Symbolism and Feng Shui of Cicada

Since ancient times, the cicada has been seen as a symbol of resurrection, an association that owes to its fascinating life cycle. The Cicada is considered as a summer insect in Japan and China, because they usually go under the soil during winter, and go out of it during summer. This is a sign of rebirth, thus it was usually used to symbolise rebirth in Japan and China.

Most Feng Shui experts will tell you that a Cicada is a Feng Shui symbol of immortality and protection against backstabbers. This is largely due to the fact that a Cicada is an insect that can live up to 20 years; it’s a kind of insect that has the longest life span. Furthermore, it is said that a Cicada’s large eyes also warns it of possible predators, thus many Feng Shui experts will associate it as a protection against backstabbers or politicking.

Also because of the ‘rebirth’ aspect of the Cicada, it makes carrying a jade cicada a good Feng Shui protector when one is undergoing a big change in one’s life. If you are about to have a career change, or you’re about to marry, or moving to a new house, graduating from school, migrating to a new place or country, carrying or wearing a jade cicada will help ensure that everything goes smoothly.
