Starfish Symbolism

Okay - so things are a bit tough right now - however know that things will regenerate into something much stronger and far more abundant. Focus on gratitude and the positive outcomes to bring them to you sooner.

Crossing Paths With the Starfish Totem

Starfish is reminding you that although you see things as black and white there is also a middle road of many shades of gray. Know that what you perceive as right or wrong may also fall into these categories and that you must discern where you must give and where you must take. Fighting for the whole shebang will not serve you or anyone else. Compromise will ease the conflict and resolve any dispute.

Alternatively the starfish totem may be letting you know that you have to start using some of your higher senses in the situation you find yourself in. Let go of sight and sound and you will be able to feel what is right. The heart will always know the appropriate action.

As Your Animal Totem

You move through life doing most things in your own unique way. You trust your instincts and have the innate ability to discern new possibilities and opportunities. You have the ability to follow your inner voice and heart to achieve your goals and desires. You have a tendency to see things either as black or white, up or down, right or wrong and occasionally will judge others with this criteria rather than recognizing that all things are usually balanced somewhere in the middle.

Dream Interpretation

To see a this creature in your dream suggests that you are undergoing a period of healing and regeneration after a period of pain and chaos. Alternatively it could also mean that you have many options to weigh and decisions to make.

A beached dead or dying starfish is a symbol of lost connections. Perhaps you have forgotten to listen to your inner voice and heart.

    • I moved 3 years ago to a new home and was cleaning the house before moving in. In the midst of cleaning, in all the trash, was a dry, cute, little Starfish. And something just told me “this Starfish is important. You need to keep it. ” so i did. That was long before i was as connected to my spirituality as i am now.
      So i just stumbled upon it again yesterday. From that time, to now, has been the rock bottom for my family and i. Times have been so hard, where i just feel so much like giving up. So i came across the Starfish and remembered that something told me it was important. And then it clicked, i found this Starfish for a reason.. I’ve recently began building my totem and i knew as soon as i remembered that , that i was connected to Starfish. Like telling me everything will be okay. ♡
