Daily Angel Card ~ Dragonfly
Dragonfly: Transformation, Magic, Illusion
“This card is reminding you to use creative imagination as a force within your life. It can transform your world! When you utilize your mind in this manner, you are actively expanding yourself psychically. Do not allow illusion to hold you back. Know that nothing is permanent or set in stone. You can change your life. Dragonfly, weaver of dreams, is the symbol of transformation and new visions.
This bringer of light also reminds you to keep yourself light (carefree), harness your light (magic), and allow light (Divine inspiration) to illuminate your path. Nothing can stop you unless you allow it. Peek behind the veil and discover the magic awaiting you.
Additional meanings of this card: Work with this card to see through the veil of illusions so that you may be clear on those things that matter most to you. There is an underlying purpose for the situation about which you are inquiring. Trust that all will be revealed in Divine timing for the greater good.”*

Emotion/Whimsy: Have you found yourself being carried by the currents of your emotions? Are you changing your mind frequently and having difficulty being consistent? The dragonfly spirit is symbolism of both water and air. This symbolizes a great influence of emotion and capriciousness. If you’ve encountered a dragonfly the meaning is that you may need to reign in your emotions, get some fresh air, spend some time in the sun near a body of water, and look for a new perspective.
Conversely: If you’re being too rational and detached, the dragonfly’s appearance may be symbolism of the need for you to reconnect with the emotional aspect of yourself, to not be bogged down, to take flight and be free, to shed burdens and dance in the winds of life.
Symbolism of Dragonfly People:
I have often taken comfort in Dragon flies flying around our yard in the summer time. They are a marvel to watch, zooming and landing so gracefully. My kids and I will sit and watch them for hours, imagining tiny fairies riding on their backs, taking care of the plants and flowers in our garden. They have a mystical and beautiful energy and I can’t imagine a summer without them. They are also messengers of the Angels, coming to us when we need them as signs of freedom, perception and imagination, reminding us to connect with our inner child. It’s September now and I am still lucky enough to see them here and there on a sunny day but I know it won’t be long before they leave for the winter, only to return on the first sunny late spring day as a herald of sunny, beautiful and carefree summer days to come.
