Detailed dream interpretation

Termites are insects which are associated with words like sabotage, erosion, change, attack, subterfuge, stealth and destruction.

The termites carry on their business of destruction over a large span of time unnoticed by anyone. The work they do normally, goes unnoticed because they do it in the background and hidden beneath the surface leaving the exterior to look the same.

They eat away at wooden structures from within, leaving the external surface as it is, until the day when the structure collapses suddenly under its own weight.

This symbolism of the termite tells you to be aware of external influences which are launching attacks or your inner soul and beliefs and making you weak from inside. Just as the termites make a piece of wood hollow from inside, your beliefs are also getting diluted and may prove dangerous to you in the future.

The sight of termites in your dream means that there is a chance that your fortune or finances may suddenly increase in the near future. But the increase is temporary as everything may come crashing down any moment after that. It reminds you not to feel elated by this increase but prepare for the sudden crash.

The termites in your dream stand for some relationship in real life which you have been trying to end for some time but have been dilly dallying with it. The dream tells you to finish it off as soon as possible without any more delay.

You may have been dreaming of buying a house for some time now, but you have been facing problems in acquiring it. The termite in your dream signifies that your problems are gnawing at your wish, ultimately making it futile.

You may be in a position where you are under strain from an unassailable situation in your real life. The termites in your dream signify that your position is likely to break down under this stress.

It also signifies that a phase of your life is coming to a slow end because of the influence of some external forces.

Just as woodwork in real life suddenly collapses under the relentless onslaught of termites, your dreams are also being undermined by some external force which you are unable to control. All of a sudden you may find your smooth life starting to crumble into a heap before your own eyes, which you had least expected.

The slow and lengthy process of erosion of beliefs and morals are also signified by an image of termites in your dream. The dream reminds you to take prompt action to stop this erosion as soon as possible.
