The symbolic meaning of grasshopper and the various symbols of this great creature in the field of insects. As a cultural symbol, this insect is a prominent feature of Asian tradition. The Japanese, for example, associate their molting phase with the waxing and shrinking of the moon. Moreover, the Japanese cherish the songs of this creature (especially the long horned grasshopper) and believe in the moon from which they coax music.
In China, grasshoppers are considered as fertility symbols, especially the omen of a son’s birth (therefore, another reason for the son’s good luck symbol state is considered to be a precious gem in the family environment). In some areas of China, grasshoppers are kept as family pets. People think that grasshoppers embody the personality of the family members of the dead. Keeping these reincarnated souls in the form of grasshoppers ensures the prosperity of family members.
In ancient Greece, grasshopper was a symbol of status. Athenians decorate themselves with golden grasshopper combs and brooches as a symbol of nobility. The grasshopper is also a symbol of immortality. As we can see in Greek mythology, when Zeus granted immortality to Titus, Titus later became a grasshopper.
