” or “smallest bird.”

  • A few months ago, my cat got hold of this grasshopper, I rescued it but the damage was done. Poor thing lost a leg, so now it's a one legged grasshopper.
    On and off he would be caught by my cat and somehow, I rescue it and put it on a tree. Happened 3 or 4 times.
    Today a few months later, I hear my cat meowing again. She has this strange meow when she catches something. There it is the same one legged grass hopper. Again, I rescue and put him in a safe place. Why do I keep seeing the same grasshopper, don't know how he survived this long

    • I sense a one legged grasshopper might mean that you need to take smaller leaps of faith as you move forward in life. If you are afraid to take larger risks, start by making small risks first. Face your fears in smaller ways first, before attempting to do much scarier tasks.

    • I sense it might mean that that you lost an important opportunity by not listening to your gut instinct in taking a leap of faith. Next time when you encounter an opportunity you feel your heart is calling onto you, make sure to take the chance to take it this time.

  • Aloha. This risin I awoke and began cleaning my car only to find a dead grasshopper in the back seat. I was curious what it meant? I have been going through a lot of inner transformation and I feel as though I’m back on my path. My friend suggested it might be the grasshopper transferring it’s energy to me to give me strength and it’s attributes so I’m looking at the positive spin as I don’t think death really separates us and images and energy’s are all still relevant as they are but just curious what other people thought

  • I had a weird dream. My fellow told something to me as a poem which made me question strongly about ghosts like yes.. They are real. Then the grass and leaves under my leg converted to grasshoppers. They came and stick to my ears. I was trying to get rid of them. No fear yet. Then a lot of them came to my ears, situation got uncontrollable and they entered my ear. I was so afraid and didn't know what to do. It was so terrifying that I wake up. What does it mean? Please help me to get answer.

    • Hi,

  • I'm living in Mexico at the moment, but in a very large, very urban (and somewhat dirty) city. Tonight I was sitting in one of my favorite cafes and, in the midst of some wayward reverie, was startled by the largest grasshopper I have ever seen flying down to land at the cafe's entrance! He (or she) seemed frazzled and tense at first, but then visibly relaxed. Then, after a few minutes, he jumped onto the cafe's standing signboard and proceeded to climb, very slowly and smoothly, to the top of it. Then he turned his body to face me, and then stared straight at me for maybe 10-15 minutes. After that he jumped onto the couch nearby and chilled there for a few. Then he started climbing up the wall toward the neon sign.
    During this episode (and especially while he was grilling me) I looked up this site and others about the significance of grasshoppers! Aside from what's been written, any input as to what this could mean?

    • I have been battling addiction since I was 14. I'm now 28. I was inside my apartment and I felt something on my arm. I looked down and it was a bright green grasshopper. My boyfriend put him outside over the balcony and that was that. I go outside 2 days later and he is perched by the sliding glass door, awaiting entry. I decided to look it up and this has given me relief. I am trying to detox and thought about going into a detox center and all symbolism from the grasshopper tells me that I can face my fears.

      • Well if you want a dream symbol interpretation.
        Grasshopper sybolises opportunity, and cat is both self deciet and protection, but more deciet.

        So, in shotr. There is this oppurtunity, that is still out there for you. But you are (consciously or unconsciously closing your eyes from it).

        The cat is avoidance of the said situation and oppurtunity

    • Since grasshoppers are a symbol of good luck and abundance, by not accepting the offer presented to you, you did not see yourself as worthy of receiving the blessings being offered to you, or of those trying to come your way. Sometimes we don't see ourselves as deserving of our own prosperity, and that is what creates limitations when trying to manifest or create the life we want. We have to change the narrative in our own mind first... tell it a new story, one of being worthy of every blessing possible.

  • Just saw a grasshopper on my balcony. It just stayed there as I spoke with it and took photos. Amazing details, I wish I could share the pic.

    I immediately looked up totems and it couldn’t be more so. I’m leaving my apartment to live in my car September 14th. I have a lawsuit court date happening August 24th. I’ve been in a place of not knowing where my life is heading for awhile now. As much as I pray for guidance, I still feel a bit lost. I mostly focus on gratitude and the blessings in my life.

    Seems like so many are leaving their residents behind and residing in their cars and tents. Is this part of the Earth changes happening? I hope to find a place I can connect with other like minded spirits before I transition for this world. I’ll be mindful of the blessings of the grasshopper.

    • Christo, I’m praying for you and your situation.
      I as well have been having crazy grasshopper experiences. It started with one in my car that just stayed near me one day. The next day I had 8 grasshoppers inside my car and 4 on the outside. I drove to the store and they all managed to hang on. Got home, left windows cracked for them to leave but they stayed. For 5-6 days now I see at least one inside my car or on my rear view mirror on drivers door. Then, as i was leaving work, there was 2 of them on the inside of the buildings door. Then the next day there was one outside my front door. Now I was sitting on my porch and my son knocks on the window and points to the window above my head. There is a grasshopper on the window looking straight down at me! This has been a week that I’ve seen at least one (usually more) every day!!! I talk to them and ask them what they are trying to tell me. Any thoughts?

