The Meanings of Colors in Dreams

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Dreams

In general, colors in dreams have been adjudicated the following meanings:

Black: The color of death, indicating depression and moodiness in the dreamer

Blue: Spiritual energy and high ideals; fidelity; cool intellect; the celestial, and therefore, the high aspirations of the soul; deep blue means intuition and understanding.

Brown: The color of the earth, therefore it means sensation and sometimes disintegration.

The color of the sun, therefore it means the conscious mind and truth; it also indicates the masculine principle.

Vitality, healing; growth; hope; the principle of life itself; a muddy green indicates jealousy or weakness and inexperience.

Health; energy; occult powers; the power of mind; messages.

The emotions; love; joy; illusion.

Purple or Violet: vital power; the moon color and therefore intuition; maybe travels or news.

Life force; sexual passion; blood; fire; also anger.

White or Silver: Purity; peace; light; illumination; wisdom; a symbol of the moon, and therefore of the female principle.

Yellow: Sunshine; mind; intuition; pure energy; happiness to come; good financial prospects; a muddy yellow indicates cowardice and sometimes death.

Naturally, the type of object we see surrounded by a specific color is just as important as its hue, and we have to take both meanings into consideration before reaching a reasonably accurate interpretation of the dream.

Sitting here in the dark, watching the moon shine over the autumn landscape (my favorite time of year) I find myself reflecting on the question that is most frequently asked of me: "How do I know if my house is haunted?" The question seems so simple, so endearing and direct, but it is as complex as the human mind or the spiritual realm and it... read this article
