Dream symbol Well


fountain, baroque angel, depth, romantic sight, bubbling joy, fountain of youth

A fountain is made to bring water up from the depths of the earth. In many gardens we know graceful fountains that sprout their fountains from baroque angels or Greek goddesses, creating a romantic atmosphere in the midst of flower gardens and meadows.

From old days we know the custom to turn with the back to the well and to throw a coin over the right shoulder into the well while making a wish. Beware of what you wish for, it could come true. Especially if you meet a frog from the edge of the well, you should not hesitate in trying to kiss him, who knows, maybe fairy tales are not fairy tales....

General dream interpretation

The general dream interpretation interprets the fountain as a dream symbol for a mental pain. Groundbreaking changes are announced to the dreamer in his life. A new phase of life is imminent, a "fountain of youth", which stands for new freshness and new spirits.

Bubbling or clear well water means increase of happiness and cheerfulness in good company.

The mere sight of a well in a dream may indicate that a budding love affair may soon turn into deeper feelings. However, if the well is dried up in the dream, it is interpreted as a sign of the feeling of inner emptiness and loneliness, furthermore, it can also signal a negativepremonition regarding future plans.

Symbolically, the drawing of fresh water from the well for the general interpretation is the FULFILLMENT of the most secret desires of the dreamer, on the other hand, as the connection with another person.

In general terms, it is also important to consider the appearance of the water. Depending on whether the person in question is scooping out clear or murky water, the bond with the person in question is of a faithful or false nature.

Include all the details you saw in your sleep so that an accurate message of your dream can be determined.

Falling into a well in a dream brings the dreamer surprising luck in waking life, according to general dream interpretation.

Similarly, this dream situation can be seen positively as a confirmation that already successfully used the available resource and opportunities.

Negative dream symbol

If the water overflows from a well, it brings failure and setback to the dreamer in reality. To be understood as a warning , if the sleeper gives another person well water to drink, as this signals that not every person around him is trustworthy.

This dream situation could well be a sign that existing, hidden cravings could harm the dreamer.

Psychological dream interpretation

In psychological dream interpretation, a fountain symbolizes an archetypal symbol of revival or rebirth or the bubbling living . "Well" can also stand for the heaped-together life wisdom of the unconscious, not yet available, tucked away in hidden corners, ready to be grasped at the right time of maturity.

When this happens, the sleeper in the dream receives the knowledge as a message, and then knows how to use it in the future in life and is invited to strive for a deeper SELF-knowledge, which leads to inner peace and balance. This dream image can also mean recovery or signal wish fulfillment.

The path to healing is through connection to the intuitive, conscious self. So the advice is to get in touch with the inherent deep wisdom.

In a psychological sense, a well filled with water in a dream signifies to the dreamer that there is a pool of multitude of life opportunities from which to draw.

Also, a "well" in a dream in this context indicates envy, which the dreamer could possibly encounter in real life through various people.

The filling up of a well in a dream is related to the dreamer's fear of women. The theme of prejudiced bias against the female sex is in the foreground.

The sight of one's own reflection in the well betrays mischief.

Spiritual dream interpretation

The spiritual symbol for "fountain" represents the depth of the unconscious, which wants to be illuminated in order to finally reach the wholeness of being.
