The amphibious and metamorphic essence of frog is one that feels very close to me of recent. And it’s no wonder I’ve seen so many frogs along our travels, like this one, since Nature reflects to us our mirror. Frogs are strongly connected to the water element and since fluidity has become the journey more than ever, I’m seeing how their essence in so many ways does in fact partner in the flow. They are truly magickal creatures that speak of renewal, purity, cleansing, healing, transitions, abundance, creative fertility, and opportunities abound.
Indeed their ancient wisdom helps foster new perspectives and assists us to leap or swim swiftly from one level of consciousness to another – from this world to the Otherworlds. Frogs help us to experience the Great Mystery with ease and swim in Moon Magick and all of her gifts of the Sacred Feminine.
And how perfectly fitting frog is with our upcoming Full Moon in Aries this Sunday the 16th, which is a Super Moon heralding a real lively burst of energy available to harness and that partners these Sacred energies in a productively beautiful dance.
Frogs help us to find courage in accepting new ideas, to foster a sense of self-nurturing, and to discover connections between ideas. And like this Full Moon’s energy, they align with this being the time NOW to focus on healing and freeing yourself from pain and suffering by cleansing all toxicity from your life (people, habits, things, ideas, etc.) that’s impinging on your freedom and both hurting and holding you back.
Both Aries and frogs are about exciting opportunities being presented and your ability to act now and get things done you’ve been wanting to or procrastinating.
Any projects been knocking at your door?
Hop to it!
You’ll be supported with ease.
When a frog jumps into your life it may be indicative of the opportunities that can be discovered in the now of your transition. And this Moon energy will help to positively get those underway.
The frog has a unique growth cycle and undergoes some incredible transformations in its progression and attainment of full adulthood, just as we humans do. Hence, frog understands what it feels like to endure some serious growing pains, and uncomfortable and even yucky feelings, along that transition.
Their ability to lay enormous amounts of eggs lends to their fertility symbolism as well as being synonymous with abundance.
Frog’s medicine reminds us of our ties and bonds with all life, help us to understand our emotions more deeply, support healing transformations and cleansing rebirth, and activate the remembrance of our ancient origins of cosmic watery essence.
Aries is also the initiator of beginnings and partnered with our sound healing friend the frog, remind us of our song that ignites our essence into wholeness.
Happy Spring!! I thought you might enjoy this article repost, as you welcome in a new season of you. Today is the start of our Reiki Renewal Retreat here in Laguna Beach, California where we’ll be expanding and blossoming on whole new levels. I have been seeding the changes and intents in my own life, along with doing some major clean-out, so I’m ready for the new ways things will be blossoming into being. I don’t know the results, I merely trust that the place I land when I leap, will gracefully support the highest good. And with “taking leaps” in mind, here is some Frog symbolism and medicine you may find speaking to you right now. I’m looking forward to seeing if any frogs show up for us this weekend on hike time. 😉 Wishing you a sparkly Spring celebration as you breathe in the new.

Life is unfolding rapidly before our eyes and we sometimes don’t realize how truly far we’ve come in a relatively short span of time. It’s time to take stock of what we have in our life and truly feel gratitude for the beauty that we DO have, regardless of all the aspirations and desires we feel we have yet to attain. As spring continues to blossom and unfold, the revving new energies of the year are beginning to truly take form and all that we’ve intended has grand opportunity to come into manifestation. These are exciting times for us all and it is a blessing to be able to share the journey together.
Not only can we all benefit from a little spring cleaning on all levels right now, but could also benefit from a bit of “living” and breathing in of those parts of ourselves and our lives that await our embracing and remembrance. Being in the now and realizing the power of this now moment can be transformative in big ways. There is much we can learn through the symbolism of nature all around us. One such symbol that speaks so deeply of spring and sheds some wonderful light on the now of this moment is that of our friend the frog. Quite an interesting little fellow that most would not pay much mind to, in general, yet has some powerful messages and insight for us, indeed. The frog hops into our experience of spring to share with us his wisdom and offers us the chance to embrace and utilize his gifts to help support our processes during this very exciting time.
So here’s what our friendly frog has to impart and share:
The frog speaks of luck, purity, rebirth, renewal, fertility, healing, metamorphosis, transitions, dreaming, and opportunity. In many cultures, the frog symbolizes shamanism and magic as well, teaching us to leap swiftly from one level of consciousness to another – from this world to the Otherworlds. Frogs help us to find courage in accepting new ideas, to foster a sense of self-nurturing, and to discover connections between ideas.
When a frog jumps into your life it may be indicative of the opportunities that can be discovered in the now of your transition. The frog has a unique growth cycle and undergoes some incredible transformations in its progression and attainment of full adulthood, just as we humans do. Hence he understands what it feels like to endure some serious growing pains, and uncomfortable and even yucky feelings, along that transition.

Different meanings are found from all over the world. The Egyptians share with us the Frog-headed Heket who is an Egyptian Goddess of birthing and creation. The Celts believed the frog represented curative and healing powers because of its connection with water and cleansing rains and to them, was deemed lord over all the Earth. Western and European views see the frog as a symbol of resurrection and spiritual evolution, deemed by the 3 stages of development (egg, tadpole, and fully formed amphibian). The 3 stages also associate the frog, for Christians, as a symbol for the holy trinity and resurrection and are found often in Christian art under this guise. To the Chinese the frog is an emblem of yin energy and good luck. Feng Shui practices recommend putting an image of a frog in the east window of your home to encourage child birth and a happy family life.
Frogs have also been considered a link between the living and dead, represented by Asian custom believing if you placed a jade frog in the mouth of the deceased, not only would this insure safe passage for their transition, but would allow the spirit to communicate more clearly with living loved ones. In Japan, frogs are especially good luck charms for travelers and wearing one was thought to provide safe passage on long voyages, particularly across waters. The frog took on a more cosmic symbolism for Ancient Hindus however, believing frogs not only signify darkness, but that they project the world into orbit in space.
So as you can see, this green little guy is more mystifying and powerful than meets the eye and so synonymous with the energy at hand that spring provides us. We can simply call upon the energy of the frog to help in these changing times of our journey, especially when in need of support in moving more easily through the turbulent waters of some tough life-transitions, need a bit of positive encouragement along your travels, and when you are actively wanting to connect more deeply to the spirit world and focus on your intuitive development.
There is much in store as the year unfolds so it’s nice to know you always have a little friend at hand that can assist. As there are many more adventures to come and so many available if we embrace the opportunities presented to us and optimize all that is in our present experiences. We can rest assured that if we support ourselves and take the necessary steps, we will be supported in return with many blessings and gifts.
