Dream Dictionary Meaning For Red

Red is a color that often crops up in dreams. Its meaning within a dream really depends on other factors or other symbols within the dream itself. There are three basic meanings for this color:

Firstly, it is a symbol of love. Red has long been connected symbollically with love. A heart is always shown as red. Red is the most common color chosen for a rose when it is being given as an indication of someone's love.

Secondly, red can be a warning. We all know that "red means danger". It is used in that context in our everyday life. Probably the simplest commonly observed use of red is with traffic lights. When the lights are red - you stop. Why? Because going on at that point would be extremely dangerous. This can be a very potent symbol within a dream.

Thirdly, red can be an indication of anger. The common expression to "see red" has this very meaning. If you are pretty confident that red in your dream doesn't indicate love or a warning then it may well be that your dream indicates that there is underlieing anger (even if you're not aware of it) or that it is a hint that there is something you should be angry about. If you can't think of anything that you personally should be angry about then it's possible that you're being told that someone else is angry and you don't realize it. Quite possibly with you.

The context in which the color appears within your dream will be the biggest indication you have as to which meaning is correct.
