Bee Animal Totem Symbolism

Various traditions, and religions, believe that each Animal Totem has the qualities of the animal it represents. This means that it feeds the same way (although in an energetic way), it moves the same way, it fights the same, and it behaves the same, as a Bee would do in the physical world. Therefore, the best way to know what qualities your Animal Totem has, or why it is present beside you, it is to look at how the animal behaves in this physical plane.

However, these traditions also believe that your Animal Totem can foretell your destiny, or share insight into your life mission.

Spirit Animal

As a Spirit Animal, Bee represents balance, healing, and growth. You know how to make the most of your talents, and you understand how to properly use energy. You don’t like wasting your time on superficial things, be it conversions, or relationships that don’t work. You are very in tune with yourself, and with others around you. You are spiritually enlightened, and you will only grow from there.  

Native American Traditions

Native Americans associate Bees with serving the community, and celebrating life. They would often dress up like Bees, and perform various dances, to celebrate their lives, and their community.   

They would share gifts as a sign of compassion, and appreciation for the receiver. Bees symbolized happiness, caring, protecting, and nourishment in their lives.

Eastern Traditions

According to the Chinese Zodiac, you would have the Bee Animal Totem, if you were born under the Zodiac Sign of Capricorn, during the Year of the Rooster.

The Eastern Traditions see Bee as the symbol of life. Bees’ honey is seen as the nectar of gods. Not only was honey sacred to them, but they would use honey in alcoholic beverages. Also, in the old days, honey was seen as sacred, and as a symbol of wealth.

Eastern Traditions depicted Bees as symbols of rebirth, and rejuvenation. Their Shamans associated Bees with the heart chakra, and the Bee sting would be used in their spiritual practices to heal an ill person.

Celtic Mythology

The Celtic Traditions see Bees as the teachers of ancient wisdom. Bees represented the messengers of the spiritual realms, as they could travel to the Otherworld, and deliver messages from Gods themselves, to help humankind.

Some Traditions would treat Bees like family, praying to them, and talking to them about everything that was going on in their lives. Bees were sacred creatures, and as such, they were treated with the outmost respect. They believed that if someone were to offend the Bees, they would be hit by bad luck, which in some cases, meant death.

Christian Religion

Christian Religions associate Bees with Jesus Christ. They see in Bees the same attributes, like sweetness, and gentleness. They also depicted Bees as wise, strong, and just. Christians use Bees to symbolize positivity, activity, good order, society structure, and diligence.

Some tales suggest that Bees never sleep. Therefore, they often represent someone who dedicates their lives to work for their community, who is just, gentle, and has good morals.

What your Animal Totem indicates about:

Your personality

Bee Animal Totem indicates that you are someone who is very productive, patient, and balanced within themselves. You wouldn’t know what to do with yourself, if you had nothing to do all day. Even in your rest days, you are always doing something, like reading a new book, learning a new skill, helping someone out, etc. Rarely happens that you choose to do nothing all day, and it only happens when you need to recharge, or to enjoy the fruits of your hard work.

You do well in a community, so you always surround yourself with people. You don’t like to be solitary, and you rejoice in other’s presence. The meaning of life for you is all about building with other people, and cherishing friendships. You love sharing experiences, and being surrounded by good friends.

You always strive for growth, in the physical, spiritual, and mental aspect. You are open to every opportunity to learn something new, and become a better person. You are always expanding your knowledge, and you know how to apply every bit of new information on your projects, relationships, and your own self.

Your life at the current moment 

An Animal Totem is the Spirit Animal that accompanies you since the day you were born, until the end. Therefore, if Bee is your Animal Totem, it doesn’t indicate much about life at your current moment, unless it starts showing up in your dreams.

The Spirit Animal that guides you through certain events in your life, is usually an Animal Guide that chooses to walk with you for a limited period of time, until you learn your lesson, or you overcome the problem. It may also choose you, to help you amplify certain qualities that you need for the next phase in your life.

If Bee is the Spiritual Animal that chooses to accompany you, it is reminding you to be more productive, and work with others. If you have a dream, you won’t ever be able to manifest it, if you keep postponing the start day. There is no such thing as perfect timing, you just need to start now. You may also want to look at how you are relating to others, because a solitary mindset may not get you that far. No one has ever made it far, without counting on someone else, or trying to do everything on their own. You should start by writing down your goals, making a plan, and start working on it. If you need someone else’s skills, or expertise, make sure to find the right people for the job.

What does dreaming about your Animal Totem mean?

If you have a dream where a Bee is present,it usually indicates happiness, good luck, and prosperity. They are a certain sign that things will change for the better, and you may meet unexpected success in whatever you are working on.

If you see a group of Bees in your dream, it means that you need to organize your life. Maybe your routine is off, and you are procrastinating a lot. Maybe you are associated with people who don’t bring the best out of you, or that are holding you back from achieving what you want.

If Bees are chasing you in your dream, it means that you are running away from your responsibilities, or you have unresolved issues from your past.

How do you handle your life based on your Animal Totem?


