What Do Frogs Symbolize?

Frogs have many symbolic meanings including cleansing, healing, renewal, rebirth, fertility, abundance and metamorphosis. The frog is generally associated with the water element and carries the cleansing properties of the element.

As a power animal, the frog serves to remind a person of the ever changing nature of his life and the support that can be found during times of change. Because the frog has the ability to go from water to earth, it is believed that as a power animal the frog contains the magic and properties of both elements. Some Native American tribes believed that the spirit of the frog could be called upon to summon rain or other weather changes.
