The meaning of Moth in dream | Dream interpretation
The polar opposite in dreams to the butterfly, the moth symbolizes those dark and uncontrollable urges from the unconscious that plague our efforts at transformation and self-awareness in real life. The moth is largely associated with night-time and therefore indicates the hidden or darker aspects of your personality. To see a moth in your dream indicates that unseen damage will not become apparent until it is too late. Such a dream is telling you that it is important to pay attention to minor details and not overlook things or others.
Alternatively, the moth may symbolize your weaknesses, character flaws or a dangerous attraction to someone who is not good for you, as the image of a moth flying too close to the flame indicates. Moths flying out of clothes in your dream may indicate old arguments and hurts that need to be addressed. Pay attention to the item of clothing that the moths attack; a coat, for example, might symbolize protection. More positively, however, to dream of a moth emerging from darkness signifies growing self-awareness in real life.
Moth holes in clothing or blankets portend family sadness or disappointment; a dream of trying to catch moths is a sign of trouble from hidden hostility or jealousy, but if you suc- ceeded in catching and de- stroying them, you will outwit your enemies.
A moth is not very attractive, desirable, or known for many positive attributes. There is the story of a moth being attracted to the flame, which got to close to the flame and was destroyed.
The moth in your dream may be pointing out a personal weakness or may be bringing to light a deception in your life. It could be suggesting that you are being lead to a place where you will be hurt unless you recognize the danger. Since dreams are very rarely literal, the danger could be emotional or psychological, not necessarily physical.
To see a moth in a dream, small worries will lash you into hurried contracts, which will prove unsatisfactory. Quarrels of a domestic nature are prognosticated.
Dreams of a moth represent that you have been hopelessly drawn to passionate flings and/or dangerous situations like a moth to a flame being burned by your compulsive desires. You are looking for light, love and inspiration.
Moths in dreams symbolize minor irritations and damage that remains unseen until it is too late.
Subversive emotions and feelings. See Light.
Vision: A man dreaming about a moth flying about: be more carefid in your choice of female friendships. Wearing moth- eaten garments: your present situation is precarious. Only- determination will bring about positive changes. See Clothes.
Depth Psychology: See Insects, Vermin.
Moths live in darkness but are attracted by light. An answer to a condition or a problem that the dreamer has been “kept in the dark” about may be revealed and “brought into the light.”
The moth symbolizes the self, but perhaps in its darker, more worldly sense. As the butterfly symbolizes the soul, so the moth symbolizes spirit trapped in the physical realms.
Psychological / emotional perspective: The moth symbolizes the darker side of us that uses fantasy.
The moth emerging from darkness signifies our need to recognize this shadowy self so that we can survive difficulties unscathed.
Material aspects: The moth is largely associated with nighttime and therefore connects with the hidden side of our nature. Also, because the moth can be self-destructive when there is light around, it may highlight personal weakness. It also tends to symbolize our dream self and the more transient side of our personality – that part that finds difficulty in settling to proper tasks.
The moth has the same meaning as the butterfly, but it relates to the shadow side of the equation, as it is a nocturnal creature.
A symbol of transient wealth or something that is consuming your valuables, Ps. 39:11
Since they are attracted to the light, moths come as messengers of personal transformation, summoning you to blossom closer to spintual light. They may represent the transformation of the soul.
The self we assume in our dreams or fantasy, the unconscious urge our being has to survive personal death.
