Medicine wheel

Keywords: changing,- deep feelings,- depth,- reflection,- adaptability,- loving,- regenerating,- water clan. Description: In the system of the medicine wheel, the frog clan is the one associated with the element of water. People born in the moon of the great winds (February 19 to March 20), the moon of the powerful sun (June 23 to July 22) and the moon of the first frosts (October 24 to November 21) all belong to the frog clan. Water is a flowing, changing and renewing as well as transforming element. The frog itself embodies transformation, as it begins its life as a tadpole and only takes on its final form after a long period of time and corresponding development. It is a small, four-legged animal with long, powerful hind legs that enable it to make great leaps. The frog or water clan is the clan of emotions, of the heart, of deep feelings, of compassion and thoughtfulness. Frog clansmen bring new life and deeper feelings to a project. They are also able to heal, both physically and emotionally. They are usually very creative people who sometimes accept change more often than is good for them. Their feelings are so deep that they sometimes have to hold them all back and accumulate them. General meaning: exploring your feelings,- change,- working with your feminine nature,- working with your sexual nature,- releasing feelings. Association: "Naked frog", small child. Transcendent meaning: a revelation of your emotional life,- indications of deep change or transformation.

Psychological

The frog is a symbol of fertility and eroticism. In dreams, it can also represent an aspect of the character that is to be changed. The frog appears very rarely in men's dreams, but all the more often in the dreams of girls or women. In these dreams, the frog has the same meaning as in the fairy tale of the Frog King. Only when the princess has fed the frog and warmed it in her bed does it become a prince. In dreams, this is interpreted as follows: only when the impersonal and cold side of sexuality is embedded in the warmth of a spiritual relationship with a partner does the dreamer achieve complete fulfillment. Many people associate a frog with a visible pattern that reflects human growth to perfection. The stage of growth in which the dreamer sees the frog in his dream symbolizes the stage of development he ascribes to himself. Another interpretation is that the frog can live both in water and on land. In evolutionary terms, it is therefore a transitional animal. In dreams it can therefore also appear as a symbol of change, which refers either to the personality or to the living conditions - often associated with positive promises of recognition, gain and love. It may indicate the overcoming of an aversion, and if it jumps merrily, our heart may leap for joy because we will be lucky in our endeavors. If it jumps away, it may be a sign that brother recklessness has been our guest and has taken some money out of our pockets. If you step on a frog (or a toad), you want to demonstrate your power over weaker people in waking life.

Spiritual

On a spiritual level, the frog in a dream stands for transformation.

Artemidoros

Frogs herald jugglers and buffoons, but are favorable to people who live off the crowd. I know a house slave who dreamed that he showered frogs with slaps in the face,- he took over his master’s house management and commanded the servants in the house,- the pond meant the house, the frogs meant the servants, but the slaps meant the office of overseer.
