Moon in dream meaning | Dream interpretation
(1) From prehistoric times the moon has been regarded as the source of all fertility. It governs ocean tides and rainfall, menstruation and birth. (Even when seen as male, the moon has been associated with fertility: for example, in Australian aboriginal tradition, the moon makes women pregnant.) It may therefore symbolize (the possibility of) personal growth.
Love; romance; intuitions arising from the unconscious; one’s inner world of fantasy, imagination, the psychic. Because of its connection with the tides, the deep inner movements caused by the subtle side of our nature, the tides of feeling, even madness; the pull and attraction of mysterious dark desires; a woman’s strange, sensual, overpowering attraction. New or old moon: female sexuality, change; intuition. Moon’s changes: life, death, rebirth; the tides in our affairs. Full moon: power of the inner drives. Flying to moon: trying to escape reality or responsibility, attempting to break free of limitations. Moonlight: romantic view of the world; not seeing things too clearly; looking within self.
In the twilight sky the moon represents the lunar or feminine. Unveiled as feminine expression, it represents intuition, vision, and mystical knowledge. As a symbol of fertility, the moon’s four phases express the cycles of the creative process.
The waxing moon signifies planting new seeds for new beginnings.
The full moon represents the harvest obtained from your ideas and actions, and the waning moon the ending of the fertile cycle or old age and wisdom.

The moon is an interesting symbol that connotes feminine energy; it is associated with the irrational and the intuitive.
The moon effects the ocean tides, and it has been linked to madness or lunacy. As a dream symbol is can represent all of these things and more. As always, pay attention to the details in the dream before making conclusions.
The moon could represent romance and our earthly impulses and passions. It could reveal things about the nature of soul and the unconscious.
For those lucky people, the moon can reflect their inner peace and feelings of serenity and security.
Its symbolism is very broad and complex. In general, it represents feminine nature, but it is also related to the unconscious and human emotions. This complexity stems from the fact that its meaning depends on the lunar phase. When you dream of the new moon, it indicates that a new love is awakening in you; if the moon is waxing, is an ardent love; if it is full moon, culminated love; waning, the passion burns out. And if the moon is surrounded by a halo, the dream may portend pain and problems of all kinds, whose severity are greater if you see an eclipse. (See WHITE and ECLIPSE) According to palmistry, the lunar region of the hand (opposite the thumb) is the area where the travel lines are.
Dreaming of a moon, therefore, portends that you will soon leave for somewhere, probably by water.
A new moon seen in a dream foretells commercial success and pleasant friends.
The meaning of a moon depends on the de- tails, but is, in the main, favorable. As with the superstition, to dream of seeing a new moon over your left shoulder predicts a lucky month ahead. A bright, waxing moon in a clear sky forecasts a new and exciting project (or change); but if it was covered or dimmed by drifting clouds, you will have to overcome some obstacles before reaping a well-earned reward. A full moon means unusual suc- cess in love matters, and a harvest moon signifies unusually good returns on your investments of either energy or money. Very bright moonlight is a prophecy of family unity and/or domestic happi- ness. All moon omens are intensified if they were seen reflected in water. To dream of moon travel or of the man or lady in the moon is a warning that you could lose the hap- piness close at hand by being too preoccupied with distant mirages.
Depending upon dream, security, inner peace, romance, love, quietude; creativity, inspiration. Also, emotional influence, as the moon affects the tides.
If you are not centered, a full moon may increase feelings of confusion.
The moon symbolizes the mysteries and creativity of the feminine, and in dreamlore it represents the emotional aspect of the self. Its constant changing shape and wandering across the sky establishes the moon as a symbol of the cyclical nature of life. Because of its connection to the tides, the moon also indicates the tides of feeling or mysterious dark desires that are overpowering you. The full moon is a symbol of hope when times are difficult; a waxing crescent moon may symbolize gestation or new ideas; a waning crescent moon, ambivalence or a life force that is weakening; the black or invisible moon, death; and the new moon, rebirth. A dream journey to the moon could suggest a search for inner wisdom or a longing to experience the flowering of your imagination or, if you are a female, a desire to conceive a baby.
If you failed to reach the moon, could the message have been that you are attempting the impossible?
A brilliant moon prognosticates: to a wife, love and good health; to a husband, increase in wealth. New moon: advancement in business; waning, death of a great man; a halo around the moon denotes pardon and deliverance through a female; a red moon, voyages, pilgrimages; dull moon, death or illness to wife, sister or female relative; perilous journey- ings, especially by sea, brain fever, eye trouble.
An obscure moon becoming bright, profit to a woman, joy to a man. From clearness to obscurity, loss, sadness, misfortune to men and women. Two moons denote increase in rank and dignity; when a beautiful woman dreams of the moon, the dream forecasts high standing, dignity and admiration.
To thieves, murderers, etc., it denotes justice; to invalids danger of death or shipwreck.
