Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

A swimming pool symbolizes your inner feelings and thoughts.

Psychologists, such as Sigmund Freud have linked what happens in our waking life with our unconscious dream world, and it totally makes sense. If you are dreaming about a swimming pool you might need to control your emotions. In Carl Jung (another dream psychologist) transcripts, a dream of water can imply that you are worried about losing your status. Yeah, it can be worrying if you dreamed of drowning or something horrible happened in the swimming pool, but having a nightmare around the swimming pool is common. I do feel, that the swimming pool represents your emotions. If you are encountering some serious feelings or you are worried about a certain life stage then this is a common dream. Nightmares involving a swimming pool often means "change" is ahead.

Water consistency

If the water in the swimming pool is clear, this means good health, but if the water is dirty, this is an omen for worries (sorry!). If the water in the swimming pool is crystal blue, then it means you are beginning to evaluate your life, and work towards a better resolution to sort out your existing problems.

Dreaming about an indoor pool?

Seeing an indoor swimming pool full of blue water in a dream indicates that your emotions are stable at the moment. The swimming pool (per say) is connected to your emotional feelings, as I have already mentioned. A large concrete pool denotes that emotions will be running high in the family but you will be fortunate. Dreaming of an inflatable pool can mean you will find a friend will do so much for you going forward.

If you dream of a clean swimming pool, it reveals your passion and symbolizes love. However, seeing an indoor pool in your dream state reveals that you’re feeling trapped or pressured by people or a situation. It’s like someone’s trying to change your nature. If you feel your soul is going through a transformation or closing up then this dream can occur. It’s like you don’t want to feel hurt by anymore, so you want to keep your emotions unspoken and escape disappointment. This dream can mean that you will not be influenced by outdoor activities or people. However, your dream might suggest that you’re doing the wrong thing by closing up and keeping everything to yourself.

Dreams about an outside pool

A swimming pool outdoors in a dream suggests that you will be lucky in love, according to old folklore. An outdoor swimming pool filled with water portends good business ahead.

If you see naked people in a dream, and if the people are men, this means you will be ashamed of something. If the naked people are women, this portends a scandal. If you see yourself naked in a swimming pool, this is the sign of dissatisfaction. Many people flocking to a swimming pool in a dream indicates that you are reshaping areas of your life.

Emotions and swimming pools

I want to expand on the symbol of the swimming pool a bit further. Swimming pools in real life are often connected with status symbols, in dreams a swimming pool is connected to your own emotions. Even if you don’t touch the water of the pool the dream has specific meanings around your own emotions. You see, water is also connected to how we interact with others. There are many social transformations around municipal swimming pools, and over the years pools have also served as stages of conflict. These feelings are stronger than when you dream of a river or sea. There are many factors within the dream of swimming to consider. For example, if you are swimming in a swimming pool and enjoying the experience, then you feel your life is secure and you feel loved.

Dreams about a private pool

To see a private swimming pool indicates a retreat from life. Normally, this indicates that you you will be socialising in the future. To see a pool fenced off in a dream can indicate that you are fighting with others. Dreaming of an private swimming pool that is your own signifies luck in love. If the pool is near your house or a part of your house, and you’re not in possession of a pool in waking life, it means you’re craving for something you think you can’t have. But actually, you do because it’s all up to you in life. Whether you have something or don’t, it’s up to you and using your own determination to get it! Of course, if it’s about possessions and materialistic things. We all know you can’t force a person to be with you.

Dreams about swimming in a pool

If you are swimming in a swimming pool in a dream, it means this is the time to finish whatever you have started and never brought to an end. If the swimming pool in your dream is filled with water, this suggests that you are going to have good perspectives in the future, and that you should use these in order to reach your goals. The action of swimming in a swimming pool shows that you are trying to overcome any problems in an effective way.

Additionally, this dream signifies the potential of a successful life. If you are on the top of the water just drifting, then it shows you need to be in a fluid situation.

What does it mean to dream of a swimming pool without water?

I have said this many times before: the water in dreams represents your inner feelings and deepest thoughts. And I have talked about the connection between water and feelings in some of my previous dream articles about water in dreams. So, taking all this into consideration, dreaming of a swimming pool without water means you are feeling a bit lost. It is of course limited because you’re dreaming of a smaller body of artificial water. However, if the swimming pool in your dream is empty and has no water at all, it represents (in 1930s dream books) someone’s bitterness. It might also reveal your wisdom and maturity. And if the pool was half-empty or had little water in it, it symbolizes a dark phase of life. Normally this happens when someone is going through some hard times and you feel empty on the inside, like something or someone has drained your feelings and left you numb. Perhaps you’ve lost something that matters to you recently, and can’t get over it.

What does it signify to dream of a dirty swimming pool?

To see a dirty swimming pool in your dream means that problems may occur. There will be a difficult experience and it certainly doesn’t awaken positive emotions. It’s a negative sign to dream of a dirty swimming pool. You’re probably worried about something that matters to you, like for example, the course of your future. This dream means that you are probably stressed and anxious about uncertainty. Also, it might also represent the setbacks and problems you’re facing right now thanks to your lack of effort or preparation. To see a pool with odd color water can indicate you are feeling overwhelmed - like something’s dragging you down and you can’t save yourself. Alternatively, something’s bothering you on the inside, and you’re not sure what is it or how to deal with it because of your mixed up thoughts.

What does swimming in a pool with someone inside symbolize?

To see yourself swimming in a pool with another person reveals your deep feelings for a person close to you. It’s most likely that you care about a certain person in waking life or you’re concerned about their life and their future. However, if you felt unpleasant swimming with this person in your dream, it reveals your negative approach or opinion of other people's actions. Perhaps you’re feeling threatened or endangered in some way by something in real life? If you were swimming with an unknown person, it can indicate that you will meet someone who’s going to win your heart at first glance, and you will fall in love.

What does it indicate to dream of an empty pool in a dream?

I have touched on this in previous paragraph about empty water. But, to expand further, an empty pool represents emptiness in waking life, just like the dream of a pool without water. So, if you’re having a dream of an empty pool, you might feel empty on the inside. Perhaps you’ve ended a relationship recently. Or lost someone or something important to you. And, you could be trying to cope with emotions that you’re feeling and the sorrow that won’t leave your side, however, you feel empty and drained at the same time.

It’s probably a confusing moment for you and you just don’t know how to deal with what has happened. Alternatively, seeing an empty pool symbolizes overcoming issues and recovery. Maybe you’re ready to fall in love again. Or that you need to socialize with new people. Or love yourself again.

What does it foretell to dream of a swimming pool party?

To dream that you’re attending, hosting or enjoying a swimming pool party means that you’re trying to cope with some positive emotions. I remember not long ago having a dream of a pool party. It can mean you are an enthusiastic, especially when it comes to meeting new people, socializing or establishing a romantic relationship with someone. In essence this means that, your dream is an expression of your lively nature and cheerful, fun attitude toward life. Alternatively, your dream might reflect your desire to live life to the full and make the most out of the time you have left. It symbolizes your desire to hang out with everyone, to make friendships and enjoy the simplicity of life.

What does it mean to dream of diving into a swimming pool?

If you’re diving into a pool in your dream, it foretells a major change that will occur in your life soon. It’s possible that you’re going through a transformation and you want to reconnect with others. Also, it can imply that you have a lot on your mind lately, and you need to take a break to figure things out. We all need a break sometimes! It’s best to dive into your emotions and clear things out before you experience a type of emotional breakdown. Alternatively, your dream means you should stop obsessing over insignificant matters - and just control elements of your life better!
