Rainbows represent great happiness and opportunity.

Tryskelion Dream Interpretation | Pagan - Anonymous

(see Colors)

Biblical: A promise kept, as well as hope and forgiveness.

Birth, fertility, and creativity. In Africa, the rainbow snake made the world.

The veil between realities: In pre-Vedic traditions, and among the Norse people, the rainbow represents the bridge between this life and the next.

A rainbow appearing over any gathering of people represents divine blessings, unparalleled joy, success, and / or love.

The Language of Dreams | Patrica Telesco

A change in the dreamer’s present condition; a rainbow in the East denotes benefits to the poor and the sick; in the West good for the rich but not for the poor. Overhead, a change in fortune; sometimes ruin and death to the dreamer and his family. On the right it is good, at the left ill, judging right and left according to the sun, but wherever it appears it brings good to poverty and affliction by changing the air (Artemidorus). Modern oneirocritics regard the rainbow as an invariable sign of failure.

The Fabric of Dream | Katherine Taylor Craig

If a rainbow appears in your dream, this is without doubt a message of hope from your unconscious. For Jungians, the rainbow is a symbol of redemption and personal growth. The rainbow represents the enlightened mind that is a bridge between heaven and earth, and this dream image can fill you with optimism about the possibilities ahead. The rainbow is also celebrated in many religions and cultures; you may be unconsciously or consciously aware of some of its associations. For example, in Chinese, African and Norse belief, the rainbow links the earth with the divine. In ancient Greece it was said to represent Hermes, the messenger of the gods. Buddhists and Hindus regard the rainbow as a symbol of transcendence and according to Celtic religion, a pot of gold lies at its foot. The Judeo-Christian tradition tells that God placed a rainbow in the sky as a symbol of deliverance and as His covenant with humankind. So if a rainbow appears in your dream, did it suggest spiritual or material gain, reconciliation, peace or inspiration?

Or did it simply indicate that one day your dreams will come true.

The Element Encyclopedia | Theresa Cheung

Perfect balance and harmony, completion, health, wholeness. You have come through difficult lessons and done a good job. Your higher self or guidance is well pleased.

The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

Whatever the ac- tion may have been, if the main feature of your dream was a rainbow, it predicts the end of all your troubles followed by great happiness.

The Complete Guide to Interpreting Your Dreams | Stearn Robinson - Tom Corbett

To dream you see a rainbow denotes the changing of your present estate and manner of life.

To dream of seeing a rainbow in the East is a good omen to the poor and sick; for the former will recover their estates, and the latter their health.

To dream of seeing a rainbow in the West.

To the rich is a good.

To the poor a bad sign.

To dream “ you see the rainbow directly over your head, signifies a change of fortune, and most commonly the death of the dreamer and the ruin of his family. Note, also, that in your dreams the rainbow on the right hand is good, and on the left, ill; and you must judge the right or the left according to the sun. And in what quality soever it appears, it is a good sign to anyone that is afflicted with poverty or any other affliction^ for it changeth the time and the air.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

Happiness for lovers is foretold by a dream in which a rainbow figures.

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

The Complete Dream Book | Gillian Holloway

It is an image of hope and prosperity. After a period of gloom, the rainbow predicts redemption and good news. Soon you will live a time of peace and tranquility in which success will be a constant and your wishes will come true.

It is also associated with the pursuit of self-knowledge. The rainbow symbolizes a bridge between heaven and earth, that is, between your earthly self and your enlightened or superior self.

When the rainbow looks bright and colorful in your dreams, gypsies predict an advantageous change.

If the color is dull something will deteriorate.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Rainbows are colorful bridges that fall across the sky, but we can not walk across them (or use them to get to our pot of gold). Currently you may experience great joy and have extraordinary or even magical ideas, but remember that you can not walk across the rainbow bridge, so stay well-grounded. Usually a rainbow follows a rainstorm.

If so, you have weathered a difficult time that is coming to closure, this dream symbol may represent your optimism. Generally, rainbows make people smile and feel happy. Thus, some may consider this dream a sign of your good luck.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To dream of a rainbow means denotes more favorable aspects in life.

Dream Dictionary Unlimited | Margaret Hamilton

Hope, abundance, and the promise of good to come are all wrapped up in the symbol of the rainbow, one of the most magical phenomena that can be found on Earth. Part of the meaning of this symbol can be taken from the emotional reaction a person can have when looking at one. Rainbows are breathtaking and can inspire deep feelings of elation. In this way, a rainbow is almost always going to be thought of as a positive image. There are several major cultural associations to a rainbow. In the Old Testament, God sent the rainbow as a promise to never destroy humanity again, which is the origin of the theme of the promise for the future.

