    Butterflies are extremely delicate insects that have a rich symbolic meaning. However, not everyone is aware of this. What does it mean when a butterfly lands on you? Be sure to check it out.

    How to Interpret a Butterfly Landing Over You?

    It is definitely a good sign. A butterfly perched on your hand or arm does not mean anything bad. It can be interpreted as a signal to make changes. Everything negative will soon transform into something better and positive.


    However, such a change will not come on its own. You will have to make some effort to finally move forward and stop being stuck in a sad reality. A caterpillar will not transform into a beautiful butterfly on its own. For that you need energy and motivation to move forward. Moreover, one should not be afraid of change, as it is a breath of fresh air and definitely brings something good to life.


    There is another interpretation of a butterfly that lands on someone. Well, some believe that it is a sign from a loved one who necessarily wants to contact you or give you some message.

    What Do Butterflies Symbolize?

    Butterflies, through their ability to metamorphose and transform, have quite a rich symbolic meaning.

    • In ancient Greece, the entire life cycle of a butterfly was interpreted as life, death and resurrection. In addition, its transformation from a caterpillar to an adult specimen, reminded the Greeks of the exit of the human soul from the body.
    • Above all, it signifies transformation, as well as transfiguration. It can be a healing, an inner transformation, a physical transformation, the entry into maturity or the beginning of a new stage of life.
    • It is important to remember that the butterfly is also a symbol of death, transience and the fragility of life.
    • Meanwhile, the Japanese believe that seeing one butterfly in the house augurs the imminent arrival of a friendly visitor. A larger number of butterflies, on the other hand, is not a good sign.
    • The Chinese, on the other hand, see a pair of flying butterflies as a symbol of love.
    • Interestingly, in the English county of Devon it was believed that in spring one should kill the first butterfly spotted. This was supposed to protect against bad luck.
