The butterfly is the Celtic Zodiac for those born between September 30th thru October 27th. Those born under this sign are said to be extremely social hence the phrase, “Social Butterfly”. They are known to have a joyful personality and a cheery disposition. They are intuitively empathetic and people are drawn to their positive aura. The Day of the Dead a.k.a. El Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd. During this time the sky over the Mexican mountain village of Anguangeo is strewn with flickers of fiery orange and browns. They are not from the colors of autumn leaves but from countless monarch butterflies concluding their journey to the hills covered in firs. The locals believe the monarchs are the returning spirits of their deceased relatives, inexplicably returning the same time every year. The ancient Aztecs believe that the dearly departed souls return as hummingbirds and butterflies. The Mandarin Chinese word for butterfly is "hu-tieh". "Tieh" means "70 years", therefore butterflies have become a symbol for a long life. If a butterfly crosses your path, it means good luck. In the Japanese culture butterflies are thought to be representative of young maidens and marital bliss. In ancient Greek the word for butterfly is "Psyche", which translated means "soul". Butterflies also symbolize: Resurrection, Transition, Celebration, Lightness, Time and Soul. The daisy represents purity, innocence, loyal love, beauty, patience and simplicity and new beginnings. The Gerbera daisy, the fifth most popular flower in the world, has the added symbolism of cheerfulness! Symmetry is another manifestation of the balance of Yin and Yang, of the unimpeded flow of ch'i.
