Dream symbol Joker


substitute, placeholder, fool, clown, villain

The joker is indispensable in card games and other social games. Also in a quiz it often stands as a wild card that can replace or represent any card and is therefore very popular. Wild card is what it is called in English.

He can also take on another meaning, that of a sinister jester who makes his own rules of the game and has no one to spit in his soup or tell him what to do. The jester is generally considered to be a clown who hides his face behind his strikingly colorful mask with a red bulbous nose and wears a colorful wig on his head. In any case, it is traditionally known in this way from the circus.

Famous are the horror movie "IT", where an evil clown makes his murderous mischief and lures children into the sewers. Or from the Batman film adaptations, in which he portrays a deranged criminal who can give you the creeps with his gleeful laughter. This one makes other people suffer with his dark humor and malicious power intentions. On the one hand, the Joker can be compared to a chameleon due to his adaptability, and on the other hand, he can be devious and dangerous if you remember the movies mentioned above.

It depends on it now, in which form the Joker appears in our dream, accordingly the interpretations fall out.

General dream interpretation

If you encounter the Joker as a playing card in a dream or if it can be used as an applicable symbol for anything, this indicates ADAPTABILITY. This can be interpreted positively or negatively.

There are situations in which it may prove important to give in or to adapt and not to have to constantly put one's head through the wall and always push through everything. However, there may be another aspect behind the conformity that indicates a character weakness. The person in question wallows in insecurity and wants to please everyone all the time and be loved, if he slandered himself in the process. However, this will not end well in the long run. No one can always be "Everybody's Darling" and bending over doesn't stand for it.

In addition, the dream symbol Joker can also illustrate the relationship with surrounding friends and acquaintances, on whom there is no reliance. If the Joker appears in the dream in the office of the company, it is warned to be careful of cheating. Alternatively, the sleeper is smiled at behind his back and not taken seriously.

If the Joker plays the fool in a dream or appears as a malicious character from a Batman movie, the dream represents irrationality and for the illusion about life, which often deceives and leads to false ones. Dreaming of the Joker in connection with a known person in his sleep that he does not trust the dreamer.

Psychological dream interpretation

From a depth psychological point of view, dream interpretation interprets the joker as a symbol of one's own abyss . He could be harming others behind the mask, which is what this dream is pointing to. Furthermore, he could not be so exact with the truth in order to reach his goal.

Fears can also be expressed in these dreams, which have been too much suppressed in everyday life and which the person concerned cannot admit to himself. He may also imagine that he is being deceived by others, and this worry is symbolized as the common joker in the dream.

Spiritual dream interpretation

According to spiritual interpretations, the Joker in a dream stands as a hidden or veiled message that will take a second or third look to become transparent.
