Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Courtyards are an interesting part of the architecture of a home or building, because they allow you to be outside while you are inside of the building. Courtyards are also usually lavish and expensive to add onto a building. For these reasons, courtyards are associated with wealth, material possessions, communication, openness, and self-expression.

A courtyard is a very expensive piece of architecture that very few homes and businesses can brag about. To have a courtyard appear in your dream is unique and out of the ordinary. Your mind is having unusual thoughts about a special or unusual person in your life. It could also be a sign of future wealth or prosperity. A dream about a courtyard says that you will encounter riches or you will come across something large and expensive at some point in the near future.

In your dream you may have

  • Been in a courtyard.
  • Looked out onto a courtyard.
  • Built a courtyard.
  • Seen one appear in a building where there is not usually a courtyard.
  • Had a serious discussion in a courtyard.
  • Longed to escape to the courtyard.

Positive changes are afoot if

  • You worked out a serious, important discussion in the courtyard of a home or building.
  • You escaped from a tough situation into a courtyard.
  • You only spent a brief period of time in the courtyard.
  • You felt relief upon arriving in the courtyard.

Detailed dream interpretation

A courtyard is truly unique when you think about it. It is a little slice of the outdoors right inside your home or building. It is a place inside of the building where you can suddenly be outside among the fresh open air. Your dream about a courtyard may also relate to openness, communication, drama, stress, and the need to get away.

If you leave a large building in your dream and enter into a courtyard, your work life, school, or finances have been stressing you out. You have a lot on your mind and you long to go outdoors and escape the pressures of the financial side of your life. You spend too much time thinking of your future and not enough time focusing on the present.

If you leave a home in your dream and enter into a courtyard, then your family life or relationships are causing you stress. Something has been on your mind and you have been feeling the need to go out into the open and say something about it, but you are too afraid of hurting the people you love. You are being too hard on yourself. Don’t be afraid to communicate openly.

If you felt trapped in the courtyard, then you are not taking your life seriously enough. The courtyard serves as a vacation in your own home (or office). If you are stuck in the courtyard or you never want to leave, you have extended your vacation for too long. You might want to consider taking your job and your home life more seriously.

Many dreams about courtyards involve long conversations. You may be talking about the weather or nothing in particular in this dream, or you may have had a serious philosophical discussion or an argument. If the conversation is relaxed and not argumentative, the person you were talking to is a soul mate or confidante. This is a person you rely on and a person you can trust. If it was an argument with no resolution, this person has been frustrating you and you may want him or her to back away for a little while. If it is a serious discussion or an argument where there is a resolution, this is another important person in your life.

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

  • Relationships with others.
  • Work, school, and finances.
  • Home life, family, and romantic relationships.
  • Communication with others.
