Butterflies and Rainbows

Caught these 2 butterflies hanging out on the Butterfly Bush in the back yard a few days ago. Then they started to fly around and 'dance' around me. I could hear the flutter of their wings I believe as they did.

And the double rainbow (actually there's a reverse rainbow just under the main one that you can't see but we did) that appeared over the house after the storm that came through a bit ago.

Trying to find the meaning of rainbows outside of the cookie-cutter christian one is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Would love to find some Pagan meanings but it's like impossible. But that's what makes seeking so much more fun.


  1. Look up the Rainbow Bridge and check out the Greek Goddess Eris (I think Her name is?)

  2. I have a butterfly bush too and love watching the winged fae creatures flit about...I know of one goddess named, "Iris", I think it's the same goddess that Debra mentioned, with a different spelling. But, more important, what do rainbows mean to YOU? :)
