Dreaming Of The Moon

When the moon has illuminated in your dreams it brings a very powerful message of inner divine energy. The moons gravitational force unconsciously guides you towards eternity, renewal, feminine, CIRCLE or the dark side of Nature herself.

The moons cycles are powerful symbolic metaphors relating to the emotional pulls that belong to you and others around you. It’s mysterious nature allows the dreamer to explore their Intuition, Hidden Creative Talents and Higher Consciousness.

Moon Dream Meaning

The moon reflects a unconscious force towards the feminine – The Mother Goddess is guiding you towards a new cycle of life. The specific phase of the moon depicted in your dream contains a hidden message implying either starting or ending this transition.

There is an unconscious magnetic force pulling you towards something that needs to be acknowledged. Negative associations involving the moon in your dream might connect to emotional disturbances linking back to your mother.

Moon Dreams: Life’s Cycles

The symbol of the moon often enigmatic. She wants you to understand your true nature in order to become whole. Its close connection the Sun (masculine), water (emotion) suggesting major conscious shifts occurring. In fact these cycles may include menstrual, conscious shifts, emotional, and human stages.

The new moon can be interpreted as  infancy, the crescent symbolic of youth and adolescence, and the full moon reflects maturity, completion, or pregnancy.  The warning moon the amount of light area decreases (or the darkened area increases) brings forth ending of a phase.

Women menstrual cycles might be associated with the lunar cycle – both are 28 days in length.

Moon Dreams: Emotional Changes

In astrology the moon is associated with the emotional body, providing us with moodiness, happiness and fulfillment. The moon and emotions have played a huge part in superstition which many still believe that affects people’s emotions and behaviors.

Since our bodies are made up of mostly water, the moon in our dream becomes a powerful symbol of something that is pulling our energy towards the source. Similar to the tide being pulled and pushed the moon is in charge of these emotional shifts in our live.

Dreams of the moon can symbolize the magnetic pull that is bringing emotions to the surface. These are unconscious (feminine) emotions that need to be accepted within oneself.

Like the symbol of the yin and yang there needs to be balance of energy to live in harmony. The full moon might imply changes of behaviors, moodiness and tiredness.

Luna: The Mother Goddess

The moon is the female (feminine) counterpart of the sun (masculine) – relates to the androgynous nature of the psyche.  In ancient Roman religion and myth, Luna, or in Greek mythology Selene; is the divine personification of the Moon.

Once her powers are awaken, becoming conscious to the dreamer; there will be an increase of creativity, intuition and psychic power. These thoughts, feelings and emotions manifest unconsciously through the night – hence being associated with the moon.

From a psychological stand point the moon might imply the man’s inner woman or the anima – the female within the male. If the relationship is distorted or distant, the context of the dream might be a nightmarish setting.

With no connection to his feminine side he will feel depressed, dull and neurotic. However, a man who is conscious of the relationship becomes full of life, as he illuminates like the sun off the moon.

In astrological terms the moon symbolizes the inner self, the emotions, security, and the unconscious. It is a mirror of the true self, represented by the Sun. Offering protection as it circles around the sun sending you light.

Crescent Moon Dreams: Virgin Mary

In the Christian text shows the Virgin Mary enthroned on the lunar or sickle moon. The moon has always been represented as the symbol of Mary, as she provides and reflects the light of the sun (Christ).  A biblical symbol of fertility, rebirth and divine epiphanies.

The Biblical meaning of the moon in our dream explains that the moon was created to give light to the Earth. In your dream this might be hinting at a closer connection with God as he is closer with you during the darker times.

In Genesis 1:16-17 (Bible Moon) – “God made two great lights, the sun and the moon, to shine down upon the earth. He also made the stars. God sent these lights in the heavens to light the earth.” Rev. 12:1 who has the “moon under her feet”.

Common Moon Dreams

Full Moon Dream Meaning

Dreaming of a full moon might to connect the dreamer to shifts, enlightenment (see full circle) or emotional changes.  These dreams might be hinting at the hidden, mysterious aspect of yourself. Bringing your attention to the feminine attributes, creativity and psychic energy.

Two Full Moons Dream Meaning

Dreaming of two moons is a rare yet an ambiguous symbol representing being pulled by two opposing forces in your life. This strong pull might throw the dreamer out of balance and harmony relating to love, moods, feminine energy, relationships.  Since this is unconscious the dreamer needs to figure out who or what is causing this gravitational force from pulling you towards something.

Three Moons Dream Meaning

Dreaming of three moods is a very iconic symbol of the TRIAD or Triangle that contains elements of change and transformation in ones life. A whole number with a beginning, middle and end. Possibly ending on phase, death and rebirth or completion.

