Moths in dreams are a common occurrence, and often cause a great deal of confusion for those who encounter this. It’s hard enough to remember dreams as it is, how is it possible that i remember something as insignificant as a moth.
Moths symbolism in dreams can be diverse, and to pinpoint the exact meaning context is key. We’ve written this guide to provide a definitive insight into moth symbolism in dreams, touching on a range of concepts and including relevant examples.
Moths in Dreams Could Mean Interference
The presence of a moth in your dream may represent something or someone that is getting in your way. This is usually common when you are annoyed with how someone is interfering in your life, and having too much of an influence on your ability to live.
The moth may also be symbolising an interference in your life that you are unable to control and have to tackle head on. For example, it is common to see a moth after losing a love one, and having to arrange for a funeral. You are forced to change your life to accomodate this, even though it is an unwelcome burden.
Dream interpreters often consider moths to represent a personal weakness when appearing in one’s dream.
This ties back to the self-destructive nature of the moth, who as we found when reviewing common concepts has a fixated attraction to lunar energy and light. For this reason, it is commonly thought that moths can represent a transient side to an individual’s demeanor.
Moths often represent self-doubt in dreams, highlighting an individual’s mistrust in someone or those close to them. This is often interpreted as the meaning when moths annoy us in our dreams, flying in our personal space or landing on our person.
As we learnt in moths spiritual meanings, the moth may be telling us to avoid overthinking and go with our intuition. Moths may resemble uncertainty but this should serve as a timely reminder to go with your instincts.
