Dreamcatcher: Dancing

I woke up this morning in a bliss as I saw myself dancing with someone else in my dream. I had a similar dream last week and I thought this could mean something…

So what does it mean?

A rich symbol, dancing may have various connotations depending on the dreamer. Dancing may represent love and romance, however, it can also represent a sense of freedom from constraints. > from Dream Dictionary

~ Dance is always a good omen and it foretells many things, such as: children dancing signifies that your marriage will produce lively, happy children who are well behaved, older people shows a better business income and if you are enjoying the dance you will receive an unexpected windfall.

~ This dream is mainly favorable. If it featured ballet dancers or dancing it predicts new friends and merry social times ahead; if you saw young people dancing together, you’ll have great success in your love affairs; children dancing, you’ll have some unexpected joy; and if you were dancing yourself, all your enterprises will flourish.

~ This may be a happy dream which suggests that on some level you feel joy, happiness, and a sense of victory. If you are not in a good mood, and don’t feel very joyful, this dream may be compensatory in nature. It may be trying to balance negativity and stress that you feel in daily life. Superstition-based dream interpretation says that dreaming of dancing predicts happy times ahead. Depending on the content of this dream, it may have some sexual connotations.

~ Since the earliest times, dancing has been an important form of ritual. A man and a woman dancing together can be seen as a prelude to lovemaking, and may indicate marriage. Dancing in a group is a social activity: it can represent a desire for something, necessary to the group, to happen, or it can be a celebration that the event has occurred. Dreaming of dancing alone, however, is rather different. It can signify a solitary triumph; it may reflect the fact that, in waking life, one is unstable to express one’s personality freely; or it may be akin to appearing on stage, playing a part that does not reflect one’s true nature.

~ Dreams in which you are dancing are usually ones to be enjoyed. Nevertheless, they do have special significance, even if they are often to be accepted as mere wish-fulfillment (stifled aspirations, hopes, and desires that seemed unattainable, but remain in our subconscious and are fulfilled in dreams). It would seem that you are enjoying life. If you were performing steps or movements that you know you could never do in real life, your dream may be suggesting that you are ready to “take of” in some way in waking life. > from Dream Interpretations

(1) By virtue of its sexual associations, dancing may represent a coming together – courtship – of the masculine (animus) and feminine (anima) side of one’s nature.

(2) Joining a dance probably means relating cooperatively with the other person or group. What does that person or group symbolize? It may be some part of you: your hidden self, with its multitude of emotions, instinctive impulses, ideas, ideals, beliefs/prejudices, attitudes, ambitions, etc.

(3) Perhaps it is the ‘dance of life’. Participating/not participating in the dance would then mean relating harmoniously with Nature (or your unconscious)/being out of step with it. (Dancing clumsily may signify that you are ‘out of step’.)

(4) If the dance is a frenzied solo performance, it may represent some kind of ‘possession’, indicating that some psychic element (unconscious)is threatening to take you over. If this is the case, you need to identify the causes of any compulsive behaviour you observe in yourself; and then to come to terms with it – which will usually mean either making space in your life for some hitherto repressed part of you; or getting rid of (repressed)guilt-feelings; or both.

Dancing may be a sexual symbol, representing sexual intercourse. > from Myths-Dreams-Symbols
