A dream about a fountain signifies spiritual refreshment. It can be more nuanced than that though.

It suggests a release of emotions and cleansing of negative thoughts. If you're drinking from the fountain, it indicates spiritual or emotional nourishment. Playing in a fountain, by contrast, suggests a playful and carefree attitude towards life. It's a symbol of joy and happiness, indicating that you're content with your current state of affairs. Both of these dreams highlight the importance of emotional and spiritual well-being.

A fountain can often be a deep and multifaceted dream object to really clarify. To say confidently, it's really necessary to get more information about the dreamer's life story and current life scenario.

2. The psychoanalyst's interpretation

In the Freudian context, a fountain in dreams may symbolize the unconscious mind, a reservoir of thoughts, desires, and memories.

Getting a bit more complex: Dreaming of a fountain could indicate a need to delve into this unconscious realm, perhaps to confront repressed emotions or unresolved issues. Drinking from the fountain might suggest a thirst for self-knowledge or a desire to integrate these unconscious elements into conscious awareness. Playing in a fountain, however, might represent a more lighthearted engagement with the unconscious, perhaps a willingness to explore one's inner world with curiosity and playfulness. Both of these dreams underscore the importance of engaging with the unconscious in the process of self-understanding and personal growth.

Dreaming of a fountain symbolizes the divine flow of life's energy, a connection to the spiritual realm. It's a sign of spiritual awakening and the release of suppressed emotions. Drinking from the fountain signifies a thirst for spiritual wisdom and enlightenment, a desire to absorb divine knowledge. It's a call to nourish your soul and align with your higher self. Playing in a fountain, however, represents the joy of spiritual discovery, a celebration of your spiritual journey. It's an invitation to embrace life with a childlike wonder, to find joy in the spiritual exploration. Both of these dreams emphasize the importance of spiritual growth and the pursuit of divine wisdom.
