Detailed dream meaning

Mushrooms are very symbolic and can mean quite a few different things. If in your dream you are eating mushrooms rather carelessly, this may indicate a sudden abundance of wealth. However, this is a wealth that is dealt with somewhat foolishly. In this case, you may want to be aware of how you handle your upcoming finances. Eating a mushroom that tasted bad may mean that your words have been distasteful and may have hurt or caused grief to someone you care about. If you ate a mushroom that smelled bad this may be indicative of somebody in your life being sneaky and untrustworthy.

Dreaming of a mushrooms that are growing in the ground symbolize fertility. Due to their phallus-like shape, it is generally the male fertility that they represent. If this was the setting of you dream, there might be talks of a baby in your near future. If you are not with a significant other, this may represent your need or want of a baby. It may also be possible that somebody close to you will announce that they are expecting soon. Keep in mind also that fertility is not always about having a baby. It can also be about other things that grow and prosper. Life brings many growth opportunities to us, and a dream of a mushroom might be a subtle hint from our psyche that we need to be open to changes and growth.

Mushrooms can grow anywhere, on anything, in any condition and in any climate. If the mushrooms in your dream appeared by surprise, or were given as a gift, this may indicate some exciting changes in your near future. If your psyche is alerting you to some changes, you might want to keep in mind that change also requires us to be versatile. If you are uprooted you can easily plant yourself somewhere else. Mushrooms can also represent our soul in this way and may mean that someone is ready to expose their soul to you or adversely you may be ready to share that part of yourself with someone else. In the way that that mushroom represents a soul, it also represents longevity and rebirth.
