If you watched the debate, you noticed a fly stuck to Pence’s head for two minutes. I believe that flies have a place in nature’s balance, so with no intent to malign the fly, I share the symbolism of what we saw last night.

When the fly spirit animal makes its way into your life, this usually serves as a warning that there’s danger lurking somewhere.

It means to catch your attention when you are spending too much of your time with someone or on something that has a destructive influence.

The fly meaning brings the focus to anything that’s causing harm to your life, whether of your own choosing or not. An example of this is giving in to societal pressures and indifference.

Just like the cricket spirit animal, the meaning of the fly also speaks about hate, spite, malice, or blame. It buzzes to be heard and flies overhead annoyingly until you are forced to swat or kill it with anything you can get your hands on.

The fly totem has also been known to represent lies, gossip, excuses, and anything that’s dirty or impure.

However, before you dismiss the fly as nothing but bad and undesirable, the fly symbolism also speaks about cures for sicknesses (just like the deer symbolism).

The meaning of the fly also serves as a reminder that you reap what you sow.

Interpret as you will but I do wonder how a fly got into the debate. Perhaps Ruth Bader Ginsberg watches and speaks from above. Enjoy and savor this precious new day!! The good and righteous continue to buzz.

I suggest we make it take a fly to lunch day. It will be a cheap and gratitude full date.

As David Frum wrote today: Through all of the scandals and the crimes and the disasters of the past four years, Mike Pence was the man who pretended not to notice. And now there was a fly on his head, and he pretended not to notice that too.

  1. Love this – thank you! Love all your insights, but I never stopped to wonder what message the fly was bringing. My first thought was that a fly house and had landed on – not in – my TV. I never considered a fly a spirit animal. Now I realize there are so many more levels to consider Perspective is so interesting.


  2. I agree!! A friend sent it to me, and I was amazed at how appropriate it was. Yes, perspective is so interesting. I also appreciate that house flies have compound eyes composed of thousands of individual lenses. We’re being shown how to see. 🙂


  3. I, too, thought it was on my screen, not on Pence. Once I realized, I laughed, as he can ignore anything even a fly on his head when he’s working so hard to look wise and in control. As we know, Mother Nature bats last. 🙂
