I don’t know if it’s the same as you, but for three consecutive years, I have noticed that as soon as Spring comes, or the Easter holidays with it, a huge transformation occurs withing me. It’s as if something huge has shifted, my thoughts, deeds, everything…As you know, the butterfly is the symbol of transformation. When a butterfly lays eggs, they hatch in the form of beautiful caterpillars, who then feed and grow at rapid speed. When they are fully grown, they pupate in what is called a chrysalis. When metamorphis is complete, the pupal skin opens, the adult insect climbs out, and an absolutely stunning piece of natural artwork, the butterfly, flies off and makes its journey throughout our beautiful nature.
They are mostly around in Spring, and on a sunny day, you can see them flying around, going from flower to flower. They are lovely to look at and admire, just like we should look within ourselves and try to discover exactly what happened, and why it happened. It’s as if our year actuall starts off now in March/April. This makes sense, actually, as the astrological calendar starts now, within the star sign of Aries.
As I said above, every time I go through the month of April, there’s a new surge in me, which makes my perspective towards life change completely. It’s as if I am forced to grow. I meet people who become a part of me, or meet someone I haven’t spoken to for a very long time. This has been happening to me for the past few years, and I can’t begin to explain what an affect it has in me.
I know that it has the specific purpose of transforming the way I live, the way I feel, or even how I relate to other people. I begin to see things differently, and even behave adversely. It is at most strange, and yet powerful and wonderful!
I believe that it is absolutely important to go within and just let things happen. Let nature do its wonders, unto us, as it does to the birds and the bees and the amazing butterflies. Spring is a substantial time for spiritual growth and expansion, so let us take in everything we can and just adapt to these extraordinary changes.
