What does it Mean when a Bird Poops on you? Is it a sign of Good luck?

There are many omens, beliefs, and prophecies regarding bird poop. There are also many spiritual associations and believed in messages too.

Symbolism is universal – we use symbolism for learning and self-discovery every day; whether that be in numerology, astrology or spiritual systems. Yet seemingly ‘random’ or unsynchronized experiences such as having a bird poop on you also hold a particular symbolic, and spiritual, meaning.

You may have heard of the “butterfly effect,” the natural occurrence that everything is part of a grand and interconnected design. All of nature and her species are connected and intrinsically affect one another, whether subtle and behind the scenes or more apparent and rooted in physicality.

Birds are also part of the grand design and can act as messengers. Bird poop is not just a mundane, unfortunate or negative experience; it also provides a deeper message, signal, and learning opportunity.

So, what does it mean when a bird poops on you? Is it a deeper sign of upcoming good luck? What do bird droppings actually mean from a spiritual perspective?

Bird Poop Omens: A sign of Good luck

is bird poop good luck?

The main omen associated with a bird pooping on you is that it is a sign of luck. Luck, prosperity and good fortune are all yours to come with this symbolic experience.

When a bird poops on you, symbolically you are provided a situation in which you have to slow down, look at yourself, your behaviors, actions, beliefs and life choices, and be honest with yourself.

An integral part of this experience is the ‘cleaning up’ stage, which intrinsically involves clearing. Cleansing, clearing, and transformation are a part of this good luck omen.

Some people assume it is bad luck and therefore a bad omen to have a bird poop on you. Yet this is the precise type of thinking which can prevent one from experiencing the luck and abundance to come.

How can we possibly receive all life and the universe has to offer when we are not open to receiving?

So, you are being asked to change your mindset in some way. Linking to this is the power of prophecy.

So, What does it mean when a Bird poops on you? Symbolism and Spiritual meaning

We have already briefly mentioned the butterfly effect, and bird poop links to this. Everything happens for a reason – life is always trying to send us signs and signals to point us in the right direction. Bird poop is not any different.

There is also the element of planet earth and our relation to it. Birds have a certain freedom which comes with their wings. They soar high above the sky, a sky which is often known to symbolize ‘the heavens’.

Thus, when a bird poops on you there is a symbolism of receiving luck from above, blessings from the heavens, and looking to the skies to see where you might be going wrong.

Are your life choices in alignment with the true you or your purpose? Are you on the right path? Are your actions and behaviors representative of where you actually want to be going?

Only you can sail your own ship. Bird poop teaches this message clearly.

On the other hand, spiritually you have been chosen to receive good fortune and blessings due to your kindness, purity, spirit, charity, selflessness and service, or wisdom. It means that there is something special and unique to you, and only you know what this is.

Perhaps you are devoted to some charitable, humanitarian or welfare cause, or maybe you are highly empathetic and take conscious steps to be more compassionate and mindful in daily life?

Perhaps you are a sensitive soul with strong values and ethics, and silently work behind the scenes to do good by others in some way?

Or, maybe you simply are a kind, sincere and spiritually-oriented being, committed to some practice or belief which involves being a catalyst for great change.

A bird pooping on you suggests that you have been noticed by god, spirit and the universe for your efforts and intentions. Nature knows, and the heavens are smiling down on you!

Other Beliefs and Prophecies: (On Bird droppings)

There are a number of old-wives tales/beliefs surrounding the bird droppings. Although some of them are culturally believed even today, some of them are simply passed as folklore from their ancestors.

Although there are other varying beliefs too, in most cultures it is commonly considered a sign of good luck, when a bird poops on you.


Even though I explained the entire spiritual meaning behind bird droppings, however being mindful of the type of bird, its spiritual/energetic meanings and associations can help you connect more powerfully to the wisdom and message of this unique and symbolic omen.

Everything is interconnected, and life does not have to be seen as negative or destructive.

Bird poop can always be cleaned, and in the process, there is an opportunity for great cleansing, clearing, and self – evolution. You are being shown good luck and fortune are on their way; but only if you open yourself up to the magic of the universe and align with a new way of being, and perceiving.
