Dreams about ice cream
Dreams about ice cream sound sweet and pleasant, but they could hide various meanings. While eating an ice cream is certainly a pleasure in reality, ice cream in our dreams does not always have fully positive meaning.
Dreams about ice cream could reflect a dreamer’s peace, pleasure and satisfaction with their reality, mostly regarding his or hers romantic and love life. An ice cream motif symbolizes joys of life, relaxation times, pleasure and satisfaction.
Ice cream in dreams could also represent desire, passion, lust, even gluttony and haughtiness. Dreams about all kinds of desserts could imply such concepts, but it depends on particular scenario (devouring sweet food is commonly associated with such ideas).
On the other side, ice cream is of an unsteady form; exposed to some heat, it melts down.
It represents instability, unsteadiness and transiency. It also reminds us that some pleasures are only temporary, which also has its good and bad side.
Dreams about ice cream suggest many things, you see. It is very likely that you would dream about eating an ice cream, if you really think of it in reality and you would like to eat it. However, if not, such dreams could be tricky.
