What Does It Mean When You Dream About Snow?
There is some magic in beautiful snowflakes, tiny and yet so complex and, ultimately, artistic filigree of the skies. It’s hard to resist the magic of snow, even for those sensitive to the cold winter temperatures and all those who feel gloomy on short cold days.
The enchanting ice crystals, lace decorations that come in the most unbelievable patterns and shapes, shimmering frost, reflections of street lights on snowy pavements, all these images make us feel as if we have entered another, magical dimension.
Snow, as a natural phenomenon, has been placed in various constructions of humanity. Since the first time people saw it, snow has had numerous symbolic meanings all over the world.
Snow, like the change of seasons, represents another phenomenon of nature to which humanity has always had to adapt.
In different cultural systems, exposition has different meanings, which largely depends on where on earth people live.
Just as many other weather phenomena have been explained through magical and mystical concepts, snow also carries mysterious symbolic meanings. Many of the natural phenomena that humanity has not been able to understand have been attributed some supernatural and strange forces.
Today, of course, we know how snow is made, but that fact doesn’t change our way of seeing snow as something profoundly exceptional, awe-inspiring, and magical.
The magic of snow
The symbolism of snow is ample and all-encompassing; the magic and mystery of snow has been mentioned even in parts of the world where it never snows. As with other natural phenomena, cultural conceptions of snow are many.
It has been considered something that is, at the same time, dangerous, powerful and frightening, but also charming and beautiful.
The thick, shimmering snow cover represents supreme peace, tranquility, static; all vegetation and most living beings spend winter rest days, sleeping, not moving and taking only a little, if any, action.
On the other hand, the snowstorm represents something entirely opposite; it is a symbol of raging nature, of its invincibility, of its dominion over our world.
The raging snowstorm has always been seen as something out of this world; even the most skeptical, those who would find a sober, scientific explanation of everything, sometimes doubt whether there is anything more.
Snow represents many things, from beauty, purity and peace, to invincibility, danger and menace. Just think of those terrifying snowy Arctic lands that have swallowed countless explorers of brave polar lands and their mighty ships.
Snow also symbolizes purity, divinity, beauty and perfection. It represents things not stained by any impurity.
It is a common metaphor found in art and literature; many poets would describe a virgin beautiful, soft and fragile as a lady with skin as pure and pale as the first snows of the year.
Snowflakes, one of the best examples of nature’s artistic creations, represent perfection, creativity and uniqueness.
Snow is also associated with death and its inevitability. It is associated with the descent of vegetation and the winter sleep of living life, therefore, symbolically, it also represents death and cold.
Sometimes it symbolizes difficult times; in ancient tales one could rarely find snow described as a phenomenon that is desired; because people were more dependent on natural resources at the time.
Nature’s cycles have taught people to harvest food for the cold winter months, when all their crops are sleeping under a merciless but beautiful cover of ice and snow.
The thickness of snow cover, the frequency and amount of snowfall, the duration of winter, these have always been natural phenomena associated with the activity of forces unknown to people.
Dreams about snow
Dreams about snow can be particularly interesting and variable. For some people, dreams about snow are relaxing and calming, while for others they are uncomfortable and upsetting.
It all depends on personal opinions about snow and winter, but also on a huge number of factors related to certain dreams.
Was there a snowfall or just a snow-covered landscape? What were you doing in the dream? Did you only see snow from inside or was it freezing outside?
There are so many different scenarios where snow can take a specific shape in your dream, so it’s good to remember as much detail as you can.
However, the energy of this dream will be decided based on your feelings related to it. Dreams about the strongest and most expressive of natural phenomena such as rain, thunder, fire and of course snow are commonly associated with intense emotions.
Snow, as an element of a dream, often reflects feelings of loneliness, sadness, estrangement from people, deep sadness, self-pity, and so on.
However, it could also reflect feelings of calm, tranquility, even harmony and peace. Sometimes snow reflects the idea of purity, divinity and perfection.
It all depends on a dreamer. However, in all scenarios, the snow symbolism has a strong effect and can help a dreamer to better understand their current situation in waking life.
Dreams about seeing snow
Dreams about seeing snow, like dreams about seeing a landscape covered in snow, reflect deep-rooted emotions related to feeling lonely or lonely and feeling distant from other people.
