Voodoo Dream Meanings and Interpretations


Voodoo Dream Symbol – Voodoo is a dark dream symbol of danger, manipulation, and control. If you dream of doing voodoo on someone else, this indicates that you want to control them and are willing to harm them to accomplish what you want. You should do some deep introspection in light of this dream symbol, because this is not a healthy way to have relationships.

If you dream of someone else doing voodoo on you, it means the same thing: they want to control you and are willing to harm you, or you fear that it is so. This is likely a toxic relationship and you should protect yourself from it.

  1. Last night I had a dream of a guy I´m assuming my current partner doing Voodoo on me forcing me to stay with him. I was so terrified of him I believe that I’ve tried to leave the relationship multiple times, that’s why it got to the point where he trapped me in a room not being able to leave and doing Voodoo on me.

  2. I just woke from a terrifying dream. I was at work and a woman brought in this adorable lawn ornament she had picked up from a local farm. It was a three eyed rabbit. I immediately became obsessed with getting one and asked her where it was from, ignoring my job. Her daughter eventually chimes in and tells me that this woman was given the rabbit by the owners, its not something for sale. Her mom also became obsessed with it when she saw it at the farm and while in possession of it claimed that it had mystical powers. She pointed to a voodoo sigil that was situated in front of a church across the street with many crudely shaped wax and wood dolls and candles burning. I told her I believed that was true as I also believe in spirits and dark energy. I had never seen this so I walked by it and attempted to pay my respects but one of the Sofia ornaments turned its head to look at me and I took it as a warning to stay away. However, soon after, the 3 eyes rabbit showed up again in a more menacing way and I found myself being choked and lifted off the ground and being dragged towards the sigil. There were many people around me and no one seemed to notice.
    Apparently I had begun screaming because my partner woke me up and I’m now feeling too uneasy to sleep

  3. Had a dream of being chased in my house by a man with a sewing needle, you the one w/ the one with the pearl at the end? As I neared the exit to the patio door he got closer and all I could hear myself say was that I’d be a good girl. Then I woke up.

  4. I had a dream lastnight that I was in a random apartment with strangers and they were all partying. I stayed there for a little while hanging out because I was in a place that I had never been but after a while I felt uncomfortable and decided to leave. So I went down stairs to leave walked through a door and somehow ended up right back in the apartment so I set down on the couch with some man and his son staring at me. So I attempted to leave again this time being outside in a strange apartment complex trying to find the way to a main road, or anything that looked familiar. So as I’m walking thru this apartment complex there’s a bunch of African American guys that seem to be singleing me out for whatever reason. So one of the guys comes up to me talking about weed, & lites a cigarillo trying to peer pressure me into smoking. I eventually hit it once thinking that it will grant me passage past these people. Then I tell them I’m on probation and I don’t want anymore. So as I go to walk off there’s a fire going in the middle of these people that are circleing me. They all start turning into ancient voodoo people wearing haystack outfits. Finally the last man that got me to smoke turns into a haystack wearing voodoo priest that seems to have more power than the rest and they are all chanting something about me flying away. I try to stay grounded praying to myself and saying to myself wifey yourself down so the first attempt of me to fly away failed. So then the chanting intensified and the chanting continued and I’m taken in a whirlwind and fly away. When I awoke I woke up to what seemed to be a giant spider in the corner of the room walking in place for the most part just crawling in the corner of the room however it seemed to be a shadow just moving back and forth with the distinct tone of a shadow so I got up and turned on the lights. Anyone have any idea of what this means?

  5. I had a dream about my ex & I kissing , while his new gf was there in the house, & then later on in this wired house I was locked up with a few couple other individuals & it was voodoo placed somewhere in the house . & spirts where tryna to break in & we where tryn to breakout, then the animals started to die around us …. & a whole started to form in the floor & then the man finally found the voodoo rag & threw it over the gate … I ran back in The house & threw the front to get in there car & leave , but when I tried to something was pinching my back & butt & stuff , I mean my ex is getting out of jail in a few weeks could this mean he will be after me ?

    • The dream I had last night had me so shook because I too had a voodoo doll dream with animals dying. I wonder if that’s a common vision because it’s well known animal sacrifices are made in voodoo.

      It must be weighing on your mind that your ex is getting out of jail. Maybe the interpretation is fear that he’ll make unwanted contact? Was he violent or made you feel uncomfortable in any way? Our subconscious plays serious mind games.

    • Hey girl. Came on this site so interpret a dream and read your comment. Did you have your baby? Are the dreams still lingering? Maybe your father’s spirit is having a hard time crossing over. As a Christian myself I believe if someone has passed, their spirit will stay present untill loved ones have accepted all things in death. Maybe he’s sticking around untill you have the baby. That push in faith shouldn’t be ignored! Even if you don’t go to church or are religious…there is always a pastor or priest that will hear your words. Good luck!

  7. In my dream i saw that me and my two friends, we went to shop that actually sold voodoo items but no customers knew about it and we went to the shop and the shopkeeper gave me a bracelet for free and all of a sudden police comes in to arrest them for selling suck items i could give the bracelet back but i didnt and i just ran away from the shop with my friends with the bracelet in my left hand as soon as i walked out of the shop’s door i felt a severe pain to my head…well idk what the hell does this dream mean

  8. In my dream, someone stole my car while I was in class (I go to school at night. Also, in real life, my car is white but in the dream, my car was black). I searched and searched for my car. Once I found it, I didn’t notice the first very small voodoo doll. I got the car home and put it in the garage and later found another very small voodoo doll in the car. In my dream, I also felt that the people that were coming to my home were trying to rob me. I did all I could to protect myself, my children, and my home.

