The meaning of Moat in dream | Dream interpretation

Emotional block, defense against others.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

1- A moat is a representation of our defences against intimacy. In dreams we can see for ourselves how we build or dig those enclosures. We can also decide what steps we need to take to remove them.

2- When we need to contain our own emotions we will often create a way of monitoring to whom we need to relate.

A moat can be a symbol for this ability.

3- A moat can be an emotional barrier or defence.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

To reach one’s goal is not going to be easy.

If you dream of any of these, it suggests a defensive attitude. Do you have a real fear of being overwhelmed or defeated by a group of schoolmates or colleagues?

Or are you feeling so vulnerable that you are putting up emotional defenses to protect yourself? The symbol of the castle is that of a place where you can defend yourself from attack, so it may represent the methods you use to protect yourself from ‘attack’. On the other hand, your dream may highlight your self- imposed isolation from others, and the sense of security you get from being self- reliant.

If your stronghold came under siege, did you identify the faces of your attackers? Are these people you know in waking life? And did your dream defenses hold firm? If they did, this suggests that you are successfully fending off attempts to wound or get through to your emotions.

If you are a man who dreamed that you are laying siege to a castle, the Freudian interpretation is that it expresses your desire to have sex with a woman who has resisted your advances. The castle is also a place of historical interest, so it may suggest a need to look to the past for inspiration. It can also represent a mandala, a symmetrical pattern that symbolizes the psyche.

If a courtyard or moat appears in the dream, this again refers to protection or the desire to feel safe and secure. The shape of the moat or courtyard will also be relevant.... The Element Encyclopedia
