The meaning of Sky in dream | Dream interpretation
(see Blue, Clouds, Space)
Frequently a masculine symbol. Both Hindus and Native Americans speak of “father sky” (see Men).
An alternative, higher level of awareness. Possibly a type of flying or ascent dream.
The transcendent, limitless self.
An image that reconnects the dreamer to her / his heritage as a universal being (see Star).
A dream of observing the night sky may be a hint that you intend to reach as high as you can in your particular field.
In dreams, the sky often represents the mind or your thoughts. It can also suggest your potential. Floating or flying in the sky can indicate that you are trying to avoid the mundane or are exploring your potential.
If the sky is dark, it can suggest a mood of gloom; but if the sky is bright, it suggests joy. The daytime sky represents infinity and a star-studded sky is a symbol of the unconscious.
Jung saw the night sky as the most suitable place onto which people could project their unconscious desires. The symbolism of the constellations and Zodiac signs are archetypal expressions of the inner world of the unconscious. The image of a blue sky in your dreams may suggest spiritual aspirations but it is also a symbol of contentment. Most dream traditions suggest that to dream of a blue sky brings good luck, whilst cloudy skies are a harbinger of misfortune. Some claim that to dream of a red sky foretells a terrible disaster that will befall the nation. See also SPACE AND SCIENCE.
The only way is up; lack of limitations. The sky’s the limit. Move toward highest goal. Freedom, expansion.
The omen here depends on the weather details.
A dear sky, whether light or dark, signifies happy times ahead; a few clouds, dispersing, are a sign of minor difficulties easily overcome; a few clouds, gathering, indicate obstacles which will require more effort; and a stormy sky portends a period of stress that will require courage and determination.
A gray sky is a sign of reliable friends who will stand by you in all kinds of weather.
A bright sky, flecked with fleecy clouds, predicts that you will enter upon a period of affiuence.
It symbolizes your aspirations, your deepest desires, the ultimate meaning of your actions. Not surprisingly, except in Egypt, the sky has always been associated with the masculine, to the active and to the spirit (the land, however, is linked to the feminine and passive).
If in dreams you look at the sky during daylight, it is a sign of openness and clarity in your aims. The night sky, in turn, indicates order, and balance when it is starry. For Jung, at nightfall, the sky was the most appropriate place for the subject to project her unconscious. The symbolism of the constellations and zodiac signs, therefore, are archetypal expressions of the subject’s inner world.
Many oneiric superstitions agree that dreaming of a blue sky heralds good luck.
If it is cloudy, quite the opposite. On the other hand, some believe that a red sky in dreams portends a national disaster.
To dream of the sky, signifies distinguished honors and interesting travel with cultured companions, if the sky is clear. Otherwise, it portends blasted expectations, and trouble with women.
To dream of floating in the sky among weird faces and animals, and wondering all the while if you are really awake, or only dreaming, foretells that all trouble, the most excruciating pain, that reach even the dullest sense will be distilled into one drop called jealousy, and will be inserted into your faithful love, and loyalty will suffer dethronement.
To see the sky turn red, indicates that public disquiet and rioting may be expected. See Heaven and Illumination.

A cloudy sky: worries, obstacles, or an uncertain future.

Dreaming about “being in heaven,” or “seeing heaven” means you have either reached this state or are striving to get there. Do you feel like being in “seventh heaven” right now? Sec the chapter “Colors in Dreams—Blue.”
The sky usually signifies peace and freedom of expression when it is clear and blue.
If cloudy and overcast, the sky may be forecasting sadness and trouble.
To dream of looking up at the clear blue sky implies that your life is full of serenity, and you are open and able to speak your mind.

The sky spiritually suggests infinity and that which is above and beyond us – a representation of the ultimate. It also signifies order, particularly that applied to the intuitive function.
Psychological / emotional perspective: The sky signifies the unattainable. Whatever effort we make we can never make the sky tangible. This is one reason why the sky gods were so important in more primitive cultures.
Material aspects: In dreams the sky can represent the mind and signify our potential. Floating or flying in the sky can be ambivalent, since it can either mean trying to avoid the mundane, or exploring a different potential.
If the sky is dark or cloudy it may reflect our mood of gloominess; if it is bright, our mood of joy.
Sunny skies denote happiness and prosperity, while cloudy or stormy skies foretell trouble ahead, perhaps family quarrels.
The day sky represents the ability to see clearly, while the night sky hints at things hidden from view.
The night sky, however, can also represent comfort and security.
A sky full of stars, like sunny skies, is an omen of hope, and great opportunities lie ahead.
The sky is the enormous part of our world that is everything that the earth is not. In this way, the sky is a symbol for the endless capacity of the human imagination. For some, this expansiveness is so enormous that it includes the concept of God. Anything that involves the sky in the landscape of a dream represents this upward-soaring element of the human psyche. Consider what is happening in the sky in your dream, and add that quality, experience, or sensation to your aspirational sensibilities. What is happening in your highest thoughts will be happening in the sky of your dreams, whether positive or negative. Remember that things can “fall out of the sky,” which represents sudden, unexpected experiences; again, those can be either positive or negative.

The mind; our potential. Dream scenes such as the sky opening and people or objects appearing, or threatening things falling from the sky, are graphic descriptions of how suddenly a new thought or viewpoint or event appears from nowhere; or for no apparent reason anxious or depressing thoughts occur ‘out of the blue’. Floating, flying in sky: avoiding anxiety; escape into daydreaming or the mind; having a wider awareness of a situation; exploring potential. Colour, mood of sky: our view of life at the moment. Idioms: sky’s the limit; sky high, pie in the sky; out of the blue. See flying; space.
(1) From Dvaus-pita (‘Sky-father’) of pre-Hindu India (with equivalents throughout the primitive world) to the Christian ‘Father which art in heaven’, sky and God have been closely associated in mythology.
It is not surprising, therefore, if sky symbolizes something transcendent: for example, your true (but not yet achieved) self.
(2) Sky may symbolize the realm of consciousness as distinct from earth or sea, representing the unconscious realm. See also Bird, Flying.
