Right, in my view, to dream of a fetus is generally an indication that you have become aware of yourself and your greater spiritual power. Dreaming of a fetus symbolizes a new relationship about to develop or an idea that recently has taken off. It is the sign of something creative and your desire to do something else in life. Alternatively, you can express difficulties in certain situations or with some relationships you have in life. The fetus in your dream can work as a metaphor for your new career or your new business project. If the fetus is born prematurely or dies in a dream, this represents a concern about a project or a relationship that will not survive and will soon die.

A fetus in a mother’s womb appearing in your dream suggests new initiatives and activities that you will soon need to bring to an end. An embryo in your dream is a sign that you will focus on a specific activity going forward, but also your desire and frustration have surfaced because you are not yet taken seriously in your line of work. The embryo can also suggest that you are going to return to a past moment that could tell you more about yourself.

What a wonderful dream to have. If you notice a small baby in the womb during the dream this is connected to our biological evolution of mankind. This dream often mirrors our own development in life as an individual. From a psychic perspective, it can mean growth in life. This dream is associated with what Jung described as the cosmogenic interpretation of the “human consciousness” so it could just be you noticed images of a baby in the waking world that influenced your dream.
