board game, game of kings, analytical tactics, patience, astuteness, flexibility, black and white thinking

Chess is called the "game of kings". The most successful chess players of all time have an analytical mind to put themselves in the opponent's shoes and anticipate his future moves.

Is the opponent more of a strategist or in attack mode to go all out and proclaim "checkmate"? As a professional chess player, one is particularly practiced in patience.

According to dream interpretation, playing chess in a dream is usually very directly related to professional matters in real life. If a whole chessboard appears in the dreamland or only single chess pieces like rook, bishop, knight, queen or king, there are accordingly different interpretations.

General dream interpretation

According to the general dream interpretation, the chess game indicates a conflict between good and evil, black and white. The question is whether the dreamer in question is aware of the tension of the situation in question and on which side he is in this problematic situation.

"Chess" as a dream symbol refers to dispute matter, where there is urgency to plan appropriate strategies . In resolving difficult circumstances, this could benefit the dreamer and much can be avoided if conflicts are recognized in time.

If one dreams of a chess game with pieces on the board in the dream, then this dream image represents a warning against careless actions in the real world. One should refrain from spontaneous and rash decisions. If you appear as a chess player in the dream image, this reflects, according to general dream analysis, facing a clever business partner soon. This business acquaintance could turn out very much in favor of the dreamer.

In addition, dream interpretation through this dream event suggests that one should be on guard against neglect on a business level. Missing certain duties or deadlines here could lead to a stall in one's success status, followed by financial failure .

If one should emerge in the dream as a winner in the chess game, this is interpreted critically on the level of dream interpretation. A certain naivety of the dreamer could be an obstacle to not recognizing the emerging opportunities at the right time and missing special deadlines.

If, on the other hand, the dreamer plays the loser in the dream scene, it symbolizes financial gain and success experienced thanks to a clever work colleague and his helpful support.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological interpretation, playing a dreamed game of chess illustrates an unattainable goal . It is hopeless to try to realize a project where the person lacks relevant relationships and crucial knowledge.

Although this dream symbol illustrates a perceptiveness and quick grasp of the dreamer, the person in question is unable to bring his potential to bear at the right time in everyday life. Only rarely do lucky moments occur where the right timing fits and he can fully develop his abilities.

Does it happen in a dream that you, as a dreamer, react very emotionally, throwing all the chess pieces off the board with rage and anger? If you have this dream situation in front of your eyes, then you should direct the observation focus more on yourself and your impulsiveness, in order to slow it down a bit. Because otherwise acquaintances and friends around you could easily feel pushed back.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to the interpretative analysis on a spiritual level, symbolizes a conflict between the white and dark forces, both poles that we carry within us. Which side is stronger, we determine by deciding which one we "feed" more.
