Frog Symbolism & Meaning (part 2)
By Huy Nguyen on Apr 16, 2022
Frog is a walker between two worlds – water and earth. As a predominantly night creature Frog has strong ties to the moon. This creature’s songs bring in the rain, and work his special magic.
The connection of the frog to the water element also appears in Native American symbolism. Here, the frog is a medicine animal that helps in healing (by virtue of its transformative being) and the calling of rains. In fact, medicine men have used frogs to cure various diseases, causing them to hop off from the afflicted person.
The frog’s connection to abundance and fertility is also not overlooked, along with its capacity for growth and rebirth. It is therefore not unusual that some Native American tribes like the Zuni and the Creek have frogs as their totem animals.
In nature Frogs are harbingers of spring. They hide beneath snow until things begin to melt. Then the males begin announcing their intention to the females, followed later by a hearty group of bouncing baby Frogs who live in the melted snow and mud. This is one of the reasons that Frogs represent birth and fertility.
Far Eastern symbolism depict the Frog as a feminine spirit (yin). In both China and Japan Frog brings prosperity and good luck.
People in Japan often don Frog amulets for fortune or safety in travel. In Asian cultures it is thought that a Frog’s croaking brings the rain so they are associated with crop growth and good harvests.
In China the Frog is an emblem of Yin energy and thought of as good luck. Feng Shui practices recommend putting an image of a Frog in the east window of your home to encourage child birth and/or happy family life.
More Western and European views focus on the Frog’s three stages of development (egg, tadpole, fully formed amphibian) to symbolize resurrection and spiritual evolution. For these same reasons it is also a common Christian symbol for the holy trinity and resurrection. It is often seen in Christian art to express this symbolism.
In Egypt we see the Frog-headed Heket who is an Egyptian goddess of birth. This makes the frog in Egyptian legend a symbol of birth, rebirth and motherhood. The frog is also a lucky symbol in this culture. Many times, figurines of frogs are given to mothers expecting babies. This was done as a way to put a blessing upon a healthy happy new baby.
Frog a symbol of true love
It’s been said that you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. The meaning of this phrase is that you can’t judge something by the way it looks, your prince or princess charming may look average but have a heart that bears an overflowing and unending abundance of riches.
You will have to take time and to look closely enough to see the inner beauty of what they have to offer, the treasures will be hidden and you must earn the trust for them to be revealed to you.
In this way the inner beauty far outshines the outer beauty which can fade if outer beauty is not in touch with the realm of the heart.
A Frog becomes a prince when someone worthy takes the time to see you for what is within, for who you really are.
