Scarab & What It Means
The scarab beetle is found in the art and mythology of many cultures across
the globe. It was an important part of ancient Egyptian life because it was considered magical.
The early Egyptians thought that scarab beetles pushed the sun across the sky and carried the solar system on their backs. It was because of these beliefs that the scarab beetle became synonymous with strength and power, and also became closely associated with their sun god.
It was this relationship with the sun god, and the process of sunrise and sunset, that started the association with cycles and changes. The scarab beetle became a symbol for change, more importantly positive change. Along with positive change, it became a symbol for good fortune, personal growth, good health, creativity, strength, and prosperity.
