Shooting stars are small meteors that fall into the earth's atmosphere and burn up there. This causes a glow, which draws a regular tail after itself and can be seen therefore still far away. Sometimes you can even see a falling star rain down and a romantic superstition that is popularly very widespread says that when you see a falling star you should make a wish. This heart's desire, if you keep it to yourself, is said to be auspiciously fulfilled.

If someone dreams of a shooting star, one can assume that this dreamer is probably a hopeless romantic. Usually, one associates cosmic events with luck and love. On the other hand, this symbol can also symbolize the dreamer's interest in astronomy.

In order to interpret this symbol correctly, needs and desires that concern the dreamer should be taken into consideration.

General dream interpretation

A shooting star according to the general dream interpretation is interpreted as a symbol of luck . This further announces that a long-awaited wish will finally come true in the near future. Often, however, this dream image can also bring quite unexpected joy to the house, with an event that you no longer expected. If you feel or see a shooting star falling from the sky on you, everything develops for the best in the area of love and makes hopes come true.

If the cosmic light is seen to be drifting down in the distance, then this expresses incidents of an unpleasant nature, which can be brought in connection with a partnership and its imminent end. In this case, the current life situation of the dreamer should definitely be examined and included.

In dream interpretation, the symbol of night augurs uncertainty and secrets that can overwhelm the dreamer with problems in real life. Even if a burning meteor lights up the black night sky only for a very short period of time, it illuminates the essential things inside the dreamer that plague him. The dream serves as an aid in bringing to light the dark spots in the depths and can thereby provide redemption. The dream can draw attention to what is bothering the dreamer and help him respond to it.

If one is in dreamland on an observatory and one observes a flashing fireball passing by through a telescope, something veiled and long kept secret comes to light.