At first it seems that these dreams have a negative meaning, but this is not always the case.
If you feel lonely and sad in reality, this dream is a reflection of such emotions, obviously, but it can also have another side.
The dream in which you see snowy terrain may reflect your deep need to be truly alone and make a better perception of your own heart’s desires. You’ve been letting others control your life for too long and it actually makes you feel more and more distant.
You want to separate yourself from everything and take some time for yourself. It can be difficult, not having anyone around, but it can also be helpful, healing and eye-opening.
However, if you are looking at a snowy street or a landscape from inside a cozy and warm house, it means that you feel satisfied with your life or that you have to realize that you have every reason to be happy.
Its environment is safe and offers you many opportunities to relax and enjoy; you just have to be aware of it.
If you are seeing snow while you are with someone else, it means that you have incredible support in your life; you have people who will be by your side even in cold and difficult times.
Dreams about snowflakes
Dreams about snowflakes are amazing and good. If you dream of carefully studying the shape and pattern of snowflakes, this is a reflection of your need to analyze everything in your life in order to find the best way to make it better.
You are a creative perfectionist and this dream just proves it, so go for it. Dreaming of snowflakes implies that soon you will put your imagination into reality.
On the other hand, snowflakes may look perfect, but they aren’t forever; they disappear quickly when you touch them, for example. In this sense, snowflakes in dreams symbolize the beauty of the moment and the inevitability of the end of things.
That being said, this dream suggests that you should live in the moment, which means that you should appreciate and enjoy all the things you have right now. Melting snowflakes in dreams symbolize the end of all future things, the cycle of existence on a smaller plane.
There are truly precious things around you, but you have to open your eyes and notice them.
These things are unique, just as snowflakes are unique, even though they may look similar.
Each person has a story to tell, this is another message from this dream.
Dreams about snowfall
If you dream of snowfall, it means that a period of purification comes your way; you need some kind of restart, new beginnings. If the weather is calm and the snow is falling, it means that you will soon discover some new paths to tread.
This is a positive dream and it also reflects your inner peace and calm about changes.
It means that you are okay with it and that you have accepted that a new chapter in your life is about to begin. The falling snow covers the earth, right?
That said, falling snow in a dream represents a period of rest, sleep, a status quo phase of life.
This suggests that you shouldn’t rush; you have to be patient and wait for different times. Don’t be afraid to wait; Anxiety won’t help, because there’s still an order of things that’s out of your control.
Take it easy and save your resources for the right moment.
Dreams about playing in the snow
If you dream of playing in the snow, it means that you are probably tired of responsibility and work.
Everyone needs some time to have fun, to feel like a child and just let go of all the stress and negativity present in everyday life. This dream suggests that you should put all worries, all duties and tasks aside, at least for a short time and pamper yourself a little.
This dream could also mean that there are some really good opportunities ahead of you and you should definitely grab them.
Otherwise, they will simply pass you by and disappear, just as snow melts. Open your eyes and ears and go in search of things that intrigue your imagination. Even if you’re suspicious, it might be worth a try.
Dreams about finding something in the snow
If you dream that you found an object in the snow, the meaning depends on the object found, but the snow symbolism makes it more interesting.
Dreams about finding things in the snow are usually associated with a dreamer’s inner potential and talents and abilities that he or she is unaware of in waking life.
For example, if you dream of finding some specific tools, it means that you should try to do something with these in reality. Each of the objects found in the snow in dreams suggests that there are things you feel deep down that you are not aware of.
They can be metaphors for your desires, talents, emotions in general. Since you founded snow, it means that either you have forgotten these ideas or that you have not yet discovered them.
This type of dream is positive and serves as a good guideline for life.
Dreams about a snowman
Interestingly, but dreams about a snowman are not good and are often associated with emotional coldness, distance, sadness and loneliness. A snowman in a dream represents a mask, a fake smile that we put on our face in reality in order to appear right in front of others.
This dream suggests that you should open up, at least to those closest to you. Maybe you think they’ve stopped caring about you, but the truth is, they think you’re completely fine.
This could mean that you are pushing your loved ones away unintentionally. You act like you’re strong, which could make you arrogant and reserved at the same time. Think if so.
Alternatively, the snowman in a dream could represent what he is in reality; a reason for joy and fun with friends and family.
