Dreaming of a skylight, in Freudian terms, can be seen as a manifestation of the ego's desire for illumination, a yearning for the unconscious to be made conscious.

Dream concepts like a skylight can be multilayered, however. It is a symbol of the superego's aspiration for enlightenment and self-awareness. Looking through a skylight, on the other hand, could be interpreted as the id's longing for liberation, a wish to transcend the constraints of the ego and the superego. It's a metaphorical gaze towards the infinite, the unknown, the 'other'. If the skylight is obstructed or murky, it may signify resistance to introspection or fear of confronting repressed desires or traumas. Thus, the skylight in dreams serves as a potent symbol of the psyche's quest for self-understanding and transcendence.0

Dreaming of a skylight or peering through one can be seen as a spiritual invitation to connect with the divine. The skylight, a portal to the heavens, symbolizes your soul's yearning for divine wisdom and enlightenment. It's a call to transcend the mundane and reach for the celestial. If the skylight is clear, it suggests your spirit is ready to receive divine guidance. If it's obscured, it may indicate spiritual blockages that need clearing. Looking through a skylight signifies your soul's quest for higher consciousness, a longing to merge with the infinite. It's a reminder to not just look at the world around you, but also to look up and beyond, to the spiritual realm.
