A dream about seeing a flare can symbolize a call for help or attention in your waking life. But as you know, a dream seldom has such a simple interpretation.

It may suggest that you are trying to communicate an urgent message or that you're feeling ignored or overlooked.

Alternatively, dreaming about using a flare indicates that you are the one seeking help or trying to draw attention to a situation. It could be a reflection of your feelings of desperation or urgency. Both of these dreams suggest a need for communication and recognition in your waking life.

A flare can be a somewhat deep and fascinating dream symbol to to give you a single meaning for. To really know for certain, it would be necessary to really get to know the dreamer's background and current mindset.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

In Freudian terms, a flare in a dream might symbolize a repressed desire to illuminate an obscured aspect of the self.

I'm also thinking generally about a flare: Seeing a flare could indicate an unconscious yearning for enlightenment or clarity about a personal issue. Using a flare, however, may suggest an active effort in the dreamer's waking life to bring a hidden or suppressed matter to light. Both of these dreams imply a struggle with self-awareness and a quest for personal truth. The flare, as a beacon, represents the ego's attempt to navigate the murky waters of the unconscious mind.

Dreaming about seeing a flare can be a spiritual signal, indicating a divine call to awaken and pay attention to a significant matter in your life. It's a celestial beacon, guiding you towards a path that needs illumination. Conversely, dreaming about using a flare signifies your spiritual desire to send out a distress signal or a call for divine intervention. It's a manifestation of your inner yearning to connect with the divine, seeking guidance or help in a situation. Both of these dreams reflect a spiritual journey, where you are either being guided by divine light or you are seeking it, emphasizing the importance of spiritual communication and recognition in your life.
