Butterflies are symbols of the soul, of transformation, of the beauty that comes after the chaotic state of the transformative cocoon. Fritillary is the name of a species of butterfly – there are many types in this family. The name refers to its checkered pattern.
The butterfly is a symbol for the soul, for beauty and for hope.
The transformation process that takes the caterpillar through the chaotic disassembling into its reassembling as a beautiful being of the air has long been a symbol of hope for humanity going through periods of change.
If a butterfly lands on you, it is especially meaningful for your own sympatico energy of the moment.
This is a Fritillary Butterfly – a large group so-called for their checkered wings.
