The Dragonfly in Celtic Lore Born on the surface of the water, she transforms into a creature of the air. The Dragonfly weightlessly darts about like a miniature dragon of the faerie realm. The Dragonfly symbolises transformation along with self-realisation. Celtic myth has nearly 23 different names for the Dragonfly. Many poems are written about it and are mentioned in many Celtic stories, legends, and folklore. Celtic legends talk about dragonflies as magical beings. Its wings are iridescent and change colours depending on how light falls on them. The eye of the Dragonfly can see a vision in 360-degrees-symbolising the human mind that seeks beyond its limitations, above the mundane. To a warrior, a dragonfly tattoo represents agility, power, speed, victory, and courage. A dragonfly crossing your path means to live life in its fullness. Many Irish, Scottish, and Gaelic legends talk about the magic of dragonflies. They represent overcoming delusions about the self. Many describe the dance of the Dragonfly as the fact that it can hover or fly backward. Its magnificent eyes are receptors to everything that falls in its vision. Celts talk about the symbolism of dragonflies in dreams – it portends transformation. Its flight is short, belonging to summer and autumn, yet it teaches man much about himself.
