Mystic Dream Dictionary is a collection of various subjects one might encounter in a dream, with meanings gathered from a variety of sources.

Understanding dream symbolism is a personal enterprise. The meaning of any symbol may be entirely personal, or cultural, or part of our shared human consciousness. To complicate the matter, many hold that the world of dreams is like a mirror, in which we actually see reverse images, so that whatever we see actually possesses the opposite meaning of what it might connote in the waking world. Without bias to any one theory, we have included meanings from a variety of sources. Should you find yourself unable to comprehend the symbols in your dream, this dictionary serves to give you some ideas that may likely apply.

In some instances, lucky numbers are included. This is a tradition found in many an old dream book, working from the belief that each symbol that stands out in a dream has a number associated with it, and that these may be used to your advantage in games of chance.


Do any of the following speak to you?


DOLPHIN: To dream of a dolphin, shows to seafaring men a wind from the place whence you dream he cometh.

But to dream you see the dolphin out of water, signifies the death of friends.

-from The Witches’ Dream Book, and Fortune Teller
-by A.H. Noe


NOSE: Dreaming one has a fair and great nose, is good to all; for it implies subtlety of sense, providence in afFairs, and acquaintance with great persons.

But to dream one has no nose, means the contrary; and to a sick man, death; for dead men’s heads have no nose.

If any one dreams his nose is larger than ordinary, he will become rich and powerful, provident and subtle, and be well received among grandees.

Dreaming one has two noses, implies discord and quarrels.

If one dreams that his nose is grown so big that it is deformed and hideous to the sight, he will live in prosperity and abundance, but never gain the love of the people.

If any one dreams his nose is stopped, so that he hath lost his scent, it signifies he is in danger from a supposed friend.

-from Napoleon’s Oraculum, and Dream Book




-to hold a stick foretells mourning;

-to use it as a prop, instability of fortune;

-to beat any one with it shows you are charitable;

-to receive a beating with one predicts trouble and lawsuits.

ZEBRA: To dream, of seeing a zebra, is a sign of a quarrel: if you imagine that somebody presented you with one of these animals, or that you have purchased it, it foretells, to a young man, that he will marry a rich but quarrelsome wife, and that she will be constantly annoying him by bragging of her property.

Yeast: If a young housewife dreams that she is kneading bread with yeast, she may conclude that she will be the mother of a large family of children.

WALLS: To dream you are walking on a crazy, old and narrow wall, denotes that you will engage in some very dangerous enterprise, that will cause you much trouble and vexation; if you get down without hurting yourself, or the walls falling, then you will succeed; if the wall should fall whilst you are upon it, you will be disappointed.

-If you are  walking between walls, and the passage is very narrow and  difficult, you will be engaged in some quarrel, or other disagreeable affair, from which it will require great circumspection and caution on your part to disengage yourself; but if you get from between them safe, you will settle well in life, marry an agreeable partner, have children, and become rich and happy.


-from The Model Book of Dreams, Fortune Teller, and Epitome of Parlor Entertainments
-by Henry Temple, and Cordelia M. Ottley


Velvet: To dream you trade with a stranger in velvet and other silks, is a sign of profit and joy.

FALLING: To dream of falling means a sudden improvement in your condition.
