Dream Meaning: From 24 Different Sources

Blue is a cool, calming color, often used for relaxation and meditation. Historically, it bears associations with spirituality and is representative of truth, intellect, and justice. Within the world of dreams, blue is often thought to be a symbol of the conscious mind, especially if the dream features blue skies. A shimmering bright blue may suggest feelings of well-being and tranquility.

Muddy shades of blue may denote depression or moodiness. A darker shade of blue points more to the unconscious and a readiness to liberate yourself from repressed feelings. Dark angry blue may suggest feelings of isolation and an undependable character.

If you see anyone wearing dark blue in your dream, it should act as a general warning not to be too trusting in waking life.

If someone paints with the color blue on you, you may be deceived by someone you trusted.

Clear blue water in a dream is often interpreted as a sign that the dreamer should pay attention to their emotional needs because blue, as with color in general, is a symbol of the emotions. The appearance of a blue precious stone may indicate freedom from a particular burden in waking life. Blue clothes are linked to notions of masculinity and the male part of the dreamer’s psyche. Pale blue is traditionally the color in which baby boys are clothed, so, if you are about to become a parent, could you be thinking about a baby son? Light blue reflects the vastness of space, the sky and the infinite possibilities of spiritual development. It represents moral values and high standards, open-mindedness, intellect and steadfastness of purpose, so, if you have decided on a particular course of action, its appearance in your dream may be a positive signal from your unconscious that you should trust your decision.

Blue birds represent hope and liberation. Blue smoke is connected to new projects and a beautiful blue vase may suggest that you are in a state of emotional contentment. When this color appears in your dreams, it is probably a message from your subconscious telling you to relax, think things through and take things one step at a time. Depending on the context of your dream, the color blue may also be a metaphor of ‘being blue’ and feeling sad; you may, however, want to take off ‘into the blue’ to enjoy a more adventurous, unpredictable existence? Keywords: truth, intellect, communication, wisdom, heaven, eternity, devotion, tranquility, loyalty and openness.


Points to faithfulness and deep emotions, but also to the desire for relaxation.

It is the symbolic color of the soul, since blue also symbolizes the depth of the sea and the expanse of the sky. It also stands for the unconscious, as well as isolation, expanse, and infinity. It stands for pure, clear Water, distant mountains, and sky. Blue symbolizes nature that has been saved. Pay attention to the degree of brightness!

The color blue may also indicate fogginess (like drunkenness); see also Alcohol.

It is also a symbol of depression (“I am feeling blue”). And last, but not least, a symbol of cold (particularly metallic blue).

Blue can also, as in the case of “blue mountains,” symbolize the connection between heaven and earth— spirit and nature. Blue coats were worn by wise women, pointing to our connection to water, mist, and heaven.

Blue is also the color of the cape worn by Mary; the womb that bore Christ is a symbol for the “sacred vessel.”

In alchemy, blue is the color of the moon, standing in for silver, and blue is also the color of the soul.

As opposed to Red, blue indicates a soothing, cool state (in color therapy, blue is considered relaxing).

In the Orient, blue is the equivalent of black and is considered the color of the underworld.

In Egypt, the underworld of Osiris is depicted in blue or black.

The Sufi (a mystical circle, followers of Mohammed) saw blue as the center of a flame, the expression of the highest form of passion.

A reflection of blue as an expression of passion is also found in our culture in the phrases “the blue hour / ’ and “blue movies”; also the “blues” in music.

ASTROLOGY: A symbol of Neptune.


(1) Blue may sometimes symbolize the universal or collective unconscious (as distinct from the individual unconscious).. Perhaps the dream is asking you to base your life on intuitions that come from a deep source within your psyche.

(2) Alternatively, blue may represent the power of the conscious mind, particularly if it is the blue of the sky.

(3) Dark blue may be associated with depression - ‘the blues’.

(4) Blue clothing may symbolize masculinity. Tony Crisp (in his Dream Dictionary) observes that women sometimes dream of threatening men dressed in blue - dark blue or navy. Such a dream should motivate the dreamer to get in touch with her animus and enter into dialogue with it, with a view to establishing a more positive relationship both with the masculine in herself and also with real men in the external world. Perhaps examining her relationship with her father will be the key to understanding her negative attitude towards men and masculinity.

(5) The blue sea may symbolize the unconscious or the feminine (anima, mother, or Great Mother).

See also Mother. For anima) below.

(6) At an advanced level of mystical awareness, I understand blue may represent the primal energy from which the universal life-force comes. (In mythology the primeval ocean is that from which all other things arise; though, strictly speaking, the primeval ocean is not itself a thing: it is without form or shape but contains the potential for all forms and shapes.)


Blue is the color of communication and connects to the body through the throat and the thyroid gland. There is a connection between our metabolic activity, which is regulated by the thyroid, and the effectiveness of our communication. Through our voice, we communicate with others, but it is through our energy levels that we commune with our immediate environments. Other communication concepts associated with this color are the blueprints that communicate the structure of something not yet created.

The call of a hospital emergency is known as a “code blue.” Before a brochure or magazine page is printed, the early version used to finalize the design and layout is known as the “blue line.” When blood circulation diminishes due to a drop in body temperature, the lips will turn blue and communication will be hindered. These are but a few examples that may not relate to a specific image; however, when the color blue is prominent in your dream, incorporate issues of communication into your interpretation.
