Dreaming of playing a fiddle signifies creativity, harmony, and the need for self-expression. It can be more nuanced than that though.

It may indicate that you're trying to manipulate a situation to your advantage, reflecting the phrase "playing second fiddle". Hearing a fiddle in your dream, by contrast, often represents joy, celebration, and communal unity. It could also suggest a longing for simpler times or a rural setting. Both of these dreams suggest a connection to your emotions and the need for self-expression.

A fiddle is difficult dream object to offer a firm opinion about. To really say with any kind of confidence, I'd need to understand the dreamer's life and current environment.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

Dreaming of playing a fiddle may symbolize a desire for mastery and control.

It's a complex concept though... The fiddle, a complex instrument, requires skill and precision, thus it can represent the intricate dynamics of the unconscious mind. It may also denote a need for emotional attunement, as the fiddle's music can evoke deep feelings. Conversely, hearing a fiddle in a dream can be a manifestation of the 'music' of your own psyche. It may reflect the harmonious or discordant aspects of your inner world. The sound could also be a call to listen more closely to your inner self. Both of these dreams, therefore, point towards a deeper engagement with one's emotional and psychological landscape.

Dreaming of playing a fiddle symbolizes your spiritual connection with the divine. It signifies your ability to create harmony and balance in your life, and your desire to express your spiritual self. It may also suggest your role as a spiritual guide, helping others to find their path. Hearing a fiddle in your dream, conversely, represents divine messages being conveyed to you. It's a call to listen to the spiritual guidance and wisdom that is being offered. It could also symbolize the joy and unity of spiritual communion. Both of these dreams highlight the importance of spiritual expression and receptivity in your life.
