What Does The Dragonfly Symbolize?
I love dragonflies. I think they’re beautiful and graceful and I love the transparency of their wings. This is a somewhat recent fascination for me. I know that I was drawn to them because they represent transformation. And, holy shit, there’s some major transformation going on in my life.
Tomorrow is my last day at my corporate job. I’ve been there for nine years, longer than any other job ever. Tuesday will be my first “real” day at my new job – my very own business. I’ve been working on my business, Amazing Outlook Coaching, part-time for almost a year. I cut back to four days a week at my “day job” last July to help with juggling work, new gig and continued training. It was still too much. So, I’m rewiring!
The dragonfly symbolizes wisdom, change, transformation, light and adaptability in life. The dragonfly shows up in people’s lives to remind them that they need to bring a lightness and joy to their life.
The dragonfly is also a symbol of the “realm of emotions” from joy and happiness to melancholy, sadness, anger, jealousy and all of the other emotions. The dragonfly is considered the symbol of transformation because of the way that it grows. Dragonflies are born in the water and begin to grow there, but then they move into the air and learn to fly. Dragonflies also have incredible flight patterns and are able to change their direction of flight quickly without much effort. They look effortless as they glide and fly through the air. This is meant to inspire and motivate people to be flexible and adaptable in the situations that they come across in life.
A person who has the dragonfly as their spirit animal or totem will be most inclined to delve into their emotions and show their truest colors. This person will also tend to keep a light positive outlook even when things look grim and dark. When a person feels stuck in a situation or needs to find a new perspective then they should call on the dragonfly spirit animal and the dragonfly power.
My name is Nancy McKay and I coach women, most of them are over 50, who are going though a major transition in their lives and don’t know what the hell happened. They’re feeling lost and afraid because they don’t know what their future looks like. I help them figure out how to feel happy and at peace with their life.

One of best compliments I’ve received was “You helped me in seeing things from a different lens – I can’t believe I learned so much in one meeting! I can’t wait to see what else I learn from you.” Helping women make a shift in their thinking and in their lives thrills me to pieces and drives everything I do.