The Celtic tradition tells us that at the end of a rainbow is a pot of gold, associating this symbol with the search for abundance. However, both of these time-honored interpretations bring with them darker meanings that bear consideration.

The former implies past destruction and the latter is a paradox in that it is impossible to ever actually find the end of a rainbow, as it constantly shifts as you move toward it. However, each of these counterparts is what infuses the rainbow with its most powerful symbolic element: hope.

The physical construct of a rainbow is filled with beautiful symbolism. Rainbows contain all the colors of the spectrum and therefore represent a sense of wholeness in a majestic and highly spiritual expression. They appear when the sun and rain are present at the same time. To be able to experience sadness (rain) and joy (sunlight) at the same time is a true sign of consciousness and wisdom.

Complete Dictionary of Dreams | Dr. Mıchael Lennox

This is a sign of God’s covenant with all life. Rainbows also stand for faithfulness and love, Gen. 9:13

Christian Dream Symbols | Tyler Wolfe

Red rainbow: good fortune; • Black rainbow: bad luck.

Chine Dream Interpretation | Duke Zhou

With its multicolored rays refracted by the sun. the rainbow offers a bridge into the spintual dimensions. Associated with magic, it leads you to the pot of gold at its end. It often comes in a dream as a sign of spiritual fulfillment and good luck.

Ariadne's Book of Dream | Ariadne Green

A sense of better things to come; illusion; an awareness of the beauty and value of life in the midst of difficulties. Idioms: chasing a rainbow

A Guide to Dreams and Sleep Experiences | Tony Crisp

A rainbow will usually be a sign of hope, signalling the end of gloom and the re-entry of the warming sun. Since the sun may be a symbol of the self, the rainbow may symbolize bridging the gap between yourself as you are and your true self. (But for some African peoples the rainbow is a bad sign, since it means the end of a rainstorm, and drought means death.)

COLOURS

1- Colour is a vital part of symbolism. This is partly to do with the vibratory frequency which each individual colour has, and partly to do with tradition. Scientific experiments have now been carried out to ascertain what effect colour has, and have proved what occultists and healers have always known. In working with the colours of the rainbow, we discover that the warm, lively colours which give back light - are yellow, orange and red. Cold passive colours are blue, indigo and violet.

Green is a synthesis of both warmth and cold. White light holds all colour in it.

2- By working with one’s own colour spectrum, it is possible to maintain health. Some meanings given to colours are

Black This colour holds within it all colour in potential. It suggests manifestation, negativity and judgement.

Blue It is the colour of the clear blue sky. This is the prime healing colour. It suggests relaxation, sleep and peaceful ness.

Brown The colour of the earth, death and commitment. Green This is the colour of balance and harmonv.

It is the colour of nature and of plant life. Grey There is probably no true grey. It means devotion and ministration.

Magenta This is in some ways a colour which links both the physical and spiritual. It signifies relinquishment, selflessness, perfection and meditative practice. Orange This is an essentially cheerful uplifting colour.

The qualities associated are happiness and independence. Red Vigour, strength, energy, life, sexuality and power are all connected with is colour.

A beautiful clear mid-red is the correct one for these qualities; if there is any other red in dreams, the attributes may not be totally uncontaminated.

Turquoise The colour is clear greeny blue. This is supposed in some religions to be the colour of the freed soul. It means calmness and purity.

Violet This colour, while found by- some to be too strong, means nobility, respect and hope. Its purpose is to uplift. White This colour contains within it all colours. It suggests innocence, spiritual purity and wisdom.

Yellow This colour is the one which is closest to daylight. Connected with the emotional sell”, the attributes are thinking, detachment and judgement.

3- Colour affirms the existence of light. In spiritual terms, red is the colour of self-image and sexuality, orange is relationship both with self and others. Yellow is the emotional self, green is self- awareness blue is self-expression and wisdom. Indigo is the colour of creativity, while violet depicts cosmic responsibility....

LIGHT

Light has traditionally been identified with the spirit. It symbolizes knowledge, inspiration, and intuition. For this reason, if your dreams are luminous, it means you possess great self confidence. However, if they are dark, it reveals the presence of feelings of insecurity and low self-esteem. To turn on a light in darkness augurs that you will discover a secret. Finally, you must pay attention to the different forms of light, since the reading depends on it. So, the rainbow represents hope; the sun, happiness; and the moon, the guide that comes from your most hidden unconscious self. (See YELLOW, CLARITY, and LAMP)

The light you see in dreams can have a great spiritual importance. It may deal with a journey toward enlightenment, or an experience in the interior, similar to those the mystics had. In many cases, it has a religious meaning. Christ is often called “the light of the world” and, regarding the Buddha’s nirvana, they say it is “unlimited light.” Equally, the teachings of yoga describe “the light of ten thousand suns.”...

