The Bee and its symbolism

Since time immemorial, man has used the bee (Apis mellifera) to obtain honey. It is therefore not difficult to understand that this link is the source of innumerable superstitions concerning this insect. We will try to summarize them below.

The Greeks used to consecrate bees to the moon and Plato in the Doctrine of the Transmigration of Souls , probably inherited from previous Middle Eastern and African tribal cultures, argued that the souls of honest and placated people were reborn in the form of bees.

In ancient times in Great Britain, bees were also called "birds of God", in Germany instead as "birds of Mars".

During the time of the Holy Inquisition it was believed that a witch who ate a bee before being captured and interrogated would endure torture without making a confession.

For Christianity the bee was a symbol of chastity and virtue: hence the belief that bees cause a loud buzz before just before midnight on Christmas Eve in honor of the unborn Jesus. Another legend tells that from the tears of Jesus bees came out.

It is important to underline that, often, in common folklore the bee represents the soul of a deceased: if a member of the family dies, it is necessary to tell the bees, otherwise they will leave the hive and never return. If, on the other hand, the head of the family dies, when the deceased is brought out for the funeral, the hives must be turned to the opposite side.

If bees swarm from the hive to the vegetation, there will be a death in the family. Bees should never be moved on Good Friday otherwise they will die.

The behaviors of bees, according to common superstition, are also traced back to meteorological events: if many bees enter the hive without leaving it, it will surely rain.

To avoid attracting bad luck, bees should never be sold, but bartered.

Many bees that fly near a sleeping child portend a happy life for that child, but if a bee dies in the house, bad luck is assured. The worst thing is to kill a bee in the house because, in this case, negative energies will pervade the house for many years.

Among the peoples of Mississippi it is a common belief that if you dream of a swarm of bees that alight on a house, bad luck will certainly come.

A virgin girl can safely go through a large swarm of bees without being stung while, if the bees remain stationary and doing nothing in a hive for a long time, they herald the arrival of a war.

Tradition has it that bees also have therapeutic properties in the treatment of rheumatism.

In the language of flowers, the daisy has several meanings, all positive and connected with the concept of 'truth'.

It is above all the delicate flower of purity and innocence, of simplicity and modesty, but also of faithful love and patience. Always appreciated for the beauty of its apparently simple features, the meaning of the daisy symbolizes youthful innocence, free from feelings of guilt, sin, corruption. In fact, once upon a time it was commonly collected in the meadows by girls and slipped between the locks of hair. Depending on the subjects involved, the message inherent in the daisies became particularly significant when they were given and accepted: praise to the numerous virtues, as many as there were petals of each of these flowers, delivered sincerity and irreproachability in the hands of those who received it, but could also constitute a promise of faithful love. Thus, when the silent language in flowers was popularly known, a young girl accepted daisies with great honor, considering it a gesture in honor of her respectability or a proof of affection.

But, if the gift was offered in public, then it took on the meaning of entrusting a secret in good faith to those who would keep it safe, concealing it from all, never revealing the truth and accepting it, the request was considered. Between lovers, it has always been the equivalent of a confession and a pledge of eternal sentiment.

The cut flower, gathered in a beautiful bouquet, has commonly remained celebratory of the 5th anniversary, while in a bouquet of daisies it is given to a new mother as a sign of welcome for the newborn. Due to the shape of the flower, with the petals radiating around the central yellow disc, the daisy in fact cheers as if it brought the sun into people's lives. The Anglo-Saxons had given it an appropriate name: 'daisy', which derived from 'day's eye' and meant 'day's eye', since it opened in the morning and closed at night, and from this it had induced it in ancient times to use it for soothe eye problems. In some parts of England, it was also called 'thunderflower' as it reaches its seasonal flowering peak in summer, when thunderstorms are more frequent, but it was also thought to protect against thunder and lightning.
