Incest dream meanings


Having a dream of incestuous practices means erotic desires means that you are trying to express yourself. Also, your dream represents the relationship between masculine and feminine.

You probably are in a phase of your life in which you are neither child, nor adult, and this dream may be the symbolic union between the adult and the child in you. Alternatively, if you have recently argued with a family member, and you express your desire to reconcile, then the dream can describe forgiveness. Or maybe you are in a relationship with someone who reminds you of your mom or your dad, or another family member…


 In your dream you may have…

  • You commit incest.
  • You see someone committing incest.

 Positive changes are afoot if...

  • You become more understanding with yourself.
  • You accept what you are in life.
  • You give love in order to receive love.

Detailed dream interpretation: The story of Oedipus the King has as main theme the incest between a mother and son, and its tragic end. Oedipus is drastically punished for his incestuous actions. He loses his eyesight, while his descendants are also punished for oedipus’s incest. Therefore the incest is a very strong symbol even if it simply appears in the dream world. In the ancient myths like the one of oedipus, incest between gods and goddesses was a way to obtain innocence, purity, and energy, and therefore a dream about incest could omen the need to clean your own strength.

Incestuous dreams fully disturb the one who has them, believing that he or she sees in them an unconscious desire or a perversion. Freud says that such dreams ignore the demands of morality. An incestuous dream does not represent the repressed desire, and you do not need to get out of your mind if you had such an image in your dream. Through this dream you can only express the desire to get closer to your daughter or son, and to tighten your emotional ties.

If you dream of incest, this can be the omen of a progress in art. Any dream in which incest occurs is a sign that you must try to keep high standards by which to guide yourself in all areas of life. The incest can refer to your fear of love and sexual maturity.

The dream about incest connects your personality with the one of your incest victim, and this can occur in a dream only. Any dream of incest does not have a sexual connotation, but on the contrary. Usually such a dream symbolizes your unconscious longing for the love from your mother, father or sibling. Sometimes a dream about incest with a family member could mean that person needs your help, and your unconscious has perceived this signal and it lets you know you should look after that person. The same dream can refer to your homesickness and nostalgia in regard to your incest victim.

The Arabic tradition of dream interpretation claims that dreaming about incest suggests that you are acting against your nature, while the Western tradition suggests that you might lose respect or money. Incest in a dream can foretell that you will lose your honor.

If you are a man and you dream about incest with your daughter, this is the symbol of your fear about your erotic desires. If the incest in the dream occurs between siblings, it is a reference to your secret wish to be loved more. The dream has a double meaning, in the sense that it can refer to the general meaning of incest, and the personal aspect of it. You should consider the personal meaning for your interest.


Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of incest: Disgusted. Anxious. Terrified. Surprised. Worried. Confused. Upset. Overwhelmed. Offended. Insecure. Upset. Angry. Scared. Strange. Insecure. Furious. Tired. Lazy. Sad.
