Dream symbol Pirates


villain, plunderer of the seas, raider, flagship with skull symbol

In real life you probably don't meet them so easily and if you do, it probably won't be so fun. We know them from Hollywood produced adventure movies where they cast their spell on us. The first films about pirates were made in the 1930s, starring Errol Flynn. At that time, the role of the villain was more romantic than scary charisma.

What is related to the character of the dreamer? What can be said about it?

General dream interpretation

If the image of the pirate sails in the dream, it is generally seen as a symbol of the person's rejection of legal norms and rules. This is not necessarily to say that all dreamers visited by a pirate are ruthless lawbreakers. This dream symbol here points to social-societal morals and ideas to which the dreamer does not want to submit. The subject feels strongly constricted in this framework when confronted with expectations and duties.

Also, on the dream level, pirates represent deviousness and cunning machinations. To exercise caution in the social environment would be advantageous according to the dream image. Not everyone is a friend just because he pretends to be one.

If you play the villain yourself as a pirate among many others, who enjoys it to the fullest, then this indicates more mindfulness. If one behaves too wildly and unrestrainedly, one could frighten or drive away close people with whom one previously had a good level of understanding.

Psychological dream interpretation

Someone to whom the dream image "pirate" appears in a dream, according to psychological clues, longs for more FREEDOM in life. Perhaps an eccentric sense of freedom has always been present, but somewhat overwhelmed by social confessions. There is also the possibility that it is a constricting life situation in which the dreamer feels unfree. On the other hand, this dream symbol can also illustrate that there is an unconscious fear of commitment . The monotonous everyday life is probably a horror for the dreamer. It would be much more exciting to "set sail" on an adventurous journey.

Pirates in our dream could also indicate a certain eroticism that is currently in the foreground for the dreamer. In the background of this dream image this can hide for men as well as for women the desire to be the sensual conqueror or to be conquered themselves.

Spiritual dream interpretation

Spiritual dream analysis illustrates in this dream symbol of the pirate a confrontation with the unconscious repression of certain aspects. The pirate in the dream asks the dreamer to accept and integrate repressed soul parts.
