Star Dream Meaning | The Meaning of Stars in Your Dream

Have you had a dream about stars? Finding out the meaning of stars in your dream is important if they are a reoccurring theme for you. My dreamer today is Edele from Clare, Ireland and she has sent me a very beautiful and interesting dream about stars.

Edele’s star dream

“I was dreaming of the night sky and star constellations. They all seemed to be marked out like in a book with the dots connected. At one point I thought they were hidden from me but they weren’t. I saw 3/4 interlocking circles in the sky in a line.”

Your star dream meaning

Star Dream Meaning | The Meaning of Stars in Your Dream | Man

Hey, lucky you, Edele – this dream is a very good omen. Stars symbolise good fortune, good luck, lofty ideals and excellence as well as achievements and success. Nice!

When you dream about stars and constellations, you are thinking of success and your true likes and goals. Stars represent the heavens to us – they are greater and more remote than man – therefore this dream may also mean that you are able (at this time) to trust in the hands of fate.

Stars also represent fame and fortune and the people that we look up to and admire. Think of the Hollywood Walk of Fame where the world’s biggest and brightest stars get an actual star laid in their name here on earth, for everyone to see.

There are also expressions such as “starry eyed” which is what we feel when we are in love, or (and I hate to say it) blinded or a bit delusional at some points. Stars can be blinding, and they are what we see when we are about to faint, so there can also be this element to the dream. Being starry eyed is defined as “having hopes and desires that are not realistic or practical” so consider this meaning as well, Edele. Your dream meanings can be interpreted when you sit and meditate on them.

Dreaming of stars is a spiritual dream

You also mention a very important part of the dream – that the stars were all interlocking and in patterns and that you thought they were hidden from you but they were not. They were intertwined in circles – meaning connection, infinity, wholeness.

This is a very special dream, Edele. This dream is showing you how your soul or spirit is an essential, interlocking part of the universe. The secrets of the universe are not hidden from you at all – they are within you, waiting for you.

What a beautiful dream, Edele. Remember, only you can truly interpret your dreams, so spend some time meditating on these thoughts and see what surfaces for you. A star dream is something very, very special. A star dream has a very spiritual context.

Sweet dreams!

    That makes so much sense when you lay it all out like that. I’ve had dreams of the stars and night sky for a few nights after that. Then I was dreaming I was jumping,but really really high,again it was night time and I was able to jump on top of a church and above it still. My dreams can be a little off the wall,I saw someone trying to steal something out of my bag so I didn’t jump any higher I came down.
    Thank you for the fantastic dream analyses I’m going to save this and go over it again later. You did a fantastic job and I was delighted to be picked. Again thank you for everything. You’re very kind.

    Hello Alice,

    Could you please interpret my dream. I had a dreamed last night about my roommate who gave me a gold ring to be arranged (the top of the ring is like a crown that I need to arrange the metal stick on it) and again she gave me another one and when I arranged it, the ring formed into a beautiful gold flower. And when I looked up the sky, there were lots of stars formed into a world map. And I saw even the map of Dubai (the place where I am staying right now).

    I had another dream a week ago, a friend of mine came to me and I saw her ring on her finger with heavens with stars and church on top of it.

    I really appreciate your time and effort.

    Thank you very much.



    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Christy,

      What a great dream. Good news for you. “To see or receive a ring in your dream symbolises emotional wholeness, continuity, commitments and honour. If the ring is on your finger, then it signifies your commitment to a relationship or to a new endeavour. You are loyal to your ideals, responsibilities, or beliefs” (source: When we see gold in our dreams – this is indicative of a spiritual reward, so again good news. Flowers again symbolise kindness, compassion, gentleness, pleasure, beauty, and gain.

      What you need to think about is what your roommate and your friend represent to you. Often when we dream of people, it is a message to ourselves. For example, when I dream of my younger sister, it’s often a symbol meaning that I want to protect and look after someone I love (because that’s what she symbolises to me).

      What traits do these 2 people bring to your life? It is these traits/these qualities that are now bringing you golden, spiritual opportunities and gifts. Well done. I think you have been doing some spiritual work and this is a sign that you are on the right track.

      All the love and strength – Alyce

  • Victoria says:

    Hi Alyce,

    Could you also interpret my dream? I was sailing and the waters are so calm and saw also other sailing boat moving across me. While I was on the boat, at the front area actually holding the rope tied to the pole, I raise my head and saw a lot of stars and they are so bright it made the sky grayish blue. I also remembered there in the dream, I felt calm and happy and was feeling the breeze.

