Red metal dragonfly on an enamel background and delicate zig/zag pattern.
The bold red colour is meaningful as an enthusiastic, strong, aggressive colour. Associated with the root chakra, safety and security. Packed with emotion, from love to rage, this strong colour is energizing and inflaming. Designed to get quick attention (think fire trucks!). Red combined with the dragonfly can remind you to be bold in a transformation, to take action, and have courage.
Dragonflies are universally a strong symbol of transformation and change. Due to a dragonfly’s short life cycle, they symbolize living in the moment, and living life to the fullest. 80% of the dragonfly’s brain is used for sight, representing vision, and the ability to see beyond limitations, beyond materialism to understand the deeper meaning of life.
Wear the dragonfly when you need a reminder of change, to be strong in the face of metamorphosis, and the need for flexibility. Wearing the dragonfly can remind you to strive for emotional and mental maturity. With such aerial lightness, the dragonfly can remind you to take life less seriously, have a positive outlook and lighten up.
Culturally, the dragonfly is Japan’s national emblem, a symbol of joy and rebirth.
Many people have told me that a dragonfly is particularly symbolic of a departed loved one, much like some Native American traditions.
