Dream symbol Nutcracker


opera, ballet, stubborn, hard nut, patience, tricky situation

Nutcrackers are made in many forms and have various functions. As the name suggests, it is about a tool to crack nuts, freeing the nut from the stubborn shell to enjoy this nutritious treat. This undertaking may require some energy and patience.

Sometimes the project of cracking the shell is crowned with success, but sometimes we do not succeed in breaking it open in the dream. Whether we were able to get through to the nut or whether it remained unopened is of decisive importance for the dream interpretation.

General dream interpretation

If the dreamer sees a nutcracker in a dream, it is generally associated with difficult life tasks. The challenges that must be faced are of no small magnitude. It requires a lot of effort and perseverance to successfully implement the respective projects.

If you use the nutcracker in a dream and enjoy the fruit at the end, it means that the effort was worthwhile and that a good result will be the outcome.

The cracking of nuts in a dream generally represents happiness and the fulfillment of deep desires.

If the nut cannot be opened in the dream, this circumstance rather expresses the opposite. There could be disappointment awaiting the dreamer in this case. The danger of failure and the occurrence of losses is predicted by this dream image. The same is true for a cracked nut that is hollow.

Psychological dream interpretation

Psychological dream interpretation sees this dream symbol as similar to the nutcracker. Difficult situations need to be mastered. The dreamer puts great hope in the planned projects. Unconsciously he has already sensed that the forthcoming is impossible to implement alone, and in this respect one is well advised to let go of false pride and ask for or allow help.

If one has little success with the nutcracker in a dream, this image refers to sexual problems. From a psychoanalytical point of view, this means that the dreaming person sees issues of sexuality very soberly and too objectively. There seems to be a tricky approach to the needs. Possibly he judges them as wrong or as something reprehensible. In any case, he is not at peace with himself and his inclinations. He could work on letting go of all negative pressures toward himself and being able to let go more, relinquish control, which could have a positive effect on his sex life.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The "Nutcracker" stands spiritually interpreted in the dream interpretation for a unique access to connect with forces of a special kind . The dreamer is advised to use these powers for the common good.
