Cauldron dream meanings

Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

In fairy tales and scary stories, witches brew potions and magical spells inside of their cauldrons. Through this cauldron, witches gain the power and authority they need to transform lives. They create spells that toy with your emotions and make people into shape shifters.

A witch’s cauldron is an expert at turning people into what they are not. For these reasons, cauldrons in your dream can represent a change in your personality. Because the witches using the cauldron are in control of others’ lives, the cauldron can also represent the power you hold over your life and the lives of others.

In your dream you may have

  • Used a cauldron to make a potion.
  • Used a cauldron to cast a spell.
  • Used a cauldron to make a meal such as soup.
  • Been affected by a spell from a cauldron.
  • Seen a cauldron.
  • Seen a regular person use a cauldron.
  • Seen a witch using a cauldron.
  • Been inside of a cauldron.
  • Seen somebody else inside of a cauldron.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • The cauldron was used for a positive purpose.
  • The cauldron was not threatening in any way.
  • You felt safe around the cauldron.
  • The potion made in the cauldron was for a selfless purpose.

Detailed dream interpretation

A dream about a cauldron can show the amount of power you have over your own life or the lives of others. Sometimes, you know exactly why you are casting a spell in a cauldron in your dream (love potion, transforming a person, etc.). Most of the time, however, you have no idea why the cauldron was there, what its purpose was, or what the potion was that was being brewed.

If you do not know the purpose of the cauldron in your dream, you may be feeling as if you are not in control. Your life or the life of someone close to you has gone so far from what it used to be that you do not know what to do. You want to morph yourself or someone else into something that they are not or something that they used to be. You must learn to accept things the way they are, because this is not possible in the real world.

If you are the person casting the spell in your dream, look carefully at who the person is. If this person is a close friend, family member, or partner, then this is a person who you are feeling increasingly distanced from. You may have once had a tremendous influence on this person, but now you are not so sure you do.

If you dream of casting a spell on someone with a cauldron, and this person was a stranger or acquaintance, the dream has to do with your influence on others. You are not confident when you meet other people, because you do not feel as if you make a good impression.

If you see someone else using a cauldron, then you are feeling controlled by other people. Whether the cauldron user in your dream was a witch or a person you knew, you may be feeling like you do not have any control over your own life. It is the same if you see yourself stirring a cauldron in your dream.

If you know the purpose of the potion that was brewing in the cauldron in your dream, look at this potion to figure out what the dream was about. However, brewing a potion is ultimately a selfish act. If you brew a potion in your dream, you are usually doing it for your own selfish reasons. Remember that you cannot always make others bend to your will. However, if your dream is of an unselfish cauldron potion (such as curing a loved one’s illness), it is a sign of your selflessness.

This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life

  • Control over your own life and the lives of others.
  • Helping other people and yourself.
  • Confidence level at first impressions.
