Roses Dream Symbol


Roses Dream Symbol – Interpreting roses blooming in your dreams is a matter of interpreting the dream as a whole. Your feelings around the roses in your dreams also help you understand the meaning. If you feel a longing for someone lost to you, this reflects your feelings in real life. It usually represents feelings in the immediate past or in your present. Sweet smelling roses bring messages of love and happiness to your life.

Dreaming of roses brings feelings of romance, love, passion, and friendship. It can also represent fertility, loyalty, and respect. Roses symbolize how you feel about the things that happen in your life. How you feel about the situations and people who affect you.

White roses can mean a perfect love and purity. This may be because you are shy about declaring your feelings for someone. You may feel unsure about something though you feel this love to be true. Dying or dead white roses indicate death or health problems. Seeing white roses on a casket can mean there are new beginnings and you leave behind the old, negativity you no longer need.

Dreaming of yellow roses symbolizes deep, meaningful friendships. It can also mean you can see others are falling in love. You may even be aware of an admirer around you. It can also mean you want to be closer to someone. But, they may not even notice you around. A wilting yellow rose may indicate it is a time to spend more time with your friends. Pink roses reflect sexual passion or there is someone constantly on your mind you desire. They can also be a warning to not become controlling or obsessed over the person you love.

Withered roses can mean a true love is lost to you. It may be a relationship has ended. Or, may end soon. It can even mean that you love someone more than they love you. Thorny roses represent the issues and challenges in your reality. They may represent tough love where you need to do something for the sake of someone else. Thorns can also indicate there is danger in being in love with this person in your reality.

Roses symbolize love. Dreaming of being given roses is a symbol of the love and passion that the giver has for you, just like being given roses in real life. Of course, in a dream, it can also alternatively symbolize the love that you wish that person had for you, or the love you believe that person has for you.

Many times, our subconscious or unconscious minds give us insights into our relationships that we do not realize in our waking consciousness. So while you should not simply assume that your dream about roses guarantees that another person feels romantically toward you, you should definitely consider the message this dream is telling you about the relationship.

  1. Hi my dream is I fall into a rose bush and fall asleep as I sleep in being swallowed up by the thorny part of the roses. This is driving me can’t find the meaning.

  2. My dream was of bunches of roses. All kinds and colors. Beautiful. I searched my house for cases to put them into but didn’t finish putting them in water. I had to leave to work and I came back and a female friend had given them all away to a guy I liked so that they could be useful. She didn’t want the roses to go to waste. At first I told her it was fine. But it wasn’t. I was left with rose heads that someone had cut off the bouquets and I started crying and fought with her. Finally telling her they weren’t hers to give away. Our friendship was ruined. I couldn’t forgive her for giving away my roses without asking me.

  3. What does it mean if you are given a red rose in a dream and the petals fall off? It could have been because for some reason, I woke to roses under my pillow – and that was a bit rough on them, but the roses made me feel very happy and loved. I’d still like to know the symbolism behind the falling petals though, if someone could reply 🙂

  4. Hello. I dreamt I found a greetings card from a colleague. I opened it and there was a yellow rose inside. I took it out and the petals collapsed into dust slowly. Some tiny white flowers appeared out of it.
    My cat was walking across the room and I realised I’d neglected her so I stroked her. (She died 4 years ago)..
