Just picture birthdays when you were small. A whole day dedicated to you, spending time with the people you loved, and there was probably some cake and presents involved, too!
Recall the joy that you felt, and how you were perfectly happy living in the moment. You weren’t worrying about the past or the future.
Remember this feeling, and you’re halfway there to what a dream of a birthday signifies.
A dream like this is usually very positive. Take it as a sign of future happiness, enjoying time with the people you love the most, and an excuse to celebrate any wins you’ve recently had, or problems you’ve recently overcome.
Let’s take a closer look.
What Does It Mean To Dream Of A Birthday?
Birthdays in dreams are generally interpreted as an excellent sign for the future, where you may have a respite from current problems, enjoy time with the people closest to you, or find your energies completely restored.
Regardless of whether you dream of your own birthday or someone else’s, this dream scenario is a sign of good luck. If you dream of getting gifts for your birthday, this tells you exactly how much good luck is on your side, in the number of the gifts.
But the details do influence the meaning behind our dream. Dreaming of being a part of someone else’s birthday implies that this person will soon help you to do something you can’t do on your own. It will be vital for you to repay them in some form.
Dreaming of a children’s birthday party can represent your innermost vulnerable self, the childlike aspect of your psyche. It can be a call to make sure you don’t skimp on happy occasions or chances to enjoy yourself. Life can be hard enough without doing that.
A dream where you blow out some candles and make a wish implies that you should take a closer look at your relationships. It may be that one of them needs your attention, or your advice.
Or, blowing out the candles of a birthday cake implies that a wish will be fulfilled.
Seeing people dance at a birthday party implies that you should expect some positive news soon, from or about a friend.
Dreaming of setting up for a birthday party is a good sign. It suggests that you’re laying the groundwork for a successful business relationship or a more secure future.
Or, preparing for a birthday party can suggest that you’re expecting some news, soon. You’re optimistic about the way things may turn out.
Not all birthday party dreams are as good as these, however. In some cases, the details of your dream can flip the meaning, and here are a few examples to watch out for.
If you dream of being at a birthday party you didn’t enjoy the first time around, and you repeat the experience, this implies that you’re about to have an argument with someone you love, or be torn in a conflict.
Dreaming of being uncomfortable at a birthday party before you’re responsible for your own finances suggests that you will have some money problems soon, while being an adult and having this dream implies that you feel cut off from others.
If you dream of being absolutely bored out of your mind at a birthday party, this suggests that you are at odds with the people you love.
Maybe you’ve had an argument, or they aren’t seeing your side of the story, or you don’t agree with something they’ve done.
A Birthday Dream Is A Positive Sign, If:
- You enjoy the birthday
- The birthday is yours
- You are included in the celebrations
- You eat a birthday cake
- You see lots of birthday decorations
- You see lots of birthday gifts
Birthdays in dreams are widely regarded as one of the most positive dream scenarios around. That is, if you feel good during the dream, if nothing bad happens, and you see lots of gifts or decorations.
A dream of a birthday points to a perfect time in the future, where you won’t concentrate on your worries, the past, or anything else that may take you away from the present moment.
