Just take a look at all the butterfly paraphernalia around everywhere.
Many people see the butterfly as a symbol of transformation and maybe fluidity as well, since butterflies apparently live only on a diet of fluids including pollen, so they could be considered fluid creatures I guess...go with the flow, and all that kind of thing.
Because they are mainly creatures ruled by lunar light, which to me represents intuition.
They are insects of transformation, just like the butterfly as well, so they both have that theme in common.
Unfortunately one particular movie has given moths a bad rep...but hey, what about "The Butterfly Effect"?
I see moths as more of a spiritual insect than a butterfly,
because they are constantly striving for the light in the darkness.
And even though the man-made light can fool them quite often,
I also see that as a metaphor to be wary of man-made cults trying
to be substitutes for the real light of the universe.
|Moths also have that Donnie Darko theme going as well ;-)|
