Did you know that the starfish represents one of the most important traits that humans have? It symbolizes renewal and regeneration. Starfish can grow back limbs. When they are attacked by a predator (like a crab for example) they will detach their own arm to free themselves from the attacker. They will also sometimes just drop one of their arms to distract the predator. This gives them a better chance to escape. Isn’t that amazing? And if the lost arm has a piece of the starfish’s central region, that one arm can grow and become a new starfish altogether! The only thing that’s constant in life is change. And with change comes renewal and regeneration.
