Dream symbol Nightingale


songbird, beautiful song, unique, future prediction, creativity

A nightingale is the name given to a songbird that is recognized for its beautiful singing. This melodic song is unique and quite complex in contrast to the sound of other birdsong.

It may happen in your dream that you enjoy a beautiful birdsong and enjoy it without figuratively perceiving a nightingale, just as a musical background in your dream. Usually a nightingale is a positive prophecy of the future. If the nightingale is sighted locked up in a cage, this stands as a warning sign.

General dream interpretation

In general interpretation, the nightingale stands for loyalty, happiness and joy . If the dreamer is in a problematic situation in life, the nightingale in a dream promises early improvement of the situation and hope for a new beginning. If the nightingale in the dream is found in nature, it symbolizes fulfillment and harmony in partnership.

The melodic song of a nightingale, generally speaking, serves as an indication of a secret lover who harbors deep feelings for the dreamer. On a professional level, the sound of the nightingale also heralds success and prosperity. Matters of a financial nature will soon turn out for the better. However, if you see a mute nightingale in your dream, it indicates disagreements and misunderstandings with work colleagues or friends.

If the dreamer dreams of a nightingale in a cage, this refers to caution against overly dominant persons in one's environment. Honesty is not everyone's virtue. If the dreamer himself cages the nightingale, this dream situation illustrates that he wantonly wishes to harm others and himself derives his advantage or benefit from it. He is advised by this dream to confront himself with his selfish attitudes and actions and to ask how long he wants to continue on these deviations or whether this will really lead him to a happy outcome.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychoanalytical interpretation concludes through this dream image of the nightingale a good basic motivation and positive life orientation . Nothing can shake him or knock him down, he rests rooted in himself. Listening to the sweet song, the nightingale, asks the dreamer to be careful. The person is easily persuaded or lulled into doing something by others and realizes that this is not what he actually intended to do. It seems to be an easy game for others to manipulate the dreamer.

Spiritual dream interpretation

On the spiritual level of interpretation, the nightingale symbolizes creativity, ingenuity and artistic potential. This dream symbol serves as a motivation to give more space to one's own creative vein.