    On another dream, I was walking on a road which is familiar because it seemed like the street in our community I used to live when I was a little child. And when I raised my head towards the sky, I saw constellations, I think it was scorpio and an aries but not so sure. The stars are connected by a thin light forming constellations.

    I hope and pray you could enlighten me with these dreams

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Victoria,
      Thanks for getting in touch about your “stars” dreams – both are very inspiring. Water symbolises your emotions, the boat symbolises the ability you have to cope with your emotions. Stars are your lofty ambitions, your guides. Regarding the dream about your childhood, I suggest you check out my post for some clues on what dreams of your childhood might symbolise. Seeing the constellation of scorpio might have something to do with the energies of that star sign – passion, intensity, loving of ambition.
      I think both dreams are very spiritual and are good signs for you. Look up at the stars tonight in your waking consciousness and see if any more clues come back to you.
      Thank you for getting in touch.


  • Mike says:

    Hi Alyce, I had a dream few days ago when I went to a religious place that I have been wanting to go for a long time. I dreamt that two stars, one below the other is moving from east to west next to a mountain, I had completely forgotten about the dream when I woke up, but yesterday it came to me that I had dreamt about this. Could you please tell me what’s the meaning of this dream?
    Kind regards,

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Mike,

      Interesting dream. 2 stars, 2 directions for you. Both seem positive. East may symbolise the sun and “inner wisdom”. West might symbolise growth, and it also represents old age, and endings. A mountain is something you have to climb in a spiritual sense; mountains have representation to our inner, spiritual work, to challenges we must overcome to reach enlightenment. I think this dream is showing you a metaphor for your entire spiritual life. East to West, then back again, over the mountain you must overcome. Nothing lasts forever; even our spiritual lifetime is finite. Seize the day – climb the mountain. Don’t leave growth until tomorrow. Start climbing your mountains now. Do not hesitate, your spiritual stars will guide your path.
      Remember that only you can truly interpret your dreams, so meditate further on these messages to see what rings true for you.

      Thanks for sharing that lovely, very spiritual dream.

      Love, Alyce

  • Vivian says:

    Hi Alyce, i dreamt that i was seeing a constellation in form of an axe in the blue night sky . What does it mean?

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Vivian,

      Thanks for your comment. I have done a bit of research and the meanings I have found for an axe are quite disparate. Some sources say they represent “control” and other sources suggest that axes mean “we need to become aware of the destructive forces within us”. I actually think that an axe is a very positive symbol. When I think of an axe I think of positive destruction. When we wield an axe, we do so deliberately. We take up a tool that is controlled by us, that can hack through things we want to destroy.

      I think the axe means you are ready to take a weapon to predisposed spiritual beliefs – you are ready for a transformation of a spiritual nature. Do not be afraid to break up those old beliefs that are holding you back. Hack, hack, hack away at the old self and cut down the tree of self-doubt and transform, so something new can grow.

      Only you can truly interpret your dreams, so I suggest you meditate on this symbol to understand the deeper meaning.

      Love, Alyce

  • Niya says:

    Hi, this morning i dreamt of my 5 year old cousin i lost from cancer. In the dream he appeared as an angel glowing white at my grandparents house outside. My family and i saw him and he pointed towards the sky while floating past us. When we looked to the sky, there was a light blue swirl like pattern with bright stars in the dark night sky. After that he disappeared back into the sky.

  • Ani says:

    Hi Alyce,
    Yesterday i had a dream where i was sitting in a car and it was driving but i was sitting backwards and looking behind me from where i could see some big mountains. From the top of the mountains something was going up in the air, like it was clouds going in a straight line. I turned back like it was nothing bt then i turned around again and i was filming it with my phone.after that i was out of the car standing on the road and it was so shiny and good day. I was really enjoying it and i was really happy. After that i saw that this things like cloud which was coming up from the mountains now was coming in my direction but not in front of me but above me in the sky,but when i looked up i was slowly looking up because i didn’t know what would be there. I can’t say that i was scared but i think i was bit more curios and afraid what i would expect.when i looked up,i saw that this cloud which was coming in front of me in the sky it was shaping in the star form and then it was fully shaped into a big star in the sky above me.I don’t know if it happened before or after but i thought sun was shining so bright(yes it was really shining so bright) so i looked another way to see where it was coming from so i saw the sun fully shaped i could see the line it was in and it was really yellow but next to it,not far away i saw black sun.In the dream i knew it was eclipse but this black sun didn’t affect anything or anyone(well there was only me).And last thing i want to say that i was so happy when i was there and i wish i could be there again.
    Thank you

  • Trang Trương says:

    Hi Alyce, recently I often dream about the house I live during chiIdhood and a dream yesterday, I was siting in the yard and it was such a starry night and a lot of stars connected together some thing like a paw-waving cat. I was very happy with my family to see it and going to take a photo of the sky. Then a star fell down to the roof of my neighbor house which is in front of our house and explode like a fire work, but then another one fell down and collapsed a house nearby. The third one fall into our yard and we were scared ran inside out house. Can you please explain that dream to me? I was very confused. Thank you very much.

