The Dream Meanings of Fields

January 19, 2024

Psychological

The symbol of a field in a dream is ambiguous. It either means that the dreamer is entering a fertile phase of life or that they have a specific problem that will soon need to be ‘worked on’. The field is considered a primal image of the maternal (the desire for a child and motherhood), fertility, and connection with our natural forces. Its appearance in a dream indicates inner, psychological grounding and strength, and also symbolizes feminine aspects – the more beautiful and healthier the field appears in the dream, the stronger the dreamer’s primal psychological power. The following specifics should be noted:

  • Those who energetically work the field will achieve their goals in love and have a fulfilling sexual life; those who see it in a dream are reminded of their duties.
  • If the field is in full bloom or bearing rich fruit, this can indicate for the dreamer the beginning of a particularly fruitful phase of life, as the seeds have borne fruit.
  • A cultivated field can promise a rich harvest for the effort; if grain is growing on it, according to Indian dream interpretation, this is encouraging, as one will find a way out of a difficult situation.
  • Dreams of ripe grain in a summery agricultural landscape stand for the longing for a natural, down-to-earth way of life without stress and the hustle of city life. One wishes to escape the daily grind, preferably to ‘drop out’.
  • If it is harvested or its clods are hard and crusted, this indicates a problem that the dreamer can overcome only with persistent diligence, or dangers that they have brought upon themselves through their own mishaps. However, those who dream of dry fields and hard-crusted earth in an existing conflict situation are called upon to abandon their rigid attitudes and become more ‘permeable’ to the opinions of others.
  • An uncultivated field usually stands for failures that one has brought upon oneself by not properly tending to one’s field; however, the symbol is not entirely unfavorable, as one can achieve success again through one’s own efforts.
  • A dry, barren field indicates neglected, unfulfilled sexual life as well as a strong longing for motherhood.

Spiritual

Field the symbol for fertility, the womb of mother earth, the connection with the forces of nature.

Artemidoros

Tilling the field, sowing, planting or plowing is a good omen for those who are eager to marry and for those who have no children – the field means nothing other than the woman, the seeds and the plants the children, namely wheat sons, barley daughters, legumes but miscarriages – for all other people it indicates effort and hardship. If someone in the dreamer’s house is ill, the person concerned will die, because seeds and plants are covered with earth, just like the deceased. If you see how the grain harvest, grape harvest and pruning of saplings are carried out at the wrong time, all our actions and undertakings are postponed to the same time and season.

Cultural Interpretations

Arabic

  • If one dreams of sowing wheat in their field and the seeds sprout well, they will be consumed with worries about hoped-for wealth. If they have sown barley, wealth will come immediately, as barley is horse feed. If they are legumes, there will be great disappointment in the hope of rich yield. If all the mentioned seeds do not grow well, they will shed their worries due to poor growth.
  • If someone digs up their field and eats from the excavated soil, they will acquire completely useless means, as the thrown-out soil cannot be eaten.

  • If a prince or emperor dreams that the fields in an unknown land are ready for harvest, he will gather the people and prepare for war, and the people will be ready to shed their blood when the day of harvest comes.
