Dragonfly symbolism

Dragonflies are often seen as symbols of good luck, new beginnings, and change. If you see a dragonfly, take it as a sign that something positive is on the horizon. Embrace change and trust yourself. Let the dragonfly spirit animal guide you through life.

Further, the Native Americans perceived dragonflies as the “souls of the dead” so a dragonfly visitation around a loved one's death could well signify the loved one's soul taking form in the spirit of dragonfly. It offers the assurance their soul is free.
