Yesterday I was sitting at the garden table and noticed the most beautiful moth (sitting on grand daughters power bird !)
I wish I had my proper camera with me so I could of got a photo of it’s lovely furry face, it looked a bit like this
So cute ! (Picture Google search)
I tried to identify it,I always call white moths “moon moths” because they are so bright and ethereal compared to most.
I couldn’t find it but these were the closest I got
More like it but not enough pattern
Very like it but this is in America and I can’t find these listed for Uk
I found this fascinating ,Mother shipton was a famous witch, i really want to visit Mother shiptons cave ,objects left there petrify
I looked up the totem meaning of moths : (info from sunsigns.org)
Although moths have symbolism that is similar to that of butterflies, there are several distinctive differences. Because moths are nocturnal animals, they represent several elements that directly contradict those of diurnal butterflies: wisdom of the other world, knowledge, clairvoyance and and secrets.
Nocturnal creatures have nighttime inclinations and tendencies that have specific spiritual and philosophical meanings themselves. Because they conduct their life-sustaining activities and practices in complete darkness, they are highly reliant on sensory perception and are vulnerable. They navigate the night by using their awareness and inner-knowing.
For humans, the moth animal totem is a sign to recognize our own vulnerabilities and utilize our own instincts and intuition, rather than relying solely on the concrete things that we can see in the daylight.
We are also called upon by the moth spirit guide to pay attention to the symbolism in our dreams, interpreting the information and applying it our lives, specifically during dark and difficult times.
(I am going through a difficult time at the moment)

Symbolic Meaning Of Moth
The moth symbolizes determination, attraction, psychic abilities, and faith. Although moths are nocturnal, they are driven toward light for some unknown reason.
Even when its efforts toward light prove dangerous and futile, the moth continues to drive forward, demonstrating its faith and determination. It is vigilant in following the path toward light, teaching us that we, too, should be. We must remain vigilant in all of our pursuits, while keeping our intuition and judgement in tact.
Faith is important, but blind faith with no grounding is foolish. We must pay attention to the signs that are attempting to speak to us. In all of our quests, we need to take care not to fall victim to blind faith and ignorance. The moth teaches us that adjusting our course when necessary is equally as important as driving forward on the path.
When a moth symbol presents itself to you, it should be interpreted as reminder to be be aware of how you are carrying yourself. Moths are symbols of concealment, which can be interpreted in both good and bad ways. As a master of disguise, the moth meaning symbolizes that you could be hiding from yourself.
(Yes,I’ve become a master of concealing my health problems ,which has now backfired on me)
You may be disguising your emotions, keeping yourself hidden from others.
(EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING !! pretending I am not as unwell as I am and always laughing and joking to hide it,I hide away at home when at my worst so no one can see,in turn people have a hard time believing my disabilities)
If this is the case, you must develop faith and trust in yourself and allow your lift to emerge from the darkness. Our hearts are our ultimate guide, and the moth reminds us that we should not disguise it.
(I have finally started to tell people the truth whether they like it or not)
The moth spiritual totem associates itself with optimistic people who can find the silver lining in any situation, however dark it may be.
(I have always been like that thankfully, until recently, when its all got too much !)
Its presence encourages us to develop the ability to seek out the positive in any situation, using our intuition and psychic awareness. We can do this by paying attention to small details, practicing good listening skills, and being a solid companion to those in our lives.
Like many other spiritual animals, a moth spirit guide’s presence in your dreams serves as a signal. Generally, it is a signal for you to pay attention to minor and seemingly unimportant details and take care not to overlook things.
Small things can quickly turn huge and catastrophic if not given due attention.
(That could mean my health issues,some of them could turn catastrophic I continue to ignore them)
The moth symbolism may also be suggesting that there is some unseen irritation boiling inside you. If you do not dig deeply into yourself and identify it, it may not surface until it is too late.
(I’ve been irritated with myself and family but finally I’ve started to talk about it)
Along with this, the moth sometimes symbolizes a weakness.
(Well that’s my body full stop right now !)
It can be a flaw in your character that can lead to your demise if you allow it to.
(I have a weakness to medication and my big fear lately is that I am going to die from it !!!)
As a fragile creature, the moth symbolizes a fragile state of mind and attempts to encourage us to take a step back, allow ourselves to heal, and move forward toward a positive life.
(This I am planning right now)
This was so accurate it gave me the shivers !!
Looks like I now have another power animal 🙂
I have always been attracted to moths and never understood why most girls scream if they see them,I had a pet one called Marvin,in fact I had quite a few ,Marvin,Marvin 2,Marvin 3 etc
One of them would sit on my desk while I was writing
Animals always have messages for you if you are prepared to “listen”
