Some people have a fascination with castles. These structures are not just man-made fortresses meant to protect a settlement from outside aggressors; they often serve as a physical embodiment of some kind of ideal or aspiration. However, if you are reading this article, it is probably not because you are a fan of castles or architecture in general but rather that you have recently had a dream about the castle.
So, what does it mean to dream about a castle?
A dream about castle may symbolize your need to surround yourself with protection, security, and peace. You may be feeling threatened or unsafe in your current situation. You may want to surround yourself with a strong protective wall of family or friends to shield you from danger or hurtful situations.
If you are in the process of moving or are planning to move in the near future, this dream could mean that you will feel good and safe in your new apartment or house.
Another thing this dream represents is something big in your life that is happening or will happen. As the castle symbolizes protection, strength, authority, dominance, and wealth, it could be a change related to the wedding or, for example, a larger amount of money.
The meaning of this dream varies depending on what you did in the castle, how you felt or who you were there with. For example, if you were hiding there from something, it could mean that you are worried about your privacy or you are afraid of competition. If you were happy there or ate food with other people at the big table, it means that you will be satisfied in your “new life” (e.g. after a wedding) and you will achieve what you desire. If you were standing outside and looking at the castle from a distance, it could indicate your desire for luxury life and wealth, or for the person who would take care of you.
The dream is the mirror of your unconscious mind. Interpret it in light of its symbolism or whatever meaning you give to it. The symbolism gives you your own lesson and it is up to you to figure out how to deal with the dream in your waking life. So never take any dream literally because a dream can have many meanings and each one of us interprets it differently.
