The egg is a symbol of the self, soul or inner transformation. Emergence with the new and out with the old. Something that is fragile yet strong, unhatched potential. The golden egg in your dream connects you with the divine power, masculine energy, higher self, and higher consciousness. Gold in dreams is considered one of the most powerful colors to see.
Egg Yoke Dreams
Depending the context these dreams can go both ways. The yoke is separated from the egg whites. Could this be a metaphor for separating away from something pure? If you are cracking the egg yoke suggests new beginnings positive changes afoot. Noticing double egg yoke in your dream brings your attention to pairs, double or twins. This is two inside one.
These are also positive dream symbols that show you abundance and wealth. The color of the yoke has its own interpretation to the dream. Black yoke which is common brings your attention to neglected or failed situations in life.

Last night I dreamt I found three small eggs from some type of bird, like a song bird. I took them home to hatch them but put them in a glass jar of water. Two sank to the bottom the third floated to the top and began to hatch.
Good afternoon every one I dreamt that I bought two eggs to cook but I didn’t cook it I later returned it where I bought it I told the lady that I was unable to cook it that she should give me back my money and take the egg so I noticed that one of the egg has cracked so she said I shouldn’t worry that she would keep the egg in a safe place to make it form back and that when the egg forms back she will refund my money then I woke up
Cool dream. It seems as something beneficial to you will be working in your favor. I think you can find the meaning by doing a bit of introspection. You have many clues to work with. You were in search for something but are not taking it yet. Something is in a safe place for you to get it when you need it. See circle.
I had a dream where I had two eggs in my hand to prepare a tomatoe sauce with. I broke the first one, and to my surprise there were five yokes in it. Four came out but one got stuck in the shell. And the sight was beautiful. After that I fried it, but I don’t remember eating it though.
What does it mean, please as I used to dream about eggs a lot.
I am not sure what it is alluding to but it is very positive. What you would need to do is reflect on what type of change is taking place within you. Now this could be something you think is two but is actually five. This could be anything in your life, but one of the five seems to be stuck in the shell. Shells might be metaphoric for the things you might be hiding behind or what is protecting you from the past. If you are preparing or cooking it suggests that you will benefit from the nourishment.

Hi, I’ve had a dream with two significant symbols, eggs and mice. The mice were an infestation in a room somewhere, they were all white and calm. Someone slept in that room but I did not understand how. Later in the dream someone (I did not know this person I think I sold her something or gave her something) gave me a tray of 12 eggs. I know these greenish pastel colored eggs and I thought it was them but when I looked more closely they were light blue with darker blue spots, like a painting, very beautiful. I put… Read more »
Hi Ipseity, Mice are considered negative symbols such as annoyances, anxiety, unwanted problems, negative people or situations that remain unconscious to you. you see houses in dreams often connect the person to the psyche/mind or inner architecture; the room/bed connects you to relationships, privacy, urges (see bed dreams in search bar). The calm behaviour of the mice is a major clue that is mirroring this issue. The fact that you dont understand how someone could sleep in that room suggest that it either remains hidden from you or this minor threat belongs to someone else. The end part of the… Read more »
i dreamed that i or someone dropped and egg and it was really important that we cleaned it up but no one was cleaning it up and by then time i was about to the dream ended
Seems very symbolic. Did the egg break?
I dreamt of walking into a hen house tasked to go and collect eggs (something I’ve never done in my life). When I entered, there were no hens only abandoned nests with 1 egg in each. Each egg was different size and color. Using my left hand, I started to place each one into a basket in my right hand. At the end of the row of nests, there was a stack of misshapen eggs, different sizes and colors and some warped, some cracked, and some hatching. I remember feeling anxious peering at these eggs as I was unsure if… Read more »
Can you please clarify “Using my left hand, I started to place each one into a basket in my right hand.“
In my dream,I was stacking eggs , like a higher than me stack. And I told my mom, not like that, mom, because if someone grabs one, they all will fall.
Collecting many gathered eggs in bowls. Left few which werent good.
The left could be metaphoric for leaving “left” something to rot maybe. Do you have more details about the dream?
I dreamt i had dozens of spider eggs hatching from a wound in the palm of my left hand after I pressed the wounding bump because it hurt. Some were propelled just like a zit others just walked on my hand.
The wound might be a metaphoric internal wound relating to the feminine. The left hand could suggest something that has (left) of sometimes seen as unclean or negative.
I was brought two treys of eggs, broke them and tapped their content. After the extraction, I then pilled the shells.
What is the meaning of this dream.
Interesting dream. Two trays of eggs is 24 that number might be associated with something. What did you break and trapped? Eggs can be symbols of the self. There is not much detail to your dream, however you might be investigating getting closer to your core. Removing a hard shell.
I tapped the fluids of the eggs into a basket and pilled shells together in one place.
It would be hard to say as the egg is a very complicated symbol, and we would need more context to the dream. The separation from the egg and the fluid is something you will carry (basket). You are extracting something that is metaphoric reflecting your life. The shells are beside it (protection).