 Multiple Moons Dream Meaning

Noticing four or five moons in your dreams connects the dreamer to the feminine. A major pull or shift or transformation might be alluding you towards the YIN energy or unconscious energy. For generations, astronomers have suggested the possibility that Earth may have more than one moon.

Blood Moon

Blood in dreams is often synonymous with passion, life blood, fire or anger.  The “blood moon” occurs when Earth’s moon is in a total lunar eclipse. Dreaming of a blood moon might be related to a woman’s menstrual cycle or connects to the unknown, dark or shadow side – repressed unconscious emotions. This might also bring the dreamers attention to beginnings, endings, or spiritual disconnection.

I had a dream about 2 weeks ago and in my dream the the moon flew by very fast in the sky and the moon was red. I knew something was wrong so I turned to my friend and asked him if he had just seen that. He said “that’s not the moon, that’s Lima. It’s been around for the last few months. How did you only notice it now?” I instantly woke up and wondered what the hell was Lima? I’d never heard that word in my life before I heard it in my dream. So I searched Google… Read more »

Hello! Last night I had a dream of a full moon with no brightness one below that was a little bright in the centre but not by much and then one egg-shaped moon that was the height of the Other two moons and had a light yellow shade. I remember going to the moon that was a little bright after my mum said that you can’t see the earth’s features on it. And so holding it in my hand and a map in my other hand, and seeing that the moon indeed had the image of earths geographical features imprinted… Read more »

I had a dream that I keep remembering where I was spending time with someone I’m interested in. Everything seemed out of place. I didn’t know where I was and it wasn’t what we usually do. He walks over to the glass doors to tell me that the moon just turned red. I watched it with him and consciously told myself “another red moon?” and saw a symbol of Aries, I believe, and then this humanoid Ram creature dressed in red noble clothes with a staff appeared before him. I was standing near his mom, while the creature told him… Read more »

During my dream, I was with who seemed to be co-workers (but they were not anyone I recognized in real life). One of them pointed to the sky and asked if I could see what was up there. I first noticed a full moon and told him how pretty it looked. But then he pointed out and told me to look again. At that point, there were several moons. At first, I saw about 3 different moons. Later, I was sitting on some sort of stadium-like stairs with a group of people. To my far right was my boyfriend (only… Read more »

In my dream I came outside with my little brother and the moon was burning and some pieces of the moon were falling to the ground. So I led my brother inside the house and I looked up at the moon again. Then saw that the moon have grown again. Oh and the fire from the moon didn’t harm any of us. Those burning pieces of the moon fell o my brother but nothing happened.

I just had a dream that I was with friends. The moon started moving and all of a sudden, it started swinging from side to side and I could see that it was fake because it was hanging from a rope. I had this feeling that something was very wrong. And then all of a sudden it exploded! And this crew came out and started cleaning it up. I look over and one of my girlfriends was getting her period, out in the open and she was squatting down and cleaning it up in front of all of us. What… Read more »

What does it mean when the full has an immensely large gaping fiery hole in it? It was so eerie like Hades was shooting fire from the center of it

Ahm, not sure what more details I could provide. I happen to post whatever I could try and recall. Checked circle meaning and couldn’t possibly reach a specific conclusion. It was a full bright moon, clear sky, the moon was closer than it usually is in the sky. So not very huge, just a little bigger in size than we normally see. It strangely had a clock prints of 12-6, 9-3 (can’t remember all numbers but had numerals for sure) written in roman form strangely. I don’t remember what time it displayed. Can’t also remember if it was ticking or… Read more »

Today morning I dreamt that I was traveling in a vehicle and then I saw a beautiful full moon which had risen up in the sky. It was evening. I made the driver stop the vehicle because I wanted to capture its picture in my camera. And then I woke up.
Coincidentally, it is actually a full moon today.

I dreamt that we were anticipating of a rare phonemenon that the full moon will be so bright and clear. When it finally revealed itself from behind the cloud, we were astonished as it was so beautifully bright and clear. We tried taking a picture but it suddenly moved to the left behind the clouds until it was gone. Few seconds later the moon turned a person to mingle with us. We were not terrified. Instead we were excited taking pictures together. The person was not clear if it was a man or a woman. But we knew it was… Read more »

I dreamt of seeing two full moons near the horizon though it’s not nighttime. The sky was more like a pinkish/purplish color and I’m watching how the two moons seemingly get closer to each other but they didn’t. What does that suppose to mean? Few weeks/months ago I also saw a crescent moon recurring in my dreams every night, but not consecutively though. And now two full moons? I’m confused, really.