  • Nikki tynan says:

    Good morning, lastnight I had a lovely dream was all a bit jumping for one place to the next but the night sky sticks in my mind, the stars where amazing in a huge circle formation and then the outside stars started falling away! And even stranger in the dream I google mapped out whereabouts and was standing in a bears food of a huge grass display!? I have no idea how to interpt my dream any ideas?

    Thanks so much

    Nikki xx

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Nikki,

      A bear you say? To see a bear in your dream represents independence, strength, death and renewal, and/or resurrection. Bears are symbolic of the cycle of life. To see green grass in your dream suggests that there is a part of yourself that you can always rely on. I think this is a very positive dream and is showing you your strength and independent nature.
      –Love, Alyce

  • Vanessa says:

    Hi Alyce! I was wondering if you could give some insight on my dream..
    I had a dream I was with my ex boyfriend sitting in a field/park at night looking up at the stars. There were other people doing the same. The stars were bright and filled the sky. We were talking, laughing and then he started throwing up. The dream was so vivid and stuck with me. Any thoughts? Thank you!

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Vanessa,

      Thanks for sharing your dream. That would have been a very unusual element to the dream, for sure. Stars are about inner and emerging spirituality on a deep level but vomiting can mean a rejection of a part of the self, or an aspect of the self. Dreammoods says: “To see someone vomiting in your dream signifies the false pretenses of people who are trying to take advantage of you” have a think about what your boyfriend symbolises to you in your waking life – what were you feeling towards him at the time of having the dream – what was going on in your lives? Was he rejecting a part of you, or were both of you trying to “release” something negative at the time? Remember that all symbols interpreted by others are just an assessment and a thought – to really understand what your dream means you need to think about what these symbols mean to you. Good luck and sweet dreams.


  • Dina says:

    Hi Alyce Vayle,
    I was wondering if you could give me some meaning of my dreams like last night I dreamed walking at the side of the lake my feet is under the water full of big black fish swimming..but before that I hooked black fish in a basin that top on my head.
    Also there’s a dream although different night I looked at the sky so bright and full of stars.
    Any thoughts pls.
    Thank you!

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Dina,

      How interesting. To see fish swimming in your dream signifies insights from your subconscious mind. Fish represent insights which have been brought to the surface. In particular, catching a white fish in your dream means that you may be questioning your spiritual beliefs, so the black fish in your dream may indicate the unknown, the subconscious, danger, mystery, darkness, death, mourning, rejection, hate or malice. The color invites you to delve deeper in your subconscious in order to gain a better understanding of yourself.
      Try meditating on your dream and see what else you can uncover.

      –Love, Alyce

  • Leandro says:

    I had dream i was looking up in the sky and the clouds looked very dark and and there 4 stars only in the sky and it looked like they were moving the clouds away then the four stars split up and disappeared
    Please help me find the meaning

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Leonardo,

      Dreaming of the numeral 4 denotes stability, physical limitations, hard labor and earthly things, as in the four corners of the earth or the four elements (earth, wind, fire and water). It also stands for materialistic matters and how you get things done.
      –Love Alyce

  • Sherri says:

    I don’t remember the beginning of my dream other than feeling very anxious. I was at a home somewhere in the country looking outside, it was very cloudy out. Then the clouds and moon became very bright and an object appeared but couldn’t make out the shape but sounded like bag pipes. Then I remember saying to the people with me how strange that was and saying something was about to happen and we had to warn people and make sure everyone knew that it was coming. And whomever was with me said its too late for them its already here, I looked up and saw nothing but clouds, then all the sudden the clouds separated and right about our heads were all the stars now in a big circle spinning around our heads. and we were in the center of it. I just kept saying how beautiful it was, I was still anxious but also at peace. The image is so vivid in my head still even though this happened a few nights ago.

  • Isaiah J. says:

    I had a dream recently in which I was standing in the middle of a big star. Please what’s the meaning of it?

