Frog Symbolism & Meaning

Frog spirit brings us into a deeper connection with our feelings, perspectives and our ability to purge negativity from our lives be that “dis-ease” spiritual, mental or physical.

Frog cannot endure a toxic environment and challenges you to release those emotions (like anger, hatred, bitterness, etc.) that hold you back. These outlooks show up in a person’s aura like dark splotches and, in turn, decrease our natural protective and intuitive abilities.

Frog spirit often comes to people who are simply not taking care of themselves the way they should. Sometimes this relates to diet, exercise and lifestyle. In other cases it may relate to a relationship on which you’re spending too much energy with little return. In both cases it’s time for a change. Step back and take the time to consider new ideas and outlooks. Just like the tadpole, you’re about to grow into something new and wonderful.

The Goddess of love in Rome, Venus, held Frogs as sacred. This symbolism speaks of self-love too! In the story of the Frog prince we see the young maiden willing to give her hand in marriage to the Frog in order to save her mother. She was rewarded when the Frog turned into a handsome prince. Here we see remarkable selflessness and the ability to see beyond surface reality to potentials.

From a shamanic perspective 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. It is a joyous celebration of earth’s nurturing, cleansing and renewal. Let Frog help you find your soul song.

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.

Finally, if Frogs leave an area its regarded as a bad omen of some type of natural disaster ahead.

Frog Spirit Animal

When Frog makes an appearance as a Spirit Animal he comes to remind us of our connection to the earth and the seasons. You may find yourself going through a time of growth and transformation, guided by the Frog’s alluring song.

Another reason for Frog’s appearance could be your finances. When you’re in a jam, Frog Spirit seems to loosen purse strings and bring a bit of much welcome luck as it hops along your Path.

The symbolism for this idea stems from the tadpole’s similarity to a male sperm. Sperm is the “fertilizer” which helps bring about life – hence abundance of all types are accredited to Frog’s symbolic meaning.

Frog as an Animal Spirit Guide may be coaxing you toward a physical or emotional cleansing. Detox, cry until you find peace. Look for a mantra or chant aimed at purification and healing so you can sing with Frog back to wholeness.

Frog Totem Animal

Frog people have the capacity to “jump to it” and uncover opportunities. You face difficult situations swimmingly, something others find unique and remarkable.

Frog’s ties to home are tight, particularly with elders of the family. If Frog is your Totem you’ll want to build and strengthen your circle as that feeds your soul.

Those born with a Frog Totem have natural intuitive senses and require strong connections with the Spirit realm to maintain their power and vision.

As that bond between you, your Higher Self, Angels or the Divine strengthens so will your ability to give helpful advice. Perhaps this is due to Frogs’ uncanny hearing abilities. Because it is so acute, it’s said Frogs can “hear beyond the veil”.

    At this very moment i was giving myself a strong potential to confront my crush at school and hoped that he would not reject me and when i went to sleep i woke up to something landing on my leg of course i didn’t move because i was afraid to crush what ever landed on me at first i though it was the little moise that would visit me everynight to sleep next to head during rainy nights but when i looked it was a huge frog more like a green tree frog but he did have a little brown on him and it shoked me but of course how did he get in my room ? My window is still boarded up from irma and i have a house with three cats. I came to see what it meant for a frog to randomly appear and it seems i might get a little good luck with my crush at school.

    A frog landed on my head as I was driving. My windows were down. I swerved wondering what just fell on my head. It jumped off and went behind the seat. I got home and caught and released It back outside. I thought how odd that a frog would jump in my vehicle and land on my head. I knew it must have a significant meaning.

    My temporary living situation is in a camper. One morning I opened the kitchen blind and saw a large Cuban tree frog. It tilted it’s head and peered insidefor a few hours! It relocated and for the next several nigiht it stayed on the window over my bed. I didn’t see it for a few days and wondered where it went. Then I found it under my sink! I couldn’t allow it to stay in the camper because their slime coat is an irritant so I placed it on the underside of the camper and it’s now back on my bedroom window. The frog watches me. By law I am supposed to euthanize this creature but I feel it is trying to tell me something. Not sure what it’s message is but the past two years have been particularly difficult. Hoping it’s a sign of good things coming!

    A tiny tree frog and her partner have come to live with me. The female lets me get close to her. She’s a tiny thing. They left for a few weeks when I took down the pool and replaced it with a larger one and I was devastated. Then, two night ago,around midnight, I heard her familiar croaking. Last night I heard it at 3 a.m. I went out and found her and her mate sitting happiily on the pool’s edge. unstartled. I LOVE these two. I am so blessed.
