Dreaming of a cherub often hints at innocence, purity, and the need for protection or guidance. But the meaning can vary.

It may indicate a desire to return to a more innocent time in your life or a need for spiritual guidance. If you're interacting with a cherub, it could suggest you're seeking divine intervention or wisdom in some aspect of your life. It may also represent a message from your subconscious about nurturing and caring for others. Cherubs are also associated with love and romance, so dreaming of one could indicate a new or blossoming relationship.

A cherub can be a rich and colorful dream symbol to offer a firm opinion about. To say for certain, I'd want to really get to know the dreamer's background and current situation.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of a cherub, in Freudian terms, may be a representation of the id's manifestation of primal innocence and unblemished desires.

Somewhat similarly: It's a symbol of the unconscious yearning for uncorrupted joy and serenity. Interacting with a cherub could be a projection of the ego's attempt to reconcile with the id, suggesting a struggle to balance primal desires with societal norms. This interaction could also symbolize the superego's influence, indicating a moral or ethical dilemma. The cherub's association with love and romance may reflect the libidinal energy or Eros, hinting at latent or repressed romantic desires. Therefore, such dreams could be a call to introspect and harmonize the conflicting aspects of one's psyche.0

Dreaming of a cherub signifies a divine connection, a spiritual message from the higher realms. It's a symbol of purity, innocence, and divine love, suggesting a spiritual awakening or a call to embrace these qualities within yourself. Interacting with a cherub in a dream indicates a direct communication with the divine, a guidance or wisdom that you're seeking in your life journey. It's a call to listen to your inner voice, to trust in divine timing and guidance. This interaction can also symbolize a need for self-love and self-care, as cherubs are associated with love and nurturing. It's a reminder that you are loved and protected by the divine.
