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.
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.
