Scarab beetle totem is an ancient harbinger of magic and change. Let’s take a look at what it might mean if it shows up for you.

Highly revered in ancient Egypt, the scarab was a sacred symbol of immortality, resurrection, and transformation. This means scarab beetle totem is a powerful ally for creation and metamorphosis in your life.

Scarabs shape balls of ox dung by rolling them from east to west, associating them with the sun and its daily journey across the sky. This is itself a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.

Scarabs are a powerful symbol of new life.

Scarab Beetle Totem Meditation

Close your eyes. Focus on your breath until your heart rate slows and steadies.

Call to the scarab beetle totem. Invoke it by saying something like: “I call the the scarab beetle spirit. Be with me now. I ask for your wisdom and guidance.”

When you feel ready, ask the following question:

Where in my life would I benefit from a change right now?

Is there a situation or part of my life that is ripe for transformation? What is it? What do I need to do to put that change into motion?

And then? Listen.

When you’re done, thank the scarab beetle spirit for its assistance.

Write down any impressions or thoughts you may have. In the days to come, reflect on these notes. Consider how you want to move forward based on what you’ve learned.
