Detailed dream interpretation

A dream featuring Egypt is believed to represent the potential for change in your life. If you dream about Egypt, your subconscious may be hinting that you are not living the sort of life that you were meant to lead. You should meditate in order to learn more about yourself, become better acquainted with your character, and grow in understanding of your inner spirit. Maybe you need a new career or a new spouse. Maybe you just need to make a smaller change: take up a new hobby or interest, get a pet if you don’t already have one, try something new.

Disturbing dreams featuring plagues, droughts, slavery, mummies, or other troublesome imagery can indicate issues and feelings that have been buried in the subconscious mind, and ought to be addressed. Troublesome dreams like these can signify that you feel like your life is seriously out of control. Remember that the ancient Egyptians lived and thrived in drought-like conditions by planning their lives around the periodic flooding of the Nile. If you are having these dreams, you might also suffer from adverse conditions in your own life. Learn to adapt to those conditions; not struggle against them.

Pyramids are often seen as symbols of change. A dream that prominently features pyramids can indicate that your life is about to experience drastic changes, for the better or for the worse. You should be proactive and attempt to improve your life in some significant way.

If the pharaoh appears in your dream, it may signify that the expectations that you are setting for yourself are out of character. Try adopting a new goal which differs from the goals you’ve adopted in the past. If you find that most of your aspirations center around money or other worldly gains, then perhaps you should attempt a more qualitative undertaking. If, on the other hand, you find yourself to be flighty and squiggly, perhaps you should try something with a more practical bent.

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

  • Moving up in the world in regards to your status.
  • Freedom of expression.
