What Does It Mean if You Dream about Dragons?

Dragons are mystical creatures that appear, in one shape or another, in almost every single culture in the world. They usually are linked with magic, longevity, fate and other positive concepts like personal empowerment, growth, and creativity. If you dream about dragons, it’s most likely a good omen, but it still greatly depends on all the details included in your dream.

To truly understand why you have been dreaming about dragons, we will further analyze the different aspects of this particular dream and what it might mean, as well as what kind of message your subconscious might be trying to give you.

Seeing A Dragon

This is certainly a special kind of dream. It will not be a frequent one and you should try and remember every detail you noticed as it might grant you further understanding of what your subconscious is trying to tell you. Dragons are special creatures, mythical and ancient, deeply connected to a lot of positive traits and messages.

If you dream about dragons flying around you, but you don’t interact with them, this means you are finally ready to face a fear you might have been holding onto for a long time. It represents a desire to finally let go of the past and move one, and it might also mean it’s the right time to finally take a leap of faith and go after your dreams.

You may have been considering starting your own business, putting a downpayment for a new house or even asking the person of your dreams out: If this is the case, then this is the right time to finally do it. Only good things will come if you dare follow your dreams.

The Dragons are Scary and Intimidating

If you dream about dragons that are acting violently or you experience a feeling of dread while watching them around you, this is a warning that something is not right at your home. It might be a problem with your daughters or sons, your partner, your siblings or even your parents. You might not know about it, at least not consciously, but it’s causing great distress to your loved ones.

It might be a good idea to sit down with them and ask what’s going on and why they are mad, trying to solve the problem between the two of you. If you clear the air before it’s too late to make amends, the issue will be solved, but don’t let too much time slip by, as it might be beyond repair by then.

This might be considered a bad dream, but in reality, it’s a piece of good advice you should follow in order to be close to your loved ones again.

Riding A Dragon

If you dream about riding a dragon, then this means that you finally have managed to take control of your temper, especially if you used to have a problem with managing your anger.

This is a good sign that shows great personal growth. You will continue to improve as a person and let go of the problems and fears that took over your life before this day, but it’s important that you make an effort to have this happen. 

After all, you can’t just sit back and expect change to happen without you doing anything about it. If you make a determination to change your life around, this dream is the perfect sign that shows you that you will indeed be successful.

Though this can certainly be intimidating, it can also be a fascinating and beautiful sight. The significance of this dream depends on how you felt during the course of it.

If you feel scared or apprehensive, then this is certainly a bad sign. It might mean that you should be careful around fire, since you could be involved in an accident involving it. You should handle appliances that could catch in an electrical fire and fireplaces with great care during the following few weeks just to be on the safe side.

It can also signify you are not in charge of your emotions and are prone to losing your temper. You should be mindful of the way you react as it might bring you problems with the people you love and those you work with. Unless you control your anger issues, you will eventually get into trouble you won’t easily escape from.

If, on the other hand, you feel in awe of this sight, then it means that someone in your life will protect you at all costs and that you are deeply loved. The fire is a symbol of their watchful care. You should show your appreciation for this person, be it a parent, partner or even friend, as they are greatly loyal and will always be there for you in a time of need.

Turning Into A Dragon

If instead of having a dream about dragons, it’s you that turns into one, then this is a sign of how protective you are of those around you. You are a loyal, kind-hearted person and there is someone in your life that might need your help. Try and figure out who it is that requires your aid and give them a helping hand, as you can positively affect their life by intervening.

Remember to be patient with them as they might be hesitant actually telling you about the problem they are facing. In the end, though, they’ll be appreciative of your help and happy you were there for them in a time of need.

If during the dream you not only turn into a dragon but you also find yourself watching your den and treasure, this is a symbol of your bravery and kindness. You have a good heart and it’s time you use your skills to help those around you, maybe by accepting a calling you have been denying for some time now. It might involve accepting a job that pays less money but helps a lot of people or even volunteering in some non-profit organization. Try to look inside your heart and figure out how you can help those around you, it will be deeply rewarding in the end.
