More than 40 percent of the named insects in the world are beetles. There are more than 350,000 different species of beetles. Arguably, the most famous beetle of all is the dung beetle, the sacred scarab of ancient Egypt that was thought to push the sun over the horizon every morning. Because the sun rises and sets, the scarab became associated with death and resurrection. This daily renewal offers hope, no matter how dire the situation may be. Consequently, dreaming of a beetle is a sign that the future looks brighter than the present, and a positive attitude and hard work will make it a reality.
