Did you find a grasshopper in your house?
Have you seen grasshoppers in your path lately?
We all know in feng shui, everything in your home (or in your life!) has meaning.
The same is true with manifestation – if you’re seeing things cross your path, they could be a sign that your manifestation is coming or that the Universe is communicating with you!
So what is the feng shui meaning of a grasshopper in your path or in your house?
Grasshopper Meaning in Feng Shui
In feng shui, the grasshopper symbolizes good fortune and good luck coming your way.
It also symbolizes protection from enemies when placed near the front door.
It also represents happiness, a long life, fertility, virtue, health, prosperity, and wisdom.
You can place a grasshopper image or statue anywhere in your home to enhance auspicious energy and attract good luck!
Other Grasshopper Symbolism and Meanings
Seeing a grasshopper in your house or in your path can mean change is coming.
It can also mean that you are meant to take a leap of faith or make a courageous decision you’ve been putting off making.
Grasshoppers can jump far distances with precision (leaping from grass blade to grass blade.)
They are agile and only jump forward.
Seeing a grasshopper in your dreams or in weird places can be a sign from the Universe that it’s time to make those changes you’ve been thinking of making.
Sometimes grasshoppers are mistaken for locusts because they can swarm and cause devastation to crops.
Locusts of course have a long history of being bad omens or causing plagues, so it’s easy to assume grasshoppers have the same meaning.
But they don’t! (Locusts are part of the grasshopper species, but grasshoppers aren’t locusts. It’s confusing, I know.)
Instead, seeing a grasshopper in your home is thought to be a good omen.
And of course, the symbolism is what you make it.
If you ask the Universe for a sign that you’re making a good decision or that your manifestation is coming, and the sign you ask for is a grasshopper, then that is a good omen for you!
There is no inherently good or bad omen – it’s all the meaning you give it!
Seeing a grasshopper in your home or in your path can signify:
- good health
- symbol of good luck
- good news coming your way
- good omen of things to come
- following your inner voice
- taking a leap of faith
- enjoying a long life
- eternal youth
- making a dramatic change in your life
- triumphing over your enemies or problems in life
How to Use Grasshopper Symbolism in Feng Shui
You can use images of grasshoppers or home decor items containing grasshoppers to bring the symbolic energy of the grasshopper to any area of the bagua.
Using the grasshopper meaning together with feng shui can harness that energy and create it where you need it the most!
Use grasshopper imagery in each area of the bagua for a specific purpose.
Health Area – to increase health and longevity
Career Area – to help you take a leap of faith in your career or call in a new job.
Knowledge and Wisdom Area – to increase wisdom and help you listen to your inner voice.
Family and Legacy Area – to attract good fortune and auspicious energy to your entire family.

Near the Front Door – to attract a new opportunity or to protect your home from negative energy.
In your Garden – to attract good fortune and fresh Chi into your home
Before using the grasshopper for feng shui purposes, make sure to set your intention!
Every time you place a feng shui cure in your home, it should have a specific purpose to help you call on that energy in your home.
Of course, you can use it for general purposes, like health and well-being for your family and household.
Or if you have a specific thing you are trying to call in, like a new job or money for a specific purpose, you can set that intention and ask the Universe to send it to you.
Use the grasshopper item as a reminder that the Universe is bringing you what you want (and more!)
Once the Universe has helped you with your specific intention, you can use the grasshopper for a new intention, or just keep it as a reminder that the Universe will always respond when you ask.
▶ Find a grasshopper you love. It can be a piece of artwork, an image, a home decor object, a pendant or jewelry – anything will work as long as you love it!
▶ Set the intention that the grasshopper is going to help you make the change you want to make.
If you have a specific purpose, like a new job or protection from negative energy, you can use that intention.
If you just have a general intention, like more abundance or good fortune, then that works too!
▶ Feel the feelings of having what you want.
▶ Set the intention that the grasshopper is holding that intention for you and that it will call that energy into your home and life!
▶ Place the grasshopper in the area of the bagua that is associated with what you want! It is done!
Your grasshopper will hold your intentions and help them come into your life.
If you are using a grasshopper pendant or jewelry, you can also wear it or place it somewhere that has significance for you and it will hold your intentions.
