Animal Connections – Spider and Moth

Omens, the signs we see, are not always “good omens” or  “bad omens.”  Spiders and moths can be animal omens that portend good or bad news.

Spiders are messengers and are symbols for the infinite possibilities of creation. Her eight legs represent the four winds of change and the four directions on the medicine wheel. The most important
message of spider is that you are an infinite being who will continue to weave the patterns of life and living throughout time. Do not fail to see the expansiveness of the eternal plan.

Moths are messengers from the spirit world, telling us that a ghost is around. If a moth lands on your shoulder, ear, or head and keeps following you,
it is a messenger from a ghost. A good ghost will give
you a warm feeling; a bad ghost will feel cold and eerie.

Some countries believe that White Moths are souls of lost people seeking the way to heaven, Black Moths are evil omens, and if one flies into your face means that a letter is on the way to you.
All spiders are good luck.

A quick-list of animal symbolism of moths:
• Vulnerability
• Determination
• Concealment
• Attraction
• Subtlety
• Intuition
• Faith
we may find another message to adjust our course as our path indicates rather than drive forward without heeding important signs along the way.

Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives. When the Spider appears to us, it is a message to be mindful of the choices we are making The Spider symbol meaning beckons us to be mindful of our behaviors – be smart about the life we weave for ourselves.

Again and again we find stories that emphasize creation or teachings. Native American: the grandmother protector/teacher, Egypt: Neith creation/weaver; Greek: Arachne another weaver/resurrection;

One final note, if you’ve visited my website often, you know I’m a big proponent of individual interpretation. Symbol meanings are very personal and profound. I merely provide a foundation of symbol meanings; ultimately, only YOU can determine what the meaning of Spider, or Moth, is to you.

A Note About Timing…

We are living in a dynamic universe and the dates of all the holidays are marching forward through time. We have walked 7 degrees since the astrological time markers were laid down. Those 7 degrees are typically a matter of hours. But evening and night holidays can jump to the next calender day. The dates listed above may vary depending on your source. We use the adjusted calendar that accounts for the 7 degree shift of time. We cannot list every appropriate time for each lunar event and each holiday for each time zone in the sidebar. The Solstices are listed with specific times that need adjusting for your time zone. The Quarter days are not. They are listed on the evening before if the holiday crosses over astrologically or if it's celebrated after dark. Some holidays this year, like Lammas and Lughnassad, split the difference. In that case they are listed on consecutive days. Hope this eases your mind when dealing with the discrepancies found online. ✩ )O( ✩

VOC tables from Dr. Loretta Standley

Go to http://www.drstandley.com/Void_of_Course_Moon_Calendar_2014.shtml for the specific times of the VOC moon from 27 to 3 degrees of each transitional period. Dr. Standley presents the information in easy to read tables, with directions to calibrate the times to your time zone.