  9. Hi my name is Roxanne an i had a dream that my mother-in-law had told my sisters daughter that she was doing voodoo to us what does it mean

  10. I had a dream that I was threatened by a family member that has been trying to change my reality since I was a child. They threatened to take my “doll” which in my mind was a doll version of myself. They also said that if I don’t comply they would take my art which was displayed on a wall along with the doll in my dream. They chased me and I went onto the roof to get away. They got scared once I got on the roof and my partner came to be by my side to protect me. This family member is very disturbed in real life and has killed animals and even their first born. I am making strong attempt to stay away from them but due to present circumstances in waking life they’re still in my periphery until I can change my living situation.

    I just want them to suffer. Want them to wreath what they sew… Want them to feel that feeling when everybody hates them. They the reason of her sons death so why not???

  12. I had a dream that A guy that’s interested in me asked me out to to eat so we went out to some southern restaurant where my best female friend happened to be. At his particular restaurant you can swim in the little lake behind it so we swam and played with baby sea animals but at the end a seal tried to swim away and we had to catch it so I was instructed to just go under water and open my eyes and look about 6 feet down and I should be able to see it grab it and bring it back to the surface . I was very scared as this fun summer lake swim turned into a dark Louisiana lagoon with moss hanging and. Dark water…. I put my face in and I saw something swimming up to me and as I tried to make out what it was I extended my arms to receive it but I heard everyone above the surface of the water in joy so I rushed to the surface and the had already retrieved the baby seal and was taking it out the water back to its indoor habitat. So I wonder what was down there coming to me and as I was about to look down again it was coming full speed so like magic I appeared at the ladder climbing out over looking the black lagoon heart racing I ran inside where I was given an extra pair of work coverall the restaurant employees wore to deep fry in. My best friend order a fresh porcupine to deep fry. Fast forward to us eating Indian style on the floor in a carpeted room I feel asleep. When I awoke I felt a sharp pain in my mouth so I ran to the bathroom and there was a needle and black thread sewn into my tongue with the needle sticking half way through my tongue poking the roof of my mouth. I rushed and began to remove the needle then walked out the bathroom to find my friends and ask them for some scissors to cut the thread they looked as if it were no big deal and to hurry up so I didn’t miss the show happening down stairs. So I rush to the bathroom to cut the thread from my tongue and I made it to the basement where I saw a lot of familiar faces waiting as this radio talk show set up to interview my friend for his new mixtape he had just released. Everyone laughed and joked as they began they opened up with him rapping over the beat one of his favorite tracks and it was all just too much so I began up the stairs and tripped and made a loud noise and everyone stopped in dead silence and looked at me and I said “I’m sorry did that interrupt the recording?” “Yes just go” a man said to me so I rushed up the stars just in time to see my mother leaving the house in a rush and it didn’t seem right so I hopped in the car to following her and we ended up in this dark road in the middle of a snow storm as the snow fell hard and fast it was so dark and hard to see but she wasn’t slowing down as we approached the end of a street with a river bed ahead. I saw she wasn’t stopping so like magic as she plunged in the water I transported through my car reached for her and pulled her right after hitting the water and I dragged her back to the side of the road and laid with her as the storm cleared the bright moon was out and stars filled the night sky. I held her as she wept asking me why did I save her. I too began to cry asking her why would she want to leave me. Then she began to talk talk about her early child hood and how her mother was a good mother in the beginning but then got lost then she held me and cried out ” I’m just tired, I’ve always been tired. Even when it’s light out it always seem so dark. I just don’t want to live anymore”. So I began to explain to her that I often feel the same and that I’m not giving up on myself and I won’t give up on her just when I went to hold her tighter to my right I saw bright lights it was a semi truck rushing toward us as we’re laying on the side of the road so with a swiftness I scooped her up and sat up and just then the scene had change and police and friends and family surrounded us and they searched the water for her car and friends asking what happened. The scene then changes to me waking up on a bed of white linen and looking a record player playing a voodoo chant I read the name clearly although I don’t remember the name. I got out the bed creaking along the would flooring of the old house I made it out side the the drums plays and people chanting and dancing with an elderly dark skinned woman looking at me holding a hand crafted artifact with woven material and feathers attached to it.” You’ve made it this is home” the. I could understand no other words being spoken as the chanting got louder and I began to spin in a circle seeing all the dancing people with white paint on their brown skin ,feeling the drums beating through my soul I faded as if I passed out. Then I awoke from my dream.

  18. Thru out the night I was twisting and turning and had difficulty sleeping. But three times I woke up to dreams of someone performing voodoo on me. In one of those dream I could see a demonic type of animal. What does this all mean? This all happened on the same night.

  19. Chitaria Dunn on

    I had a dream about a voodoo master. Perse that came to my school and was holding a class on voodoo and I was too afraid to go in because of the way the room was decorated. It had things that POPPED out at you, and i told him that I was afraid and he walked away disappointed. The room had a pop-up alligator, white ghost, and various other things and it was dark and had candles lit everywhere. This scared me because it reminded me of a haunted house. At the end of class i along with various other students had stayed behind. When the class came back out, some of them were altered like physically. One had abnormally long hair, and my other friend had dropped 100 or so pounds. And I went up to the voodoo master and he was telling me how he was disappointed and was talking to me about my “planet” and the power I am capable of. I told him that I had wAnted to learn voodoo. But he disappeared and I tried to find him and my mother told me that if was truly meant to be my teacher that I would see him again in the future. I just remember the way his eyes lit up really big and they were sort of sparkling,when he was telling me about how powerful could be. What does this dream symbolize?
