The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life.
As we move into Autumn, the leaves on the trees begin to turn, the hedgerows are full of crabapples, blackberries, rosehips and sloes – a bounty to be found before everything dies back and lays dormant. As nature sheds itself in the most predictable way, so might we also let go of what we no longer need. What is holding you back? It might feel good to let go of feelings, thoughts and behaviours that are not serving you anymore. The dragonfly symbolises change and nature reminds us each year that change is necessary in order that we can grow.
