There are insects all around, all the time - except for during the Winter here in the Northeast... and then again, sometimes in the winter if the house is warm enough and we bring the firewood inside to dry a bit we get an ant or two that will rouse from their slumber to investigate... we don't take that as a spiritual sign - just a sign of a warm house and ant filled logs.
BUT - this past two weeks we have had a remarkable visitor - repeatedly onto our front porch. Since the majority of signs in my life come in the form of those darling 4-6-8 legged critters, I am pretty good at recognizing who's who in the insect and arachnid kingdom... when my husband called me out on the porch and said... what the heck is that? I said... OH, that's a Katydid... they have been around a lot this past week... and he said.... I DON"T REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I SAW ONE THIS CLOSE TO THE HOUSE.... That gave me pause, and then I thought about it a bit more... and I realized, he was right! Though we hear them often enough in the evening, they are fairly shy and are not among those that are drawn to the light of the front porch.... which led me to wonder... are they a sign?
Yesterday I was home sick, and in my musings from the couch I noticed that there were a couple of Katydids on the window, during broad daylight! So I looked them up and here is what I found - and it certainly makes sense to where my business and my personal self are at this moment.
Katydid teaches attunement to new vibrations and will aid in heightening intuition, sensitivity and awareness. They teach transformation in five stages as part of the molting process. Is it time to shed old ideas to make way for the new? Expect changes and new developments that will bring growth through reflection and patience as the sensitivity to mental, emotional and physical challenges are coming are your way. Katydids also teach the art of camouflage and the ability to evolve and use many survival techniques. Are you adapting to your surroundings? Are you blending in or standing out? Katydid will aid in strengthening senses and perceptions of the seen and unseen so whatever transformation stage you are in will be a time to be aware; mentally and spiritually sharp
