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 Being in a cave alone for a long time can mean you have withdrawn from the world in your real life.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. My dream included many caves that were tiny or big and there were many other people and I think there was a man who wanted to attack everyone basically you had to be smart and find out ways to get of the cave before he funded you I guess before we went to the cave my mom was driving around and I told her to not go to the caves and she went which I FITB scared when I got there

  2. My cave dream was not a happy place. It was about being lost and attacked. I had people with me that I was trying to protect, but a man that looked familiar kept trying to attack me. I was just driving around and around lost.
