The butterfly was possibly chosen as the totem for elemental Air not merely
because it is a creature that is constantly moving, always active, always
shifting its position from one place to another, but because of its great
transforming powers. For what was an unattractive crawling insect,
slow-moving and vulnerable, turns into a most beautiful and delicate flying
creature that weaves rainbow patterns in the air.
Butterfly Clan people are always active - either physically, mentally or
emotionally - with freash ideas and often unexpected ways of doing things.
They are manipulative and like to transform things.
Butterfly Clan people have an affinity with air, so they will be invigorated
and stimulated by being out in big open spaces and away from any kind of
confinement whenever possible.
