Cave Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Cave Dream Symbol – Caves represent a safe place to hide away from the world. Dreaming of caves is a good sign as long as you do not retreat from the world for too long. Negatively, it can mean you have feelings of loneliness and unhappiness.

Caves can also symbolize sexuality. Trapped in a cave with someone else indicates sexual control of some kind. Being in a cave alone for a long time can mean you have withdrawn from the world in your real life. You may need to seek real help and support. You need to make the effort to go out in the world more.

Caves can symbolize your creativity. Wishing to be alone in a cave signifies you want to speak out but something stops you. It can also mean you desperately want to complete something that keeps dragging on. You just want it to end.

Feeling you have no creativity indicates you need to take time out to work on something new you have wanted to start for a while. Make sure that if you take time out alone that you use it wisely. This type of dream can mean you need to take a holiday or give yourself a special treat. Spending too much time in your cave can mean you take an extended vacation or you have hidden yourself away for too long in your waking world.

When you seeing something like a wolf or dragon guarding a cave, it is a sign that you have either got or are getting control of something previously out of your control. Your life is going to improve. This may be a time for perseverance and to look at your problems with a positive attitude.

  1. In my dream i was in a cave with a man and we were trying to figure out how to make this special island from outting the pieces of the map together, another man then came in wanting the map. He was riding around on a hair dryer submarine when he got out me and the man jumped in with the map and got away. What does this mean i’m so confused?

    • Hello this description made my heart jump… I just had a dream about a huge party that was going on in a cave with loads of people and all was good until the whole cave started to rumble. I didn’t notice the rumbling because I mistook it for the loud music and because the cave was so dimly lit with flashing rave lights I didn’t notice the people running out. The second I realized an earthquake was causing the cave to collapse I began to run but the floor gave out underneath me and I was toppled by and avalanche of rocks and woke up in a great panic. This is the first time I’ve dreamt of truly knowing I died and I immediately searched for a meaning… the significance of this to your description is that my birthday is on Aug 1 the same day your family member passed away, and that you also dreamt of a cave collapsing. I am a girl too like your sister… this is an eerie coincidence… or is it something else my mind can’t wrap around?
