Libra + Rabbit



Those born under the sign of the Butterfly are sweet, sensitive, caring, and generous. They have a deep affection for friends and family that almost matches their deep affection for nice things! Butterflies enjoy having nice homes, clothes, cars, and other luxuries. They have great taste in art and fashion and don’t like to leave home without looking good. This is an exceptionally easy-going sign whose struggles in life are almost entirely internal. Just as they care about their physical appearance, Butterflies are careful about what impression they give off socially.

Butterflies do not engage in conflict of any kind. They are quick to walk away from uncomfortable situations and while they are exceptionally sympathetic listeners, they cannot deal with true suffering or misery. Tense or upsetting events will push a Butterfly away quicker than anything else. Though they might not understand why, members of this sign gravitate toward peace and serenity in all situations.

In the animal kingdom, the butterfly begins as a caterpillar and transforms dramatically later in life, moving directly from crawling to flying. It’s no surprise that humans often use the life of a butterfly as a metaphor for growth and life transformation. In the Primal Zodiac those born under the sign of the Butterfly are already in the latter part of their spiritual growth. If our souls live many lifetimes over, then they only return as a Butterfly when much of their spiritual development has already taken place. For this reason members of this sign are often considered “old souls” who appear to have an understanding of life that is much deeper than their age would suggest.

Butterflies weigh every situation out carefully. They won’t make a move until they have measured all the possibilities. At the same time, this is a sign that longs for excitement and adventure. Butterflies constantly fluctuate between longing for a life of simple comforts and a life of unexpected mystery and passion. Despite seeming care-free, members of this sign often secretly wish that life was more like the movies, which is part of the reason that they are suckers for an epic adventure or love story.


Butterflies are among the best friends you could ever have. They are caring and supportive and always willing to lend a helping hand. Those born under this sign have excellent insights into human nature and always offer good advice or a sympathetic ear. Butterflies will be there when you need them, but don’t expect them to take part in your battles. Angry or chaotic relationships are toxic to this sign, and they will avoid adversity at all costs. This includes telling you when you’ve done something to upset them. More forthright signs must remember that a hurt Butterfly will escape rather than fight back, which can make relationships complicated for those who don’t know that something is wrong.

For a sign that likes to avoid drama, Butterflies sure seem to have a strange way of dealing with love. One would expect members of this sign to be passive and accepting but in love Butterflies tend to be pickier than most. This is the one area where being an “old soul” does not apply. Those born under this sign tend to be judgmental of others to the point of being superficial. Appearances are important to a Butterfly and while they don’t expect others to share their refined sensibilities, they do expect it of potential love partners. Butterflies also deep down long for romance and passion like one would find in books and movies, which often leads to unrealistic expectations about real life. Unless they can learn to temper their expectations, members of this sign are in danger of ending up disappointed in love.

Careers & Goals

It should be no surprise that Butterflies excel at making people, places, and things look good. Their natural affinity for beauty makes careers such as beautician, hairdresser, and interior designer perfect fits for this sign. Butterflies also love art and many are talented artists. Not all, however, enjoy the self-selling that goes with making a career out of art, which is why many members of this sign prefer working indirectly in the art world. Careers in art and antique dealing, for example, allow the business-adept Butterfly to play a somewhat structured role in the creative world.

Their cool and collected nature allows Butterflies to succeed in other areas, such as politics. The ability to put on a good face in hard times is a hallmark of this sign. They also tend to stay out of trouble and have an honest compassion for others. Those who find politics their calling will have great success if they can handle the conflicts inherent in that career path.
