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.
Everyone dreams, every night. If you have trouble remembering your dreams, check out this post How to remember your dreams | I can’t remember my dreams for a little help. One of the more common dreams is seeing stars or dreaming of stars.
The meaning of stars in your dream can come down to a few interpretations, but often we find that some symbols are universal. When you are looking for your star dream meaning, make sure you take these ideas on board, but do your own research and meditation because (as I always say) only you can truly interpret your dreams.
What are stars?
Let’s think for a moment about what stars are. They are balls of hot gas called plasma, which is made of hydrogen and helium. Stars are formed by the gravitational collapse of large clouds of cold gas, according to The Conversation.
But to our ancestors, they were symbols of wonder and amazement. They were a chance to ponder God. They were a way to navigate the seas, to track the seasons and to wonder about what might be out there. On a dark night, stars would have provided some comfort.
What does a star dream meaning symbolise?
There are many themes that are present in stars in your dreams. Some or all of these might apply to you, so have a look at this list and see what resonates with you.
- Achieving new goals
- Setting goals
- Lofty ideals
- Help from on high
- Bigger things at work in your plan
- Finding clarity
- Seeking inspiration
- Seeking guidance
- Sudden insight
- Thinking of things that are bigger than you – seeing your place in the Universe.
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
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.
