The meaning of Desertion in dream | Dream interpretation
(see Banishment, Desert, Island, Separation)
Recent emotional traumas like divorce or the death of a loved one. In this case, the dream expresses repressed sadness and fear.
Childhood fears. Latchkey children who came home to an empty house, for example, sometimes have residual apprehension about finding themselves alone.
A sense of loneliness or emptiness. Feeling lost in a sea of humanity, or neglecting to care for yourself properly due to poor self-images.
A portion of self that you’ve outcast or rejected for boon or bane.
For example, it’s not healthy to push your emotions aside regularly, whereas rejecting prejudicial outlooks is a positive thing.
A dream of opposite.
If you dreamed of deserting someone or something, you can expect to lose a friend through foolish gossip, but if, in your dream, you were deserted, you can count on true friends who will rally to your cause whenever needed.
Depth Psychology: Dreaming about “changing sides” (becoming a deserter) is a warning: don’t sacrifice your convictions because you are fearful and concerned about rejection. Remain true to yourself!
