General dream interpretation

The rainbow with its color magic is a very expressive dream symbol, which has an outstanding meaning for many primitive peoples.

Traditionally, the rainbow in the general interpretation is seen as a symbol of unification and peace. It unites in peaceful form, the two supporting poles, the opposing elements of water and fire, the latter representing the sun. It is a harmonious fusion of the mental will and the intuitive feeling. For love partners, the rainbow illustrates the symbol of happiness, of a harmonious and happy and, above all, lasting relationship.

A rainbow in a dream predominantly represents a good sign. If a rainbow appears to the dreamer in his sleep, it announces a positive message in the near future. It could also be about other extraordinary occurrences. It also means that a long-awaited reconciliation will finally occur. If the rainbow stands close above the trees in the dream image, it augurs successfully completed business.

Psychological dream interpretation

According to psychological analysis, the colorful rainbow is a symbol of imagination and creativity. But it also symbolizes hope and heralds improvement. The rainbow contains all the colors of the light spectrum, thus illustrating the aspect of expansion of consciousness.

It gives the dreamer more sensitivity on the level of perception and action through this dream image. It also serves as a symbol of union or merging of the opposite poles, as exemplified by the mind versus emotions. The hoped-for result is balance and harmony.

The famous psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung gives a special place to the dreamed rainbow. For him, it represents the bridge to the world beyond, which departed souls use as a means of transition after their death.

Spiritual Dream Interpretation

For spiritual dream interpretation, the rainbow points to the symbol of wholeness. The rainbow embodies the connection of earth and sky, peace with all existence and God, which can be further understood as the reconnection to one's Divine Self.

Rarely but nevertheless it is attributed a negative symbolism. Among North American Indian tribes, for example, the rainbow is a symbol of bad luck.
