CICADAS: RENEWALand SOLAR MAXIMUM

This year millions/billions of cicadas that were buried will reemerge from the Mother Earth along the East Coast of America. The cicadas will spring forth this summer after 17 years of “sleep”: cicadas decides when they wan to come forth. Their re-birthing cycle ranges from 1- 17 years. This is very significant in numerology and symbol because 17 represents 8 or feminine energy or solar energy and the the totem for the cicadas is reward for those who have been patience. Also, cicadas love the heat of the sun, and the Sun is the number eight card in the TAROT. This year we in a solar maximum.

Cicada Totem

The Cicada is a symbol of rebirth and longevity. People with this totem are strong communicators and often find rewarding opportunities as the result of patience and persistence. Their callings sometimes come later in life after a period of seclusion. Cicada teaches communication through music – it’s song is easily recognizable and noticed by others. Cicada also speaks of the ability to “shed one’s skin” and emerge as something new and different in life. Coming out of your shell and expressing yourself authentically are themes of this totem.

 

Personal Reflection…

Cicada remains underground for much of its life before emerging. When cicada appears to you it speaks of a need to come out from hiding, to break free of what restricts you. Cicada loses its shell and symbolizes our ability to come out from the shadows and let our inner being break free from oppression. Cicada has a distinctive sound all its own – use cicada’s wisdom to inspire you to share your own voice.
