Moths have long been considered to have prophetic significance, acting as messengers of the spirit world.
If a moth lands on you, or acts in an unusual way (for example is particularly friendly or appears to be looking for attention), or it appears repeatedly (at least 3 times in a short-period of time), it is trying to convey a message from the spirit world.

Are Moths Lucky?
Like a black cat crossing your path, you may wonder: is a moth a good or bad omen?
Let me answer this straight away. Moths, are a lucky omen. So, you can relax if one has visited your house or turned up in your dreams. I know some people consider black months, in particular, unlucky and a sign of death. However, this does an injustice to the little messenger and I’ll explain simply why below. In this article, we will look at the spiritual meaning and symbolism of moths in general, including black moths, white moths and brown moths.
What it Mean When a Moth Lands on You
This is your main message and applies when any kind of moth lands on you:
???? The moth is a mystical creature … he often appears at times of transformation. When the moth appears, it means big changes are kicking off in your life. Usually these changes are long overdue and necessary for your personal growth. You may welcome or resist what is coming, but either way events are inevitable and intended for your greater good. The moth is the Universe’s way of telling you to relax and accept the flow because there is a plan for you – even if you can’t see it yet.
What Does it Mean When a Black Moth Lands on You?
If the moth is black, then there is an additional message. Perhaps the moth lands on you or turns up in your house. Black is associated with psychic powers, mediumship and spiritual contact. This is why it is confused with ‘death’, even though it is not a sign of death. The beautiful black moth wants to say the spirit world is alive and is waiting for you to hear, see and connect with them.
You came into this world with strong psychic and intuitive sensitivity. When the moth appears it means you are ready to explore those spiritual gifts further, perhaps take a course or read more about it. Or if you are already working with your gifts, it is time to shine your light wider and brighter. Whatever you do, don’t ignore this message or think that being psychic is something other people do! It may even be that recent events have served to bring out those gifts or curiosity in you.
What is the Spiritual Meaning of Brown Moths?
Perhaps a brown moth appears in your house, and you ‘felt’ there was a significance to the visit. Firstly – never shrug off those feelings as imagination. It is important to recognise the signs of the hidden world when they communicate.
Brown moths signify that positive practical changes are coming – this could be a house move, new job or relationship. Your life is being overhauled and this is the start of a deep spring cleaning!
Your physical appearance and health can also improve for the better at this time. Brown moths are a particularly good omen for weight loss and cosmetic procedures.
Do White Moths Have a Spiritual Meaning?
A baby is preparing to enter your life. Consider the white moth an Annunciation, like the visit of Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary. The moth brings you this message: “Mommy [or daddy or grandma], “I’m coming”.
Two Further Messages Of The Moth
These messages are only meant for a few people. Only take the message if it instantly resonates with you!
As some species of moths do not live long enough to eat, they never develop mouths. This is why moths are associated with weight loss and weight gain goals. If you are undergoing treatment for an eating disorder, or alternatively weight loss surgery, a visit from a month is a sign that you are protected while in the process of healing.
Moths are attracted to bright lights – and this messenger asks: Do you desperately want to shine your light? To shine in your life purpose? Perhaps you want to perform or talk in front of other people? Or simply inspire others. The guidance is to follow your heart and believe in your dream.