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Isaiah,

      “When you dream about stars and constellations, you are thinking of success and your true likes and goals. Stars represent the heavens to us – they are greater and more remote than man – therefore this dream may also mean that you are able (at this time) to trust in the hands of fate.” Think what it symbolises that you are at the centre of this star – it’s something that only you really know. I think this is a positive dream that was sent to encourage you; telling you that you are on the correct path.
      Love, Alyce

  • Adenaw says:

    Before two weeks I have seen In my dreams a lot of stars and moon. It’s like as following the big star’s are surrounded by a lots number of small stars and they are shinning, and also their is moon at the upper Side of all stars and this was happened at mid-night! What’s this please!?

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Adenaw,

      Well, you have read my post on the spiritual nature of star dreams. “To see the moon in your dream represents some hidden, mysterious aspect of yourself.” These dreams you are having are trying to show you something about yourself – most likely the hidden nature of your own spiritual needs. I suggest you meditate on them and ask your guardians and guides for help before you go to sleep at night. Dreams are a life-long process of learning. Good luck!
      Love, Alyce

  • May says:

    Hi Alyce,

    Kindly interpret my dream.

    Last night I dreamt that I was inside the plane and landed to a mountain which has a beautiful garden. When the dark came, I saw the sky full of shinning stars and I saw a group of stars form like dolphins.And I was really amazed. Thanks

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi May,

      “To see a dolphin in your dream symbolises spiritual guidance, intellect, mental attributes and emotional trust. The dream is usually an inspirational one, encouraging you to utilize your mind to its capacity and move upward in life.” This sounds like a very moving and spiritual dream.
      Love, Alyce

  • Amber says:

    I dreamt that me, my boyfriend, his cousin, his ex, and one of their friends was in a car. I looked up at the sky(it was daylight) and I seen shooting stars. I made two wishes. Then I seen more so we parked the car and got out to watch what I guess was a meteor shower. They looked closer than usual. Then each star started to split into 3 stars and shoot off.

  • Jaan says:

    Hi!! Good evening 😉 please help me understand my dream. Just a while ago i had a dream. above of the west mountain there is a stars form into a lion. When i move closer i saw the tail of the lion has another two tails that has a color of golden yellow with black spot on it. While watching that i want take a picture of it and send it to a friend. But i cant find my fone.

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Jaan,

      Some ideas:
      LION: To see a lion in your dream symbolises great strength, courage, aggression and power. You will overcome some of your emotional difficulties.
      WEST: To dream of going west represents fulfillment, opportunities, and growth. Alternatively, west symbolises death, old age or an ending of something.
      STARS: When you dream about stars and constellations, you are thinking of success and your true likes and goals. Stars represent the heavens to us – they are greater and more remote than man – therefore this dream may also mean that you are able (at this time) to trust in the hands of fate.

      I think this is a dream about a recent spiritual journey that you have begun. I think the fact that you couldn’t take a photo of it means that this journey is personal and secret for now.

      Love, Alyce

  • MACY CHUI says:

    I had a dream where I saw stars outside a window. What does that mean?

  • MACY CHU says:

    I had a dream where I saw stars outside a window. What does that mean?

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Macy,
      To see a window in your dream signifies bright hopes, vast possibilities and insight. Stars represent our spiritual pursuits. I think this dream is showing you that you are desiring to concentrate more on the spiritual aspects of your life.
      –Love, Alyce

  • David says:

    Hi Alyce, my real name is David Joshua. I have as late been focusing on having God in my life. I had a strange dream this morning before I I woke up. I saw a group of bright stars in the shy group up in a circle together. As I was about to count them the neighbor child was crying and that woke me out of the dream. Can you help tell me the meaning of this dream please?

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi David.

      Stars and constellations are showing you the spiritual aspects of yourself in dreams. you are thinking of success and your true likes and goals. Stars represent the heavens to us. To see a circle in your dream symbolises perfection, completeness, immortality and/or wholeness. To see a circle may also serve as guidance toward self-orientation. According to Dream Moods – To see someone else crying in your dream, may be a projection of your own feelings onto someone else.

      Meditate on your dream’s meaning – particularly in the context of your focus on God.
      –Good luck and thanks for sharing

    • Alyce Vayle says:

      Hi Nikini-

      When you dream about stars and constellations, you are thinking of success and your true likes and goals. Stars represent the heavens to us. When you are showing the starts to your friends and family – you might be trying to get them “on board” for your hopes and dreams.
      Only you can truly interpret your dreams. Thanks for sharing your story.
