The meaning of Earthquake in dream | Dream interpretation
To be shaken by an earthquake denotes that you will have some serious business challenges.
If you manage to get to safety then you will overcome these problems and keep your business up to par. Should you be injured or trapped it foretells complete loss of all your business and assets.
Dreams about earthquakes, in which the ground cracks open beneath your feet and your surroundings crash around you, can be seen as attempts to prepare you for big changes in your waking life. This is because earth symbolically represents the stability and security of your personality, and dream earthquakes signal that your emotional foundation is being—or is about to be—shaken to the core, bringing the structure of your waking world crashing down around you.
Try to make a connection between your dream and your waking life. Are there signs that you might lose your job or that your relationship is in trouble? Such events would shake the foundations of your life, but remember that when the rubble has been cleared away, reconstruction can begin. You may find that rebuilding your life makes you a stronger person because you can build on the ruins of your past by learning from your mistakes.
Depending on magnitude of earthquake, a sudden big or little change in daily life. See Disaster.
This is a rare dream and its meaning varies greatly. For those who live in an earthquake area, it merely indicates some minor difficulties to be overcome.

The earthquake is part of a general sense of total catastrophe: it is a sudden mutation that can cause havoc, but it can also—in the symbolical plane —be beneficial. Given that an earthquake represents a strong disequilibrium in vital circumstances (it generates insecurity and fear), dreaming of this phenomenon should animate you to make a radical turn in your projects. In the same manner, the latent possibility of the earthquake could be something that is from your consciousness and which brings you fear. It surely deals with those repressed feelings in real life and have relegated to a subconscious level. Lastly, this image could also warn you that you are putting your health in danger, so you should try to relax yourself. (See ABYSS, CATASTROPHE, and RESCUE)

First, a great change has already taken place. Second, the onset of the change originated in a deep and unconscious place. Third, things will never be the same.
