Butterfly as a Tarot symbol
Butterflies have been a universal symbol of change and transformation for centuries. This is because butterflies go through a transformation process called metamorphosis, which goes through stages from egg to larva and then to caterpillar until it becomes a fully developed butterfly. It is truly an amazing transformation, especially when the worm-like caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly in all its glory.
Human beings go through many transformations, from infancy to puberty and then to old age. Just like the butterfly that has to struggle, human beings also have to go through challenges before they can become their perfect selves. In ancient times, butterflies were known to symbolize the human soul. In fact, the ancient Greek word “psyche” means “soul” or “butterfly”. Those who believe in reincarnation see butterflies as wandering human souls awaiting reincarnation or rebirth.
Butterflies also have mystical symbolism. Even dreams have different interpretations. When a dreamer sees a butterfly in his dream, it usually means that changes are coming, which are generally positive. It can also mean opportunities that will allow the dreamer to take a step forward. The butterfly is also a symbol of the fulfillment of destiny.
In tarot readings, butterflies appear on the Queen and King of Swords cards. It usually indicates a change in the thoughts of the questioner or someone close in the questioner’s life. The other tarot symbols of butterflies are: rebirth, immortality, freedom, family bliss, happiness, new hope and a journey of transformation.
