The Butterfly represents transformation and the ability to accept change
What does dreaming about The Butterfly mean?
Dreaming of a butterfly indicates your need to settle down. Butterflies also means creativity, romance, joy and spirituality. You may be undergoing a transformation into a new way of thinking.
Fertility: Drawing The Butterfly can be a sign of pregnancy, present or future. It can also represent a very young child or a mother-to-be in your life. More symbolically it can mean seeds of an idea or project that need your attention.
Color: A card that shows us the beauty of life. Feeling fit and healthy. Loving relationships. Balance in everything. Sometimes a warning not to throw it all away! Occasionally a warning not to see things in black and white.
Air: The Butterfly may suggest someone whose head is in the clouds or who is full of hot air. On a spiritual level it represents intuition and may be a sign of developing gifts or abilities.
The Butterfly signifies someone not takings things seriously or a person or situation that is flitting from one thing to the next. It can also suggest a desire for change or travel.
Upright Meanings: originality, foolishness, adventure, youth, pleasure, spontaneity, lack of commitment, travel, idealism, opportunity, innocence, beginnings possibilities, freedom, carelessness, thoughtlessness
The Butterfly is generally a positive card indicating new beginnings. If it appears in your readings it could mean that you are on the verge of an exciting, unexpected new adventure. Your new adventure will bring you along a path which may require you to make a leap of faith but you will grow as a result of this new experience. This new adventure could be a literal new adventure, like travelling to a place you’ve never been before. The change this card can bring will usually be a welcome one. While The Butterfly is generally a positive card, its appearance in a reading can also indicate that you need to take the time to look before you leap.
Reversed Meanings: hesitation, bad choice, indecision, apathy, distraction, carelessness, injustice, irrationality, stupidity, negligence, lack of fun, recklessness
Even when reversed, The Butterfly is an indicator of newness; as well as the purity and open-hearted energy of a child. This is generally considered a positive card, with the caveat that it’s important to take time to be sure that you are ‘looking where you’re going.’ In reversal, The Butterfly can show that there is a need for a new beginning, but that there is some hesitancy about making it happen.