If you have the Bee Animal Totem, it indicates that you seek balance in your relationships. The most important thing for you may be structure, respect, and growing together. You can only invest in a relationship for which you have a clear vision. You may want to talk things out with your partner since the very beginning, and you like to know for sure where you are headed. You tend to be open to any kind of relationship, be it committed, a time-pass, or an open relationship. However, you like to be straightforward on what you want, and what your partner is looking for.

Once in a committed relationship, you give your most. You are your partner’s best friend, as well as a lover, or even a husband, or wife, if it comes to that. If your relationship is anything else, but a committed one, you will still invest on it, but only as much as you think you should. You wouldn’t behave like a husband, or wife, if your partner wouldn’t give back at the same level.

The perfect partner for you would be someone who is honest, and is willing to invest in the relationship, as much as you invest on it. If you both decide you are going to be together for the time being, but you don’t see a future together, you both adjust, and behave at that level of commitment. However, if you both decide you are in a serious relationship, than you both expect from the other one to commit since the beginning. Also, your partner should be someone who has high self-esteem, and the same work ethic as you. You both will support, and encourage each-other to become the best person you can be.


Bee Totem indicates that you are someone who has the natural skills, and abilities to build successful businesses. You know how to build connections, and utilize those connections in your own interest. This doesn’t mean that you give nothing back, but you know how to balance out your relationships, so both parties benefit. Your skill to build a community around you, is very appreciated in the business world. You would waste a lot of talent if you worked for someone else, especially if they don’t pay you well. You know how to get the right people together, and how to manage them.

In your early years in the business world, you may get a job to pay off bills, while you work on your own projects. In some cases, those with the Bee Animal Totem, may have lots of job opportunities, but they won’t like any of them, because they don’t fit their criteria. If you can afford to build your dream business, and not get a job, then you better get to work. However, if you need a job, you can manage a hustle on the side. It will certainly take some sacrifices on your part, like long hours of work, no sleep, no parties, but it will pay off in the long run.

Regarding finances, Bee Totem represents that you will have as much as you work for. There will be no inheritance for you, or marrying into money. Not because you aren’t that lucky, but because you want to build your own legacy, so other’s money, is not really your money. Therefore, you are going to be as wealthy as you can, by yourself. If you will make sacrifices, and work on manifesting your dreams, you will be successful very soon. If you will postpone your dreams, or work a job, and settle in, you will live well, but not earn as much as you possibly could in your own business.

Relationship with yourself

Bee Animal Totem reveals your inner struggles, as well as your true self, which you may hide from others. You exercise your patience well, but sometimes it runs thin. You can exhaust yourself with people, or work, and eventually you run out of energy. You can’t stay still, and you can’t be doing nothing. You always want your mind preoccupied with something, or your hands building something.

Your biggest struggle is finding balance within yourself, because you don’t want to let others down, and you don’t want to procrastinate when you have work to do. The thing is, that you can’t pour from an empty cup. If you drain your own energy, you won’t be able to do things well, and in turn, you will only cause more damage than good.

You should learn how to retrieve, and honor your own body, mind, and soul. The world won’t end in a day when you do nothing. People will have to solve their own problems for themselves, and business won’t fail, if you take a day off. In fact, you may come up with new ideas, working on a higher vibration.

You should also learn how to keep people at a healthy distance, so they don’t drain your energy, or contaminate it. Not everyone is good for you, and not everyone has good intentions for you. If you feel toxic energy, you should not keep it close to you. Some people won’t change, no matter what you do.

How to honour or connect with your Animal Totem?

If you want to connect with your Bee Animal Totem, you can take a page from the book of the Native American Traditions. You don’t have to wear the skin of the Bee on you, but you can keep nice Bee sculptures at your work desk. You can have a beautiful artwork of the Bee printed at your blouse, or a paint of the Bee on your wall. You can also buy jewelry that has a Bee signature in it, like the head, or footprints.

You can use these objects to focus on during your meditation, in order to connect with Bee Animal Totem. During your meditation, you may want to call upon your Bee Animal Totem, and ask to be blessed with the qualities that you need at the moment.

Try to feel the specific quality amplifying in you. Act as being a Bee is your second nature. This is also how you honor your Spirit Guide, Bee Totem.

If you feel that you can’t visualize the Bee well, which is important for your meditation process to work, you can think about the qualities you want to embody, and try to feel those qualities growing in you. You have to embrace the Bee energy in all aspects of it: physically, energetically, spiritually, and emotionally. It may also help to watch a movie with Bee.


You may find that during the course of your life, other Spirit Animals will choose to walk with you for a while, to guide you in different areas of your life. It is possible, that while you have Bee Animal Totem, you can also be guided by other Spirit Animals. However, you will notice that your core values, the same qualities you share with the Bee, won’t change.

You will still be active, patient, productive, diligent, and a great friend. Different Spirit Animals help you see other paths, that only those can help, and guide through. They also help you develop other qualities, because the purpose is for you to grow.

For example, if you will be accompanied by Turtle Totem, which is there to help you develop your grounding skills, and encourage you to have faith in your dreams. Bee Totem will always be there, even if you won’t always have other Spirit Animals.
