When we look at the past, we can see that the Umbrella is seen as the status symbol, and in a symbolical way, it was (still is to a certain extent) as the representation of power and was an attribute of a deity.
Nowadays, Umbrellas are a more practical then symbolical thing – it protects from the rain, but it is also a fashion accessory.
The place of the origin of the Umbrella is not known – maybe China or Egypt, perhaps India, where it was seen as the symbol of a deity.
In some cases, the Umbrella is the representation of the sky, the fertility goddess that also protects people.
Does this motive keep the same meaning when it is connected to the dream world? Well, it all depends on how you dreamed of it… Keep reading…
Meaning and Symbolism
First of all, if you had a dream about an Umbrella, know that it has different interpretations.
Of course, it differs from the way we dreamed it – it depends on the appearance of the Umbrella, its color, in what activity this object is involved.
So, let us begin – if you had a dream about an Umbrella as is, with no specific details about it, in that case, such a dream suggests that in reality,
You are seeking protection and support from someone around you. Be careful not to ask for it from someone who is not trustworthy. It should be a member of your family or a close friend who is influential in society.
Don’t worry, and it’s the person who cares about you, and that will help you for sure.
One more dream is very common among dreamers – the one in which you see an Umbrella that would not open. This dream does not carry good symbolism – such a dream indicates that it will not arrive from the person you expect help from. It is the matter of your expectations that do not match the reality of a situation.
This dream has an alternate variant – if the Umbrella is opened only after a few attempts, it could mean that the person will help you, but not when you insist on it, but when it suits him. What you feel about this reveals a lot about your attitude in life. Are you doing the one who shuts your eyes to such events? Arm yourself with patience, in this case, and you will need it.
To dream that an Umbrella that has holes on it, that is leaking on few spots, means that you will not be able to protect yourself from malicious people at work, so you should team up with someone to get through the situation.
If you dreamed that the wind broke the Umbrella, you are carrying it in your hands, and you would need a lot of effort and patience to get out of your situation. It is like patience is the trait you need to work on from now on; it is a tedious task but worthy.
If you dreamed that someone stabbed you with an Umbrella (with the tip of it), it means that someone who has protected you so far will stop doing that. This dream does not have good symbolism because it is about stabbing from the hand of the person you had an endless trust.
Try to think about who it could be and be careful not to intentionally provoke anger in that person who has met you in many life situations so far.
In a version of a dream where you are the one who is stabbing someone else with an Umbrella, such a dream symbolizes quite the opposite, and that is that you have met someone whenever he called for help and supports in life, but for some reason, that person made you very angry, and you are not ready to do bad things to him. Forgive that person soon, and you will be much easy.
Decoding the Dream about Umbrella
Dream about an Umbrella can go even further – for example, in the version of a dream where you are holding tightly to it while a strong wind lifts you into the air with it means that you should give up something you are hooked on after.
It could be that it is some expensive thing that you have decided to buy and you do not have enough money, or you are even trying to fit into a society that does not accept you or whatever you have decided to do by force and against yourself.
Some things are simply not destined to happen, and it would be best for you to simply accept it and allow destiny to play a role in your life course.
Do you know about an old superstition where it is believed that when you open an Umbrella inside of a house, it is a bad sign? In the same context, when you open and Umbrella in the home, in a dream, it indicates that home safety is endangered. You may have heard that someone in your neighborhood has been robbed or even injured in an attempted robbery, so you care about the safety of both you and your family.
To be calm nowadays, there are various types of protection for your home, and do not hesitate to take advantage of the services and technologies that the twenty-first century offers us.
In this sense, if the dream you have shown you defending yourself using an Umbrella as a weapon, such a dream may come as a representation that you are bound to dominate a current situation.
Dreaming that you hit someone with an Umbrella means that this fight, whatever it may be, will be unresolved. You will come across a credible opponent who will be able to match you in everything, so you will need reinforcements to triumph. It is not a waste of time. Just try to think in that context and focus your strength, having in mind a possible triumph.
Dreams in which you see an Umbrella getting out of your hand due to a strong wind could mean that turbulent times are ahead of you, and you must be prepared for it, with some kind of protection if possible.
It could be a person or a piece of good advice. This could mean that the situation you have kept under control so far will become more complicated and that you will no longer be able to control it.
You will probably miss some very important detail that will lead to this.
Try to think about what it is that you are or are about to miss because you have relaxed too much.
