Possible Meanings:

The butterfly represents metamorphosis. In your dream, do you see the entire metamorphosis from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly? If you do, this may indicate a desire for a slow and carefully planned transition. Do you see the caterpillar and butterfly but no cocoon? This may suggest that you’re happy to get on with change in your life. Do you only see the butterfly? Perhaps you have no interest in the past and find the present a lot more exciting? The classic symbol of butterfly is transformation. Ask yourself where you’re going and where you’ve come from. What changes do you want to make in your life? Do you believe that you have to destroy the past to create something new? Dreaming of a butterfly may also indicate that life is more beautiful in the present than perhaps it was in the past.
