Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings
Castles bring many images into people’s minds, so interpreting a castle dream may be difficult unless you look into the specific circumstances. Castles are symbolic of luxury, finances, greed, extravagance, family, marriage, loyalty, and space.
Any and all of these symbols may be transferred to your castle dream.
In your dream you may have
- Lived in a castle.
- Visited a castle.
- Seen a castle.
- Climbed a tower of a castle.
- Built a castle.
- Noticed a castle where it didn’t belong.
- Seen a picture of a castle.
- Believed you belonged in the castle or lived in the castle in your dream.
- Been part of the royal family in your castle.
- Bought a castle.
- Had too much space in your castle.
Positive changes are afoot if
- Your experience was generally pleasant.
- Positive changes must be judged by the specific circumstances of the situation.
Detailed dream interpretation
Castles are extremely large spaces with many rooms where you can easily hide out and be alone. On the other hand, castles of people such as the royal family are usually in the public eye. Because of this, there is a contradiction between the privacy you believe you have in a castle and the privacy you actually have.
Dreaming of a castle indicates that you need private space in your life. You are finding it difficult to be by yourself, even when you are physically by yourself. Put your social life away (including cell phones and laptops) for an entire day. You will feel relieved and distressed knowing you did not have to be an expert communicator and that for one day you could have time to yourself.
What is important is that before you can open up to other people, you have to let down your barriers in order to achieve the best possible outcome. Castles have the most secure walls, doors, and gates, and are often staunch and unapproachable. You may put up far too many barriers when it comes to communication. Break down those walls for the people closest to you first, and gradually work on sharing little things with strangers who need them.
A castle also represents a fantasy object. Castles exist within fairy tales, and are often the setting for an unrealistic love story. You may be setting unrealistic goals and expectations for yourself. You are waiting for you fairy tale to come true instead of working to make it happen. In life, things are not always perfect. Focus on being comfortable and happy rather than on becoming perfect.
If there was a castle somewhere strange in your dream, such as in a row of houses, you are feeling unsure of your goals and dreams in life. Decide what it is you want to do soon, because your subconscious is reminding you your time is running out.
If you sneak into a castle in your dream, you are taking action to make your dreams come true. This is one (dream) scenario in which criminal activity is acceptable. You are doing everything you can to achieve the luxury and financial stability that a castle affords.
If you wander from room to room in your castle, you are actually afraid of being alone. You are looking for someone to share your figurative “castle” with, but you just cannot seem to find that person. Right now, you are settling for less than what you deserve. You should be sharing your castle with somebody who makes you feel complete.
This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life
- Loneliness and relationships.
- Extravagance and luxury.
- Trying to find that special someone.
- Lifelong goals and dreams.
- Space and privacy.
