Although you could interpret your dreams literally, a much more likely interpretation is a symbolic one. In this respect, dreams about nuclear war, the earth exploding, stars and planets falling from the sky, or the superpowers declaring war on each other would be a symbol for the ‘end of the world’ as you know it—in other words, some kind of personal upheaval that would completely change your life. Amongst such events, one should consider: the divorce of your parents, having to move house, ending your time at one school and going to another, having your best friend move and so on. Whatever has changed in your life has rocked your sense of things and your peace of mind on a global level. Therefore, rest assured, the dream is probably not about the end of the world, but is instead about a big change in your world. Whatever and however your life has been up until now, it has changed and it will never be the same again; the positive message that you take from such a dream is that you will emerge from this destruction into a fresh, new phase.
Feeling dramatically out of control in your personal life can trigger apocalypse dreams. These may be caused by hormones in adolescence, the menopause or andropause, the death of a loved one (especially a parent), or divorce and other significant relationship losses. The dream visions of the world ending are an escape mechanism to avoid dealing with a world so dramatically changed by new circumstances. In some cases, world-ending dreams feature the dreamer alone amongst generally unrecognized figures, reflecting the dreamer’s sense of isolation in waking life. When interpreting this type of dream, you should ask yourself, ‘How is the world ending and who is to blame?’ This dream may be calling for you to protect yourself against a risk that takes you well outside your comfort zone, to become more involved in a particular cause, or to think again about the rationale of your fears.
If you are religious in waking life, you may have a dream in which significant icons of your faith initiate, or withstand, the massive destruction. Another scenario is that adherents to your religious or belief system are identified in a particular way and thereby survive the destruction. In these dreams, the world is often reordered. Often, these dreams will accompany a time in the dreamer’s life when they feel that the entire world is against them, and it is only their association with something larger than themselves that can provide a resolution to the struggles being faced....
