Illusion, Mesmerize, All Potential, True Self, the Power of Light

Dragonfly belongs to a species of insects that have inhabited our planet for almost 300 million years, it is elegant, graceful… and purposeful – Dragonfly is also a warrior, taking aim at any pesky mosquitoes in the area.
Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and communications from the elemental world. Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the part of your habits which you need to change… if you are wanting change, call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation.
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.
The traditional association of Dragonflies with water also gives rise to this meaning to this amazing insect. The Dragonfly’s scurrying flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. 
Dragonfly has beautiful, jewel-like coloring.  The bright colours take time to develop, reflecting the idea that with maturity our own true colours come forth. This is part of dragonfly medicine.
Dragonfly has the ability to reflect and refract light and colors and is often associated with magic and mysticism. Just as light can bend and shift and be adapted in a variety of ways, so can the archetypal forces associated with dragonfly. It conveys the message that life is never what it appears to be.
Dragonfly’s wings can mesmerize us, altering our consciousness and taking us into a shimmering world. This is the realm of the soul. Dragonfly’s first teaching is to make space for mystery. Dragonfly’s ability to reflect and refract light and colour connects with many forms of magic and mysticism – including colour magic, illusion – causing others only to see what you wish… Dragonfly magic is the power of light and all that has ever been associated with it.
If we remain locked in our rational mind, we lose touch with our heart, soul and spirit. Dragonfly encourages us to see the illusions that define us. Let him guide you to the forgotten part of your soul so that an understanding of your true self can begin to emerge.
Dragonfly often hovers in one place… from this still center he can move up, down, backward, forward, left, right… these are the seven directions of the sky, earth, east, south, west north and center. This identifies dragonfly as the keeper of potential. He begins his life in the water and then goes through a long process of transformation before emerging in his full magnificence. He teaches us that we can pursue our dreams. Realizing our true potential, in a way that also benefits other people is the ultimate expression of the power of dragonfly. By helping a person see through illusion, dragonfly awakens one’s true vision.
The eyes of the dragonfly are one of the most amazing and awe inspiring sights. Given almost 80% of the insect’s brain power is dedicated to its sight and the fact that it can see in all 360 degrees around it, it symbolizes the uninhibited vision of the mind and the ability to see beyond the limitations of the human self. It also symbolizes rising from materialism to see beyond the mundane into the vastness that is really our Universe, and our own minds.
Flying at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour they can spot movement forty feet away. Flying into and around things from different angles, they challenge rigid awareness and prompt the energy of change for anyone who holds this medicine.
“Let there be light” is the divine prompting to use the creative imagination as a force within your life. Life is never quite the way it appears, but it is always filled with light and colour. Dragonfly helps you to see through your illusions and thus allow your own light to shine forth. Dragonfly brings the brightness of transformation and the wonder of colourful new vision.
Dragonfly is extremely difficult to catch, and this ability combined with his astonishing swiftness and accuracy while hunting insects in the air, makes him a superior warrior.  If you need help with battles you are fighting, or with goals you want to achieve, call on dragonfly.

The dragonfly normally lives most of its life as a nymph under water. It flies only for a fraction of its life and usually not more than a few months. This adult dragonfly does it all in these few months and leaves nothing to be desired. Thus, Dragonfly reminds us to live in the moment and live life to the fullest. By living in the moment you are aware of who you are, where you are, what you are doing, what you want, what you don’t and can make informed choices on a moment-to-moment basis. This ability lets you live your life without regrets like the great dragonfly.

Dragonfly tells us a little of what we might expect in this period:

With Dragonfly influencing this period, we are being told that we need some fresh air around an emotional matter. We are being asked to gain a new perspective or to make a change. Have you been neglecting your feelings? Are you being too rational?
Look for some significant change to occur, especially in our understanding of self – and don’t resist changing… Dragonfly can suggest that a two-year cycle of change is due to reach its culmination…. or you are entering a two-year cycle of transformation…. be alert and noticing…
A fascinating mystery could occupy your mind this month… it is certainly the right time to explore the realms of mystery and mysticism.
Dragonflies remind us that we are light and can reflect the light in powerful ways if we choose… Be prepared to shift your focus as new perspectives come to light.
Expect a new awareness of self, changes that bring a greater self-realization, a deeper understanding of the meaning of the events, people and circumstances of your life.. Dragonfly urges us to look beneath the surface.. Be aware… we could find that we are being challenged to look beyond the illusions that our leaders may portray in order for them to mask what is really occurring.
