Dream symbol Maypole


custom, dancer, festival, flower decoration, wreath, fertility, steadfastness

The maypole, with a beautifully carved pattern in the bark, attached to the trunk of the tree with colorful ribbons and a decorated wreath, is erected in a central place in a town on the last day of April. It is an old custom, which is celebrated in many villages with a festival. Originally, the tree was considered a sign of life. It embodies growth, fertility and stability . Its tradition goes back centuries.

General dream interpretation

A dream of the Maypole wants to tell the dreamer that he is being asked to let his creative energies flow more, or to go on a journey of discovery within and bring them to full fruition.

To behold a tall maypole in a dream augurs an upcoming happy time. Also, the dreamer could be expecting a gift or have his wishes come true. It can also often represent the center of the earth, a center around which the world of the sleeper revolves.

If in a dream the fire department erects the maypole with the help of a crane in the village square, it should show the dreamer that he is advised to let technology and nature swing in harmony in his life. If a procession is organized, accompanied by the local band, it indicates a pleasant and positive change in real life.

If one sees children dancing around a maypole on the dream level, this symbolizes that new chances and opportunities will present themselves to one. One should not reject these possibilities, but use them advantageously. If one hears a choir singing songs during the maypole custom, this also predicts positive occurrences in the waking state in any case.

If you see the maypole withering away in your dream or if it is being disposed of in front of your eyes, the dreamer is most likely facing a DISSOLUTION. This can be related to things, people or the workplace.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychological dream analysis suggests that the dream symbol of the maypole refers to future celebrations, or it could also mean the beginning of a new phase of life.

Likewise, the maypole symbolizes the rapid passing of time. Often time is running out noticeably and therefore a sensible time management is recommended to the person concerned. In psychoanalytic terms, however, the maypole is also given another meaning. It embodies the sexuality and desires of the dreamer, which are being brought to his consciousness.

If the maypole in the dream is decorated with colorful ribbons, it indicates expectations and hope in interpersonal togetherness. If the said ribbons are waving in the wind, it augurs success. The wait has been worthwhile. Patience has always proved its worth in life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the transcendent level, the maypole in dreams illustrates a phallic symbol. It is associated with male sexuality and also represents life energy.
