repair, create, life change, patience, time out, accuracy, care

The figure of the watchmaker is a popular character in many novels and movies. He builds and repairs what is crucial for us to perceive time, either because it stands still or because it passes too quickly. Which gives it a relative and strongly symbolic character. It symbolizes therefore our subjective perception and our life time that still remains.

A watchmaker is intimately familiar with the construction and operation of a watch, knows every cog and nail in it. What does this figure symbolize according to dream interpretation?

General dream interpretation

If a watchmaker is working on a watch in your dream, it can be understood as a sign of your own lifetime. This dream image should remind the dreamer that nothing is eternal or immortal in this world. The dream symbol is meant to make the person aware that they are mortal.

Likewise, the watchmaker in a dream also announces the way in which the dreamer implements his life tasks or how he judges himself in accomplishing them. Perhaps he senses a certain overburdening in real life and is looking for support. He possesses the gift of accuracy and diligence, but this sometimes gets in his way and makes him neglect respective obligations. On a different note, the dreamed watchmaker in the dream may also make the dreamer want to take some time off. Most likely, the dreamer desires a period of regeneration to recuperate.

If the watchmaker in the dream is repairing his own watch because it has become broken or has simply stopped, this also illustrates the desire for a period of rest. In addition, perhaps even a coarser change in the life style of the person concerned is necessary. Seen in this way, the watchmaker symbolizes the threshold of the transition from one phase of life to the next, a conclusion that precedes the new beginning.

Psychological dream interpretation

For psychological dream interpretation, a watchmaker in a dream embodies the inner confrontation with one's own lifetime. Whether years or days or hours, no one can see into the future. On an unconscious level, the preparatory process for an imminent transformation has already begun and he looks forward to it calmly. New insights and orientations can arise in real life as a result of this and the objective is also suddenly different. He sees the imminent change as a challenge and a chance for inner development and is highly motivated about it.

If the dreamer himself appears in the dream in the form of the watchmaker, this augurs that things are ahead of him which are quite demanding and may involve complications. More patience will be required of the dreamer in the future in order to fulfill his obligations reliably and properly.

Spiritual dream interpretation

If the dreamer is looking for a watchmaker in the dream plane, this symbol of spiritual dream interpretation represents after irregularity that unbalances the natural rhythm of life of the person concerned.
