Halloween is a time of year full of decorations, costumes, and surprises. If you’re dreaming about the holiday outside its regular season, then there may be deeper meanings to explore in your sleep-time stories. Did you dream about Halloween? Sometimes dreams can be the mind being excited or refreshment of recent memories. If it’s close to October, then your dream could have some symbols and deeper interpretations from our article here on this topic!
Dreaming about Halloween can tell you a lot more than just what outfit to wear. It could mean that your true self is trying to be hidden, and an alter ego comes out instead- sometimes temporarily. Pay attention to the type of costumes others are wearing or pretending to be when they’re around if this rings true for yourself as well, so you know better how these characters may represent facets of who we want (or think) ourselves being in our lives! Dreaming that your boss is dressed in a pirate costume might indicate how you feel about the coworker’s behavior. If you dream of dressing up as a doctor, it can mean nurturing and hearing other people’s wounds with kindness.
As the trick-or-treat event approaches, so does childhood. We all have memories of Halloween that we enjoy and those that haunt us from when life was simpler. Perhaps you were young once too with parents who took your hand in theirs as they walked down neighborhood streets to collect candy like it was their treasure map? Trick or treating is not only about delicious sweets but also our collective pasts; remembering being children again for just one night before returning to reality where breakups happen, jobs are lost, babies cry late into the evening hours (or early morning), and bills pile up on desktops awaiting payment.
We love this holiday because there’s something magical about giving out candies while getting them yourself! The dream-state of trick-or-treating can represent a desire to escape one’s current life. If you are the only person in your dreams going door to door, be wary; it may indicate that others have taken control over an aspect or situation in your real world and imposed their will on you without giving much consideration for what you want.
