What Does It Mean When You Dream About The Moon?
Today we are going to talk about one of the most mysterious and beautiful motifs that occur in dreams, the Moon.
Since ancient times, the Moon has been associated with beauty, imagination, magic, mystery, the realm of dreams.
Alongside the glorious golden Sun, the lovely Silver Moon has always been an object of worship and admiration in all cultures, religious, mythological and spiritual systems of the world.
Since the times of the magnificent civilizations of Ancient Sumer, Egypt, Babylon, Greece, Rome, China and many more, the Moon has remained the source of incredible inspiration. Some of the most beautiful stories about the Moon are Greek myths about Selene, the daughter of the Titan Hyperion. Selene means “the Moon”, precisely.
Selene of Greek myth was so beautiful, accompanied by beginnings, each time she traveled through the sky. In Roman mythology, Selene’s counterpart was Luna, the same celestial entity.
The Moon has also been identified with the Greek goddess of hunting, forests and animals, Artemis. Now let’s get back to reality, at least for a brief moment; it is difficult to resist the inexplicable and haunting magic of the Moon.
The Moon does not produce its own light. Its light comes from the Sun. The Moon reflects its energy and its beautiful light, giving it another shape, another vibration and changing its meaning.
We could think of the Sun as our conscious and the Moon as its loyal companion, our unconscious. The Moon is the thin and fragile veil of our personality, but strong in imagination, magic and inspiration.
The Moon represents the feminine principle, and is associated with fertility, care, nourishment and grace.
In astrological symbolism, the Moon represents the Mother figure and is strongly associated with the intimate, private, cozy, familiar, home-related. The Moon is changeable; travels quickly through the zodiac and across the sky.
It represents memories, dreams, visions, inspiration, imagination, everything that is continuous but unstable, one moment to close, but the next, beyond our reach. The moon represents spirituality, spiritual travel, discovering oneself in the depths of the soul.
The Moon is pure magic that lives within us. No wonder it excites us, surprises us, and sometimes even frightens us.
Dreams about the moon
The Moon is strongly associated with night and dreams. It is the night when the Moon is most visible, although it also appears at twilight hours, which perhaps gives it an even darker tone.
Sometimes you can see her during the day, in the morning. Whether visible in the night sky or not, the Moon often visits our dreams.
What does it mean to dream about the moon? What secrets are hidden or revealed to us?
Dreams about the Moon are dreams about the hidden side of our own personality as it is the symbolism of the Moon seen in astrology and other spiritual interpretations.
The Moon in dreams represents your feminine, sensitive, emotional, dreamy and romantic side, among other things. Of course, the meaning of the dream depends on the details.
As the Moon is also associated with mutability, instability and flexibility, as being associated with the Water element, the Moon in dreams also represents your own turbulent nature, changing moods and possibly your insecurity, restlessness, inability to concentrate.
It also represents instability in terms of your emotional side.
The Moon governs the sign of Cancer and is closely connected with the Water element signs of Pisces and Scorpio; they are all extremely emotional.
Dreams about the full moon
The Full Moon has always been a popular motif in mythology, popular beliefs, art, literature, film, etc.
It always has a mystical connotation. For example, the Full Moon is associated with mythical creatures of the night, shape-shifting, witches, and werewolves. It gives it a slightly ‘dark’ tone, but not necessarily; it depends on how you understand such stories and myths.
It may represent your inner self that wants to come out, but for some reason you find it difficult to express it in reality.
On the other hand, full moon, beautiful and bright, white or yellow, represents something that is complete, achieved, accomplished, something surrounded.
In dreams, it may reflect your satisfaction with what you have achieved so far, especially in terms of your personal desires.
You feel complete on a spiritual level; you found yourself in the spiritual sense. The full moon means you are satisfied, even though the actual full moon may affect your sleep pattern.
Dreams of the Crescent Moon
For some people the crescent moon is the most beautiful shape of the moon to see; it definitely looks like magic.
If it occurs in your dreams, it represents adjustments, adaptations, changes that follow a cyclical pattern.
This dream means that you live according to your natural life cycles; each person has their own, in addition to the universal natural laws.
