Meaning of Dreams: Words beginning with S
Stare – Dreaming that you are staring at something
Dreaming that you are staring at something or someone can suggest that you need to take a closer look at your waking life situation to understand it better.
Staring at something but not doing anything else can suggest that you let life pass you by. You need to take action if you want things to change in your waking life.
If someone is staring at you in your dream, then this can suggest that you wish someone would notice you in your waking life. This dream could alternatively suggest that you feel like you are only being noticed for your faults. Either way, this can be a sign of low self-esteem.
Seeing a starfish in your dream can suggest that you need to take some time to allow your emotions to heal.
This dream could alternatively suggest that you need to pick between many different options, which is likely stressing you out in your waking life.
Seeing a clear sky full of stars can be a prediction of good health and general good luck to come your way shortly. If the stars are dull or oddly colored, this can instead predict that bad luck and sadness will come your way.