    • Hello Christo I'm sorry to hear about your current circumstance having to be living in your car. I can relate to your situation because I too. Lived in my truck for 6 months and it was the hardest thing ever but I never lost faith n God got me through it when I thought I had lost all hope. I would like to share with you tbat today on my lunch I was sitting down on the curb and this grasshopper. was gracefully walking towards me so I took a couple of pictures and then he got really close to my feet and jumped on me .my initial reaction was I got up screamed and jumped lol . I am currently going through a situation where I rent through Fairfield apartments and they lied to me and took my money and falsified documents and left me broke since July I've been stressed out and worried frantically about this but through these weeks I have been seeing gorgeous dragonflies that are so bright and colorful and big gorgeous stunning monarch butterflies and now a grasshopper. Which I thought was a praying mantis but what I'm trying to say is like you I was saying omg I'm gonna end up living in my car again or on the street but I have been blessed to have the magnificent creatures reassure me that everything is going to be ok and my spirit guides my guardian angels our giving me messages to give me comfort and peace so I wanted you to know that maybe the grasshopper was a sign for me to look up on the symbolic meaning and it brought me to see your post and share with you that I've been the where you are and as bad as it may seem your are NOT ALONE. This is a major transformation of change n to be patient stay positive and allow yourself to be aware of what's around you and allow the universe to work for you and your situation that will be for the greater good. God works miracles he is with you all the time and you will see that everything is meant to happen and you will prosper and have a victorious and abundant life. Don't loose faith may God bless you.

  • Thirty-five years ago, my driver's ed instructor, Mr. Donaldson, taught me to constantly check all of my mirrors--every two seconds" he would say. I've always carried his teachings with me as he was so patient and kind...even with the "bad" kids. Leaving home this afternoon (2pm EST), and I was anxious to leave because I didn't want to be in the house with my abusive husband (my new husband and I are divorcing--after seven years of dating and less than three months married I found out that he'd been cheating for months leading up to our Oct 2017 marriage and beyond). The energy at home has been awful; he treats me as if I'm the having the affair. Anyway, headed towards the freeway about 1/4 of a mile away, I checked my mirrors every two seconds as always. It wasn't until I had been on the freeway about a minute or two that I noticed a large green grasshopper clinging to my passenger side mirror. I hadn't thought much in the way of spirits or omens until after I decided to share the "incident' with my mother and sister (9pm). My angel guide led me to google "grasshopper good omen" and I came across a few sites. However, this message board has been the most intriguing. Thanks everyone for sharing; all of this has been exactly what I needed to feel comfortable in this toxic environment until our divorce is settled...hopefully, during our Aug 27th settlement hearing.

    • Just finished writing my own comment and ran across yours. I too, am leaving my apartment and moving into my Toyota Prius C. I removed the seats and built a platform and tricked it out for my simple needs. I ask myself, what am I doing. I’m 50 years old and I’ll just be traveling around, working from anywhere. It has been calling me for almost a year and finally my lease is up. Feels like I have been living in molasses. Can’t wait to break free. I have bumped into many others that are hearing the same calling. I wish you well on your journey.

  • Hi, as I was walking to work in the morning I noticed so many grasshoppers dead and trembled on.

    They were all spread perhaps more than twenty of them (both the green and brown), the location being a bus station, they were all trembled on which took my attention.

    Being a city, I couldn't expect to see grasshoppers but there they were all dead. I had also spotted one at the corridor in the building where I work also dead.

    Seeing all these other dead made me wonder what could this mean? Recently I had been seeking help from the guides to remove every negative energies and unworthy relationships from me to reach my goals and higher self. We have been in a good relationship with them and they always respond to my requests, but this one is hard to digest the meaning.

    What's this supposed to mean?

    • I think that this means you just need to be much more confident in yourself and you just need to let thing go out of hand and do it. Whatever situation you are in, you need to feel free and do the work because since you saw all of those dead grasshoppers, they are telling you that the out comes will always be positive.

  • Grasshopper said "Listen to your inner voice and you will know exactly what you have to do" If only it were that easy. I've tried many different ways for many years to hear my inner voice. I don't seem to have made any progress on this, or in life, despite my best efforts :-(

      • This is really interesting! I am Portuguese and I live in India since 2012, and these last few weeks I have been doing with a Durga temple Swami's some pujas and rituals to clear bad energies. we will do the last one soon. Since we started I ve been reciting Hindu mantras and prayers every morning and evening. and between yesterday and today, entered in my little daughter's bathroom one scarab (today morning), and one grasshopper (yesterday night). The most curious is that the toilet has no windows, just small openings near the roof with mosquito net!... Amazing... I hope blessings coming our way.

  • There is a Grasshoper growing outside my room. I discovered her 4 weeks ago and the lil beaut is still here. I have watched her shed twice. Last night I returned home and as i'm walking into my room i see this gigantic long and curled moving creature underneath her favorite plant. She was shedding her skin and now has wings. So wonderful. I have been watching her grow from a lil bud to a full winged grasshoper. It is symbolic as I too am shedding my layers and spreading my wings across the horizon and expanding within.
    Thanks everyone ❤

      • We just learned my daughters father passed Wednesday. To was a very long heartbreaking day for her. By the time we made it home of course she was exhausted but wanted to shower and rest. As she begin to shower I heard her scream. She jumped out n said ma there’s a grasshopper in the shower. I said Ok what you want me to do. She said kill it. Now I know she’s frantic of anyt insect so I went could see a glimpse of him Ins her towel. Shook her towel to let him fall in the tub but after I open the curtains he’d disappeared. I’m thinking this definitely has to do with her fathers death telling he I have faith in her new journey to move forward without him in her life.
