In the Persian tradition, lots of sand in a dream omens misfortune. For the Western tradition, this dream portends daily teasing. The Eastern tradition says that it predicts uncertainty, indecision, and instability.

If your dream involves sand dunes or an extra long golden sand beach, then this signifies emotion between yourself and someone of the opposite sex. Sitting naked on a sand beach is a sign that you are going to start a new interesting project. If you are wearing a swimsuit, you will have to answer for whatever you talked about some people. If you dream of pulling a small boat on the sand beach, this is a sign that you will ask someone for help in regard to money. Sandy beaches are connected to your holiday memories and your inner wish to get some rest.

Sand in a dream is associated with waste and vastness, so the question you should ask yourself is what aspect of yours is eternal and what obstacles hinder your spiritual growth. Both sand and the sea are symbols of emotional instability and insecurity. If the sand in your dream is in an hourglass, this is a warning that your time is running out. Generally, sand symbolizes the passing of time and the temporarily of everything, including our lifetimes. Therefore, a dream of sand often means that you are afraid of aging and even death.

Dreaming of sandcastles is a reflection of uselessness, because sandcastles will be washed away by the sea, but at the same time, they are a strong symbol of impermanence that should teach us how material needs are useless. If the dream of sandcastles is somehow connected to your work, this means whatever you are trying to build at work and in your life is impermanent, short lasting, and in the end, illusory.


If in your dream you see a sandstorm, this portends a loss in your life. If you are caught in this sandstorm, it means you are now undermining your own existence. A sandstorm omens the breakdown of your achievements. Seeing sand in a dream indicates that an uncertain relationship in your life will disturb you considerably, and this is a reminder to not waste your energy on it.

Walking on sand means the deals you are into at the moment are unsafe. Shoveling sand is the omen of high profit, provided you bring some appreciation into the equation. Dreaming of scattering sand portends the waste of your property. If you feel you have sand in your mouth, this means someone will make you really angry.
