As a totem creature, the Caterpillar represents transformation, change, and determination. Caterpillar is patient, determinedly getting what it needs to do done while waiting for the right moment to transform into its next phase. Caterpillar helps us to focus, and prioritize tasks. It is a very helpful totem for anyone struggling to stay focused, prepared, or grounded! Caterpillar represents our ‘metamorphosis’ into our Higher Selves, but also represents strength – it takes a lot of strength to complete drastic, but necessary, changes in one’s life. Caterpillar reminds us that both the journey and the destination are equally important. Don’t lose sight of one or the other – appreciate both.
