Rainbow Dream Meanings and Interpretations


Rainbow Dream Symbol – A rainbow is a combination of the two symbols of light and water. As such, it represents a synthesis of the understanding and the subconscious. You are about to have an insight into a deep truth about yourself. This may take the form of a revelation about a deep-seated fear that has been causing you to sabotage yourself, or a past trauma, or a root of depression.

It will almost certainly be an understanding about something negative, which will allow you to break out of a harmful cycle or pattern. You must be prepared to confront some negative and possibly frightening emotions, but hold out hope that it will end with you overcoming this negativity and becoming a better and happier person.

  1. I had a dream of about 6/7 crooked rainbows. They looked like the clouds the jets make in the air but crooked and only 1was straight and the rest were crooked and fading and I was only able to see parts of the rainbow. About 4 of them were on one side of the sky and when I turned around I saw another 2/3 partial crooked rainbows. What does this mean?

    I had a dream that my hair was coloured all the colours of the rainbow, or the world. There was a pinky red, light blue, yellow, bright pink, light purple, turquoise, and more. I loved it and so did everyone else. I thought it really suited me. Then i lied down with my daughter in bed.

  6. I had a dream that I was sitting in the beck of a vehicle, with my ex-boyfriend… I was in the middle of talking to him and he seemed dark and dull- I looked over to my left and seen a BOLD, VIBRANT rainbow. I couldn’t help but stare at it. As he kept talking to me I wasn’t even focused on what he was saying because I was so drawn to the colonies in the rainbow.
