In Chinese history the grasshopper is often associated with enlightenment. Thus, it represents some form of Spiritual freedom. A grasshopper mind (one which flits all over the place) shows an inability to settle to anything and can actually be seen in dreams as a grasshopper. We should perhaps concentrate more on important matters so we can achieve our aims. The grasshopper is a symbol of freedom and capriciousness, and in dreams it can often indicate a bid, or our need, for freedom. You might also like to consult the entry for Insects.
