Outer Space Dream Symbol


Outer Space – Outer space is a dream symbol of the ultimate adventure. In our dreams, space really is “the final frontier,” being a place that the vast majority of us have never and will never physically visit, but which looms large in our consciousness as adventurous and open for exploration. In our dreams, outer space also indicates our feelings about our own empowerment and ability to achieve our goals.

If you dream that you are trying to take a trip into outer space and are not able to go, this is an indication that you feel your goals are unattainable or that you do not have the tools you need to be able to achieve them. On the other hand, if you dream about actually going into outer space, this is a powerful and positive dream sign that something you previously thought was impossible, or that others think is impossible, is within your grasp and that you are empowered to do it.

Additional Space Dream Interpretations

Dreaming of space around you or a building can indicate your own need for personal space. You may need space to achieve your goals without having anything or anyone else cramp your style. Dreaming of outer space symbolizes your search for deeper meanings in your life. This could be a sign you need to join a group of like minded people to help you grow.

Space in a dream can also represent the thinking of mainstream society. When you dream of space this can mean you need to overcome any feelings of being trapped by the collective mentality. You need to work through these feelings to achieve what you need to for success. It is also a sign you are not tapping into your full potential. What holds you back? You already hold the answers deep inside yourself. How are you going to change this? You are the only one holding you back.

Feeling a need of space can also mean someone is pushing your boundaries. You may need to set them firmly in place so you no longer feel violated. Being alone in foreign space is a sign you fear being alone. Have you lost hope for your future?

  1. In my dream about space, I was standing over the Earth. Planets were the size of a baseball that fitted in my hands. I was so huge that if I took a step I will be at the next planet but I didn’t cause when I realized how big I was i started to think about what I was standing on. When I remember that I was in space I realized that there isn’t a floor and so I got scared and I think I started to fall so I forced myself to wake up

  2. I had a dream that i was flying out of the roof of my house into out space to the stars. But somehow my body is still in the house just hanging on the ceiling. then i came back tried to do it again then it was difficult then after a bit more try i was able to fly out again and just travel through the star and planets. It was pretty delightful.

    I had a dream that I didn’t remember until I got in the shower after waking up. Anyway, the dream was really short and weird. I dreamt that I was floating in space, everything was pitch black around me, except the lights that were coming from earth, I was floating on top of it and it looked so pretty, it was huge and all the lights from earth looked like looking at the lights of a city at night. Then I head someone speak to me but there was no one around me, but I felt someone next to me, I didn’t feel scared, I was just in awe, surprised about everything. I remember exactly what this voice told me, it said “people like you can see a different connection with God” then said “look down there and let me show you” I looked down to the world and saw this white fluorescent light shooting out from earth up into space, slowly but steady, it was like a tube of light, and then the voice said “that is a person down there connecting with God at this very moment”. I was mesmerized by that light, it was all so unreal, then the voice proceeded to say :I’m going to show you a secret of the universe” then these 2 huge 3D triangles appeared in front of earth, the triangles were both transparent, and one was right next to the other. I can’t remember what the voice said, it sounded super technical, what I mean is that I remember being confused by everything I heard about the triangles, all I remember was the word hemispheres for some reason, but everything else I heard is a blur, it sounded like math and measurements and stuff like that. When the voice was explaining everything, the walls of the triangles started opening to the sides and then I can’t remember anything else after that. I always have the weirdest dreams, and I wonder if my brain is not functioning right, I don’t do drugs, I don’t drink, all I do is go to school, work as a receptionist and I am not sure what the hell. This dream wasn’t bad, I actually liked it, but there have been times when I have dreamt pretty weird stuff that leave me a little scared and messed up for a little. Hope someone could help me interpret some of my dreams one day. Hope you all have an awesome day today 🙂

  4. The unknown on

    i had a dream i was in space, i had a task to save people from the despair, it is not a person, it is an organisation. But everything in my dream was a one hit kill,my first mission was saving the survivors at tre axiom,it was a family of four,and when i landed there it was like a game in a game in a game. Once the test was over i heard this measssage “warning ship systems damaged please evacuate the ship immediantly once i looked outside the coviniently placed window i saw a hole.A big hole and i knew the ship is gonna explode i ran to my ship as i was running i saw the family running to their ship aswell,and they followed me to my ship.as i flew with the family,we returned to my mothership. and after that another mission to go to a planet to look for survivors who were spying on the despair,well thats all i got for now

  5. Had this crazy dream where I was In a shuttle in space watching over earth. Then next thing I knew I was shot out of the shuttle with this other astronaut. We grabbed on to each other suits and spun around until we landed in this dark hole-like place. If I remember correcting it was located kind of below earth. We were sent there to explore this newly discovered black -hole thing. When we finally got there we both slowly went down. I couldn’t see a single thing below me unless I went down farther, which I did and I kept seeing this whitish color that looked almost like one of those twisted noodle pasta Lmao . I was very scared but I had faith cause the dude I was with kept encouraging me to go down. Once I went down probably like 100 feet I woke up.

  6. I had a dream where i was in space with my ancestor thats from another world & he picked me up as the Earth was burning. He Brought me back to where my race if from. Blonde Blue eyes

  7. I had a dream while I was sleeping at my boyfriend’s house that I was trapped in space. I didn’t want to be there and felt really scared but I couldn’t escape. I woke up feeling really panicked and every-time I shut my eyes, even a blink, space was all I could see. I cant tell whether I was actually awake or whether this was all part of the dream. I felt like the only way to get rid of the feeling was to move as far away from my boyfriend in the bed as I could, almost as if it was him controlling the dream??? It is a fairly new relationship and I wondered if the dream could have any meaning behind it? It was very weird and I have never had anything like this before. Probably the most panicked a dream has ever made me feel. However, I then woke up the next morning after having a very happy, normal dream about being in Amsterdam with my boyfriend and our friends.
