Meaning of dreaming about butterflies

  • Dreaming of butterflies is interpreted, in a general way, with luck. It can be a sign that something positive will happen or that there will be some positive change. This idea of ​​change is very significant in these dreams, because it is precisely the transformation from worm to butterfly that demonstrates evolution for the better, the appearance of beautiful colorful wings that also give the insect freedom. Despite this pleasant meaning of joy and peace, butterflies do not always appear as the bearer of good news, so it is worth paying attention to the following meanings that are more specific to different contexts.
  • Dreaming of one or more butterflies flying among flowers and abundant vegetation means that you are going to get what you have been wanting for a long time. It is true that it will not be easy, because you will have to fight for it, but if you really try, you will get what you propose. This is one of the positive dreams, because in addition to indicating prosperity, it also shows the honesty of your intentions.
  • When a young girl dreams of butterflies flying around her it is because a very happy and lasting love is predicted for her, she may have to kiss a couple of toads before she finds Prince Charming, but she will soon find her better half. If this is your case, do not worry and let things flow, you are a sweet person who deserves to receive the same affection from that special person that you are yet to meet.
  • If you dream of butterflies flying around you but you do not receive good vibrations, it may be due to a change in meaning compared to the previous case. In this case, they are understood as a signal to make us see our inadequate way of acting in some aspect of our life. If this dream has occurred to you on more than one occasion, you will have to stop to check your conscience and find the problem. It can be related to both work and family problems, friends or partner.

In this dream, the color of the butterflies can help us better understand the nature of our mistake. If they are white butterflies it is because you have made mistakes out of sheer ignorance, which should not be confused with a lack of knowledge or critical thinking, which is represented by yellow butterflies. Finally, when these are red it is because you have created conflicts because of your impulsive nature.

  • The butterflies in bright colors and different sizes, mixed and flying may have dreams many meanings, although most of them are associated with frivolous people and materialistic fixing in material aspects or live in a bubble that makes them them this shape. In other cases, it is simple happiness for having one of the best moments of your life. As you can see, the meanings can be very contradictory or strange for the same dream, so it is very important that you take a few minutes to find the true meaning of your dream.
  • When in dreams several butterflies appear trapped in a jar or in any other container, it is because in real life one does not act freely. You may be letting yourself be influenced by someone around you, although that other person’s intention may not be that. You will have to make an effort to recover your personality and always say what you think, without offending of course.
  • Catching a butterfly can have different meaning depending on the dreamer, although the two most common cases are associated with single people or with a partner. In the first case, it will mean the appearance of a short but intense romance that may make you change your mind and see things differently. On the other hand, if you already have a partner and you dream of catching a butterfly, it may be due to the presence of an infidelity in the relationship.
  • Finally, dreaming of nocturnal butterflies of an intense black color is not a good thing. It can refer to people who are so generous and willing to help that they sacrifice themselves to the point of being harmed themselves or to people who tend to act impulsively and therefore thoughtlessly, which leads them to have problems of all kinds such as with legality for example.
