Reading Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Reading Dream Symbol – Reading is a dream symbol of understanding, communication, entertainment and, in some cases, escape. If you dream that you are reading a nonfiction or reference book, this indicates a desire to understand the facts of some situation, and possibly frustration that the matter is not already clear to you.

If you dream that you are reading a letter or other form of personal communication, this indicates your feelings about your relationship with that person, especially the effectiveness of your communication with them. On the other hand, if you dream that you are reading a fiction book, this often indicates an urge to escape from the current circumstances of your life. Alternatively, it may signify a creative brainwave.

Other dream symbols that indicate the significance of your dream about reading include your eyesight and the quality of light when you read. If you dream that the light is bright and you have no trouble seeing, this indicates a high level of understanding and/or good communication.

If, on the other hand, you dream of reading in dim light or with poor eyesight, this indicates a breakdown in personal communication, a darkening of your understanding, or even a difficult time with creativity and some form of “writer’s block.”

When you dream about reading you need to recognize the type of book and content it contains. If the book title is clear in your dream, this can indicate this is something you need to pay attention to in your real life. You may be ignoring something that is trying to get your attention. Seeing yourself reading can mean you need more personal time alone to pursue new interests.

Someone else reading can mean that person needs some space from you. Or, you may feel this person does not really understand the real you or what you want out of life. Seeing yourself struggling to read something in a foreign language is a sign there are things in your life that confuse you. You may need to look deeper to get a better understanding so you can move your life forward.
