Hourglass Dream Symbol


Hourglass – An hourglass is a dream symbol of the passage of time. As we get older, it becomes more and more real to us how time is passing, and how precious each moment is. Dreaming of watching sand flow through an hourglass is a symbol reminding you that time is passing you by, and you need to make the most of each day.

Dreaming of an hourglass breaking is an ominous portent of catastrophe or unexpected death. This dream should prompt you to resolve your differences with your loved ones and take advantage of the time you have, because you never know when time will be out for either you or them.
