I have a question about monarch butterflies. I know they mean rebirth and transformation and having to change within oneself but is there a special meaning when there are three monarchs flying together? Its starting to become a bit colder out where I live so I didnt expect to see them anymore but about two days ago I saw three of them fluttering around my yard and they stayed for quite some time and they all stayed together. I know that numbers have a magical/special meanings but I couldnt find anything that mentions seeing more than one monarch together and what it could mean. Any suggestions?
I don't know about the significance of a trio of monarch buttierfies, but explaining their presence is easy: The migration is on. Autumn is coming (it's here in some parts of the country already), and the butterflies are headed south mostly to Mexico for the cooler months. They might be passing through from Canada.
Hi. I ran a Google search for you. While I did not find anything exactly on 3 butterflies I did find this article of differing color meanings for them. That aside I'd say trust your intuition as to the meaning of the signs. When signs come to us they are usually highly personal. Our own intuition is often our best guide.
According to the Old Ways, if any butterflies accidentally cross your path, a divine omen of transformation and change is presented to you, for good or ill. Prophets of the Old Religion used to translate butterflies, as signals of Heavenly intervention and upcoming change. The question is, what kind of omen is this.
Moreover, ancient Greeks and Druids believed that sometimes, the butterfly is a disguised human soul, wondering around in a different form, traveling in other realms. Hence, persistent sights of butterflies, might be a sign that the dead try to speak to you or that a deceased loved one tries to contact you. Probably this is why in Gnostic iconography the Anger of Death is depicted stomping on a butterfly.
Butterflies as Omens of Change
To be honest, not all changes are good. However, we rarely like to talk about good or bad changes, because we truly believe, that even the hardest challenges, bear fruits of evolution and broader awareness.

Yellow butterflies are not easy omens as they predict sudden life change. Sailors spotting a yellow butterfly or for other traditions any butterfly at all prior embarking, was a sign that this will be their last journey.
