Butterfly Dream Interpretation and Meaning

Share

The butterfly is symbolic of an intense transformation for the better and as such, it is associated with the soul and resurrection. It is sometimes thought to be an omen of death in the family. When associated with death, the dream butterfly appears to prepare the dreamer for the loss of loved one.

The colors of the dream butterfly are important indicators of its meaning, as is its size – the bigger the butterfly, the greater impression you will make in a social situation.  The dream butterfly suggests that you move more lightly in some endeavor and expect things to change as opportunities arise. The butterfly indicates that change is inevitable, but it does not have to be traumatic.

If you dream of a butterfly flying through the air, it means that you need to share yourself with the world to a greater degree. A flying butterfly also means you may receive news from far-away friends.

The butterfly in a dream is a symbol of creativity, spirituality, and romance. It represents the Mind, and if you dream of a butterfly moving among flowers and grasses, it symbolizes prosperity. However, the dream butterfly may be telling you that you should become more settled in your relationships and move from one person to another so quickly.
To see two butterflies flying together in your dream indicates happiness in marriage.

The fact that a butterfly is the result of a transformation process that involves the stages of an egg, larva, and cocoon means that any of these stages could appear in your dream. If you dream of butterflies in the egg stage, it suggests that a change in your life is still in the idea phase, while dreaming of butterfly larva means that you must make a decision about a certain situation. If you dream of a butterfly cocoon, it represents the work you are doing to transform your dream into a reality. Finally, the adult butterfly appearing in your dream suggests a greater sharing of your ideas.

  • I had a dream about two big kinda ugly black and yellow butterflies land in my mom. It's also been almost a year since that dream and doctors are telling my mom she needs to be in the hospital bad. Do you think I should tell her and do you think that's an omen?

      • On the day you posted this I was in a almost fatal car accident and I believe and recall almost leaving my body but I begged for my life. I normally wouldn’t comment but it so symbolic. Last night I dreamt of a butterfly flying to my hair. I going to believe that this means good fortune. My injuries have been long lasting but I’m proud to still be here for my family and continue to try to enjoy the world .

  • I deamt that, I saw it in its caterpillar stage, that it was about to cocoon. And as it did that, I could see through it, and I was watching the wings form, and when it was just about to come out, I took it outside, and watched it come out. It fluttered to the ground, in the green grass, and I put my finger next to it. And it crawled on my finger, then it fluttered away. And I woke up.... what does that mean?