This is a good dream; indicates a smooth and gradual adjustment, the ability to understand the world and adapt, but in your own unique style.
Dreams about lunar eclipse
Dreams about lunar eclipse can be understood in different ways.
As the Moon represents femininity first and foremost, to dream of the eclipse often indicates that your feminine, gentle and nurturing side is being overshadowed by something else.
It can be a consequence of your own act or someone else’s.
Maybe you let your toughest side dominate, because your life circumstances require you to be tough.
This dream also suggests that there has been something that has cast a shadow, something that does not allow you to shine.
It can be associated with both the Sun and the Moon, as the Sun is what really gives the Moon its shine.
Maybe there was an obstacle in your waking life that prevents you from finding the source of your light, you can’t find an ideal, a role model, a goal, an inspiration or whatever. Something obscures your eyes and so you cannot see the light and shine yourself.
Dreams about touching the moon
Now this is a rare and strange dream and it can take different forms. You could dream of touching the Moon simply by reaching your hand towards the Moon in the sky and you magically touch it. You could dream that you are in the sky, up there, touching the moon.
Regardless of the exact scenario, touching the moon in dreams is associated with desires and possibly ambitions.
This is sometimes understood as having very high ambitions and expectations of oneself, although these concepts are usually associated with the Sun principle.
Dreams about touching the Moon are perhaps more related to your emotional desires, your fantasies, ideals and dreams.
You want something so badly and it definitely gives you a big boost, although it can also torment you by being hardly attainable. With the Moon, everything often remains in the realm of the abstract, imaginary, dreamy.
Dreams about seeing two moons
This is a strange and rare dream. To dream of seeing two moons in the sky suggests that you have more than one big and exciting source of inspiration and desire.
These things may or may not be related to each other and it makes you feel like a thorn in the middle.
This is a dream that can appear to artistic, versatile, visionary, restless and always wondering minds. However, it also means that you are on a path to finding your direction.
This dream is as if you have double vision; you see different sides of the same thing that inspires you a lot. Maybe you still have no idea which one to pursue because they both look alluring, alluring, and even alluring. Let time decide.
By the way, there was an expression for “walking to the moons”, which figuratively means that one should take time to think about a current situation.
Dreams about the Sun and the Moon
Dreams in which you see the Sun and Moon are strong and meaningful dreams. Depending on your current situation, the meanings are different.
This dream indicates that your conscious and subconscious sides are in balance.
Your reason matches your emotional self perfectly; you trust your intellect and analytical mind as much as your feelings and intuition. This is a dream that represents the ultimate inner balance, which is difficult to achieve.
The dream suggests that you are on a good path to achieving inner balance and maintaining it until the next cycle of change comes your way.
On the other hand, especially if you felt nervous about the dream and it had some hidden ominous tone, as if the Sun and Moon were somehow opposite, conflicting, the dream means that you struggle inside.
Your mind struggles with your feelings, your reason cannot control your emotional side, and you feel thorns between the two.
Given the fact that the Sun is the one to provide light to the Moon, but that the Moon in turn reflects its light in a mysterious way and feeds it back through imagination and with more subtle energy, the dream suggests that you is looking for that balance.
Your reason must be the controlling force, but only to a certain extent. Finding the balance between your own solar and lunar energy is not a task, it is the very art of life.
Dreams about the moon and stars
Dreams in which the Moon is accompanied by many stars are wonderful dreams that tell about your subtle, imaginative and dreamy side.
These beautiful sparkles never shine brighter than the moon shine, but they make everything more beautiful.
In dreams, your glow is the companion of the Moon’s glow, meaning that your imaginative, romantic and intuitive side has great support.
You must be an incredibly creative and imaginative personality, able to find inspiration in everything in life.
Dreams about the destruction of the Moon
If you dream that the Moon exploded or was hit by a huge asteroid or was destroyed in any other way are dreams that usually reflect great disappointment in your own ideals.
The veil of your imagination has disappeared; you are cruelly exposed to the reality of life. The destruction of the Moon in dreams is an allegory of the destruction of one’s dreams and visions.