GEMSTONE

Because of the different colors in gemstones and the different things associated with them, they can all have slightly different meanings when they appear in dreams.

If a specific gemstone or precious stone appears in your dream, try to work out what that stone means to you. Was it your birth stone or the birth stone of someone you know? You should also consider its color. The texture and any associations or myths connected should also help with your interpretation. It would be impossible to list all precious and semiprecious gemstones, but the following associations with some of the most well-known gemstones should give you some guidelines regarding interpretation; but please note that it is always worth your while to do your own research.

Purple has long been considered a royal color so it is not surprising that amethyst has been so much in demand during history. Fine amethysts are featured in the British Crown Jewels and were also a favorite of Catherine the Great and Egyptian royalty. Amethyst, transparent purple quartz, is the most important quartz variety used in jewelry. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote that amethyst was able to dissipate evil thoughts and quicken the intelligence, and in dreams the appearance of amethyst suggests healing and transcendence. The gemstone is also a symbol of sobriety and remorse, due to the legend of the origin of amethyst. Dionysus, the god of intoxication, was angered one day by an insult from a mere mortal and swore revenge on the next mortal that crossed his path, creating fierce tigers to carry out his wish. Along came unsuspecting Amethyst, a beautiful young maiden on her way to pay tribute to the goddess Diana. Diana turned Amethyst into a stature of pure crystalline quartz to protect her from the brutal claws of the tigers. Dionysus wept tears of wine in remorse for his action at the sight of the beautiful statue. The god’s tears stained the quartz purple, creating the gem we know today.

Diamond is the symbol of incorruptibility, integrity, perfection and wisdom, so if you dream of it, these may be themes that would repay further investigation in your interpretation. But your dream may also be hinting that you need to look at various facets of a problem. There is also the association with human greed. As a symbol of fertility and regeneration, emerald in dreams suggests personal growth and a connection with the natural in life. The green of the emerald is the color of life and of the springtime, which comes round again and again. But emerald is also the traditional color of beauty and of constant love. In ancient Rome, green was the color of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. In dreams, emerald can convey harmony, love of Nature and elemental joie de vivre.

According to Chinese legend, jade is the sperm of the Celestial dragon that fell to earth; it therefore represents a union between heaven and earth. In the West, jade is more likely to bear the symbolism of its color green. It may also appear in dream word-play. Is there something in your waking life about which you feel jaded and would like to change? In gemstone therapy, it is said that jade stimulates creativity and mental agility on the one hand, whilst also having a balancing and harmonizing effect

A symbol of the inner world of fantasies and dreams, opal stands for intuitive awareness. All of nature’s splendor seems to be reflected in the manifold opulence of fine opals: fire and lightning, all the colors of the rainbow and the soft shine of far seas. Almost ninety-five per cent of all fine opals come from the dry and remote outback deserts of Australia. For ages, people have believed in the healing power of opals. It is reported to be able to cure depression and to help its wearer find true and lasting love. The fantastic color- play of opals may reflect changing emotions and moods; either your own or of the people around you. For example, the sparkling images of boulder opal, the vivid light flashes of black opal or the soft shine of milk opal characterize the colorful world of this fascinating gemstone.

Rubies are a symbol of emotion, passion, empathy and reaching out to others. The most important characteristic about this valuable stone is its color. There is of course a reason for this: the name ‘Ruby’ was derived from the Latin word ‘rubens’, meaning ‘red’. The red of rubies is in a class of its own, being peculiarly warm and fiery. Two magical elements are associated with the symbolism of this color: fire and blood, implying warmth and life for mankind. In the light of this, ruby-red is not just any old color red; it is the epitome of the color: hot, passionate and powerful. Like no other gemstone, ruby is the perfect symbol of powerful feelings. To dream of a ring set with a precious ruby does not symbolize a calm and moderate sympathy that one might feel for someone else, but rather the passionate and unbridled love which two people feel for each other.

Sapphires are symbols of hope, joy and aspiration, and blue is the color most often association with this precious stone. This color is also linked to emotions such as sympathy and harmony, friendship and loyalty. These emotions are permanent and reliable—they are emotions in which overwhelming and fiery passion is not the main element, but rather composure, mutual understanding and unshakeable trust. Sapphire blue has thus become a color related to anything permanent and reliable, and this is one of the reasons why women in many countries settle on sapphire for their engagement rings. Sapphire symbolizes loyalty and faithfulness, whilst at the same time expressing love and yearning.

The most famous musical example for this melancholic shade of blue can be found in George Gershwin’s ‘Rhapsody in Blue’. Sapphire’s blue color is also evoked where clear competence and controlled brainwork are the issue. After all, the first computer ever to wrangle a victory from a chess grandmaster and world champion was named ‘Deep Blue’.

In many cultures of the Old and New World turquoise has for thousands of years been appreciated as a holy stone, a good-luck charm or a talisman. In Asia and Europe, turquoise is often worn as protection against the evil eye and its exquisite shade of blue is associated with heaven. In dreams it can represent healing and higher aspirations....

IRIS

In Greek mythology, the gods let down a bridge or rainbow between earth and heaven so that the goddess Iris of the rainbow could act as a go-between to ease discord between men and gods. Dreams of irises may therefore be referring to your role as a peacemaker or the need for you to make peace with someone. In addition, the iris is often depicted as a fleur-de-lis, a symbol of France that shares the symbolism of the lily, indicating purity, peace and resurrection. The tall stem and swordlike leaves of the iris add male sexuality to the female bloom; as a result, the Iris is often associated with the animus or masculine aspect of femininity. The common yellow iris is often called the flag iris.

If you dream of a yellow iris, it may mean that you want to call attention to, or flag, something about which you are concerned. On the other hand, does your dream iris refer to the iris in your eye? Are you seeing clearly what is going on around you?... The Element Encyclopedia

LANDSCAPES AND SETTINGS

When the setting of your dream is particularly prominent in your dream, it is usually trying to convey to you some kind of message from your unconscious. The setting of a dream is the environment or landscape in which the action takes place. Sometimes the place reflects your mood but it can also be a reminder of a particular time in your life or of particular people. In general, the setting signifies the environment in which the main action of your life is happening. For example, if you dream of walking across the road in a busy city in the rain, your dream has a completely different setting to going for a walk in a park on a sunny day.

Try to assign a feeling and function to the setting of your dreamscape; that busy city might convey the feeling of purpose and speed, together with the function of work; that park might suggest the feeling of relaxation and the function of refreshment. When you have defined your feeling and function, try to see what part they play in your waking life and what the other details of the dream say about them.

Bear in mind, too, that you need to consider personal associations. A countryside walk may conjure up an image of heaven for some people but of hell for others, particularly if they suffer from severe hay fever.

Interpreting the symbolism of the dream setting can give you an insight into your own inner landscape.

If the setting is familiar, look out for symbols of your work or home situation to decide whether the dream is about your professional or personal life. Such a scene may also take you back to childhood or a time of learning.

If the setting is not familiar, or from your past, think about how it may relate to the emotional climate of a current situation. Recurring landscapes in dreams indicate feelings to which you often return; if the same scenes recur, they suggest habitual attitudes with which you approach a situation. Recurring scenes of your past represent a stance you developed at that time in your life. Although landscapes do tend to reflect habitual feelings rather than temporary moods, if the landscape does change in your dream, perhaps you need to make corresponding changes in your everyday life or in your approach to life. Composite scenes, consisting of many images that you recognize in one setting, are usually drawing your attention to particular qualities or moods which have relevance to the content of the dream. The country where your dream is set may also have significance. See also FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

Bear in mind, too, that the light, the weather and other features of your dream landscape all contribute to the setting and are all saying something about your mood or the feelings the dream inspires. Light is a common symbol of consciousness, so a sunny landscape will indicate clarity and awareness and a bright and sunny place will suggest fun and liveliness. Dark places in general represent the unconscious, although landscapes that become dark or dreary during the course of the dream may also refer to your subjective view of the world; for example, a dark shadowy murky scene signifies feelings of depression. A place that becomes lighter and brighter during your dream suggests possibilities and potentials, whilst the dim illumination of moonlight is a common symbol of intuition.

The nature of the weather in your dream will also express how you are feeling. Bad weather may foretell of troubles lying ahead, rain falling may indicate a release of tension, whilst the appearance of a rainbow across the landscape might suggest your troubles have found some sort of resolution. A beautiful place in a dream may be encouraging you to use your creative imagination in waking life, a sheltered place might be offering peace and security, unknown places could be revealing aspects of yourself of which you may be unsure and wide open spaces offer you a taste of freedom from confinement, whether emotional or physical.

The structure of the landscape also reflects your feelings about the content of your dream. A landscape that is hard to travel over or live in says much about the emotional or practical obstacles in your waking life. Your dream may have created a symbolic scenario to show you the things that are preventing you from being happy and fulfilled.

What you see lying ahead of you in a dream, such as a mountain or a flight of stairs, is significant as it represents the challenges you have yet to face. Obstacles in dream landscapes may express your everyday concerns. For example, you may find it impossible to cross a busy street in your dream; the street may well be a symbol of an impending exam.

If some aspect of your dream landscape did not seem right or was out of proportion, perhaps you are not seeing things straight in waking life. In your dream, look out for other symbols that suggest some aspect of your waking life is out of proportion; if your dream has a surreal or supernatural elements, refer to the chapter on SURREALISM AND FANTASY....
